Romney is a classic case of re-invention. As governor of Massachusetts, he supported government-sponsored healthcare, was sympathetic to gay rights, and opposed harsh restrictions on abortion. After measuring the difference between the Massachusetts electorate and the national one to which he must now appeal, he has reversed those positions.
'Easter' is a movable event, calculated by the relative positions of sun and moon, an impossible way of fixing year by year the anniversary of a historical event, but a very natural and indeed inevitable way of calculating a solar festival. These changing dates do not point to the history of a man, but to the hero of a solar myth.
Even the dullest bird or face becomes interesting when you give it a good look in the wild/flesh.

My heart always makes a little jump when I see things in birds or faces that surprise me.
Extreme positions are not succeeded by moderate ones, but by contrary extreme positions.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

Visual art and writing don't exist on an aesthetic hierarchy that positions one above the other, because each is capable of things the other can't do at all. Sometimes one picture is equal to 30 pages of discourse, just as there are things images are completely incapable of communicating.
William S. Burroughs
As you enter positions of trust and power, dream a little before you think.
We ought to have more women in various management positions, because women are the ones who decide almost everything in the home.
When you're younger, you see the people who are in power and think they must have that position because of some degree of skill. And as you get older, you realize it's not true, that most people in those positions are absolutely inept. And this naturally makes you feel better about yourself.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
