H. G. Wells

William J. Clinton
Some stories are true that never happened.
The facts are always friendly, every bit of evidence one can acquire, in any area, leads one that much closer to what is true.
Baseball, it is said, is only a game. True. And the Grand Canyon is only a hole in Arizona. Not all holes, or games, are created equal.
Perhaps I can say that I am a bit astute, that I can adapt to circumstances, but it is also true that I am a bit naive. Yes, but the best summary, the one that comes more from the inside and I feel most true is this: I am a sinner whom the Lord has looked upon.
The true harbinger of spring is not crocuses or swallows returning to Capistrano, but the sound of the bat on the ball.

John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
