“Think what a better world it would be it we all — the whole world — had cookies and milk about three o’clock every afternoon and then lay down with our blankies for a nap … And it is still true, no matter how old you are — when you go out into the world, it best to hold hands and stick together.” Robert Fulghum

“Don’t try to be young, just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won’t live long enough to find out about, but I’m still curious about them.” Betty White

“Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery; he has been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life” G.K. Chesterton
