    But above all, pity those who live without love "


    Albus Dumbledore

    God and soldier all men adore,
    In times of danger and not before.
    When the danger is past and all is righted,
    God is forgotten and the old soldier slighted.

    Friar Tuck

    My favorite quote...

    "Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return."

    Not sure if true or not, but this one is attributed to Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf. When asked if he thought there was room for forgiveness toward the people who have harboured and abetted the terrorists who perpetrated the 9/11 attacks on America he is said to have replied:

    "I believe that forgiving them is God's function... OUR job is to arrange the meeting."
