Quotable Quotes:

"I think my first instrument was a ukulele that they gave me. I used to know how to play that pretty well."

"Now everyone dreams of a love faithful and true, But you and I know what this world can do."

"Continuous efforts - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential. "

"My father was an avid gardener. On many a summer morning he rousted me out of bed well before sunup and handed me a hoe. We had more than an acre to tend, and the objective was to get as much as possible done before the sun got too high in the sky and the temperature rose above 100. The humidity in that region, while good for the skin and for growing vegetables, is oppressive, and heat exhaustion is always a possibility in summer. On several occasions my thoughts turned patricidal. But as the years have passed, I have grown to appreciate what my dad taught me, not only about growing things in the earth, but also about responsibility and the value of hard, physical work. I now derive physical and spiritual pleasure from gardening. All this galls me a little, because my dad always said it would turn out this way." (IMDB)

"All you need to start an asylum is an empty room and the right kind of people."

"Donald Henley was an American football player and manager who played for the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Colts. (V)"

"Donald Henley was an incredible man and an even more incredible musician. He will never be forgotten, and we can all only hope that he is in a better place. (V)"
