“It’s spring fever.  That is what the name of it is.  And when you’ve got it, you want – oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” — Mark Twain

“If you only had 48 hours left to live, would you spend it like you normally spend your weekends? If not, why spend 2/7th of your life wasting your free time? After all, free time isn’t free. Free time is the most expensive time you have, because nobody pays for it but you. But that also makes it the most valuable time you have, as you alone stand to reap the profits from spending it wisely.”

“For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race.”  ? C. JoyBell C.

“He doesn’t want to talk about it”

When I was at Wharton School.. this ignorant pig that uses the name Donald Trump was a guest lecturer. I believe it was a Tuesday night and it changed my life. His total lack of respect or empathy for (at that time in the early 80’s) tenants in buildings he purchased made me sick.
Just as he speaks now… with the lack of respect towards anyone who disagrees with him, he used every trick in the book and then appended the book to match his style to get people out of buildings. He was a capitalist… or was he just evil deep down inside. I thought I was a capitalist and I still do, however, I don’t think like “The Donald”… I have ethics both in life and in business.
I never liked him after that… and that single night at Wharton changed my outlook on life and it was the last semester I attended Wharton after fighting so hard.

LAS VEGAS — “He doesn’t want to talk about it.”

Or so said Michael Cohen, Donald Trump‘s spokesman, on the question of where President Obama was born.

Cohen, in a phone interview, called the renewed controversy over Trump’s questioning of whether Obama was born in the U.S. “a distraction,” and blamed it on “the liberal media.”

But five minutes after The Huffington Post talked to Cohen on the phone, a call to Trump’s New York offices resulted in the casino, real-estate and reality-TV mogul being patched through on the line, from here in Las Vegas.

Adding to the surreal nature of the day, Trump openly disagreed with his own spokesman’s assessment.

“I don’t imagine this is distraction at all,” Trump said. “In fact, we have a fundraiser that’s going to take place in a couple of hours, and I’m just walking through the lobby of Trump international and this place is packed.”

And that, in a nutshell, is the problem for Mitt Romney. read more…http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/05/29/donald-trump-mitt-romney_n_1554152.html
