    There is no sound more annoying than the chatter of a child, and none more sad than the silence they leave when they are gone.”

    A couple of quotes from tomorrow's Sunday Adult Class lesson:

    "None of us really changes over time, we just become more of what we are." (Lestat)

    "If... you seek Jesus in all things you will surely find him. Likewise, if you seek yourself you will find yourself... to your own ruin." (Thomas à Kempis)

    “You have not kept the command the Lord your God gave you; if you had, he would have established your kingdom over Israel for all time. But now your kingdom will not endure; the Lord has sought out a man after his own heart and appointed him ruler of his people, because you have not kept the Lord’s command.” (The prophet Samuel, 1.13:13-14)

    I love this book. Of Mice and Men is definitely one of my favorite books of all time. George and Lennie's relationship was kind of tragic. Such a sad ending.

    "It surpasses strange that the white race ethnically cleansed North America of its aboriginal inhabitants and then proceeded to name just about anything that could be named for them. Sioux City. Cheyenne, Wyoming. Cochise County, Arizona. Pontiac. Mohawk. The Atlanta Braves. Red Cloud, Nebraska is the eponym for the Oglala Sioux war leader who waged a textbook guerrilla campaign in the traditional Sioux lands for a decade."

    "The Longest Road: Overland in Search of America, from Key West to the Arctic Ocean," Philip Caputo, p. 140
