i think it is cool that Kanye likes to speak up. there have been times when I wish I’d said certain things. I agree “Put A Ring On It” is video of the year…BUT I KNOW if it had been someone he respected or feared… like jay Z or nas or 50 cent or whitney or madonna… he wouldn’t have said it even if it was true. he really disrespected taylor swift. that’s not manly or gentlemanly….

    “You will always remain in pain, till the pain of change becomes less than the pain of staying the same.” Something my Dad told me.

    “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.” Ralph Waldo Emerson.

    Love the quotes.

    “I love babies. I think they are beautiful in all sorts of different ways. I try to pick up and hold a baby every day, if possible, because it nourishes me. It feeds my soul. Babies are drawn to me. And I think it’s because they see me as one of them. But … cooler and with my life put together a little bit more. If a baby were president, there would be no taxes. There would be no war. There would be no … government, and … things could get terrible. And actually probably it would be a better screenplay idea than a serious suggestion.”

    Michael Scott

    These are all wise words filled with profound messages but I think I like Squidward’s the best. It’s funny because cartoons only last for 11 minutes each. I get it! I’m amazed. I usually let things go right over my head.

    Joan Crawford’s is the best.
