I bought a Jimmy Valvano cap years ago and I wore it so proudly. I just felt better with that cap on my head. I loved the quote "never give up" on that cap. Someone stole it from me and I havent been able to find another. Would anyone know where I might purchase another? ~ Roger

Whenever I see that painting 'The Scream,' I try to imagine that the man is wearing earphones and singing, because that way it looks like he's happy. - John Alejandro King (from 'My War On Terror!')

I often wish that when he received that car from Henry Ford he refused it, noting how the fumes it expelled soiled the air. I suppose he had no way of knowing how out of control it would all go, but I often wonder about a world without cars and planes... Amy

I once heard Maya Angelou say something on TV and am looking for the exact quote: It was something about "the way a child knows his parents love him is if their face lights up when he walks into the room." Can you help me locate this quote?? Thanks. Jenny

Hello. You might like to know that our just released (1 January 2008) book, Words to Inspire Writers, mentions your site in the Appendix of Useful Web Addresses - as one of 50 or so listed "websites containing General and Writing Quotations (that) should be a good starting point for any further browsing ("of Quotations on the World Wide Web")."

You might like to check out the FREE pdf Sampler for an idea of what our book is about, how your site is the perfect complement to it (and therefore worthy of inclusion), and why it might even be something your readers could be interested in (if you wished to spread the word...). Perhaps some quotations you do not list will be found in the Sampler? Should you mention our book anywhere we would love to hear about it. Thank you. F. C. Sach & Sons, Publishers

Just a note to say (again) how much I enjoy the Daily Celebration. Thank you for bringing some information and illumination to my mornings! I really enjoyed learning about Lord Acton today. We know so many famous quotes...or even mis-quotes!...but forget about the people who said them. ~ Thanks again...Sunnie

I am very happy to have found this site. I read Nelson Mandela's quotes... which seems to reflect lift as it is today, living this the West Coast. We need to adopt just one quote each day. This is truly an encouragement. ~ Barbara

Can you please tell me what is the name of the poem by D. H. Lawrence quoted Go deeper than love, for the soul has greater depths, love is like the grass, but the heart is deep wild rock...(I am a writer)

"Music washes away from the soul the dust of every day life." ~ Johann Sebastian Bach. I believe this quote should be attributed to Berthold Auerbach, according to several other websites...Chris

I read your daily celebrations every day and it has enriched my life in countless ways. I love the individuals that I learn about and their inspirational words. However I was quite dismayed at your page about Poker a few days ago. I don't understand why you would write about something that has caused untold pain to thousands of people. Gambling is a destructive addiction that has ruined individuals and families. I just wanted to let you know how I feel about it. ~ Bonnie

I need some information in regards to Edwin H. Land. I have 4 patents in my possesion, all from the attorney of Brown and Jones out of New York. I found them in a file cabinet in a gararge. I can give you the patent numbers if it would help. Let me know please. Also, there is original notes by Edwin Land on some of these patent. Thanks, Steve

P.S. Any information regarding those documents would be appreciated. How they ended up in Maine is a question also. That law firm is or was in New York.

Thanks for sending the daily celebrations (Peace Corps), but I must tell you. The quote, "For those to whom much is given, much is required," is from the Holy Bible. Luke 12:48. It was great for JFK to quote it, but it didn't originate with him. Thanks for sharing your great messages. ~ CB, from Louisiana

Hi there, I am finishing my final project (40 pages plus) for my Bachelor's of English Literature and my theme is the quest for home and how home is usually not found until one has accepted his or her idenity. I found some great quotes on your page to use, however I wondered if you had the direct source for one by Joan Didion, that talks about writing as assuaging homesickness. A book or article or page number would be great. Thanks for making such a fantastic site! Your loyal fan, Gillian

I LOVE you! I've been using your site for years -- I've been writing and publishing a weekly e-zine since 2001. Today, I clicked on "sadness" and was taken to the "depression" page. I'm pretty sure this is just a glitch -- I've been using your site for so long and have always found exactly what I've needed right away. Thanks again for doing such a great job. N. :-)

Hi DC.. I am also from Hawaii and also have a passion for poetry. My dad had such a beautiful gift of words and I am so blessed to have the same love for words a gift I thank the Lord for. Even so now as I battle a serious liver condition. I find comfort in writing and in encouraging others along the way as I journey with hope in my spirit. I have a blog called Encouragement from the heart. I love your site.. what an inspiration to my soul. Aloha Lorie

Oh, what a delightful, uplifting site! Today I read your essay on Little Engine That Could. I was reminded of when I was in labor with my dear son so many years ago. I used that same story and words to get me through. Thanks for the reminder now. God Bless.

I've asked any number of Vonnegut sites about a quote of his. I remember it was in the forward to one of his books, possibly WELCOME TO THE MONKEY HOUSE, he says words to this effect: "I don't believe in the brotherhood of man. Brothers fight too much. We should be cousins - cousins, you see on an annual basis, then they go home." I've not received a reply from any of the other sites. Can you find it? ~ Marty F.

Your quote from Karl Marx, "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." is actually from the Bible. I can't give you chapter and verse but I believe it is from the story where God give manna to the children of Israel when they wander in the desert. ~ Melissa
