"Forever Lily" Quotes

I love this quote from the book "Forever Lily" by Beth Nonte Russell:

"Mindless practicalities always seem to get the upper hand over beautiful but unrealistic visions. Just once, I would like to see it go the other way." (p. 138)

and this one:

"We choose, we choose and then events confirm; events confirm and we choose again, a never ending process of creating our realities. Eventually those choices form a pattern of a life, and that pattern exerts an irresistible force upon all subsequent choices. It becomes more and more difficult to make a true change. And yet, it can be done. I have just lived it." (p. 123)

One of life's great questions

Why does my nose always itch when my hands are wet while washing dishes?

I think I must be allergic to that chore.
