Pull or Push?

A  L  O  H  A !
I've Grown Accustomed to Your Face by Sonny Rollins on Grooveshark

" Pull the string, 
and it will follow 
wherever you wish. 
Push it, 
and it will 
go 
nowhere at all. "
                 Dwight D. Eisenhower








Dwarf Pineapple

 “The present 
is the closest that 
you will ever get 
to the future.”  
                Mokokoma Mokhonoana








Palms About Town

" Poetry 
is an echo,
 asking a shadow 
to dance. "
             Carl Sandburg

Gosh!
I Love when You
Dance by here!

Wise Mokokoma Mokhonoana quote. It seems obvious when you think about it...but how many of us ever do that?

You gave us nice quotes for today! The Eisenhower one makes a lot of sense, both literally and metaphorically.

Love the dwarf pineapple, but it seems to be something of a wallflower. I'm dancing through hospitals for the next few days or weeks... my mom had a relapse, a bad one. Thanks for the inspiring posts.

So THAT's what poetry is! I've been wondering!

Pineapples come in dwarf size?

Birdman said...

Ike had right. I'm always amazed to watch people 'push the string'. Crazy. They think they are makin' progress.

RedPat said...

All the quotes were great today, Cloudia!

Mama Zen said...

That first quote is really neat!

Hilary said...

Especially nice quotes today, Cloudia.

Your first image is quintessential Hawaii.. Love the push/pull quote Claudia, so easy to push when you should pull :)

Kay said...

I am so tired. We had one set of guests last week and we have another guest coming in from Illinois tomorrow. I can't get anything done... present or future.

Cloudia said...

Oh I`m gonna study those quotes you all enjoyed so I can find more like them. Thanks!
