An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown





I grew up in dirt-poor hillbilly country. We lived this dry-below-the-waist kind of scene. If you were a sensual woman, you were in league with that which is un-Christlike. Where I come from, a cockroach is a roach, and a cockerel is a rooster because they can't bring themselves to say cock.


Tori Amos (1963-, Canadian-born American musician, singer, songwriter)


Unless we take an active role in the lives of our communities, our communities will fail.


William Aramony


In communities where men build ships for their own sons to fish or fight from, quality is never a problem


J. A. Dever


Community is not made by force.


Afghani Proverb


We must join together -- parents, teachers, grass -- roots groups, organized labor and the business community -- to revitalize American education by setting a standard of excellence.


Ronald Reagan (1911-2004, American President (40th))

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962, American First Lady, columnist, lecturer, humanitarian)

Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962, American First Lady, columnist, lecturer, humanitarian)


By union the smallest states thrive. By discord the greatest are destroyed.


Sallust (BC 86-34, Roman historian)


In order to stand well in the eyes of the community, it is necessary to come up to a certain, somewhat indefinite, conventional standard of wealth.
