    • We gather tonight knowing that this generation ofheroes has made the United States safer and morerespected around the world. For the first time in nine years,there are no Americans fighting in Iraq. For the first time intwo decades, Osama bin Laden is not a threat to thiscountry. Most of al Qaedas top lieutenants have beendefeated. The Talibans momentum has been broken, andsome troops in Afghanistan have begun to come home. These achievements are a testament to the courage,selflessness and teamwork of Americas Armed Forces. At atime when too many of our institutions have let us down,they exceed all expectations. Theyre not consumed withpersonal ambition. They dont obsess over their differences.They focus on the mission at hand. They work together. Imagine what we could accomplish if we followedtheir example. --President Barack Obama, State of the Union Address, 2012
    • I kept thinking about that movie with the muddy hand,though. I was afraid that if I was watching TV all bymyself late at night, the muddy hand might crawl outfrom under the couch and grab my foot or something. The way I solved the problem was by making atrail of clothes and other stuff all the way from mybedroom down to the family room. That way, I was ableto make it downstairs and back without ever touchingthe ground. This morning, Dad tripped over a dictionary I leftat the top of the stairs so he’s mad at me. But I’ll takeDad being angry over the alternative any day of theweek.
    • My new fear is that the hand is gonna crawl up on mybed and get me in my sleep. So lately, I’ve been coveringmy whole body with the blanket and leaving a hole so Ican breathe. But that strategy has its OWN risk. Roderick gotinto my room today, and I had to spend the morningtrying to wash the taste of a dirty sock out of my mouth. --Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, By Jeff Kinney

    • It’s miserable in Flobbertown,They dress in just one style.They sing one song, they never dance,They march in single file.They do not have a playground,And they do not have a park.Their lunches have no taste at all,Their dogs are scared to bark. --from, Hooray for Diffendoofer Day! by Dr. Seuss
