"The past is always tense, the future perfect."  ---Zadie Smith


A cop won’t pick you up for vagrancy in Los Angeles if you wear a fancy polo shirt and a pair of sunglasses. But if there is dust on your shoes and that sweater you wear is thick like the sweaters they wear in the snow countries, he’ll grab you. So get yourself a polo shirt boys, and a pair of sunglasses, and white shoes, if you can.

What a lovely thread this is! I love reading new quotes and save them for later. These are some of my favorite ones (the authors are unknown):"No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart ." "God is the best listener, you don't need to shout, nor cry out loud. Because he hears even the very silent prayer of a sincere heart." "Good friends are like stars, you don't always see them, but you know they're always there." Hope to see this thread alive again
