"Books to the ceiling,
Books to the sky,
My pile of books is a mile high.
How I love them! How I need them!
I'll have a long beard by the time I read them."
- Arnold Lobel

"Serenity, courage, and wisdom are really big words.  Let's bring them down to size.  Serenity means having peace, no matter what is happening around you.  Courage is doing what is right, even when you are afraid.  And wisdom is doing things God's way."
