“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” 
Grandkids Seth and Maizy dancing on the top deck of an Alaska Cruise ship!

“I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind.
Some come from ahead and some come from behind.
But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see.
Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”

“Today you are You, that is truer than true.
There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”

Lucy at the beach

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”
Sherilee, Greg and Shelby

“You can get help from teachers, but you are going to have to learn a lot by yourself, sitting alone in a room.”
Maizy Lee

“And will you succeed?
Yes! You will indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed)”

“I meant what I said and I said what I meant,
An elephant's faithful, one hundred percent!
Maizy, the Birthday Princess

“It's a troublesome world. All the people who're in it
are troubled with troubles almost every minute.
You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot,
for the places and people you're lucky you're not.”

“So you see! There's no end to the things you might know,
Depending how far beyond Zebra you go.”
“As you partake of the world's bill of fare,
that's darned good advice to follow.
Do a lot of spitting out the hot air.
And be careful what you swallow.”
Shelby getting fed

Fun is good.”
Lucy loving the hot tub with Grandpa

Oh, the things you can think up if only you try!”
