  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

That looks like so much fun! I am going to order that book this week!! Thanks for mentioning it, I meant to order it, but had forgotten! I think that will be our science next year!

I didn't know you liked USborne books. One of my good friends sells them and always lets me know when she is having sales and tells me to buy them for you all...but I've never seen them. Will keep in mind for the future. Love the monster.


We only have a couple of Usborne books, but really like the ones we have.  The science book is great - easy, quick projects with minimal ingredients required makes cute fun stuff.  The other one we have is called Under the Ground and it is great, too.
