Happy thoughts from this morning's picture books:
"So don't you feel blue. Don't get down in the dumps. You're lucky you don't have a Borfin that shlumps."
- from Dr. Seuss' Did I ever Tell You How Lucky You Are
"They're not what I wished for. When women are young they want curly-haired daughters and raven-haired sons. In this vale of tears we must take what we're sent, feathery, leathery, lovely, or bent."
-from Pish, Posh, Said Hieronymous Bosch by Nancy Willard
"Paradise lost is sometimes heaven found." -from Hey Al by Arthur Yorkins
