Charles M. Schulz Quote On Love

chocolate

“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.” ― Charles M. Schulz

Charles Monroe Schulz Bio- nicknamed Sparky, was an American cartoonist best known for the comic strip Peanuts (which featured the characters Charlie Brown and Snoopy, among others). He is widely regarded as one of the most influential cartoonists of all time, cited as a major influence by many later cartoonists, including Jim Davis, Bill Watterson, and Matt Groening.

The Complete Peanuts Vol. 1: 1950-1952

This first volume, covering the first two and a quarter years of the strip, will be of particular fascination to Peanuts aficionados worldwide: Although there have been literally hundreds of Peanuts books published, many of the strips from the series’ first two or three years have never been collected before―in large part because they showed a young Schulz working out the kinks in his new strip and include some characterizations and designs that are quite different from the cast we’re all familiar with. (Among other things, three major cast members―Schroeder, Lucy, and Linus―initially show up as infants and only “grow” into their final “mature” selves as the months go by. Even Snoopy debuts as a puppy!) Thus The Complete Peanuts offers a unique chance to see a master of the art form refine his skills and solidify his universe, day by day, week by week, month by month.

Maya Angelou Quote On Living With An Untold Story.

There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou

Bio- Maya Angelou, was born known as Marguerite Ann Johnson on April 4, 1928 in St. Louis, Missouri. She was an American poet, memoir, actress and an important figure in the American Civil Rights Movement. In 2001 she was named one of the 30 most powerful women in America by Ladies Home Journal. Maya Angelou is known for her series of six autobiographies, starting with I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, (1969) which was nominated for a National Book Award and called her magnum opus. Her volume of poetry, Just Give Me a Cool Drink of Water ‘Fore I Die (1971) was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize.

Here is a book as joyous and painful, as mysterious and memorable, as childhood itself. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. Maya Angelou’s debut memoir is a modern American classic beloved worldwide.

Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age—and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns that love for herself, the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (“I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare”) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned.

Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read.

If You Feed The Beast The Beast Will Destroy You

This is the truth of anything I have ever heard or watched. Sad thing is what we going to do about it? 

This video is sad to watch because the truth hurts. It’s also very scary to think we have let ourselves get to this point.

I’m actually in contact with a Dr. here is Missouri who’s trying to change this in our neighborhood with the kids and parents. I hope his program will work.

He has stated that this is affecting the mental health of many and I couldn’t agree more from just my own personal experience and from those I know or have known.

Mental Health problems have increased he says due to using cell phones and people not socially engaging in their family’s life and overall wellness. Suicide has increased, and depression has increased especially in the younger generation.  They think if they are not popular on social media then life is over for them. They are often bullied by strangers they don’t even know. As parents for us to let such happen, is just right down wrong.

How do we work on not letting cell phones control us?

Determination for change!  You have to want your life to be different. You have to want your family to be OK. You have to want for your children to not be socially bullied and its happening trust me, right under your nose whether they are telling you or not. You have to want for your family to socially engage with without holding their phones. You have to want your family back!!!!! Think about it, you can change this, there is away, you just need to follow it.  JUST PUT YOUR CELL PHONES DOWN!!! 

Mae West Quote On Life

aergfdafgeragf

“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.”  ― Mae West

Mae West bio-

Actress, playwright, screenwriter, and iconic sex symbol Mae West (1893-1980) created a scandal and a sensation on Broadway with her play Sex in 1926.

Convicted of obscenity, she was sentenced to ten days in prison. She went to jail a convict but emerged a star. Later, in Hollywood, she was the number one box-office attraction during the 1930s and saved Paramount Studios from bankruptcy.

Her films included some notorious one-liners which she wrote herself that have become part of Hollywood lore. But behind the clever quips was Mae’s deep desire, decades before the word “feminism” was in the news, to see women treated equally with men. She saw through the double standard of the time that permitted men to do things that women would be ruined for doing.

Her cause was sexual equality, and she was shrewd enough to know that it was perhaps the ultimate battleground. In She Always Knew How , Charlotte Chandler draws on a series of extensive interviews that she conducted with Mae West just months before the star’s death. Chandler also spoke with actors and directors who knew and worked with Mae, the man with whom she lived for the last twenty-seven years of her life, and her close assistant. Their insights enrich this fascinating book.

Frank Herbert Quote On Fear (Author of Dune)

Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life. (2)

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” by frank herbert
