Sharing quotes

Elections are coming. It’s a good time to share quotes about politics and politicians with new followers and guests.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

My old friend sent me a message with quotes of famous people.

Some of these quotes are well-known.

Here are the quotes:

If we got one-tenth of what was promised to us in these State of the Union speeches, there wouldn’t be any inducement to go to heaven.

~Will Rogers~

Politicians are the same all over. They promise to build a bridge even where there is no river.

~Nikita Khrushchev~

When I was a boy I was told that anybody could become President; I’m beginning to believe it.

   ~Clarence Darrow~

Politics is the gentle art of getting votes from the poor and campaign funds from the rich, by promising to protect each from the other.

~Oscar Ameringer~

A politician is a fellow who will lay down your life for his country.

~ Tex Guinan~

A beautiful country!

A beautiful girl whom I love very much (Renee B.) made three photos below.

Please describe what you see on each photo, what you feel and let us know what  country it is.

It is sunny and warm in Pocono Manor today and I spent this morning taking pictures. You will see them soon (it is not a threat).

Enjoy life! It’s a gift!

Art of Alan Cring.

I follow Alan Cring’s photography since October, 2013.

Today I asked his permission to display the photo below that he shared with the Google Photo Community. He kindly agreed and also gave me links I asked about.

 

The quote below explains the spirit of Alan’s photography:

 

“…I need not go far to find beauty, mystery, adventure, and wonder. When I am spending the hours finding these unexpected scenes to photograph, I am at once both at peace and in quiet excitement about what I’ll find and how I will photograph it. I will allow other photographers the cities, the monuments, and the trappings of the unquiet world that far too often lives only for itself as it consumes its people who are so fearful of silence, self-reliance, and occasional loneliness. As for me, I get to stand in the cathedral whose canopy is the sky, whose floor is the land, and whose trappings are nature in all its colors, aromas, and shapes.” Alan Cring
