Thursday’s Thought of the Day

“The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated.”

~ Katharine Hepburn

Overheard in the Library 43

During Grade 1 Library time:

Boy:  I’m going to be six in December!

Ms Walker: So you’re five now.

Boy: Yes. And when I’m eighteen I will be very tall.

Ms Walker: Oh really? Are your mom and dad very tall?

Boy: Well, my mom is about a mile taller than you, and my dad is about 10 miles taller than you.
