Day 71 - The Court Jester

"So they sent for a witch with a terrible twitch to ask how my future impressed her. She took one look at me... and cried, "He, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, he, *HE*! What else could he be but a jester?" A jester? A jester? A funny idea, a jester. No butcher, no baker, no candlestick maker, and me with the look of a fine undertaker impressed her as a jester? But where was I to learn any comical turn? It was not in a book on a shelf. No teacher to take me, to mold me and make me a merryman, fool or an elf.
But I'm proud to recall that in no time at all, with no other recourses but my own resources, with firm application and determination... I made a fool of myself!"

-Hubert Hawkins (Danny Kaye) in The Court Jester

Day 51 - A Not So Wonderful Woman

“A new journey to be started.
A new promise to be fulfilled.
A new page to be written.

Go forth unto this waiting world with pen in hand, all y

Be original.
And above all else, be young.
For youth is your greatest weapon, your greatest tool.

Use it wisely.”
