” We’re anything brighter than even the sun

(we’re everything greater
than books
might mean)

we’re ever anything more than believe

(with a spin
leap
alive we’re alive)

we’re wonderful one times one”

“And remember, also,”

added the Princess of Sweet Rhyme,

“that many places you would like to see are just off the map

and many things you want to know are just out of sight or a little beyond your reach.

 

But someday you’ll reach them all,

for what you learn today,

for no reason at all,

will help you discover all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow.”

“She had always been beautiful in his eyes, and admirable, too.

 

He had worshipped her,

in some ways,

for her courage in adversity,

for her resistance to the ways of his own world.

 

But that had been bravery under siege and now,

it seemed, she single-handedly gave siege to the same society which,

a few months before,

had threatened to engulf and destroy her identity.

 

There was a determination in her bearing,

a lightness,

an air of confidence,

that proclaimed to everyone what he had always sensed in her

– and he was proud that his world should see her as the woman he knew,

in full command of herself and her situation.”

“For your information, I’m staying like this, and everyone else can just get used to it!

If people don’t like me the way I am, well TOUGH BEANS!

It’s a free country!

I don’t need anyone’s permission to be the way I want!

This is who I am – Take it or leave it!”

[ Bill WattersonCalvin and Hobbes ]
