Fun fair

We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

Even though you’re growing up, you should never stop having fun.

Nina Dobrev

Have fun, even if it’s not the same kind of fun everyone else is having.

Why…

Why does the sea water taste like salt?
Because that’s where the tears from the clouds land

Why is the sun so hot?
To keep us warm when we are sad

Why does it rain over our heads?
To wash the bad feelings away

Why is the grass green?
To make us happy when days are grey

Why do the stars shine?
To show us the path

Why is the moon so big and bright?
To take care of Mother Earth

Why do numbers never end?
So we count them again and again

Why do some people fight?
They can no longer see the difference between wrong and right

Why is love so important?
Because without it, we would already be dead.

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.

Time is rushing me

I remember so well my childhood
Good old times!
Now my children are the ones that shrive me
I remember when life was made of endless Summer days
Although I’ve always preferred Autumn evenings
I remember playing with my brother and sisters
Monopoly would last all night long
It’s still the case
Certain things will never change
I remember when my skin was firm and my body flexible
My smile is not gone but my face is slightly wrinkled
And my brown hair is smoothly turning to gray
Here and there
I don’t mind aging
I wouldn’t change 43 for 22
Every birthday should be celebrated
Because we are alive
I just feel that time keeps rushing me
And there’s nothing I can do to slow it down.

The world is a fine place and worth fighting for and I hate very much to leave it.

People say graffiti is ugly, irresponsible and childish… but that’s only if it’s done properly.

Art is everywhere!

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.

Pablo Picasso

Creativity is intelligence having fun.
