A Quote by unknown on beginning

The pecan (Carya illinoensis) is native to the Americas and naturally distributed in the Mississippi Valley and the river valleys of Texas. The Indians introduced pecans to the white man by trading for tools and trinkets. In this way, the traders moved the pecan from its native range to the eastern states. The first pecan nursery was established in 1772 and from this small beginning, pecan production has grown into a multimillion dollar industry in Florida and South Georgia.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, contentment, death, despair, good, justice, optimism, soul, strength, and struggle

The Optimistic Frog Two frogs fell in a deep bowl, One was an optimistic soul, But the other took the gloomy view. "We shall drown," he cried without more adieu. So with a last despairing cry He flung up his legs and said good-bye. Quoth the other frog with a merry grin, "I can't get out, but I won't give in; I'll just swim around till my strength is spent, Then will I die the more content." Bravely he swam till it would seem His struggles began to churn the cream. On top of the butter at last he stopped, And out of the bowl he gaily hopped. What of the moral? 'Tis easily found: If you can't hop out, keep swimming around.

A Quote by unknown on beginning, character, gold, honesty, justice, play, time, and wealth

Man's measurement A man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man! This standard has his measure been since time itself began. He's measured not by tithes or cruet, high sounding though they be; Nor by the gold that's put aside; nor by his sanctity. He's measured not by social rank, when character's the test; Nor by his earthly pomp and show, displaying wealth possessed. He's measured by his justice, right, his fairness at his play, His squareness in all dealings made, his honest upright way. These are his measures, ever near to serve him when they can; For man's no bigger than the way he treats his fellow man!
