A Quote by Emily Dickinson on birds, hospitality, and life

Our little kinsmen after rain In plenty may be seen, A pink and pulpy multitude The tepid ground upon; A needless life it seemed to me Until a little bird As to a hospitality Advanced and breakfasted.

Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)

A Quote by Captain Edward "Eddie" Vernon Rickenbacker on business, good, honor, hospitality, quality, and survival

If a thing is old, it is a sign that it was fit to live. Old families, old customs, old styles survive because they are fit to survive. The guarantee of continuity is quality. Submerge the good in a flood of the new, and good will come back to join the good which the new brings with it. Old-fashioned hospitality, old-fashioned politeness, old-fashioned honor in business had qualities of survival. These will come back.
