  1. Sir robert Monahan of the shire

    this quote talks about respect towards your fields of interest. i believe that before you achieve this goal, you must learn how to be selfless and patient. one must find the importance of the little things in life… like the leaping antelope in a mid graceful bound over a cool stream in march or late feburary. or the calmness of an otter befor it cracks a clam over its tummy.
    in society we need to learn how to feel the earth around us and ignore the pitter patter of our childeren running through open medows. i beilve that we need to apereciate grapefruit as a whole and not individually. as yoda ounce said “do or do not, there is no try”
