  • There is nothing you can name
    That is anything like a dame.
    • Song There is nothing like a dame
  • You got to have a dream,
    If you don't have a dream,
    How you gonna have a dream come true?
    • Song Happy Talk
  • The way some people think is that you need something different in your life to make it special. But isnt it already special, every day holds something new. It might be as little as a sparkle in the pavement or it might be something as large as winning 172 million dollars. It could be as insignificant as a ladybug or as priceless as a golden sun,falling below the horizon. Whatever it is, embrace it and remember it because it might just be these little things that make life worthwhile.
    • Enola Reverof
