I love those quotes. Have to agree the last one is the best. Too funny.

Great quotes. I did love the last one. Good stuff. I also liked the Jennifer Love Hewitt one, and the R. S. Surtess one. Both remind me of my wife and I love it! Thanks for sharing Dana.

These are great, Dana!

I'm particularly enamoured of the Emily Dickinson quote, which I'd never heard before. Nature never knocks, but never intrudes... that's awesome!

The Surtess quote I'd heard before, but still love it. There's something about that natural dirty look that just... I dunno.

Remember, in the African svelt the lioness does the majority of the hunting. The male lets her, because of how much he enjoys seeing her afterward.
