persto et praesto=to stand firm and to stand first

Well, you really got me on this one! I like it. I'll have to tuck this one away.

By the way, welcome to SplashHall. I've really enjoyed your haiku tags. We hope to see you around here often.

The only way of finding the limits of the possible is by going beyond them into the impossible. -- Arthur C. Clarke    :blusmoke
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamppost how it feels about dogs.

This isn't really a famous quote or anything like that...its just something a friend of mine said while discussing her relationship with her boyfriend.  I had to laugh when she said it but it really is so true when ya think about it.   I'm sure we all can relate to it tho.


Being a dickhead (or insert your own word there) doesn't make me love him more.

Strangely, for some women, that does actually make them love you more. The worse you treat 'em.  Ignore them, don't call...et cetera. I do my best to steer clear of those types. I find they not only come with issues, they tend to carry lifetime subscriptiions.  :blusmoke

LOL yeah it sounds like they would have issues if they love someone that would treat you that way.  ???     Doesn't sound like love if they have no time for you and ignore you all the time and treat you badly.   I guess love means different things to different people huh?  lol

Love, it is what it is, and sometimes what it's not...often what it's not is found more quickly than truth.  :blusmoke
