"The extreme clarity of the desert light is equaled by the extreme individuation of desert life forms.
Love flowers best in openness and freedom."
-- Edward Abbey
“Sunshine all the time makes a desert.”
-- an Arab proverb
“I have never been in a natural place and felt that was a waste of time. I never have. And it's a relief. If I'm walking around a desert or whatever, every second is worthwhile.”
--Viggo Mortensen“In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: "Is it good, friend?"
"It is bitter-bitter," he answered;
"But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart."
-- Stephen Crane
“I need you like the desert needs the rain.”
-- Tonk Hero
“The phoenix hope, can wing her way through the desert skies, and still defying fortune's spite; revive from ashes and rise.”
-- Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
"Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared."
-- Tupac Shakur
"You can take a girl out of the city, but never the city out of a girl."
-- DYY

Tonk here did not say that first. I think it was "everything but the girl" said that. Oooo. Watch your rock licking.
