Q: Why did the chicken cross the road?
A: To get away from Colonel Sanders!
"Love is tricky. ...It is never mundane or daily. You can never get used to it. You have to walk with it, then let it walk with you. You can never balk. It moves you like the tide. It takes you out to the sea then lays you on the beach again. Today's struggling pain is the foundation for a certain stride through the heavens. You can run from it, but you can never say no. It includes everyone." --Amy Tan, "The Hundred Secret Senses"
