I love those quotes! :) Especially the fairy tale ones! :) Happily Ever After sticks more to my mind than any monotheist threat.

RO: Yes!!!! Tolstoy said it, before the more modern... "The only one/thing you can change, is yourself." Which is quite interesting.

How come, it hasn't yet, caught on?
