(About Eternity, Humanity, Power)

He that lacks time to mourn, lacks time to mend. Eternity mourns that. 'T is an ill cure For life's worst ills, to have no time to feel them. Where sorrow 's held intrusive and turned out, There wisdom will not enter, nor true power, Nor aught that dignifies humanity.

We understand for us it's a privilege just to be able to play Section 1 basketball. Our kids realize this, and we let them know from the beginning of the season. They know they can't go out there and cause trouble. For our kids I'm just speaking for us they know if there are any incidents, there's going to be more consequences to face. And we haven't had a problem since we started this thing.
Henry Taylor

No siren did ever so charm the ear of the listener as the listening ear has charmed the soul of the siren.
