Quote of the day for Wednesday 

  

I love a sunburnt country, 

A land of sweeping plains, 

Of ragged mountain ranges, 

Of droughts and flooding rains. 

I love her far horizons, 

I love her jewel-sea, 

Her beauty and her terror – 

The wide brown land for me! 

Dorothea Mackellar

Australian poet Dorothea Mackellar (born July 1, 1885) wrote one of Australia’s best known poems, My Country, when she was just 19 while feeling homesick in England.

Quote of the Day for Thursday!

  
Arthur is a legend and a hero. The Arthur perceived through the legends is somewhat based on fact and he did, through many ways exist. He lives on immortally now, in our faith, hearts, minds, and writings. So, if his bones were discovered, and he will not return to rule as the legends states, he still remains alive through us.
