Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

all the fountains of joy in the world.

or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
