Rain is grace;
rain is the sky condescending to the earth;
without rain, there would be no life.
– John Updike
“If only, if only,” the woodpecker sighs,
“The bark on the tree was as soft as the skies.”
While the wolf waits below, hungry and lonely,
Crying to the moo-oo-oon,
“If only, If only.”
― Louis Sachar
“I believe cats to be spirits come to earth.
A cat, I am sure, could walk on a cloud
without coming through.”
― Jules Verne
