But, first, remember, remember,...
Quote: C. S. Lewis But, first, remember, remember, remember the signs. Say them to yourself when you wake in the morning and when you lie down at night, and when you wake in the middle of the night. And whatever strange things may happen to you, let nothing turn your mind from following the signs. And secondly, I give you a warning. Here on the mountain I have spoken to you clearly: I will not often do so down in Narnia. Here on the mountain, the air is clear and your mind is clear; as you drop down into Narnia, the air will thicken. Take great care that it does not confuse your mind. And the signs which you have learned here will not look at all as you expect them to look, when you meet them there. That is why it is so important to know them by heart and pay no attention to appearances. Remember the signs and believe the signs. Nothing else matters. C. S. Lewis

Quote: Milton Berle Funny Now a 'funnyman' can get a laugh before opening his mouth - looking funny. Lou Costello was one of your great funnymen.

Now if you have both attributes, you are in good shape. Milton Berle Funny

Quote: Luke Harding Family When I first began visiting West Germany in the early 1980s, I was startled by the contrast between Birmingham, where I went to school, and affluent Cologne.
