When I came to California, it was the mecca of the world. Every young person on the planet wanted to be here.

All other great men are valued for their lives; He, above all, for His death, around which mercy and truth, righteousness and peace, God and man are reconciled; for the cross is the magnet which sends the electric current through the telegraph between earth and heaven, and makes both Testaments thrill, through the ages of the past and future, with living, harmonious, and saving truth.edward thomson

Look at this vigorous plant that lifts its head from the meadow, See how its leaves are turned to the north, as true as the magnet; This is the compass-flower, that the finger of God has planted Here in the houseless wild, to direct the traveller's journey. Over the sea-like, pathless, limitless waste of the desert, Such in the soul of man is faith.Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
You are a mystery in an enigma in a big ball of fur,An irresistible magnet to every child and flea and burr.Your nose is high-resolution while I live in a near-scentless fogYou run at high speed, while I just have to slog (but it's a good ol' slog)So I just want to thank you for being my dog....richard summerbell
