We read deeply for varied reasons, most of them familiar: that we cannot know enough people profoundly enough; that we need to know ourselves better; that we require knowledge, not just of self and others, but of the way things are.
Harold Bloom (b. 11 July 1930) American literary critic and professor

Lou went to Wembley to watch England win, Showed up with an unlucky hair trim; Football didn’t come home, Went instead to Rome— Pity the sod who’s gotta console him.

Happy birthday Pudge! 
Tumblr media
This lazy cub is named for being pudgy, or slightly chubby, and he made his own name his catchphrase in all the games up through New Leaf! He has the play hobby and he can often be found enjoying life to the fullest! He’s skilled at blowing bubbles, and one day he plans to be a professional chef. He LOVES Blend coffee with just a pinch of milk and sugar, and his favorite song is KK Stroll! Wish him a golly good birthday!

FDR’s address at the dedication of the Triborough Bridge (pp 1-2), NY, 7/11/1936
File Unit: First Carbon Files, 1933 - 1945
Series: Speeches of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, 1933 - 1945
Collection: Papers as President, President's Personal File, 1933 - 1945
Transcription:
Address Of The President On The Occasion Of The Dedication Of The Triborough Bridge New York, N.Y.  July 11, 1936
 Governor Lehman, Mayor LaGuardia, Secretary Ickes, Commissioner Moses, ladies and gentlemen:
Many of you who are here today, old people like myself, can remember (that) when (you) we were boys and girls the greater part of what are now the Boroughs of the Bronx and Queens were cultivated (as) farm land. A little further back but not much more than (one) a hundred years ago, my own great-grandfather owned a farm in Harlem, right across there (indicating), close to the Manhattan approach (to) of this bridge. But I am quite sure, Bob Moses, that he never dreamed of the bridge.
In the older days there was no need for a (great) structure like this connecting Long Island and Manhattan and the mainland; and even if a vast population in those days had needed it, human ingenuity and engineering skill could not have built it.
Some of us who are charged with the responsibilities of government pause from time to time to ask ourselves whether human needs and human inventions are going to change as (greatly) rapidly in the generations to come as they have changed in the generation that has passed.
[page 2]
-2-
It is not alone that as time goes by we are confronted with new needs - needs created by hitherto undreamed of conditions - it is also because growth in human knowledge labels (now) things as needs (many) today, things which in the olden days we did not think of as needs.
For (instance) example. It was not so long ago that no one used to protest against the dumping of sewage and garbage into our rivers and harbors. No one used to protest that our schoolhouses were badly ventilated and badly lighted. No one used to protest because there were no playgrounds for children in crowded tenement areas. No one used to protest against firetraps (or) and factory smoke.
In those days government was not interested in helping to provide bathing beaches (and) swimming pools and recreational areas; nor had those who toiled in those days conceived the thought that they were entitled to at least one (day of) day's rest in seven (and) or entitled to an annual vacation.
There are a few among us, luckily a few, luckily only a few, who still, consciously or unconsciously, live in a state of constant protest against the daily processes of meeting modern needs. Most of us, I am glad to say, are willing to recognize change and to give it reasonable and constant help. (Applause)

A library is a good place to go when you feel unhappy, for there, in a book, you may find encouragement and comfort. A library is a good place to go when you feel bewildered or undecided, for there, in a book, you may have your question answered. Books are good company, in sad times and happy times, for books are people – people who have managed to stay alive by hiding between the covers of a book.
E.B. White (b. 11 July 1899)

Happy Birthday Filly! 
Tumblr media
This normal horse gets her name from the word for a young horse (filly) and she was added to Happy Home Designer and later New Leaf as part of a 7-11 collaboration! She loves the song KK Samba, and her ideal home is a 24 hour shop! She is heavily implied to be an occassional member of the hero gang with Kid Cat, Agent S, Big Top, and Rocket! Wish her a delightful birthday, hah!
