You can't run but you can hide from the MAD FIGS of Bullard High school.

Jeremiah 24:2 One basket had very good figs, even like the figs that are first ripe: and the other basket had very naughty figs, which could not be eaten, they were so bad.

Jeremiah 29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.

If you can fill the unforgiving minute with 60 seconds worth of distance run/ Yours is the earth and everything that's in it and what's more you'll be a man my son. -IF, Rudyard Kipling

The new man is born too old to tolerate the new world. The present conditions of life have not yet erased the traces of the past. We run too fast, but we still do not move enough... He looks but he does not contemplate, he sees but he does not think.He runs away from time, which is made of thought, and yet all he can feel is his own time, the present. -Eugenio Montale (1896-1981), Italian poet.

Why runners make lousy Communists. In a word, individuality. It's the one characteristic all runners, as different as they are, seem to share... Stick with it. Push yourself. Keep running. And you'll never lose that wonderful sense of individuality you now enjoy. Right, Comrade? - Advertisement for Running Shoes at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. Quoted in The Guardian (London, 29 Dec, 1984).

"I do not choose to run," says President Calvin Coolidge in an August 2 statement to the press that takes him out of contention for the 1928 presidential nomination.

Neither have they hearts to stay, Nor wit enough to run away. Samuel Butler (1612-1680), English Poet.

What breaks Capitalism, all that will ever break Capitalism, is capitalists. The faster they run the more strain on their heart. Raymond Williams (1921-1988), British Novelist, Critic.

His imagination resembled the wings of an ostrich. It enabled him to run, but not to soar. Thomas Babington Macaulay (1800-1859), English Historian.

We run heedlessly into the abyss after putting something in front of us to stop us seeing it. Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), French scientist, philosopher.

Behind the complicated details of the world stand the simplicities: God is good, the grown-up man or woman knows the answer to every question, there is such a thing as truth, and justice is a measured and faultless as a clock. Our heroes are simple: they are brave, they tell the truth, they are good swordsmen, and they are never in the long run really defeated. That is why no later books satisfy us like those which were read to us in childhood - for those promised a world of great simplicity of which we knew the rules, but the later books are complicated and contradictory with experience; they are formed out of our own disappointing memories. Graham Greene (1904-1991), British Novelist.
