A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles. Washington Irving

prolific author of books, essays, stories (including Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow); perhaps the first true American writer

There is a Fountain of Youth: It is your mind, your talents,

the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of the people you love.

When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.

Sophia Loren

winner of two Oscars and multiple other awards;

Look within. Within is the fountain of good,

and it will ever bubble up, if thou wilt ever dig.

They grudgingly carry their thimbles to the Fountain of Life,

then mumble and grumble that they weren't given enough.

Benjamin Hoff
