Default My favorite quote about Texas

"Said I'm tired of staring at this ocean full of yankees, rather be in Texas on my own.........." Pat Green, Texas singer-songwriter guru (this one is SO appropriate about where I live right now, on the ocean on the East Coast)

and THIS ONE IS SO TRUE:

Every Texan that has dared to cross the state line in his or her lifetime has returned disappointed and confused. The fact of the matter is there is no other state worth living in, or even traveling to, than the great State of Texas. So why would a Texan ever leave the state?

When my wife and I finally retire to TX, this will be a regular quote folks'll hear from me.

"I wasn't born here, but I got here as soon as I could."

My favorite quote is from General Sherman: "If I owned both Texas and Hell, I'd live in Hell and rent out Texas".
