Every lemon is its own worst enemy.
Lemons teach success.
Don't put all of your lemons in one basket.
Lemons will move mountains.
It takes two lemons to tango.
Lemons are the best medicine.
Follow the word
Follow the hope

Sonnet 130

My lemon’s eyes are nothing like the sun;
Apples are more red than his lips' red;
If snow be white, why is his skin yellow;
If leaves be green, no leaf grows on his head.
I have seen cherries damask'd, red and white,
But no such cherries see I in his cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my lemon reeks.
I love to hear him shake, yet well I know
That harps have a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a mango go;
My lemon does not even touch the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my lemon as rare
As any fruit belied with false compare.

:lol: These are great- but after 3 pages of lemon quotations, I think we're running out of steam a bit- so I propose a new word:

'Knuffel' (dutch for 'hug', if anyone doesnt recognise it!)

:mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
