Wisdom from Sally Brown

I was looking for a quote from the “Peanuts” character Sally Brown. These are from her reports written for school:

  • When writing about Church History, we have to go back to the very beginning. Our Pastor was born in 1930.
  • This is my report on Rain. Rain is water which does not come out of faucets. Without rain, we would not get wet walking to school and catch a cold and have to stay home, which is not a bad idea. Rain was the inspiration for that immortal poem, “Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day.” After a storm, the rain goes down the drain which is where I sometimes feel my education is also going.
  • English Theme: “If I Had A Pony.” If I had a pony, I’d saddle up and ride so far from this school it would make your head swim!
  • Some people are right-handed. Some people are left-handed. There are other people who are able to use both hands with equal ease. Such people are called Handbidextrous.
  • This is my report on the importance of knowing how to read. If you can’t read and you get a love letter, you won’t know what it says. That would be very sad. Although in the long run, it also could save you a lot of trouble.
  • Light travels at a speed of 186,000 miles per second. … So why are the afternoons so long?
  • One “Rod” equals nine feet. One “Span” equals nine inches. One “Pace” equals three feet. One “Handbreadth” equals three inches. And one “School Day” equals a hundred years! … Sorry, ma’am, I couldn’t help slipping that in there.
  • There are seven continents: Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, South America, and Aunt Arctica.
  • The largest dinosaur that ever lived was the Bronchitis. However, it soon became extinct. It coughed a lot.
