* Cynthiana Times, Dec. 7, 1865 - “We notice among other arrivals at their homes, our much esteemed and highly respected friends, Maj. Ben and Capt. Jo Desha. They are looking well and hearty. Their reception by their friends in old Harrison was that character which could not fail to make them proud of their county and state.”


* Cynthiana Democrat, May 12, 1910 - “Personal and Social - Mr. and Mrs. George Howk have returned from Tatham Springs; Jennie Withers Smith is guest of Mr. and Mrs. J. S. Withers; Mrs. Clarence Lair and Mrs. Charles Robinson were in Cincinnati, Monday; Chas. Bova and sons have returned from a visit to his sister in Pittsburg, Penn.; Mr. and Mrs. H. D. Frisbie have returned from several weeks visit to Mr. and Mrs. E. R. Oder in Lexington.”


* Denis Waitley - “All of the top achievers I know are lifelong learners looking for new skills, insights and ideas. If they’re not learning, they’re not growing not moving toward excellence.”


* Cynthiana Democrat, Sept. 29, 1921 - Advertisement - “Henry Ford, reducing the prices on your parts for the 5,000,000 Ford cars now in use, again demonstrates the facts that he is more interested in the good will of the millions of Ford owners than he is in mere profit measured in dollars and cents with the new Ford Touring Car selling at $355; Roadster, $325; Coupe $595; Sedan $660 and 1-ton truck $445, which are lower than Ford cars ever sold, and Genuine Ford parts at a new low rate. It would look as though Mr. Ford was about to make good his prophecy of 10 years ago that he would make the Ford car the cheapest passenger transportation in the world. Now that Ford has reduced his parts look out for the big Bargain Sales of ‘Imitation’ Ford Parts as the garages who are loaded with these ‘Bogus’ parts will undoubtedly try to get their money out of them before the majority of Ford owners are acquainted with the new catalogue price issued Sept. 1, 1921.”


* Joe Garagiola - “Baseball is drama with an endless run and an ever-changing cast.”


* The Cynthiana Kentuckian, Aug. 14, 1969 - “There is little chance for people to get together as long as most of us want to be in the front of the bus, the back of the church, and the middle of the road.”


* 1955 - “The Blackened Forest - Smolders Yet - Because - He Flipped - A Cigarette - Burma Shave
