Yes, boys are a little like shoes. Why? Well..They can be useful. But mainly.. They are nice to look at. Getting the right one can be a lovely accessory to an outfit.

There are many types and often the ones that look the nicest are completely unpractical. Rachel Hill

He is familiar with the common mistakes, the counter-arguments; and insofar as this, he can clearly distinguish the difference between honest critics of the Faith and mere fools who criticize that which they know nothing. Criss Jami
