Strawberry Quotes:

"We are bound by a small, sometimes magical fruit called the strawberry. This fruit has the power to make tears dry up, make friends with enemies, make sick people feel better, make the elderly feel younger by bringing back pleasant memories of days gone by, make acquaintances of strangers, and above all make little children smile. What other fruit has that power?" Marvin Brown

"Doubtless God could have made a better berry (than the strawberry), but doubtless God never did." William Allen Butler
