I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God care about. But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.

~Alice Walker

Larry-Boy: Drop the asparagus!
Fib: Why don't you come and make me, little purple man?
Larry-Boy: If that's the way it's gotta be...

Who do they call when Bumblyburg's in trouble?
Who's got the suit with super-suction ears?
There's no need to panick, 'cause this guy's manic,
And you know that he'll save the day!
You need a hand, he's right there on the double
Hey, hey, he's on the way
Purple and yellow! He's one super fellow!

~Assorted quotes from Veggie Tales regarding the Purple and Yellow Avenger: Larry Boy

Come to the woods, for here is rest. There is no repose like that of the green, deep woods. Here grow the wallflower and the violet. The squirrel will come and sit upon your knee, the logcock will wake you in the morning.

~John Muir
