I am going to give you some quotes about Texas by some famous people that you may have heard of. I will start off with one of our governors, Ann Richards. Ann was the 45th governor of this state, and although this quote is not about Texas, it was in defense of women in politics; she said: "After all, Ginger Rogers did everything that Fred Astaire did. She just did it backwards and in high heels."
Being a Texan is more of a state of mind than just living in the state of Texas. Of course, there are always a few who do not like this state, and of course, then they should not live or visit here. Back in the civil-war era, Philip Henry Sheridan said, "If I owned Texas and Hell, I would rent out Texas and live in Hell".
I think the best quote and the one that I think fits the best is this one by Mary Lasswell: "I am forced to conclude that God made Texas on his day off, for pure entertainment, just to prove that all that diversity could be crammed into one section of earth by a really top hand." Now, I am sure all you Texans or want to be Texans out there will have a great day. All you others, just do the best you can. . .
