The fairest thing in nature, a flower, still has its roots in earth and manure.
~ D.H. Lawrence (September 11, 1885 - March 02, 1930)
It's a much more jaded, cynical, kind of (take on the phrase). It was really shaped by what was the election last time. And the results of the election. But you know, in order to take the moral high ground, just the opinion in the song is, 'You have your opinion. I have mine. And don't get in my face about it. Have a nice day.' It's a very Jersey way of twisting the words.
~ Jon Bon Jovi (March 02, 1962 - )
