Only two quotes by Shel Silverstein

Sheldon Allan Silverstein (September 25, 1930 – May 10, 1999) was an American writer, poet, cartoonist, singer-songwriter, musician, and playwright. Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, Silverstein briefly attended university before being drafted into the United States Army. During his rise to prominence in the 1950s, his illustrations were published in various newspapers and magazines. He also wrote a satirical, adult-oriented alphabet book, Uncle Shelby’s ABZ Book.
As a children’s author, some of his most acclaimed works include The Giving Tree, Where the Sidewalk Ends, and A Light in the Attic.
As a songwriter, Silverstein wrote the 1969 Johnny Cash track A Boy Named Sue, which peaked at number 2 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. His songs have been recorded and popularized by a wide range of other acts including Tompall Glaser, The Irish Rovers and Dr. Hook & the Medicine Show. He was the recipient of two Grammy Awards as well as nominations at the Golden Globe Awards and Academy Awards. Silverstein died at home in Key West, Florida, of a heart attack on May 10, 1999, at age 68.
 There is a place where the sidewalk ends. 
 This bridge will take you halfway there - the last few steps you will have to take yourself.
