The mercenary soldier is not a valued creature, but at least he risks his life, whereas these men merely risk their next fee.”
― Patrick O'Brian, The Reverse of the Medal
That's going on my business cards.

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

The author of The Lord of the Rings was born on this day 1/3/1892.


Good words to ponder.

By working faithfully eight hours a day, you may eventually get to be a boss and work twelve hours a day,
Robert Frost
I was rereading The Secret of Annexe 3 by Colin Dexter and chapter 25 starts with this quote. It is apt with me since I am self employed and unfortunately very very true.

"But" is the most whore word I know. "I love you, but..."; "It could be, but..."; "It is not serious, but...". Do you realize? A shitty word that serves to bomb what it was, or what it could be, but it is not.
