Water way to travel

“Iron rusts from disuse, water loses its purity with stagnation…even so does inaction sap the vigour of the mind” – Leonardo Da Vinci


A tiny tribute in honour of the late, great Robin Williams

“Goooooooood morning Vietnam! It’s 0600 hours. What does the “O” stand for? O my God, it’s early! Speaking of early, let’s hear it for that Marty Lee Drywitz. Silky smooth sounds, making me sound like Peggy Lee.”

“Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn’t we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? ‘Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we’d all be put out in K.P.”

Heading Home

“What Tarquinius Superbus said in the garden by means of the poppies, the son understood but the messenger did not” – Soren Kierkegaard. 

This one might need a little explaining: ‘When the son of Tarquinius Superbus had craftily gotten Gabii in his power, he sent a messenger to his father asking what he should do with the city. Tarquinius, not trusting the messenger, gave no reply but took him into the garden, where with his cane he cut off the flowers of the tallest poppies. The son understood from this that he should eliminate the leading men of the city.’ – H. Hong.

“It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied; better to be Socrates dissatisfied than a fool satisfied. And if the fool, or the pig, are a different opinion, it is because they only know their own side of the question.” – J.S. Mill
