10.5.10




A man cannot be comfortable without his own approval.

Don't go around saying the world owes you a living.
The world owes you nothing.
It was here first.

If at first you don't succeed, try again. After that, give up. No sense making a fool of yourself.

If there is an easier way, way bother?

-Mark Twain ( at different moments. )

Fodder for thought.
I do not necessarily agree with it all,
even though he does look real sharp in his robe. -J
