Quote of the Day

If you want to build a ship, don’t drum up the people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.

~ Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The Last 6 Years of My Life have been a MAJOR Challenge

When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back.

~ Paulo Coelho

  The Devil and Miss Prym

I haven’t read this book, but it sounds interesting —

A struggle between good and evil unfolds in this full-bodied fable by the author of The Zahir. When a stranger arrives in an isolated mountain village, he brings with him a devilish offer: If anybody in the town is murdered within a week, every surviving resident will receive a fortune in gold. His evil instigation throws the townspeople into a moral tailspin that ends with a major plot surprise. 

Ha!

People who do not know how to laugh are always pompous and self-conceited.

~ William M. Thackeray
