@msolga,
Quote:

Who lost out in the battle
Of old Waterloo?
I don't know, I don't know.
They say 'twas Na-po-le-on
May be it's true.
May be so, I don't know.
The pink sheets don't print
Mr. Bonaparte's face
No stories about him today,
'Cause he never could hold down
That old second base
Like his name sake,
Big Nap Lay'-oo-way.

Baseball, baseball
Ain't it a dandy old game?

The gen'ral of France
Couldn't lead 'em like Chance,
So no wonder his Waterloo came.
If down in his pocket
Napoleon had dug,
And paid his five francs
To see Tyrus Cobb slug,
He'd have said, I give up:
I'm a bug, I'm a bug!
Gee! it's a wonderful game!

Ring Lardner, Gee, It's a Wonderful Game

It is not enough to understand, or to see clearly. The future will be shaped in the arena of human activity, by those willing to commit their minds and their bodies to the task.

@farmerman,
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Sometimes I wonder if men and women really suit each other. Perhaps they should live next door and just visit now and then.

"How it is I know not; but there is no place like a bed for confidential disclosures between friends. Man and wife, they say, there open the very bottom of their souls to each other; and some old couples often lie and chat over old times till nearly morning. Thus, then, in our hearts' honeymoon, lay I and Queequeg—a cosy, loving pair."
- Moby Dick, Herman Melville

Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.
