On my mind this New Year's Day, the inimitable Samuel Clemens. I just finished reading the Autobiography of Mark Twain Volume 1 (p.355):
"In my early manhood, and in middle-life, I used to vex myself with reforms, every now and then. And I never had occasion to regret these divergencies, for whether the resulting deprivations were long or short, the rewarding pleasure which I got out of the vice when I returned to it, always paid me for all that it cost."
So much for resolutions! Make them, and break them, lovingly.
Thanks friends! Between shoveling snow and filling the woodbox and dealing with furnace repairs, I just finished reading the "Autobiography of Mark Twain Volume 2" and needless to say it is endlessly quotable. Book report soon. Happy 2014!Post a Comment
