The Books We Read
The story I am about to tell you is true. It was told directly to me by one of the principals of the story. The names have been changed as a matter of courtesy and to protect the innocent. The quote to the left by Oscar Wilde is one that I wish I had been aware of before the beginning of this story.
Pondering the Principles of Proverbs
The quote on the left refers mainly to those who strike out on their own doing what others think might be ridiculous.
I believe it also applies to those who are willing to work at ANY job just to be able to "pay the bills."
There is something to be said for the one who is willing to work.
What a piece of work is a man,
How noble in Reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving
how express and admirable,
In action how like an Angel!
in apprehension how like a god, the beauty of the
world, the paragon of animals. and yet to me, what is
this quintessence of dust?
(Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, Act II, Scene 2)
