And apropos of GAS and the cost of travel, this one my partner is fond of quoting from her mother:

"Shrouds don't have pockets"

I'll see your one, and raise you two...

Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

“A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"such a long long time to be gone, and short time to be there..."
the Dead way of saying it


> Hamilton on my mother's side and Johnston on my father's

Yikes. In the past when you have featured one of my comments, you have added
"(no relation)" after my name. Perhaps we're closer than you think (but probably not). My maternal grandmother's maiden name was Hamilton.

Do not do today what you can put off until tomorrow; one morning you'll wake up dead and you'll be ahead of the game.

Did you bring color film with you?

I never saw a gravestone that said: "I wish I spent more time at work."

"Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it!”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I love that quote but isn't there some doubt as to who really said it?

I also love this quote from Calvin Coolidge:

"Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'Press On' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race"

Admittedly, it's not exactly pithy....

Wow! Mike, you can write about any dang thing, and it is at least sixteen gauge.

And my own for good measure:

"The only things worth having can only be given away. They cannot be bought or sold, or held—just given. In the giving do all the riches of living come to you, in holding all the pain. Seize the day to do, and watch the universe dance anew each moment as you let it go."
- from my journal, written long, long ago
