Quote of the day

One hour of life, crowded to the full with glorious action, and filled with noble risks, is worth whole years of those mean observances of paltry decorum, in which men steal through existence, like sluggish waters through a marsh, without either honor or observation. Sir Walter Scott who was born on this day in 1771.

    It’s an ancient theme – Achilles’ choice.
