New Quotation Source

Thursday, June 12, 2008
Well, I have reached the end of The Notebooks of Lazarus Long by Robert A. Heinlein, so tomorrow, I will be using new source material for the changing quote at the top of my page.

For those of you on RSS feeds, this won't affect you, but for those who actually stop by to visit, the new quotes will be taken from The Devil's Dictionary, by Ambrose Bierce.

This book was a long-time favorite of my late father, which goes a long way in explaining my own penchant for sarcasm and satire.

It will take me much longer to get through this book, but we'll begin at the beginning, with the letter "A."

"ABASEMENT, n. A decent and customary mental attitude in the presence of wealth of power. Peculiarly appropriate in an employee when addressing an employer."

Enjoy.
