"A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject." --- Sir. Winston Churchill (1874-1965) Everyone has a right to a university degree in America, even if it's in Hamburger Technology. --- Clive James
A teacher asks his fifth-grade students to write an essay telling what they would do if they had 5 million dollars. Each of them begins scribbling away immediately -- all, that is, but one little boy who sits idle, looking out the window. When the teacher stroll around the room he sees only one short sentence on his sheet. "What is this?" the teacher asks. "Is this your essay?

One stone carver once told me, that the secret of the ancients is to hit the chisel with your hammer, not your hand.
