Quote Of The Day — April 16, 2015

.
Often I hear people say they do not have time to read. That’s absolute nonsense. If one really wants to learn, one has to decide what is important. Spending an evening on the town? Attending a ball game? Or learning something that can be with you your life long.”

Louis L’Amour,  (22 March 1908 – 10 June 1988), “Education of a Wandering Man”

    Good point Grouchy. We always find time when we focus for something. The way hacking is going, can you Imagine what might actually get Done if people had to go back to “old school” communication skills like reading and writing on paper! 🙂

    G’Morning, Uriel. Folks would have to take time to THINK, before committing to pen and paper and a stamp, – Maybe not such a bad idea~! I know some authors do the rough draft of their works in longhand on paper, before the final draft on the computer (Typewriter, in the olden days~!)
    Good Point, Uriel. Thank You.

    I carry a “pocket book” in my right rear pocket all the time. Read when eating, read when waiting in doc office, etc. There is ALWAYS time to read.

    • Grouchy says:

      I hear you, VM,,, I’m the same way. If not a book, then a “Steno Pad”, to make notes, or to outline my thoughts. There are two things that are too valuable to waste: Time, and a mind. And both are sorely abused in this day and age~!
      Glad you stopped by~! And thank you for bringing that up.

        Hey Grouch – I always stop by. Sometimes don’t say anything, but always read. When my wife was still alive and we worked in the same office (she was a supervisor, me just a low-level grunt) we’d eat lunch together and both read our books. She called it “Being anti-social together”.

        Joke: What’s the difference between a book-aholic and an alcoholic?
        Answer: The alcoholic has more room at home, because he gets rid of the empties when he’s done.
