More school work, more business planning and repainting the house. I really would like to come up with something good to say, other than I need sleep. I don’t know what’s up from down anymore. Maybe because of the fumes from the paint. We are sleeping in the kitchen to avoid them. Sleep over party style.
It kind of feels good to be up this late working, because you know you got something done. The danger is that you lost your mind about two hours ago and will lose it again when the alarm goes off at 8am. Ugh.
So, anyway, as I’ve lost my mind, I’ll quote Emerson. He had some bright ideas…
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
A friend may well be reckoned the masterpiece of nature.
A good indignation brings out all one’s powers.
A great man is always willing to be little.
A great part of courage is the courage of having done the thing before.
A hero is no braver than an ordinary man, but he is brave five minutes longer.
A man in debt is so far a slave.
A man is a method, a progressive arrangement; a selecting principle, gathering his like to him; wherever he goes.
A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise shall give him no peace.
A man is the whole encyclopedia of facts.
A man is usually more careful of his money than he is of his principles.
A man is what he thinks about all day long.
A man’s growth is seen in the successive choirs of his friends.
Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.
