Quote(s) of the (Fri)day

And here we are back again. Was it but one week ago when we waited with anticipation outside the Reichstag for admission into the 10,000 seat Adidas stadium for Germany v. Argentina, and all England remained optimistic on the boys' chances? Two quotes today in honour of that truth:
"A traveler. I love his title.
A traveler is to be reverenced as such.
His profession is the best symbol of our life.
Going from -- toward; it is the history of every one of us."

- Henry David Thoreau

"A good traveler has the gift of surprise."

- W. Somerset Maugham
I love the title too, whether applied to those little 50 mL "bonus" attachments on the liquor bottles, or to myself in general. And what better gift is out there than surprise? Here's to a great Rum 'n Coke Friday - in a few hours I'll be sipping Harvey Wallbangers and basking in the Mush-a-Mush sunset. Ya gotta love it.
