I dare say I am compelled, unconsciously compelled, now to write volume after volume, as in past years I was compelled to go to sea, voyage after voyage. Leaves must follow upon each other as leagues used to follow in the days gone by, on and on to the appointed end, which, being truth itself, is one—one for all men and for all occupations.

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924)

Pedro,

Your comment made me laugh out loud, as they often do. You have quite a wit. "You...you're good, you." (Rober De Niro in Analyze This.)

We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit

I truly envy people so compelled to produce art, or to produce anything at all.

Right I'll go and do a dump.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. Aristotle
