Quote of the Day

Courage is the complement of fear. A man who is fearless cannot be courageous. (He is also a fool.)
-Lazarus Long, Time Enough For Love (Robert Heinlein)

This is great, and it's true. You never fight with a man who has nothing to lose, or associate too closely with him in combat. Take my word for it.

As silly as Norman Mailer has become, he once remarked that heroism consists of doing the thing you dread the most. For an agoraphobic, crossing the street is an act of heroism. He's right.

I miss Heinlein and Kipling and Hoffer.
