"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."

-- Robert A. Heinlein  (Click the silver button for more Heinlein quotes.)

Some thoughts from Mark Twain on "Perplexing Lessons"

Feeling perplexed and bothered? Spider Robinson writes about life, humor, sadness, and the potential to find joy. His work is often science fiction, which is a plus for me. Follow the link above to his web site, and the next one to a web version of his story, "Melancholy Elephants". It is a fine sample of his writing. (Do him a favor: buy a book. We can't do any more for the writers we love who are gone. We should encourage the one's we admire, who are still around, by buying their work.)
