Wisdom of the Ages 303

“We grow too soon old and too late smart.”(You have to say it in a Pennsylvania Dutch (German) accent).

“God willin’ and the Crick don’t rise” — sort of like “inshallah” — an insurance policy made just behind promises.

“Do the work which is before you and the rest will come to hand” — a vague paraphrase from Thomas Carlyle’s Sartor Resartus.

from June of Southeast Main
