A dentist with a brain tumor loses the “scientific” part of her brain only to discover the “artistic” side of her brain.
The Four Ages of Man
He with body waged a fight,
But body won; it walks upright.
Then he struggles with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.
Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.
Now his wars on God begin’
At stroke of midnight God shall win.
William Butler Yeats
The four ages of man
From thirty feet away, she looked like a lot of class. From ten feet away, she looked like something made up to be seen from thirty feet away.
Mark Schweizer, The Baritone Wore Chifon (The Liturgical Mysteries series)
Nothing is so aggravating as calmness.
Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, steer 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, and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.
