I have signed myself up to receive a daily aphorism. Each day you get a little wise phrase or quote. It's quite nice to read with a morning cup of something hot (I am a total hot drink whore and cannot find it in me to be loyal to one variety at all)
Today's aphorism was:
Laws are like sausages
It is better not to see them being made
Otto Von Bismarck (1815- 1898)
I'm not sure that Bismarck and I see I to eye on many things but I think we do on the sausages. On the laws I suppose it depends on what kind of law, some might be very good ones like the Geneva Convention.
Yesterday's was very good:
Love is a grave mental disease
Plato 429- 347 BC
Plato was wise indeed
The daily Aphorisms are brought to us by The School of Life which seems like an interesting place. I definitely want to drop in on their shop (I know I want to drop into every shop but I would make a special trip for this one as it looks like it has very interesting book recommendations). They also run courses, meals and holidays encouraging us to do the truly scary and talk to strangers. That is probably all a bit much for me but I suppose if alcohol was involved I might give it a crack.
