Quote of the week No. 7 : Meaningless affairs

One degree at 9am. There's snow on the ground still. A day of variety : first it snows, then it rains and then it hails.


Eric Hoffer (1902-1983), American writer and philosopher, nicknamed the 'longshoreman philosopher'.

"A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business."

And people living in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
