Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

About Time


Finally reading some more Orwell recently, a book I put off for far too long.  Like my favorite,"Down and Out in Paris and London," it's a goody.

"Homage to Catalonia" is Orwell's memoir of fighting the fascists in the Spanish Civil War.  I should have read it years ago, just never got around to it for some reason--perhaps sloth.  Or perhaps I'd read too many books about war and suffered from second-hand battle fatigue.  Anyway...

Great read.
