Random quote of the day:

“The past is always a rebuke to the present…It’s a better rebuke because you can see what some of the costs were, what frail virtues were achieved in the past by frail men….The drama of the past that corrects us is the drama of our struggles to be human, or our struggles to define the values of our forebears in the face of their difficulties.

—Robert Penn Warren, Conversations with Robert Penn Warren, ed. Gloria L. Cronin, Ben Siegel
