The only means of strengthening ones intellect is to make up one’s mind about nothing – to let the mind be a thoroughfare for all thoughts. Not a select party.
(John Keats, 1795 – 1821)

Thursday’s Piece

I live in a constant endeavour to fence against the infirmities of ill health, and other evils of life, by mirth; being firmly persuaded that every time a man smiles —but much more so, when he laughs, that it adds something to this Fragment of Life.
(Laurence Sterne, 1713 – 1768)
