Thought for the Day

“The man who promises everything is sure to fulfill nothing, and everyone who promises too much is in danger of using evil means in order to carry out his promises, and is already on the road to perdition.”

Carl Jung

tsb, true of senior management everywhere I fear.

kerry, not harsh enough where politicians are concerned.

pl, the worst part of being a lawyer I thought, was the destruction that I brought to everyone I encountered in my day to day dealings.

It is a tough job hazard, Laoch. =(

pl, I guess it does not have to be but it is much harder to avoid if you are trying to make a decent sum of money. Someone wiser than I probably would just say that I was doing it wrong. I probably should have just gone and worked for someone like the Southern Poverty Law Center or the EFF.

Well said, Carl Jung.

I promise we'll have dinner.

Oh, you are dead.
