Quotable Quickie: A Very Un-Un-Happy Birthday!

“Once realise what the true object is in life – that it is not pleasure, not knowledge, not even fame itself, ‘that last infirmity of noble minds’ – but that it is the development of character, the rising to a higher, nobler, purer standard, the building-up of the perfect Man – and then, so long as we feel that this is going on, and will (we trust) go on for evermore, death has for us no terror; it is not a shadow, but a light; not an end, but a beginning!”

– Lewis Carroll (1832 – 1898)

Happy Birthday, Mr. Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll.
