From Heart of Darkness:

Quote
He was obeyed, yet he inspired neither love nor fear, nor even respect. He inspired uneasiness. That was it! Uneasiness. Not a definite mistrust—just uneasiness—nothing more. You have no idea how effective such a... a... faculty can be. He had no genius for organizing, for initiative, or for order even. That was evident in such things as the deplorable state of the station. He had no learning, and no intelligence. His position had come to him—why? Perhaps because he was never ill.

Not terribly profound, but it describes my boss to a T so it's a winner in my book.

I see we have a well educated rat here! Not many beasts still read Conrad.

"Behold, many are called, but few are chosen. And why are they not chosen? Because... They do not learn this one lesson- that the rights of the priesthood are inseparably connected to the powers of heaven, and the powers of heaven cannot be controlled nor handled only upon the principles of righteousness." D&C 121:34-36

I regret to say that Heart of Darkness is the only Conrad story I've read. Do you have any recommendations?

"Did anyone else get the naked women asking about your childhood?" I asked.
"I got a man," Susan said.
"Woman," said Harry.
"Man," said Jesse.
"Women," said Thomas.
"Man," said Alan.
We all looked at him.
"What?" Alan said. "I'm gay."

"It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If you take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others, the other elements, the other nations, will help you become whole."

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou

"What e'er thou art, act well thy part."

"Humility is not thinking less of yourself; it's thinking of yourself less." -C.S. Lewis

"Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up." -C.S. Lewis
