Happy Birthday, Bobby Lee

The forbearing use of power does not only form a touchstone, but the manner in which an individual enjoys certain advantages over others is a test of a true gentleman.

The power which the strong have over the weak, the employer over the employed, the educated over the unlettered, the experienced over the confiding, even the clever over the silly–the forbearing or inoffensive use of all this power or authority, or a total abstinence from it when the case admits it, will show the gentleman in a plain light

The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He cannot only forgive, he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and mildness of character which impart sufficient strength to let the past be but the past. A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot help humbling others.


Welcome Back

Wordpress

After months of inactivity and the relentless torrent of monthly bills for hosting and domain name ownership, I have made the move back to WordPress. My hope is that I can continue to write on subjects that you and I enjoy without the expense. We’ll see.

I am going to play with the site a bit, so if you notice changes, or want to offer suggestions, just email me.

As always, thanks for reading…..
