Iconic Book Quotes

I came across this linked article about the 100 most iconic book quotes. I love books and it is interesting to see a list that people come up with. In addition, one can use such a list to find a quote that fits where needed. One such quote is a favorite of "A Tale of Two Cities" which to me seems to fit these turbulent times where so many people act like Jacobins with too many female Madame Defarges present. The list is here, the one quote is -

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” — Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

Dilbert and Daily Rituals

We all get in habits or rituals that happen every day. Whatever we do it must be done just a certain way. It must be comforting for us. It makes our world steady and safe. Like last night I had a hamburger from Carl's Jr for dinner. I like to eat around the edge first to eventually reach the juicier middle. Bob is used to how his mother and grandmother did things and will try to boss me in the kitchen to do the same. Doesn't go over well.

"I goofed around with the idea of creating physical triggers, but like most self-improvement techniques that require focused attention or (gawd forbid) homework, I never really followed through with it.
But I was recently reminded of a workaround for all of that self programming. I can just do what Dilbert does. Or the guy who created Dilbert anyway."
