This is going to be one of many short and sweet posts. It is not always necessary to put out more words than most people wish to read. I have been doing a great deal of reading. From authors such as James Patterson, John Grisham, Stephen King, Tess Gerritson, Sue Grafton, and so many others. The following quote is from the introduction of The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri INFERNO.
for he who rests on down
or under covers cannot come to fame.
and he who spends his life without renown
leaves such a vestige of himself on earth
as smoke bequeaths to air or foam to water.
