To always remember this:

"It is not necessary to have been a tiger from the first and by nature in order to display tigerish qualities. Social conditions exist by which lambs are converted into tigers."

Good to keep in mind. My resolutions are more complicated, and probably less quote worthy. Happy New Year.

Lee and I were just discussing tigers. Zookeepers call tiger attacks "closed casket funerals."

Thank you for that inspiring sentiment; for personal reasons I'll refrain from inflicting upon you, it was just the thing I needed to hear.

"If ye find that the bullock can toss you,
Or the heavy-browed sambhur can gore,
Ye need not stop work to inform us;
We knew it ten seasons before."

(The above quote from Kipling's "Law of the Jungle" is no doubt something *you* knew ten seasons before; it just struck me as apropos.)
