You Can Quote Me

Know what I love? When people litter their blogs with random disconnected quotes. I am, of course, lying. But I recently came across a quote in my wordsmith.org email that I am compelled to share.

The belief in the possibility of a short decisive war appears to be one of the most ancient and dangerous of human illusions. -Robert Lynd, writer (1879-1949)
