Bob visited us for dinner last night. As usual, we had a great conversation and good libations. He provided more than his usual number of insightful observations, and I just wanted to get a few of them down. These aren't necessarily the best ones, just the ones I remembered this morning.
"I'm not sensitive, but I'm trainable."
"We live in an age of splinter skills."
"You can't bullshit a boat. You have to do it right, or pay the price. You may be lucky for a while, but sooner or later you're going to learn about nature and yourself. Most people give up."
