Every optimist moves along with progress and hastens it,
while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

ignorance and crime, and dries up
all the fountains of joy in the world.

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.

I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.

or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Make crime pay.
Become a lawyer.
