A Man's Task....
To be honest, to be kind, to earn a little, and to spend a little less, to make, upon the whole, a family happier for his presence, to renounce when that shall be necessary, and not to be embittered, to keep a few friends, but those without capitulation; above all, on the same condition, to keep friends with himself; here is a task for all a man has of fortitude and delicacy. ĞRobert Louis Stevenson
