On a day when we all have been battered and bruised, remember this one great
thing. Nothing is more fun than livin' .
                     Enjoy the weekend.    Provo

"One final paragraph of advice: Do not burn yourselves out.  Be as I am -- a
reluctant enthusiast...a part time crusader, a half hearted fanatic. Save the
other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure
and adventure.  It is not enough  to fight for the land; it is even more
important to enjoy it.  While you can.  While it's still here.  So get out
there and hunt, fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and
explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers
breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and
contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome
space.  Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly
attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much:
I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound
men with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by
desk calculators. I promise you this: You will out live the bastards."

Edward Abbey
