Happy Belated Birthday

by waynegjr

Apparently, August 1st was Herman Melville’s(who wrote our namesake story) Birthday!

We forgot, so, happy belated birthday M’ville!

Here are two fantastic quotes to honor the genius:

 

“Heaven have mercy on us all, Presbyterians and Pagans alike for we are all somehow dreadfully cracked about the head, and sadly need mending.”

— Moby Dick

 

“Of all the preposterous assumptions of humanity over humanity, nothing exceeds most of the criticisms made on the habits of the poor by the well- housed, well-fed, well warmed.”

— “Poor Man’s Pudding and Rich Man’s Crumbs”
