Something to Aspire To

I’ve always loved this passage, it’s the legendary Lazarus Long speaking:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects. (Robert A. Heinlein)

Happy Monday, everyone!

  1. I have to agree with Heinlein..i guess I do all right with everything except writing a sonnet. I remember trying that once, sometime in the distant past. Can’t remember the definition of a sonnet }:-)
