As previously expounded on this blog, one of my philosophies of life is encompassed in Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s words “to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield”. Others include:

  • Scooby-DooWHAT WOULD SCOOBY DO? (legend on t-shirt given to me for a birthday)
  • Mind the gap (sound advice courtesy of Neil Gaiman’s “Neverwhere” – you’ll be even more cautious of the London Underground after reading this book)
  • If Stephen Fry doesn’t know about it is it worth knowing about?
  • Where there is no imagination there is no horror (wise words from “A Study in Scarlet”, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s first Sherlock Holmes tale)
  • Vengeance is a right, not a privilege to be earned
  • It’s not the years honey, it’s the mileage (Indiana Jones’ wise summation of life in “Raiders of the Lost Ark”)
