Being in charge isn’t about doing anything—it’s about making certain that other people do what they’re supposed to! Delegation, my friend. Without it, we would have to bake our own bread and dig our own latrines!

The Hero of Ages – Brandon Sanderson

“Half the evil in this world occurs while decent people stand by and do nothing wrong. It’s not enough to refrain from evil, Trell. People have to attempt to do right, even if they believe they cannot succeed.”

Mad Ship – Robin Hobb

“Tomorrow owes you the sum of your yesterdays. No more than that.” Amber looked out to sea again. “And no less. Sometimes folk wish tomorrow did not pay them off so completely.”

Mad Ship – Robin Hobb

I THINK PERHAPS YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND. PEOPLE’S WHOLE LIVES DO PASS IN FRONT OF THEIR EYES BEFORE THEY DIE. THE PROCESS IS CALLED “LIVING.”

The Last Continent — Terry Pratchett

Palindrome day

Today is 02/02/2020

It’s the only date in this century that reads identically in both directions regardless of whether you prefer to start your dates with the day or the month…

I’m not even judging.

I think people should feel free to write their dates as they wish, drink cappuccino whenever they want, and be allowed to use ounces to measure volume AND mass if that’s what they are into.

That such preferences don’t matter though, makes today just a bit more special.

In case you wonder, the last time this happened was 11/11/1111 and the next is 12/12/2121

Here’s an article with more details about this special day, and in case you can’t access it, a website that lists many palindrome dates.
