Quote of the Day 20090721

“When the archer misses the mark, he turns and looks for the fault within himself. Failure to hit the bull’s eye is never the fault of the target. To improve your aim – improve yourself.” ~ Gilbert Arland, Writer

I’m having to do an awful lot of looking at myself these days. To form an analogy from auto mechanics a lot more of my cylinders are missing than hitting. I’m pretty sad today, too.
