 “Headless Body in Topless Bar”

Headline written by Vincent A. Musetto

Mr. Musetto died on Tuesday in the Bronx. He was 74.

The link below is an interesting article about him and his famous headline.

I have a few actually

“Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”  ~ Arthur Schopenhauer

"Men fear death as children fear to go in the dark" ~ Lovecraft

"Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look on them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death." ~ Sun Tzu - my aunt's father sacrificed himself [he was a bomber pilot] during WWII to ensure the plane (belly) landed in relatively one piece while on fire so that his crew could survive. That quote is very true and unfortunately in this day and age the concept widely overlooked in fighting.

“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”

“If I am mad, it is mercy! May the gods pity the man who in his callousness can remain sane to the hideous end!”

“I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams.”

All H. P. Lovecraft. He's deeply missed.  :'(

One quote that I have etched in my mind that keeps me going when the going gets tough is:

"To know the worth of the anchor, you must suffer the stress of the storm"

I stop all that negative self talk and get back to the business of working to achieve my goals.

My favorite inspirational quote is from The Crow:

"It can't rain all the time."

It might sound obvious. It can't rain all the time. Sooner or later, the rain will stop. But it can also mean a whole lot more than that. Have a bad day? Don't worry about it. Sooner or later, you'll go to sleep and wake up to a whole, new day and be happy again. It can't rain all the time. ;)
