There are some amusing quotes from former American president Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) – wasn’t he a character(!) – I selected this quite thought-provoking one:

I have wondered at times what the Ten Commandments would have looked like if Moses had run them through Congress.

British archaeologist, Mary Leakey, (1913-1996):

Theories come and go but fundamental data always remains the same.

Today’s final quote reminds me of how Stu describes his free-flow poetry method; from Canadian poet, (b.1918, d.2001) Louis Dudek :

In a poem, the words just happen; they just come. I let them. Otherwise I wouldn’t write. To interfere with what is happening is to distort the poem. Just a very small degree of intelligence and supervision is necessary.

Other birthdays today include Zsa Zsa Gabor (b.1917); Bob Marley (1945-1981); Axl Rose (b.1962) and Rick Astley (b.1966).
