Quote of the Moment (19-OCT-2020 20:01:04.73)

 Few young men of high gifts and fine tastes look forward to entering public
 life, for the probability of disappointments and vexations of a life in
 Congress so far outweigh its attractions that nothing but exceptional ambition
 or a strong sense of public duty suffices to draw such men into it.  Law,
 education, literature, the higher walks of commerce, finance, or railway work
 offer a better prospect of enjoyment or distinction.
                                        -- Lord James Bryce
