ON DINING ALONE

Solitary dinners, I think, ought to be avoided as much as possible, because solitude tends to produce thought, and thought tends to the suspension of the digestive powers. When, however, dining alone is necessary, the mind should be disposed to cheerfulness by a previous interval of relaxation from whatever has seriously occupied the attention, and by directing it to some agreeable object.

---Thomas Walker, c.1835


There is no right to strike against the public safety of anybody, anywhere, any time.
Calvin Coolidge (1872-1933)
