SEVEN THINGS IN THE EVENT OF RAIN

Seven things necessary when the rain prevents us from pursuing our usual occupations:

A shelter, a purse, a stove, a cup of wine, preceded by a bit of meat, a tender maid, and a cloak.

---attributed to Ibn Sukkara Al-Hashi-mi by Edward Verrall Lucas in A Boswell of Baghdad, 1917


Study the past, if you would divine the future.
Confucius (551-497 BCE)
