"As I grow older I am unpleasantly impressed by the fact that giving each
human being but one life is a bad scheme. He should have two at the lowest-
one for observing and studying the world, and the other for formulating
and settling down his conclusions about it. Forced, as he is by the present
irrirational arrangement, to undertake the second function before he has
made any substantial progress with the first, he limps along like an
athlete only half trained."
H.L. Mencken 1943

"Moderation in all things,... not too much life.
It often lasts too long."
H.L. Mencken-notebook
