Thought for the Day
“The happy think a lifetime short,
but to the unhappy
one night can be an eternity.”
*Lucian of Samosata
A Syrian rhetorician, and satirist who wrote in the Greek language. He is noted for his witty and scoffing nature. Lucian was trained as a rhetorician, a vocation where one pleads in court, composing pleas for others, and teaching the art of pleading. Lucian’s practice was to travel about, giving amusing discourses and witty lectures improvised on the spot.
