Michael Scott Karpovich Quote


The master in the art of living draws no sharp distinction between his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his work and his play, his education and his recreation. He hardly knows which.

Why I Use What I Use

Review, Tech

Everyone has their favorites when it comes to things technical. Some swear by the Palm series of phones, others are fanatical about their iPhones (you know who you are).
