Life. quoted.

No one ever won a war by dying for their country- G.S. Patton II

General George Smith Patton Jr., known as “America’s Fightingest General” was best known for his command of the Seventh United States Army and also the Third United States Army during WWII. This famous quote (slightly modified) came from one of his infamous speeches to the Third United States Army:

No bastard ever won a war by dying for his country. You won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country. (May 31st, 1944)

The second line I have for you today is not really a quote but more of an existentialist rhetorical question:

Who are you today?

Is it ironic how slightly reshuffling the order of the letters in “who” gives us one of the most common questions we will ever be asked? How do we even begin to answer this question? Who are you today? Who am I?

This opens a fascinating vista of possibilities…

A chance encounter

I thought it would be a lost cause, but I just managed to get a shot of this lovely PASOE piece as the truck turned at the intersection…

Roaming pt.I

Commercial truck surfaces have some of the best graffiti around. If your truck has a mostly white background, you know you’ll be a sure target wherever you happen to park at night!

Through the car window. Image quality isn't that great but I like how half the image is significantly more blurred than the other because the car happened to move at that time.
