Quote of the day: A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession. by Albert Camus

Ashikaga Yoshinori

Ashikaga Yoshinori

Birthday of the day: Ashikaga Yoshinori; Ashikaga Yoshinori (Jp. 足利 義教) (July 12, 1394 – July 12, 1441) was the 6th shogun (rokudai shogun) of the Ashikaga shogunate who reigned from 1429 to 1441 during the Muromachi period of Japan. Yoshinori was the son of the third shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu.

Joke of the day: Two women were comparing notes on the difficulties of running a small business. ‘I started a new practice last year,’ the first one said. ‘I insist that each of my employees take at least a week off every three months.’ ‘Why in the world would you do that?’ the other asked. She responded, ‘It’s the best way I can learn which ones I can do without.’

Thought of the day: The real act of discovery consists not in finding new lands but seeing with new eyes.
