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

Christian III of Denmark

Christian III of Denmark

Birthday of the day: Christian III of Denmark; Christian III (12 August 1503 – 1 January 1559), king of Denmark and Norway, was the eldest son of King Frederick I of Denmark, Duke of Schleswig and Holstein (1471–1533) and his queen consort Anna of Brandenburg (1487–1514).

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.
