Quote of the day: A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession. by Albert Camus
Birthday of the day: Kujo Yoritsune; Kujō Yoritsune (九条 頼経) (February 12, 1218 – September 1, 1256) was the fourth shogun (r. 1226–1244) of the Kamakura shogunate of Japan. His father was kanpaku Kujō Michiie and his grandmother was a niece of Minamoto no Yoritomo. He was born in the year (according to Chinese astrology) of the tiger, in the month of the tiger, on the day of the tiger, and so his given name at birth was Mitora (三寅, ‘Triple Tiger’).
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.’
