Ellen Goodman ~ Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work, driving through traffic in a car that you are still paying for in order to get to a job that you need so you can pay for the clothes, car and the house that you leave empty all day in order to afford to live in it.    ~ From Te Awamutu Rotary   

David Hill ~ There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.
Julius Caesar Act 4, Scene 3, 218-224…   Rotary Ahuriri Sunrise.
