"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Coping With Stress

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever,
even if your whole world seems upset.”
Francis de Sales (1567 – 1622)
