Mottos we don't understand
Voltaire's last sentence on Candide has been my unofficial theme last week. I think i gave away my book to Goodwill a long time ago so i visited Borders to reread it but it looked like they were out of stock because they were going bankrupt and someone may have snatched the book for $4.99 less and was on page 35 paragraph 2 and seemed to be enjoying it immensely, so i visited the local library and was witfully asked twice by the librarian: "How soon do you need it?". Anyway it goes like: "but we must go and work in the garden" while others have it as "cultivate" the garden. I think i like the second one better. And I also like this film.
