25APR2018 – Quote of the Day

Yeah, more Paul Simon.  What?  So sue me!


I am just a poor boy though my story’s seldom told

I have squandered my resistance for a pocketful of mumbles,

Such are promises, all lies and jest,

Still a man hears what he wants to hear

And disregards the rest, hmmm

In the clearing stands a boxer, and a fighter by his trade

And he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down or cut him

‘Til he cried out in his anger and his shame

I am leaving, I am leaving, but the fighter still remains.


The Boxer by Paul Simon

      You know Tom finding something that’s interesting to quote is getting more difficult but sparking a memory is enjoyable. Those old songs from our youth are often tangled up with some vivid memory. Makes it fun instead of a chore for me.
