A Good Way To Be

"He was a good hard worker, and he would make a good husband.  He drank enough, but not too much; fought when it was required of him; and never boasted.  He sat quietly in a gathering and yet managed to be there and be recognized."

Steinbeck's character, Connie, from "The Grapes of Wrath"

Such an incredible book - so intense! Preferred Of Mice and Men... George is another amazing character.

A good quote from a classic novel.
Hmmm.... Rugged, why am I reminded of you? ;-)
