Monday's Quote

From the noted short story writer O. Henry (William Sidney Porter, 1862-1910) comes this pearl of wisdom:

"My advice to you, if you should ever be in 
a hold up, is to line up with the cowards and 
save your bravery for an occasion when it 
may be of some benefit to you."

Can't remember why Mr. Porter was in jail, but I do remember that was when he started writing. Perhaps he held someone up......Mom

Fixed the typo. I think he was in jail for some kind of embezzlement or con game.
