Found: By Pliny the Elder

I couldn't sleep.

A post was on my mind, one that I really had trouble finding words to comment on. I remembered a quote that would have been perfect, but I couldn't find it anywhere.
Sometimes I have trouble finding the right words (and spelling them).

So awake in the wee hours of the morning I again search and behold there they are....from Pliny the Elder;

True Glory Consists in Doing What Deserves to Be Written;
In Writing What Deserves to Be Read.

Simple, yet powerful words.

I don't ever remember reading him, but I must have and for some reason that quote stuck with me for years in the deep recesses of my mind.

I'm glad I found it.

I left a comment where it was deserved.

I'm thinking of putting it under my blog title now.

To give me something to shoot for.

Amen, brother. Amen.

Along these lines, an old friend of mine named craptoast once said "The only story worth telling is a love story." That's stuck with me, too.
