Small Eric Quotations of the days:
If one day one reproaches you that your work is not a work of
professional, say you that:
Amateurs built the arch of Noah, and professionals the Titanic.

Few people are done for independence, it is the privilege of the powerful ones.

No key was wounded during the drafting of this message.
