Quote of the Day (Alexander Pope, on Old Friends)

“Content with little, I can piddle here 
On brocoli and mutton round the year; 
But ancient friends (tho’ poor, or out of play) 
That touch my bell, I cannot turn away.” —English poet Alexander Pope (1688–1744), Satires, Epistles, and Odes of Horace Imitated: The Second Satire of the Second Book of Horace
