my new haircut

Quote reblogged from No country for old men with 30 notes

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Lazarus Long (as recorded by Robert A. Heinlein)… read this at 14 or so and have been pushing toward the stars ever since. (via gone2croatan)

Will never get sick of this quote. EVER.
