Whose birthday am I celebrating today?

July 7, 2012

Robert Anson Henlein – born July 7, 1907.

A highly quotable and prolific author.   This is one of my favorite Heinlein quotes:

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.

Read his biography here.

My favorite book- The cat who walks through walls

Happy Birthday to Sarah, too!
