Quote of the Day!

Dublin, Ireland is celebrating the 100th birthday of Samuel Beckett, author of such nihilistic plays as Waiting for Godot and Endgame. The below is an excerpt from a Yahoo! news item:

[Samuel] Beckett has even been lauded by the Irish republic's answer to royalty - U2 lead singer Bono. "I'm a fan," Bono said at the festival's Dublin Castle launch, revealing that he'd once given Beckett a copy of U2's 1985 album, "The Unforgettable Fire." Bono said he often did not understand Beckett's work, "but I have enjoyed not knowing. He blew my mind, that is all I can say."

Ignorance is strength...

For what it's worth, I have enjoyed Beckett's plays, although I diagree with him on practically everything.
