Money may be the husk of many things, but not the kernel. It brings you food, but not appetite; medicine, but not health; acquaintances, but not friends; servants, but not faithfulness; days of joy, but not peace and happiness.
~Henrik Ibsen (1828 – 1906), 19th-century Norwegian playwright, theater director, and poet

Robin (to Zelda the Great): We’ve got you, bank bandit!
[She disappears using a mirror trick.]
Robin: Holy Hole in a Doughnut. What happened?
~Batman (1966), “Zelda the Great“

January 9: “Canis Major” by Robert Frost

Canis Major
by Robert Frost

The great Overdog
That heavenly beast
With a star in one eye
Gives a leap in the east.
He dances upright
All the way to the west
And never once drops
On his forefeet to rest.
I’m a poor underdog,
But to-night I will bark
With the great Overdog
That romps through the dark.
