Dr. Lin Yutang
Nice work, AvgGuy.
Yes, it is from "The Importance of Living," by Lin Yutang. I read this a number of years back, and picked it up again this week. The passage I quoted struck me as something that could have been written this morning as easily as in 1937, when Lin Yutang wrote it.
You do realize that posting something like that without linking to the source is a little thing called "plagiarism," and people can get in some pretty deep shit for that...
Nice try, Rider.
I'm sure Gunny's got a new message by now.
Hammer + nailhead = this article.
no.it's not. he didn't say it was his writing. he said it was someone else's and asked if anyone recognized it.
where die he pass it off as his own work?
you are not on your game today, pale.
Oh... k... posting someone's else's writings without a link ISN'T plagiarism... you sure?
If Gunny did, it's not by me. You better do it, you thought of it.
