It is the moment when our resolution seems about to become irrevocable, when the fatal iron gates are about to close upon us, that tests our strength. Then, after hours of clear reasoning and firm conviction, we snatch at any sophistry that will nullify our long struggles and bring us the defeat that we love better than victory.
-- George Eliot, in The Mill On The Floss --
This [the above] happens to me every New Year when I fail to give up hamburger!
Have a great Thursday!
