It was a bit of a morose Monday - everyone was grouchy at work for no apparent reason. (then again, it was Monday - that is reason enough).
I'm lacking inspiration in the blog department. I decided to open my Quotationary book and look to some quotes on motive. That could jump start some writing this week.
Give me virtuous actions, and I will not quibble ....about the motives - Lord Chesterfield 1748
Never ascribe to an opponent motives meaner than your own - J.M. Barrie 1922
Love draws me one way, and glory the other - Cervantes 1615
here's a goodie
A man always has two reasons for the things he does - a good one and the real one - J.P. Morgan
And of course, Oscar Wilde is the finale
Had it been merely vanity that had made him do his one good deed? Or the desire for a new sensation?....Or that passion to act a part that sometimes makes us do things finer than we are ourselves? 1891
