"I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defense the only arms I allow myself to use -- silence, exile, and cunning." -- James Joyce
The man with power over snow and sleet

If I do wrap them, it will not snow that winter, and the state will not have to salt the highway.
