Another precious little nugget picked up from my perusal of last week’s Times Literary Supplement. It chimes very well with my own mantra of ‘carpe diem’.
Apparently, this is a quote from a character called Porky Pine (described by Wikipedia as ‘a misanthrope and cynic’: that’ll do), who appeared in a US cartoon strip called Pogo. I’d never heard of it, but no doubt it will be familiar to my extensive Transatlantic readership – of a certain age.
