…We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep…
William Shakespeare, The Tempest
Rien ne va plus? The luck of the draw? Is that the way the cookie crumbles? Born with the proverbial gold spoon in the mouth? For whom the bell tolls? Cast your fate to the winds?
On such questions Chris Dillow over at stumbling and mumbling has a response. In yet another of his many sterling posts he addresses LUCK, who may or may not be a lady, and may well be a damsel in distress. Mention of Mincer equations is merely part of making a reference, without the need to state the equations.
And that leads us back to an earlier post of his on education and daring to be instantly rich and famous. The name, Simon Cowell, should attract interest in the post, GOVE VS COWELL: AN OLD DILEMMA. Should a youngster or other focus more on defying the odds and seek out fame and wealth, rather than on seeking a solid education, which also allows for ‘survival’ skills? The audacity of hope over experience? Quest for ‘The Maltese Falcon’?
