Inheritance is merely a hack…

Favorite quote of the day:

I Found Myself in a Dark Wood

Dante, Inferno, Canto I:

In the middle of our life journey I found myself in a dark wood. I had wandered from the straight path. It isn't easy to talk about it: it was such a thick, wild and rough forest that when I think of it my fear returns.... I can't offer any good explanation for how I entered it. I was so sleepy at that point that I strayed from the right path.
