Quote For The Day 6-25-2017

“Heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. A quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever; a happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

He calmed himself with effort. “So, what you are saying is this can’t be a crisis because you are TOO busy?”

“No, I am simply saying we can’t have a crisis. This may be a crisis but, because I am too busy today, you will simply have to schedule it in for another day.”

“Oh for God’s sake! Just when I thought there was no way for you to get any more conceited you come up with this shit.”

Thomas frowned.  “You know I don’t allow cursing in my office.”

Another long breath. Count to ten. Twenty. Forty. “Apparently you don’t allow much into your office. Certainly not anything practical.”

“Just get out and let me attend to my scheduled business.”

He stormed out, smile crossing his lips as soon as  the door closed behind him. Now for part two.
