Wells Cathedral

This is a picture of Wells Cathedral. Not that I'm overly proud that it is named after my family, or that my family was from the area, or that I think it's the best five letter word invented by mankind; but I do find the setting appropriate to share some quotes of the day to send us weekend warrriors into battle. After all, today is the end of Hurricane Season, so we have to create our own!
To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.
-Confucius
Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.
-Emerson
Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.
-Proverbs 16:18
Learn to shut yourself away in My Presence - and then, without speaking, you have those things you desire of Me, Strength - Power - Joy - Riches.
--Two Listeners
If you think you can do a thing or that you cannot do a thing, in either case you are right.
~ Henry Ford
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
-Romans 12:21
We ourselves are not an illusory part of Reality; rather are we Reality itself illusorily conceived. - Fingers Pointing Toward the Moon by Wei Wu Wei

Blessings & Cheers,
Sir Hook

I did a quick web search for Kuhn Castle, but didn't find one. I did, however, find Kuhn Organs -- evidently one of the finest organ makers (for Cathedrals) in the world.

Here is a quote from their web site which has Knights of Moleskine, Spirit and Ale all over it:

Idealists with a common goal

We organ builders are, almost without exception, idealists and tend to live in a world of our own. Organ building entails lengthy and highly complex planning and production processes that go way beyond the norm. Nowadays, unique, handmade products involving immense amounts of work and time are mostly too expensive. We find that working in a profession where no other approach can even be considered is extremely satisfying.

Organ builders, pipe-makers, cabinet-makers and artists from many different disciplines muster all the expertise and creative talent at their disposal to achieve a single, common goal: to build, restore and maintain instruments at the highest possible level of perfection.

I like it!
