These are my humours and my opinions; I offer them as what I believe, not what is to be believed.
I aim here only at revealing myself - who will perhaps be different tomorrow if I learn something new which changes me.
I have no authority to be believed, nor do I want it, feeling myself too ill-instructed to instruct others.
Michel de Montaigne (1533—1592)

Some bloke called Thomas Merton. Probably named after the Oxford College he attended as a lad. Wrote some books. That's about it.
St. Laurence or Lawrence, the patron saint of Repurposed Convents, was an administrator and all-round good chap who, sadly, got a bit too close to the barbeque.
St Cuthbert, or Cubby to his friends. Whether or not he was also chubby is not recorded, nor whether he was a hubby. If he had been married no doubt he would have had cubs.
I am told this chap wrote a book in a shack, but why he didn't sit at a desk like an ordinary person, I do not know. Whatever, he seems to have coined it in, as a result.
The infamous Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Oh, come on, what were his parents thinking? He must have been so bullied at school. But in the end they named a bridge after him I think. Died tragically from cigar burns to his lips.
