“Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control. These three alone lead to sovereign power.”
– Alfred Tennyson
About Alfred Tennyson
Alfred Tennyson, one of the most admired English poets of his time, was best known for his romantic poem, “The Lady of Shalott,” and for “In Memoriam A.H.H.,” a requiem for a close friend. He was born in Lincolnshire in 1809. When he was 17, he joined forces with two of his brothers to publish a book of poetry. His first solo work followed three years later. He became the first English writer raised to the peerage when Queen Victoria, an ardent admirer, made him a baron. He died in 1892.

Fire starter & a quote

In cleaning up my work shop I decided to finish a few things that have been lying around for awhile.
Apparently I forgot to put my apron on. Shame on me! I have asked my helpful assistant to turn the power off if I try that again as I don’t want to ever go back to the ER for a burn! 20151220_114459

“One day in retrospect the years of struggle will strike you as the most beautiful.”
– Sigmund Freud
About Sigmund Freud
Sigmund Freud, the Austrian psychiatrist famous as the father of psychoanalysis, used the techniques of free association and dream analysis to develop what has been called the talking cure, or talk therapy. He was born in 1856 in Moravia. Many concepts he developed have become part of the culture: the Oedipus complex, defense mechanisms, and the unconscious mind. He fled the Nazi regime in Austria in 1938, settling in London, where he died of cancer just one year later.
