I am loving the Louise Penny mystery novels that my sister-in-law recommended. I'm on book number three now and the main character, the Quebecois Chief Inspector Armand Gamache, is this wise, literary, intuitive, challenging, elegant man who is all about what makes people tick--and of course, what makes people kill. These are murder mysteries after all.
He is quite quotable and here is today's take-away: "We should have tattooed on the hand we use to shoot or write, 'I might be wrong.'"
It's another way of saying "restraint of tongue and pen" (and gun).
