- A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Revolt in the Desert
I'm reading T. E. Lawrence's account of his WWI campaign in the Middle East. Not only was that guy among the toughest men I ever heard of he was a damn good (even great) writer. In the midst of all those battles and other trials he must have kept a ton of notes.
Also cool when he mentions places I have been.
