T.G.I.F.! Here’s your quote of the day…

  

Authority without wisdom is like a heavy axe without an edge, fitter to bruise than polish. 

Anne Bradstreet

July 10, 1666: On this day, a fire destroyed the home of English poet Anne Bradstreet. She used the disaster as inspiration for a poem, rather fittingly titled “Verses upon the Burning of Our House, July 10, 1666.”
