Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn’t have to do it himself.”   —   A. H. Weiler

(That’s why generals are usually off on a hill somewhere, far from the battle.  They know the costs involved, but can’t afford to be part of the equation.  It’s a numbers game, and the troops are little more than numbers to them.  Most will mourn the losses, in some way, but they have to look at things a little more abstractly, in order to be effective leaders.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Nothing is impossible for the man who doesn’t have to do it himself.”   —   A. H. Weiler

(A very amusing and truthful quote!  This appears to be the first A. H. Weiler quote, since I’ve been posting these spoilers.  He – Abe – was a writer, editor and film critic, at the New York Times, for over 50 years, but there is next to nothing on him as far as a biography goes.  Even his NY Times obit was fairly brief.  Kind of strange.  He lived to the ripe old age of 93, and had been retired for about 23 years, so maybe he just outlived most of the people who could have written about him.  Still . . . a little sad.  One nice thing is that he was friends with the writer Richard Condon, and knowing that Abe had once wanted to be a doctor, Mr. Condon often used a character named Dr. Weiler in many of his stories.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
