The Editors’ Quote Of The Day

“There is a tide in the affairs of men. Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune; Omitted, all the voyage of their life Is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat, And we must take the current when it serves, Or lose our ventures.” – William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar


  1. One of my favorite parts of your blog was the economic-related articles which now seem to be reduced or omitted. I would like to see them again.

    1. They are still there. “Economics & Investing” is now published under the name “Economics & Investing for Preppers” on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in an expanded format. You just need to click on the article title to read the full article.

  2. I guess I’m old school. I have a Riverside Shakespeare on the shelf gathering dust. Forced to purchase it in college many years ago. Then, yesterday, I FINALLY had reason to break it out. My oldest is reading Romeo and Juliet at school. YES! I was vindicated in humping that giant book around the country all these years.

    Then it occurred to me. I stopped looking at it as an old book I refused to throw away, and saw it as the cornerstone of my reading preps. Well, not really the cornerstone. Another good book holds that position, but maybe book #2.

  3. I first saw that quote in Harry Browne’s “How I found freedom in an unfree world” back in the mid-70s and it was inspirational. Later, I re-read Julius Caesar and was reminded of what happened to Brutus just after he spoke those words.
