Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

Good thing it wasn't my other anniversary... I just realized, I passed my one year blogiversary and didn't even realize it. Not surprising, given that it fell during a rather lengthy lacuna during which I hadn't had much to say or time to say it in. So, do I have any words of wisdom to mark this august yet obviously forgettable milestone? Nah.
