In honor of the end of summer, a random passage from Lin Yutang's work of genius: 'The Importance of Living':
"The three great American vices seem to be efficiency, punctuality and the desire for achievement and success. They are the things that make Americans so unhappy and nervous. They steal from them their inalienable right of loafing and cheat them of many a good, idle and beautiful afternoon."
