Enchiridion (en ki RID i on): Greek, a handbook.
Alfred the Great had a book he called his enchiridion in which he copied quotations, poems, and anything of note he came across. This blog is the same sort of thing, only I don't get to use real vellum and quill pens.

by G.K. Chesterton
Though pain be stark and bitter And days in darkness creep Not to that depth I sink me That asks the world to weep.

Those who know me know I don't put the sentiment of this poem into practice. It takes very little for me to complain. But Chesterton is the one with the right idea here, not me.
