Illustration Friday: Brave

Bravery 
is only obtuseness to the perception of contingencies.
I wasn't sure where to take the week's IF word until I remembered this quote from a Thomas Hardy book. It's a rather pessimistic attitude (hey, it's Hardy--what did you expect?), but the quote always makes me laugh, and it seemed to fit the theme of this picture.

  2. You are the first person I have ever heard of who laughs when reading Thomas Hardy! (I'm smiling.) Nice piece and interesting quotation.

  3. Thank you all!
    Hardy's plots are usually more or less depressing, but his style of writing and many minor characters are full of quotable lines. :)
