I am remiss for not adding Kipling.

OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat;
But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!

Somewhat on topic: anyone here ever get the short story advent calendar? 

 One of my friends bought it for me one Christmas. I was bad about reading one every day (holiday season prep though!), but it was very cool. The stories were by authors from all over and not Christmas related- in case you were wondering.

Not sure if they take applications to BE IN the collection, but it would be cool. There's an online story discussion, of course.

 It's pricey, btw. It's Canadian, but our dollar's a deal for Americans right now- so deal for you guys!

I like quirky stories and this definitely had them. My friend did not enjoy it as much- she does not enjoy the quirky story. (It's cheaper if you order multiple calendars.)

Anyway, here is a link in case you are interested. Not sure when the 2019 one will be out.
