"Better to sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunken Christian." Herman Melville who was born on this date(1819 – 1891). Melville was an American novelist, short story writer, essayist and poet. His first two books gained much attention, though they were not bestsellers, and his popularity declined precipitously after only a few years. By the time of his death he had been almost completely forgotten, but his longest novel, Moby-Dick — largely considered a failure during his lifetime, and most responsible for Melville's fall from favor with the reading public — was recognized in the 20th century as one of the chief literary masterpieces of both American and world literature.

Melville is another example of why we should never give up if we are staying close to our higher power. The results of our efforts may not be fully known in this life time.
