An assortment of salads, sandwiches, Irish inspired fare, and beverages are available for purchase (and to lubricate discussion). http://www.keeganshuntsville.com/ New faces are always welcome! A suggested topic from previous months: What does it mean to know yourself?

“There is no knowledge so hard to acquire as the knowledge of how to live this life well and naturally.” ― Michel de Montaigne

 

“What is it that makes all our quarrels end in death nowadays? Whereas our fathers knew degrees of vengeance we now begin at the end and straightway talk of nothing but killing. What causes that, if not cowardice?” ― Michel de Montaigne (1532-1592), The Complete Essays
