I saw that first one but I don't remember Time Enough to Last.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones. Marcus Aurelius

The Gentleman is a teller at a bank, he lives to read books, but no one will let him and he never has the time. His wife is mean and his boss is mean, and all he dreams about is having the time to read.



There is more of course. Netflix appears to have the whole series


That episode makes me cry a little. Poor guy

A tyrant must put on the appearance of uncommon devotion to religion. Subjects are less apprehensive of illegal treatment from a ruler whom they consider god-fearing and pious. On the other hand, they do less easily move against him, believing that he has the gods on his side. Aristotle
Never discourage anyone...who continually makes progress, no matter how slow. Plato..

Excellently done, Cap. You didn't give away the story.


Some of my favorite episodes include The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street, I Shot An Arrow Into The Air, A Stop At Willoughby, and The Odyssey Of Flight 33.
