Excerpt

psack fashion, to his back; then from a small cabinet drew a flask, which he disposed in his hip-pocket. Another part of the same cabinet provided a first-aid outfit, 3 R 0114.

* Is success really, a word coined in hell?

Another story on the definition, goals and satisfaction with success.
