Pontus Scratchpad

This is my scratchpad where I make random notes about things that interests me. As a result this site is mostly to collect random notes and thoughts.

There is no guarantee on quality of the content and it’s mostly there because I found that piece of information use full at some point.


This site should not use any cookies at all. If it is, I’ve messed up so please let me know :-).

Origin of subtitle

The subtitle of this site “The shortest answer is doing” is an old english proverb found, among other places, in The Works Of George Herbert Edited With A Commentary F. E. Hutchinson, Clarendon Press, 1945, Outlandish Proverbs Selected By Mr. G. H., 552; p. 340.

I’ve previously attributed this quote to Ernest Hemingway, however I’ve been told there is no evidence that he spoke or wrote those words.
