If you take a shower at night, then you may have sweated while you slept and you go through your day a little dirty. If you take a shower in the morning, then you sleep in your dirt from the whole day. If you take two showers a day then you lose a lot of time and your skin might dry out. There's no winning!

Random Burlingtonian Quote of the Day 📝
It appears that mankind in this life are not agents of trial for eternity, but that they will eternally remain agents of trial. To suppose that our eternal circumstances will be unalterably fixed in happiness or misery, in consequence of the agency or transactions of this temporary life, is inconsistent with the moral government of God, and the progressive and retrospective knowledge of the human mind. God has not put it into our power to plunge ourselves into eternal woe and perdition; human liberty is not so extensive, for the term of human life bears no proportion to eternity succeeding it; so that there could be no proportion between a momentary agency, (which is liberty of action,) or probation, and any supposed eternal consequences of happiness or misery resulting from it.
