“If people bring so much courage to this world the world has to kill them to break them, so of course it kills them. The world breaks every one and afterward many are strong at the broken places. But those that will not break it kills. It kills the very good and the very gentle and the very brave impartially. If you are none of these you can be sure it will kill you too but there will be no special hurry.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Farewell to Arms

Crosses between the traditional European varieties and the wild American varieties resulted in new cultivars with increased resin content, aroma and bitterness. An example of this type is “Cluster,” a very popular variety resulting from an accidental cross of wild American and European hops. Wild hop seeds collected in Canada in 1916 led to the development of the famous variety “Brewer's Gold.” Many of the most popular modern American varieties, such as “Galena,” “Nugget” and “Centennial,” are descended from "Brewer's Gold."

Whatever it is you pursue, try to do it just well enough to remain in the middle third of the field. Keep your thoughts and ideas to yourself and don’t ask questions. Remember, the squeaky wheel is the first one to be replaced. - George Carlin
