Dooced appropriate

…for once I’d recognized his quotation — it had been framed on the wall of the hospital at Rugby, where I’d sobered up on that distant day when Arnold kicked me out . . . “Olim miminisse juvabit”,* and dooced appropriate, too, Seneca, if memory serves.

*It will be pleasant to remember former troubles — Virgil (not Seneca).

Flashman and the Angel of the Lord, p.63, Harper Collins, 1995.
