This WORDS FOR THE ROAD VII, the seventh in a row, is dedicated to "Opinions" and given the same subtitle as the others: 100 short reflections and puns.
All my words for the road, which now have reached 800, are expressions of my spontaneous opinions and thoughts when they were put on paper.
Some of them the reader will find obvious while others could have been shaped differently or not be included at all. But, in between there may be some one will take notice off and some that give an afterthought.
If so, my purpose for them is achieved.

The reflection "The sub-goal", written in 1995, which is copied from the book REFLECTIONS I is about golf but is, in my opinion, just as valid when it comes to writing. The expression: "It is not the goal that counts but the process" also applies here. It is reproduced from page 14.
As in the previous WORDS FOR THE ROAD, the table of contents is presented in alphabetical order in both English and Norwegian. In the book the English comes first, with the corresponding Norwegian next to it.

If you should get the feeling that you´ve heard some of them before, I can assure you it has never been my intention to plagiarize.

George Manus

George Manus was born in England 14.05.39. His mother was Ida Nikoline Lindebrække from Norway and his English father George Bernardes. His parents divorced and George grew up, after the Second World War, as the stepson of war hero Max Manus in Norway. He got the name Manus but was never adopted.

All his professional life he was engaged in the Max Manus companies and leader of same for about 40 years. Throughout his adult life, he has thought about EVERYTHING, making notes along the way, as a basis for the books he knew he would write upon retirement.
George Manus has fulfilled his dreams and as of today has written several books. In his authorship one can sense the cosmopolitan, which isn't random. He has experienced a lot, lived abroad and for the last fifteen years been firmly ensconced in the South of Spain.
