Things I've Learned from Books + 69

If your image is emblazoned on coins across the kingdom, the chances of you being able to hide in plain sight are pretty slim. Unless your world can do more to alter your image than give you a bad haircut, stay inside. Embrace solitude.

I've always wondered how closely these minted portraits resembled their models. They were probably more accurate than I imagine.

Did you hear the story of Sir Edmund Hilary, whose image was put on one of the New Zealand dollar bills while he was still alive? One day, when someone who didn't recognise him asked him for ID, he simply pulled the bill out of his wallet! Nice, aye? =D

But yeah, he could never really have been anonymous in New Zealand for the rest of his life. Point taken! =P
