Goat-feathers are the distractions, side lines and deflections that take a man's attention from his own business and keep him from getting ahead. They call me before I am out of bed, when I am in the bathtub, and after I go to bed.

The time to investigate interesting by-paths is when you are on a vacation, but the New York-Chicago Express gets there by staying on the track.
