If God created us in his own image, we have more than reciprocated.― Voltaire
If it turns out that there is a God...the worst that you can say about him is that basically he's an underachiever. ― Woody AllenNever mind an an absentee father and landlord, indifferent to suffering, fairness or justice, unresponsive to any form of communication ... and I could go on and on.
Associate yourself with people of good quality, for it is better to be alone than in bad company.
- Booker T. Washington
Fanaticism consists of redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim.-- George Santayana
Oh, that terrible moment when you look around and the nation's elite political press is fitting you for a straitjacket, and all the scapegoats have been stolen. It took the Vietnam War to destroy Lyndon Johnson. It took Watergate to make Nixon this batty. The current president* has been driven off the rails by a couple of tough episodes of Morning Joe. And there still hasn't been an actual crisis confronting him that he didn't create for himself. I am not reassured by this.
Here's another one I just ran into yesterday that knocked my socks off:
PATRIOTISM, n. Combustible rubbish read to the torch of any one ambitious to illuminate his name. In Dr. Johnson's famous dictionary patriotism is defined as the last resort of a scoundrel. With all due respect to an enlightened but inferior lexicographer I beg to submit that it is the first.
Somehow, Bitch McConnell and his ilk come to mind.
Daniel - Tagore is amazing. Something he said has always stuck with me (though I regularly fail to heed it):
Before you speak it, you master the word; after you speak it, the word masters you.
Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf.
- Rabindranath Tagore
Bertold, your quote is positively prescient, if unintendedly so, and it rather mandates that we pull out one more well-worn old saw: Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it. -- George Santayana
God is always the equivalent of ‘I do not know.’-- Annie BesantFunny that we're the ones willing to say, "I don't know," where the believers insist that "goddidit."
