Quote
"Better than certainty is to have the courage of ambivalence–except I'm not sure about it." - Josh Greenfeld

" Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. And by true, I mean false. They're all lies but they are entertaining lies. And in the end, isn't that the real truth? The answer... is No "
- Leonard Nimoy (The Simpsons)

"But what is liberty without wisdom, and without virtue? It is the greatest of all possible evils; for it is folly, vice, and madness, without tuition or restraint." - Edmund Burke

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders; no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way out for himself if society is sweeping toward destruction. Therefore, everyone, in his own interests, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle. None can stand aside with unconcern; the interest of everyone hangs on the result. Whether he chooses or not, every man is drawn into the great historical struggle, the decisive battle into which our epoch has plunged us." - Ludwig von Mises

"We sleep peaceably in our beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on our behalf." - George Orwell

"I love deadlines. I like the sound they make as they fly by." - Douglas Adams

"Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible -- the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family." - Virginia Satir

“Charity means pardoning what is unpardonable, or it is no virtue at all. Hope means hoping when things are hopeless, or it is no virtue at all. And faith means believing the incredible, or it is no virtue at all.” - G.K. Chesterton, “The Collected Works of G.K. Chesterton, p. 125

Personal and Political Advice from Rome.

His Holiness, Pope Francis, has a warning sign posted outside his office door.It begins "VIETATO LAMENTARSI"In English, "WHINERS PROHIBITED."The sign ends with “To get the best out of yourself, concentrate on your potential and not on your limitations.
