Do the best that you can until you know better.
Then, when you know better, do better.
~ Maya Angelou
Chaos ins't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them.
And some are given a chance to climb, they cling to the real or the gods or love.
Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.
A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of sheep.
Power always thinks it has a great soul.
"The data run counter to your anecdotes."
I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and not one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what's true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness.
When you’ve been constantly repeating the need for a “revolution” and it still hasn’t happened, you are probably not the one who will be leading it.
“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be:
An informed citizenry is at the heart of a dynamic democracy.”
A man is what he thinks about all day long.~ Emerson
The soul is dyed the color of it’s thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice, Day by day, what you choose, what you think and what you do is WHO you become. Your integrity is your destiny, it is the light that guides your way.~ Author unknown
