Quote of the Day

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.”

(John Stuart Mill)

Quote of the Day

“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

Quote of the Day

“Don’t let the chip on your shoulder grow to become a rod for your back” (Thelma McDowall)

Quote of the Day

“It is error only, and not truth, that shrinks from inquiry.”
