Quote of the day.....
A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds,
adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.
He may as well concern himself
with his shadow on the wall.
Speak what you think now in hard words, and
to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks
in hard words again,
though it contradict everything you said to-day.
--'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.'
-- Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood?
Pythagoras was misunderstood,
and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther,
and Copernicus, and Galileo, and
Newton, and every pure and
wise spirit that ever took flesh.
To be great is to be misunderstood.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
