Quote of the day...

“There are no ordinary people. 

You have never talked to a mere mortal. 

Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - 

these are mortal, and 

their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. 

But it is immortals whom we joke with, 

work with, marry, snub and exploit - 

immortal horrors or everlasting splendors. 

This does not mean that we are to be perpetually 

solemn.-We must play. 

But our merriment must be of that kind 

(and it is, in fact, the merriest kind) 

which exists between people 

who have, from the outset, taken each other seriously - 

no flippancy, no superiority, no presumption.”

― C.S. Lewis

As offered by Janathan Hill @St.francis.

Quote of the Day........

"It seems as if the Department [of Justice]

sees the value of the Bill of Rights as

no more than obstacles to be overcome."

-- Prof. Sanford H. Kadish
