Quote of the day........

It is proof of a base and low mind for 

One to wish to think with the masses or majority,

merely because the majority is the majority.

Truth does not change because it is, or is not, 

believed by a majority of the people.

-- Giordano Bruno(1548-1699)

Quote of the day...........

If I am not for myself, Who will be for me ?

If I am not for others, Who am I ?

And if not now, when ?

-- rabbi Hillel ( 110 BC- 10 AD )

Only a mediocre writer is always at his best.

-- Somerset Maugham.

This is It --Tich Nhat Hanh......

In the middle of the night

Like a drowning man

holding on to a blade of grass

seizing on a fleeting thought

to immemorialize  ones wits end

scribiling on blindly in darkness

hoping for a new dawn.
