Quote of the day.......

Sometimes people call me an idealist. 

Well, that is the way I know I am an American.

-President Woodrow Wilson- September 8,1919
in a speech at Sioux Falls, North Dakota.

            *      *       *      *      *

The idealist is incorrigible:

If he is expelled from his heaven, 

he makes an ideal out of hell.

-Friedrich Nietzsche, 
Mixed Opinions and Maxims, aphorism 23 (1879)
