Holy Words

However many holy words you read, however many you speak, what good will they do you if you do not act on upon them?

Quotes

I try to post at least one quote per day — included in these quotes is a series from Albert Einstein.

Hopefully many of these quotes will cause you to think, after all

A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Why so many quotes?

I’ve been asked by several individuals why I publish so many quotes on my BLOG.

The answer is simple.

You gain new perspective by viewing an issue from another vantage point.

Good quotes are ones that make us think and reassess the conclusions we’ve drawn about a topic.

Even if you don’t change your view point, a quote is often good for a chuckle — or a shake of your head.

Ultimately Destructive For America

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine Tuesday 26 October 2010, President Barrack Obama said

Look, as president, I swore to uphold the Constitution, and part of that Constitution is a free press. We’ve got a tradition in this country of a press that oftentimes is opinionated. The golden age of an objective press was a pretty narrow span of time in our history. Before that, you had folks like Hearst who used their newspapers very intentionally to promote their viewpoints. I think Fox is part of that tradition — it is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class and is competitive in the world. But as an economic enterprise, it’s been wildly successful. And I suspect that if you ask Mr. Murdoch what his number-one concern is, it’s that Fox is very successful.

I’d say Fox News is destructive to Obama; and American’s are destructive to America… after all, not only is speech and press free in this country — but are each free to decide where to tune in to get our fill of lies and propaganda… some make a slightly more educated choice than others, but in the end no one should be gullible enough to trust a single news outlet or the government (ever).

Fate

I do not believe in a fate that falls on men however they act; but I do believe in a fate that falls on them unless they act.

Elections

The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.

Duck Test

If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck.


This phrase may have originally be coined as:

When I see a bird that walks like a duck and swims like a duck and quacks like a duck, I call that bird a duck.
