    The meanest, most contemptible kind of praise is that which first speaks well of a man, and then qualifies it with a 'but'.
    - Henry Ward Beecher

    You can imprison a man, but not an idea. You can exile a man, but not an idea. You can kill a man, but not an idea.

    Today's Chuckle...from the November 23, 1963 issue of The Daily Mining Gazette:
    You can always spot a well-informed man. His views are usually the same as yours.

    "We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.
    We must make our election between economy and liberty
    or profusion and servitude.
    If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and
    in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and
    our amusements, for our calling and our creeds...
    [we will] have no time to think, no means of calling
    our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain
    subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains
    on the necks of our fellow-sufferers...
    And this is the tendency of all human governments.
    A departure from principle in one instance
    becomes a precedent for [another ]...
    till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery...
    And the fore-horse of this frightful team is public debt.
    Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression."
    ~Thomas Jefferson

    There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story...don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words - the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book. - Stephen King

    Practice hope. As hopefulness becomes a habit, you can achieve a permanently happy spirit.

    Sometimes I wonder if the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it. - Mark Twain
