Anger is the product of emotion; based on a sense of frustration or unfairness, and as such  can be converted to positive motivation to right wrongs and correct injustice in any form or format. Hatred is a product of fear and as such can only feed on itself until nothing is left to salvage of a thinking feeling human being. Hatred is cancer of the spirit, and fear is its leering father and beneficiary ...

“It is rare for people to be asked the question which puts them squarely in front of themselves”

“A child's spirit is like a child, you can never catch it by running after it; you must stand still, and, for love, it will soon itself come back.”

Right. If it's on Facebook it must be true, and if it's not then by cracky we can repeat it enough times that eventually it will be...

It's very unlikely old Benny ever said that, but it's been floating around the innerwebs for a while.

"I really believe we should have and still should take out his air fields and prevent him from being able to use them to bomb innocent people and drop sarin gas on them” Clinton made the comment during an interview with New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof at a women's summit.

Former first lady Laura Bush in her oblique endorsement of Hillary Clinton:

 

I want our next president – whoever he or she might be – to be somebody who is interested in women in Afghanistan and who will continue US policies… that we continue to do what we’re committed to do as a country.

That’s who I want – or the kind of people that will do that and will pay attention to our history, and know what’s what’s happened before and know specifically how we can continue to do the good things that we do around the world.

 

I sure hope it is sinking in now how Clinton is the successor to the Bush, Obama Neocon legacy not Trump or Cruz who are just off the reservation crazy.

Marcus Aurelius is dead...

"In the life of a man, his time is but a moment, his being an incessant flux, his sense a dim rushlight, his body a prey of worms, his soul an unquiet eddy, his fortune dark, his fame doubtful. In short, all that is body is as coursing waters, all that is of the soul as dreams and vapors."  —Marcus Aurelius



 

Yet for all that, he was Emperor, he decided, he fought, he mattered, he thought, he lived his Stoic ideals as well as anyone could, he wrote, he lived, did comparatively little harm to the people that mattered to him, defended what he thought of as civilization, and all more fully than most of us ever could. Which is why you quote him, imperfect as he was and as we all are. Pretty close to the ideal philosopher king, and a pretty good choice for a pretty good guy.

If only he could have made a wiser choice concerning his succession.

"Because your own strength is unequal to the task, do not assume that it is beyond the powers of man; but if anything is within the powers and province of man, believe that it is within your own compass also."

Kierkegaard is dead...

"What is the Absurd? It is, as may quite easily be seen, that I, a rational being, must act in a case where my reason, my powers of reflection, tell me: you can just as well do the one thing as the other, that is to say where my reason and reflection say: you cannot act and yet here is where I have to act... The Absurd, or to act by virtue of the absurd, is to act upon faith ... I must act, but reflection has closed the road so I take one of the possibilities and say: This is what I do, I cannot do otherwise because I am brought to a standstill by my powers of reflection."

—Søren Kierkegaard, Journals, 1849
