The person who stands up and says, ``This is
stupid,'' either is asked to `behave' or, worse,
is greeted with a cheerful ``Yes, we know!
Isn't it terrific!''

I have always referenced these when in doubt about what I do...

Aesop
"It is easy to be brave when far away from danger."

Robert C. Savage
"You can measure a man by the opposition it takes to discourage him."

Rabindranath Tagore
"Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain, but for the heart to conquer it."

Voltaire
"Stand upright, speak thy thoughts, declare the truth thou hast, that all may share; be bold, proclaim it everywhere. They only live who dare."

Unknown
"You have never lived until you have almost died, for those who fight for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know."

That is my favorite one and why I live as I do....

Let's not be too tough on our own ignorance. It's the thing that makes
America great. If America weren't incomparably ignorant, how could we
have tolerated the last eight years

Which Zappa said that?

Edit:

Never mind. It was Frank Zappa commenting on the terms of Ronald Reagan. I had the same opinion at the time, but looking back on those years, as tough as they were, the ultimate outcome was pretty good for the nation.

Kid's heads are filled with so many nonfacts that when they get out of
school they're totally unprepared to do anything. They can't read, they
can't write, they can't think. Talk about child abuse. The U.S. school
system as a whole qualifies.

My contributions today are, well lets just say I wont be getting any points from the religious.



God is a sound people make when they're too tired to think anymore.
-Edward Abbey

God is either cruel or incompetent.
-Woody Allen

I distrust those people who know so well what God wants them to do because I notice it always coincides with their own desires.
-Susan B. Anthony

At best, God can be viewed as nothing more than an uncaring incompetent father-figure.
-George Carlin

I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created
parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.

-Charles Darwin

When you stand between two mirrors you’re spread out among the images, your whole soul is pulled out thin, and somewhere in the distant images a dark part of you might get out and come looking for you, if you aren’t careful.
– Terry Pratchett, Witches Abroad

The mirrors aren't necessary!
