These are December 2011's Thoughts of the Day
“The plural of anecdote is not data.”
⇒ George Stigler
“Life is a game. In order to have a game, something has to be more important than something else. If what already is, is more important than what isn't, the game is over. So, life is a game in which what isn't, is more important than what is. Let the good times roll.”
⇒ Werner Erhard
“Perhaps at fourteen every boy should be in love with some ideal woman to put on a pedestal and worship. As he grows up, of course, he will put her on a pedestal the better to view her legs.”
⇒ Barry Norman, in "The Listener"
Life may have no meaning, or, even worse, it may have a meaning of which you disapprove.
Barking dogs don't bite… while they are barking.
Yield and overcome;
Bend and be straight;
Empty and be full;
Wear out and be new;
Have little and gain;
Have much and be confused.
Therefore the wise embrace the one
And set an example to all.
Not putting on a display,
They shine forth.
Not justifying themselves,
They are distinguished.
They receive recognition.
They never falter.
They do not quarrel,
So no one quarrels with them.
Therefore the ancients say, "Yield and overcome."
Is that an empty saying?
Be really whole,
And all things will come to you.
“Prayer should be the key to the day and the deadbolt to the night.”
⇒ Thomas Fuller (1610-1661), British churchman and writer
Merry Christmas to all from Coloradoan Anti-Censorship Network. Especially so to those that have been most hurt by injustice this season. Those that cause hurt and injure love in the end will find that the most important lesson that Jesus Christ bought to this plane of existence is true: that its all about love.
