Quote of the day

" Know that although in the eternal scheme of things you are small, you are also unique and irreplaceable, as are all your fellow humans everywhere in the world.”

Margaret Laurence



" You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty."

Mohandas K. Gandhi

We should do well to remember both these quotes.

That sounds pretty profound for Margaret Laurence. I was surprised to see her name attached to it.

I am agreeing, no need to attack. :-)

You make me sound like some sort of rabid attack dog ;-) I don’t normally attack at all - I do point out where I think someone is mistaken, but in a civilised manner and understand that not everyone will necessarily agree with me.

I seldom do this with those who are actually agreeing ;-)

My policy too, I hope. Of course on my blog I am not at all controversial but I do sometimes land in hot water in the "comment" section, especially at James's site. Then I get on my high horse and become super polite.

A most civilized debater in my opinion and, in fact, I think he deserves a gold medal for it, is Beaman. He is a joy to watch in action.

Re Beaman. You are right there, very cool and calm.
