    I'd appreciate it if you didn't make this thread a place for political argument and/or discussion. There are plenty of threads out there that you can use for that purpose. If you have a quote you want to put up, feel free to do that.

    You posted before I edited. I would like this not to become a political discussion thread.

    And yes, it's one I liked very much. I think it speaks to us today as much as it did back then.

    I have no problem with not making this a political or an argumentative thread, but you are the one that posted a long political post, I just responded. I didn't know 500 word quotes are considered "favorite quotations"

    Is that another rule from the word police? Come on, patrick. You're critiquing my quote length? It needed the length for context, if I'd put in only the part that resonated with me, it wouldn't have made sense.

    I'm not asking for a lot, just that this doesn't turn into a thread fighting about left and right. There are enough of those to go around in the politics forum.

    Oh i agree, and heres one liberals love, in fact they play by it daily.

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” Joseph Goebbels Nazi

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    I have a three-by-five up there with this fragment of a sentence from a story by Chekhov: "... and suddenly everything became clear to him." I find these words filled with wonder and possibility. I love their simple clarity, and the hint of revelation that's implied. There is mystery, too. What has been unclear before? Why is it just now becoming clear? What's happened? Most of all - what now? There are consequences as a result of such sudden awakenings. I feel a sharp sense of relief - and anticipation.

    That's true of many Nazi quotes.
    "If you say the Rosary faithfully until death, I do assure you that, in spite of the gravity of your sins 'you shall receive a never fading crown of glory.' [2] Even if you are on the brink of damnation, even if you have one foot in Hell, even if you have sold your soul to the devil as sorcerers do who practise black magic, and even if you are a heretic as obstinate as a devil, sooner or later you will be converted and will amend your life and save your soul, if----and mark well what I say----if you say the Holy Rosary devoutly every day until death for the purpose of knowing the truth and obtaining contrition and pardon for your sins" (St. Louis Marie de Montfort, Secret of the Rosary, Red Rose).

    If you've wondered what you would have done in 1930s Germany or during the civil rights movement, congratulations: you're doing it now.

    Native American Indians have been warning the white settlers not to build and live near the ocean for 300+ years.

    A good saying. "dont live next to the ocean!"

    Transformative Experience... is a kind of experience that is both radically new to you and changes you in a deep and fundamental way. Many of life’s biggest decisions involve choices to have experiences that teach us things we cannot know about from any other source but the experience itself. The lesson I draw is that life may be more about discovery, and coming to terms with who we’ve made ourselves into via our choices, than about carefully executing a plan for self-realization. With many big life choices, we only learn what we need to know after we’ve done it, and we change in the process of doing it.

    L.A. Paul


    I'm still in shock at the realization of how big an idea this is. I have a lot of unpacking to do.

    You know that undergoing the experience will change what it is like for you to live your life, and perhaps even change what it is like to be you, deeply and fundamentally.

    Images from a book review at a longtime favorite website of mine: brainpickings.org.

    A Child of Books.

    What beautifully imaginative artwork and typography. I was entranced. And I wanted to share.
