DATETHOUGHT OF THE DAY
9/1/14     "Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life." - Confucius
9/2/14     "All of humanity's problems stem from man's inability to sit quietly in a room alone."- Blaise Pascal
9/3/14     "Our power is our ability to decide." - Buckminister Fuller

9/5/14     "These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated." - Thomas Paine

9/15/14     "When I despair, I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it, always." - Mohandas Gandhi
