There is a basic knowledge which is necessary for every human being; until a person has acquired this basic knowledge, all other kinds of knowledge will be harmful for him. (Leo Tolstoy, A Calendar of Wisdom, 25 January)
I cannot change what I believe as long as I believe it. (Iyanla Vanzant, Just For Today! 28 January)
Let not the future disturb you. You will face it with the same reason which you now use for present things. (Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, VII-8)
- Yesterday between 134 and 150 people went ice fishing on Lake Erie. The sheriff certainly was upset when the plywood bridge to the place they were fishing fell in the lake and he had to call out all of his resources to rescue all but one. He said everyone had been warned to stay off the ice. Go figure! There may be a shortage of jobs and a shortage of money in this country. There's no shortage of stupidity.
