Inspirations for Fri., Mar. 4, 2011


--

Don't shout till you are out of the woods.

English proverb

--

Real intelligence is a creative use of knowledge, not merely an accumulation of facts. The slow thinker who can finally come up with an idea of his own is more important to the world than a walking encyclopedia who hasn't learned how to use information productively.

D. Kenneth Winebrenner

--

From long familiarity, we know what honor is. It is what enables the individual to do right in the face of complacency and cowardice. It is what enables the soldier to die alone, the political prisoner to resist, the singer to sing her song, hardly appreciated, on a side street.

Mark Helprin
American Novelist and Writer
