From My Commonplace Book


"You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."~~James D. Miles

"I am afraid that schools will prove to be wide gates to hell unless they diligently labor in explaining the Holy Scriptures, engraving them in the hearts of youth. I advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not constantly occupied with the Word of God must become currupt."~~Martin Luther

"The feeling that 'if nothing is happening, nothing is happening' is the prejudice of a superficial, dependent and hollow spirit, one that has succumbed to the age and can prove its own excellence only by the pseudo-events it is constantly organizing, like a bee, to that end."~~Vaclav Havel

"My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular."~~Adlai Stevenson
