"What we have in life that we can count our own is who we are and where we come from. For better or worse, that's what we have to sustain us in our endeavors, to buttress us in our darker moments, and remind us of our identity. Without those things, we are adrift."

Postby Willie Kool on Sat Jan 28, 2012 10:27 pm

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

These are Ron's top learned quotes and rules of engagement/life:
1. "Never sign a check that can't be cashed" - Your name means it is so and fact as far as you can physically chase it.
2. "Don't lie" - Your crediblity is doomed once you start down this path.
3. "Always try to qualify your opinions as opinions" - They are only your insights. Sometimes they are based on things that aren't completely verified, without proven facts that can be cashed (see number 1). The percentage of them being right contributes to number 2.

I try really hard to stay within these rules, but all humans will fail at times.
