tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

| If one clue to psychopathy is a trivial mind expressing itself in
high-sounding phases, then an education emphasizing facts rather than thinking, and patriotic, politically or religiously correct
"values" rather than critical judgment may produce a nation of achieving high school graduate who are also psychopaths.
~ James Hillman
| The art of living is more like that of wrestling, than of dancing.
The main thing is to stand firm and be ready for an unforseen attack.

| The capacity for getting along with our neighbor depends to a large
extent on the capacity for getting along ourselves. The self-respecting individual will try to be as tolerant of his neighbor's
shortcomings as he is of his own.

| The Latin word for 'man' (vir) can easily be recognized in the word
virtue, as its root derivation, suggesting that 'virture' and 'manliness' were integrally linked in the Roman mind...In the classical
world - and arguably in boys' schools - manliness is defined more by virtue and less by night...The primary challenge of our schools
is to help boys fuse 'gentleness' with 'manliness.'
~ Damon Bradley
| Anger, if not restrained, is frequently more hurtful to us
than the injury that provokes it.
| No man can think clearly when his fists are clenched.
~ George Jean Nathan
| What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared
to what lies within us.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
