The first great need, therefore, is integrity and high purpose.” ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

  46. “[James Comey] should have gone to the Public Integrity section and said ‘What do you folks think.’ It’s a little bit of an odd situation because he’s a former deputy attorney general as well as head of the FBI so he may have trouble keeping on only the investigator hat forgetting that he’s a former deputy attorney general.

They’re rolled into this one urban culture bubble; it’s not really to do with, “I’m specifically f – ked off about my country and what’s going on in my town.” We’re very much only showing success to artists who impress American artists, and I’m one of them.” ~ M.I.A.

The idea section. Sharon has some good ideas. Great cover and helpful contents!!!” ~ Brenda Poinsett

    a neighborhood of San Francisco?” ~ Bucky Sinister

Just as a silly example: How would the comment section on YouTube change if, to use it, you had to have the schooling necessary to have a basic understanding of how computers and the internet work? More seriously, would anyone smart enough to know how to design and build a tank, or a laser guided anti-aircraft missile, or a computer and video editing software be stupid enough to join ISIS? In fact, if such knowledge was required—would it even be possible for there to be standing armies?” ~ John C. Wright
  58. “Poetry restores language by breaking it, and I think that much contemporary writing restores fantasy, as a genre of writing in contrast to a genre of commodity or a section in a bookstore, by breaking it. Michael Moorcock revived fantasy by prying it loose from morality; writers like Jeff VanderMeer, Stepan Chapman, Lucius Shepard, Jeffrey Ford, Nathan Ballingrud are doing the same by prying fantasy away from pedestrian writing, with more vibrant and daring styles, more reflective thinking, and a more widely broadcast spectrum of themes.” ~ Michael Cisco

My face and the faces of other travellers were now mirrored on this darkness in a succession of stillnesses. Consider this, said the darkness: any motion at any speed is a succession of stillnesses; any section through an action will show just such a plane of stillness as this dark window in which your seeking face is mirrored. And in each plane of stillness is the moment of clarity that makes you responsible for what you do.” ~ Russell Hoban
  63. “I plan my life in 15-minute sections.” ~ Dave Pelzer

  64. “Beyond the immediate risks to her health and the health of her baby, when a woman chooses c-section, she decreases the chance that she will be able to get pregnant again and increases the chance that if she does get pregnant, the pregnancy will occur outside the uterus, a situation that never results in a live baby and is life-threatening to the woman. Furthermore, the risk of having an unexplained stillbirth doubles when a woman has had a previous c-section.” ~ Marsden Wagner
  65. “Raw pain alarms. us. It reminds us that life isn’t as orderly as we’d hoped. We demand that pain settle down before we shuffle it off to the quiet table.
