At the other end of the income scale, there’s a swath of lower-wage workers who are underemployed or unemployed, with too much unwanted leisure, and zero status for that. For shift workers, devices mean they’re accessible in ways they weren’t before, susceptible to that call from the boss to log more hours.” ~ Katrina Onstad

  58. “The weak are not a noble breed. Their sublime deeds of faith, daring, and self-sacrifice usually spring from questionable motives. The weak hate not wickedness but weakness; and one instance of their hatred of weakness is hatred of self. All the passionate pursuits of the weak are in some degree a striving to escape, blur, or disguise an unwanted self. It is a striving shot through with malice, envy, self-deception, and a host of petty impulses; yet it often culminates in superb achievements.” ~ Eric Hoffer

Pro-lifers do not believe in contraception.’ [John] O’Connor’s watching this said,`I want to tell you I’m delighted that Nat is not a member of the Catholic Church. We have enough trouble as it is.'” ~ Nat Hentoff
  62. “To include freedom in the very definition of democracy is to define a process not by its actual characteristics as a process but by its hoped for results.
