Indeed. I was struck by his ability to pinpoint the source of his meloncholia; at least that day...

This one really hit me to the core and has become my raison d'etre.  However I can see how people may apply their own meaning to it, I sure did.   Some may say that it is socialist or facist (what the diff?) mantra designed to perpetuate servitude to the state.   I took it as service to the universe and to those in your personal realm.  The notion that your reason for existence is to help, take care of and support or just behave in such a way as to improve all of those you have contact, influence andor responsibility for.   This is how our time should be passed:

From last portion of Statue of Liberty dedication speech in 1886:

 

The rays from this beacon, lighting this
gateway to the continent, will welcome the
poor and the persecuted with the hope and
promise of homes and citizenship. It will
teach them that there is room and brother-
hood for all who will support our institutions
and aid in our development; but that those
who come to disturb our peace and dethrone
our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

Anyone who knows me in person or even on this forum knows I am quite the antithesis of a religious person, but that doesn't mean the Bible does not hold a lot of wisdom:


"Now some cried out one thing, some another, for the assembly was in confusion, and most of them did not know why they had come together." Acts 19:32

Anger is the product of emotion; based on a sense of frustration or unfairness, and as such  can be converted to positive motivation to right wrongs and correct injustice in any form or format. Hatred is a product of fear and as such can only feed on itself until nothing is left to salvage of a thinking feeling human being. Hatred is cancer of the spirit, and fear is its leering father and beneficiary ...

Facebook and Reddit have made the fake quote-picture a staple of online discussions, but there is a long and ignoble history of misquoting famous people to suit contemporary agendas.

Right. If it's on Facebook it must be true, and if it's not then by cracky we can repeat it enough times that eventually it will be...
