- I am...
- I am a fiercely private person
- I am an elitist and an epicure
- I am an epicurean elitist
- I am compulsive about everything I think, feel, say and do
- I am a photographer without a camera
- I am a painter without a brush
- I am a musician without an instrument
- I am a deceptively keen listener and observer
- I shall not judge...I don't hold a gavel
- I shall never censor myself just to comfort one's ignorance and intolerance
- I shall not debate what is not debatable
- I shall not talk unless I have something substantive to say, and even then, only I choose if or when to say it
- I show up
- I question...
- I do...
- I make...
- I share...
Daniel Patrick Moynihan once said that "we are entitled to our own opinions, but we are not entitled to our own facts."
However, too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
We should always feel compelled to identify that many issues in any debate are not actually debatable, but rather easily known facts. Too many people are simply denying the obvious.
"Before deciding to share publicly our thoughts and opinions, we need the kind of objectivity that makes us forget everything we have heard and read, clear the table, and do a factual study like any scientist would."
"Truth is truth even if no one believes it.
A lie is a lie even if everyone believes it."
No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.
- Abraham Lincoln
"All successful people are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose."
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated failures. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." - Calvin Coolidge
