Get your facts first and then you can distort them as much as you wish.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)
THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value.
thomas paine "the crisis" December 23, 1776
One evening A wise old Cherokee Grandfather told his Grandson about A battle that was going on inside himself.
"My Grandson, it is a a battle between two wolves." said the wise old man.
"on one side: Anger, Envy, Sorrow, Regret, Greed, Arrogance, Selfiitty, Guilt, Resentment, Inferiority, Lies, False Pride, and Ego. Things of evil.
The other side is good: Joy, Peace, Love, Hope, Serenity, Humility, Kindness, Empathy, Generosity, Truth, Compassion and faith."
The Grandson thought about it for a minute and then ask his Grandfather
"Which wolf wins?"
With a simple smile he reply s.
"Which ever one I feed."
