A Quote I Like...

After 9/11 when the country was gearing up for war I was in a shop and found a bumper sticker with a quote by Ghandi:

"An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind"

I bought the bumper sticker & it is on my rear bumper to this day.

ya know, there are 2 kinds of people in this world. There are those that separate everything and everyone into types and those that don't:)

Revenge may be sweet but like sugar, it leaves a sower taste in your mouth.

Good on ya. Love that one, " anger can be useful and very constructive if used intelligently. Destructive if we abuse it" - M. Gandhi

so true:)

Right on

very wise. The old testament says that but it was meant to be used for social justice. The idea was that the punishment could never be greater than the crime.

Very true. I like it.

very true

First they take your eye, then your wife, then your property, then your life. Hence an eye for an eye. Stand up to the bully or lie down and be run over. I don't like violence either but some people are just damn mean and ruthless and must be stopped.

Yes, and the US the first in the line of bullies to be stopped. That is, the US is in the best possible position to stand up to the bully that is itself.

Given the power that we possess and have possessed since WWII, we really have been comparative angels. Look at the Soviet Union. If it weren't for us they would have tried to make the world communistic.

"FREEDOM,in other words,is a matter of gradually acquiring the capacity to choose the good and to do what we choose with perfection ......

He are my thoughts as a person that is literally blind, What would the cost be if we didn't act. How many 9/11 acts would it take before we said enough and stopped the deadly attack? Last time we took "revenge" was Pearl Harbor and thus ended a world war that if we didn't get involved, the world would have had countless more loss in life.

It really wasn't revenge, it was a war for survival. Our selves and the Asian Continent.

Very true quote! And the world has changed so much since 9/11, if only it could be made undone!

Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

I forgot who said it off the top of my head, but "Every generalization if false, including this one." I think it was Mark Twain.
