Quote of the Week

I have decided to put up some thoughts of my own for quotes. There are so many things that I observe that seem to strike at the heart of things.
So, at the risk of sounding really pompous, here is the one for this week:

Do not believe the fallacy that good cannot exist without evil. Just as war, injustice, disease, cruelty and poverty are wholly abhorrent in themselves, so also truth, beauty, justice, kindness and compassion are wholly desirable in their own rights. The sun shining down on a full summer's day is no less bright for lack of darkness.

I like that. And, I hope that that's true. But, I do think that having a dark day the day before does make you appreciate that warm sun more.

Thanks for getting me thinking.
