Quotes of the Day Part 1: Day 11

Bertrand Russell's
10 Commandments of Education

Commandment #1:

Do not feel absolutely certain of anything.

Commandment #2:
Do not think it worth while to proceed by concealing evidence, for the evidence is sure to come to light.

Commandment #3:
Never try to discourage thinking for you are sure to succeed.

Commandment #4:
When you meet with opposition, even if it should be from your husband or your children, endeavor to overcome it by argument and not by authority, for a victory dependent upon authority is unreal and illusory.

Commandment #5:
Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found.

Commandment #6:
Do not use power to suppress opinions you think pernicious, for if you do the opinions will suppress you.

Commandment #7:
Do not fear to be eccentric in opinion, for every opinion now accepted was once eccentric.

Commandment #8:
Find more pleasure in intelligent dissent than in passive agreement, for, if you value intelligence as you should, the former implies a deeper agreement than the latter.

Commandment #9:
Be scrupulously truthful, even if the truth is inconvenient, for it is more inconvenient when you try to conceal it.

Commandment #10:
Do not feel envious of the happiness of those who live in a fool’s paradise, for only a fool will think that it is happiness.

Do you fear the wind?

Do you fear the force of the wind,
The slash of the rain?

Go face them and fight them,
Be savage again.

Go hungry and cold like the wolf,
Go wade like the crane.

The palms of your hands will thicken,
The skin of your cheek will tan.

You'll grow ragged and weary and swarthy,
But you'll walk like a man.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and
    it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
