QUote of the Day

Enjoy present pleasures in such a way as not to injure future ones.

— Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Quote of the Day

Anyone who believes in indefinite growth in anything physical,
on a physically finite planet, is either mad or an economist.

— Kenneth Boulding

Quote of the Day

The colors which were once
so beautiful
Have faded.
Who in our world
Will last forever?
Today, I cross
Life’s furthermost mountain.
There shall be no more
shallow dreaming,
No more drunkenness

— Kiikai

Cita del Día

Nadie ha logrado convencerme racionalmente de la existencia de Dios, pero tampoco de su no existencia. Y si creo en Dios, o, por lo menos creo creer en El, es, ante todo, porque quiero que Dios exista… Es cosa de corazón.

— Miguel de Unamuno

Cita del Día

Mi querido y caduco hijo: ¿cómo puedes aguantar esa monserga? La religión es muy propia para criados, pero no para gentes bien educadas. No es preciso que seas religioso para que te comportes como un caballero.

— David Ogilvy (“Confesiones de un Publicitario”)

Cita del Día

…pertenece a aquellos que se han enzarzado entre dos épocas, que se han salido de toda seguridad e inocencia, aquellos cuyo sino es vivir todos los enigmas de la vida humana sublimados como infierno y tormento en su propia persona.

— Hermann Hesse (“El Lobo Estepario”)

Quote of the Day

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful to do
so. He studies it because he takes pleasure in it, and he takes pleasure
in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not
be worth knowing, and life would not be worth living. I am not speaking,
of course, of the beauty which strikes the senses, of the beauty of
qualities and appearances. I am far from despising this, but it has
nothing to do with science. What I mean is that more intimate beauty
which comes from the harmonious order of its parts, and which a pure
intelligence can grasp.

–Henri Poincaré

Quote of the Day

1) Don’t hurt people: Free people just want to be left alone, not hassled or harmed by someone else with an agenda or designs over their life and property.
2) Don’t take people’s stuff: USA’s founders fought to ensure property rights and our individual right to the fruits of our labors.
3) Take responsibility: Liberty takes responsibility. Don’t sit around waiting for someone else to solve your problems.
4) Work for it: For every action there is an equal reaction. Work hard and you’ll be rewarded.
5) Mind your own business: Free people live and let live.
6) Fight the power: Thanks to the Internet and the decentralization of knowledge, there are more opportunities than ever to take a stand against corrupt authority.

— Matt Kibbe

Quote of the Day

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history
is the most important of all the lessons of history.

— Aldous Huxley

Quote of the Day

No one man can terrorize a whole nation unless we are all his
accomplices.

— Edward R. Murrow
