"The trouble with the world," said the Master with a sigh, "is that human beings refuse to grow up."
"When can a person be said to have grown up?" asked a disciple.
"On the day he does not need to be lied to about anything."

Anthony de Mello, SJ

When someone says "I'm not doing this for the money, it's for the principle", you can be sure it's for the money.

So, then, to every man his chance -- to every man, regardless of his birth,
his shining golden opportunity -- to every man his right to live, to work, to be himself,
to become whatever his manhood and his vision can combine to make him -- this,
seeker, is the promise of America.

--Thomas Wolfe

I disagree. We are all influenced by the pain/pleasure principle. We all move toward pleasure. Thus, pleasure is a goal.

Not a famous person quote, just heard on a radio talk show......

We don't have a health care system in the United States, we have a sick care system.

Refers to various things as I see it:
- health care is not really preventative
- there are too many people without insurance and routine care
- the exhobitant cost to individuals and the nation as a whole

Over the last 15 months, we've traveled to every corner of the United States.
I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go.
