    To make someone's life better, even for a few days, is a reward in itself.

    Two paths to choose from, illustration through evidence or for force of will by argument, with our words we each decide which is the wisest. - Ascended

    I have 2 favorite quotes that I wish to live by. One is, "There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him it is right...."by Martin Luther. The other is, "When one door closes another opens. But often we look so long so regretfully upon the closed door that we fail to see the one that has opened for us." by Helen Keller.

    Very good. But is that Martin Luther or Martin Luther King (Jr)?

    Your second one has a pessimistic cousin:

    "One door closes; another clicks shut."
    And what does the Lord require of you but to love justice, to be merciful and to walk humbly with Him?

    "Stonn, she is yours. After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true." -Mr. Spock (never got his doctorate) said this when Vulcan Stonn took his 'intended wife' in the Spock's Wedding episode.

    On Vulcan they don't have degrees within their educational system just like Buddhists here on Earth.

    Yes, but on one of his visits to Earth, after he visited the Buddhists, Spock attended an Anglican service. A very portly nursemaid took a seat only to have the bench creak loudly - disturbing all of the other worshipers and embarrassing her greatly. McCoy looked up from his prayerful contemplation and asked Spock what had caused that noise. Spock: "The needs of the nanny outweigh the needs of the pew."

    It turns out that an eerie type of chaos can lurk just behind a façade of order—and yet, deep inside the chaos lurks an even eerier type of order.

    Do you mean Major Wolfgang Hochstetter of Hogan's Heroes?



    I hadn't realized he was so deep. Your quotation sounds like he was trying to explain to Colonel Klink what was really going on at Stalag 13!

    (Oh, I dislike typos. I edited my original to needs of the pew. Could you kindly edit your quotation of me? Thanks.

    Dr. Johnson? I would have thought Dr. Jekyll.
