“The whole trouble lies in that people think that there are conditions excluding the necessity of love in their intercourse with man, but such conditions do not exist. Things may be treated without love; one may chop wood, make bricks, forge iron without love, but one can no more deal with people without love than one can handle bees without care.”

Leo Tolstoy

"When we are really honest with ourselves we must admit our lives are all that really belong to us. So it is how we use our lives that determines the kind of men we are."
Ceasar Chavez

"Good men are bound by conscience and liberated by accountability."

Wes Fessler


“you don't have to worry about burning bridges, if you're building your own”
Kerry E. Wagner


“It is wrong and immoral to seek to escape the consequences of one's acts.”
 Mahatma Gandhi

“A body of men holding themselves accountable to nobody ought not to be trusted by anybody.”
Thomas Paine

Perhaps nothing in our society is more needed for those in positions of authority than accountability. Too often those with authority are able (and willing) to surround themselves with people who support their decisions without question.
Larry Burkett

"Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom."
Buddha

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."
Charles Dickens

"Insights from myth, dreams, and intuitions, from glimpses of an invisible reality, and from perennial human wisdom provide us with hints and guesses about the meaning of life and what we are here for. Prayer, observance, discipline, thought and action are the means through which we grow and find meaning."
Jean Shinoda Bolen

"Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh...."
Kahlil Gibran

Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:
Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.
Proverbs 23:7

"We Americans claim to be a peace-loving people. We hate bloodshed; we are opposed to violence. Yet we go into spasms of joy over the possibility of projecting dynamite bombs from flying machines upon helpless citizens. We are ready to hang, electrocute, or lynch anyone, who, from economic necessity, will risk his own life in the attempt upon that of some industrial magnate. Yet our hearts swell with pride at the thought that America is becoming the most powerful nation on earth, and that she will eventually plant her iron foot on the necks of all other nations.

Such is the logic of patriotism." - Emma Goldman, What is Patriotism? (1908)

"Every single empire in its official discourse has said that it is not like all the others, that its circumstances are special, that it has a mission to enlighten, civilize, bring order and democracy, and that it uses force only as a last resort. And, sadder still, there always is a chorus of willing intellectuals to say calming words about benign or altruistic empires, as if one shouldn't trust the evidence of one's eyes watching the destruction and the misery and death brought by the latest mission civilizatrice." ~ Edward Said, Orientalism

Under the pressure of fanaticism, and with the mob complacently applauding the show, democratic law tends more and more to be grounded upon the maxim that every citizen is, by nature, a traitor, a libertine, and a scoundrel. In order to dissuade him from his evil-doing the police power is extended until it surpasses anything ever heard of in the oriental monarchies of antiquity. ~ H.L. Mencken

Excellent philosophy. But there are 'beliefs' that can arise from reasoned thought, no? An example: I believe State-sponsored capital punishment is wrong. I arrived at that conclusion after considering as many aspects of the subject as I could. I think I have even changed a few peoples' minds about it as well. Maybe that's not a 'belief' in the sense used here.

 

Yes, I think that is it. I would consider that more of an opinion in this context and I, like most people,  got lots of those!{#Mrgreen}
