As I started getting older, I realized, 'I'm so happy!'
I didn't expect this!
I wasn't happy when I was young.

It is better to debate a question without settling it than to settle a question without debating it.

Joseph Joubert

I had never heard of Joseph Joubert,1754 - 1824, a French moralist and essayist, remembered today largely for his Pensées, which were published posthumously. . I think I should read his Pensées or find some of his essays!

His best known quote is "Ask the young. They know everything." I like "Misery is almost always the result of thinking." I hadn't seen that one before.

Everything in the Universe, throughout all its kingdoms, is conscious: i.e., endowed with a consciousness of its own kind and on its own plane of perception.

Good thinking, Teddy. I never thought to equate it with "Nothing is impossible with God." :icon_biggrin:

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"

Isaac Asimov (1980)

So true. And it's gradually crept into the culture of other countries, too. It's certainly been the case here.

Though we seek always for our lives to be full of goodness, we sometimes lack courage to right the injustices that confront us.
Though we seek always to be generous, sometimes our fears cause us to be greedy.
Though we seek always to walk the moral high ground, sometimes we judge others too quickly and too harshly.
Though we seek always to understand the larger mysteries, sometimes doubt causes us to lose faith in our purpose.

There is a principle which is pure, placed in the human mind, which in different places and ages hath had different names. It is, however, pure and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, confined to no forms of religion, nor excluded from any, where the heart stands in perfect sincerity. In whomsoever this takes root and grows, of what nation soever, they become brethren in the best sense of the expression.

John Woolman, 1774
I dream, therefore I am.
