The thing that impresses me most about America is the way parents obey their children.

3 before I lose them! :lol:

Marcus Aurelius telling us more of what he's learned of life:
From Rusticus:
"to keep clear of speechifying, versifying, and pretentious language; not to walk around at home in ceremonial dress, or do anything else like that ... to be readily recalled to conciliation with those who have taken or given offence."

From Sextus:
"a kindly disposition ... tolerance both of ordinary people and of the emptily opinionated."

From Alexander the grammarian:
"not to leap on mistakes, or captiously interrupt when anyone makes an error of vocabulary, syntax, or pronunciation, but neatly to introduce the correct form of that particular exression by way of answer ... or by some other such felicitous prompting."
I dream, therefore I am.

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.”

― Marcus Aurelius
