Quote of the Day

Freedom isn't free. It shouldn't be a bragging point that 'Oh, I don't get involved in politics,' as if that makes someone cleaner. No, that makes you derelict of duty in a republic.

Friendship is the source of the greatest pleasures, and without friends even the most agreeable pursuits become tedious.
All, all is theft, all is unceasing and rigorous competition in nature; the desire to make off with the substance of others is the foremost - the most legitimate - passion nature has bred into us and, without doubt, the most agreeable one.
Marquis de Sade

Hope, deceiving as it is, serves at least to lead us to the end of our lives by an agreeable route.
Francois de La Rochefoucauld
Choose the life that is most useful, and habit will make it the most agreeable.

What, then, can God do in our interests but make 'our own life' less agreeable to us, and take away the plausible sources of false happiness?
C. S. Lewis

John James Audubon

C. S. Lewis
