Quote of the Day
There is no doubt that some plant food, such as oatmeal, is more economical than meat, and superior to it in regard to both mechanical and mental performance.

Alfred Russel Wallace

Johann Kaspar Lavater
There is something decidedly faux about the camaraderie of Facebook, something illusory about the connectedness of Twitter.
Many of my friends and family are scratching it out somewhere decidedly south of the ever widening gap between the haves and have nots, looking at losing their homes, colleges they can't afford and healthcare they can't avail themselves of.

George Orwell's '1984' frequently tops surveys of our greatest books: it's not a celebration of poetic language.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
