Quote of the Day
The boundaries which divide Life from Death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where the one ends, and where the other begins?
Edgar Allan Poe
The purpose of terrorism lies not just in the violent act itself. It is in producing terror. It sets out to inflame, to divide, to produce consequences which they then use to justify further terror.
It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs.
I think the key divide between the interactive media and the narrative media is the difficulty in opening up an empathic pathway between the gamer and the character, as differentiated from the audience and the characters in a movie or a television show.
Divide each difficulty into as many parts as is feasible and necessary to resolve it.
Grief can take care if itself, but to get the full value of a joy you must have somebody to divide it with.
It is absurd to divide people into good and bad. People are either charming or tedious.
For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously. He's not from another planet, or filled with radioactive gunk. I mean, Superman is essentially a god, but Batman is more like Hercules: he's a human being, very flawed, and bridges the divide.
The failure of academic feminists to recognize difference as a crucial strength is a failure to reach beyond the first patriarchal lesson. In our world, divide and conquer must become define and empower.

Neale Donald Walsch
I've led a school whose faculty and students examine and discuss and debate every aspect of our law and legal system. And what I've learned most is that no one has a monopoly on truth or wisdom.

Thomas E. Mann

Leonardo da Vinci
