Quote of the Day
Ridicule is a weak weapon when pointed at a strong mind; but common people are cowards and dread an empty laugh.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
Bananas are great, as I believe them to be the only known cure for existential dread. Also, Mother Teresa said that in India, a woman dying in the street will share her banana with anyone who needs it, whereas in America, people amass and hoard as many bananas as they can to sell for an exorbitant profit. So half of them go bad, anyway.

Charles M. Schulz
When you do a play, you have the kind of nightly feeling of accomplishment. But you also have the daily dread of the doing it every night.

Dread, which is closely related to fear, steals the ability to enjoy ordinary life and makes people anxious about the future. It keeps them from looking forward to the next day, the next month, or the next decade.

Liberty means responsibility. That is why most men dread it.

When fear makes your choices for you, no security measures on earth will keep the things you dread from finding you. But if you can avoid avoidance - if you can choose to embrace experiences out of passion, enthusiasm, and a readiness to feel whatever arises - then nothing, nothing in all this dangerous world, can keep you from being safe.

That's how I am.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
