Quote of the Day

Alexis de Tocqueville
The desktop computer industry is dead. Innovation has virtually ceased. Microsoft dominates with very little innovation. That's over. Apple lost. The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and it's going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years, or certainly for the rest of this decade.

If I go into the place in myself that is love, and you go into the place in yourself that is love, we are together in love. Then you and I are truly in love, the state of being love. That's the entrance to Oneness. That's the space I entered when I met my guru.
Cooking is like love. It should be entered into with abandon or not at all.
Harriet Van Horne
Marriage is an alliance entered into by a man who can't sleep with the window shut, and a woman who can't sleep with the window open.
George Bernard Shaw

As soon as there is language, generality has entered the scene.
War should never be entered upon until every agency of peace has failed.
President Obama knows that wars are not to be entered into lightly; he knows that overseas conflicts don't only do damage in the land in which they are fought, but in the land of those who fight them, as well.
As legal slavery passed, we entered into a permanent period of unemployment and underemployment from which we have yet to emerge.

Ellen G. White
