Quote of the Day
Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it.
I give the fight up: let there be an end, a privacy, an obscure nook for me. I want to be forgotten even by God.
When I tour, it's like, well, like a food tour as much as a comedy tour. I try to eat at all the weird places, the obscure barbecue joints, burger places. There are a few spots in L.A. that I'm obsessed with - one of them is the Taco Zone taco truck on Alvarado. There are secret off-menu items that are amazing.
The problem of how we finance the welfare state should not obscure a separate issue: if each person thinks he has an inalienable right to welfare, no matter what happens to the world, that's not equity, it's just creating a society where you can't ask anything of people.
Be obscure clearly.
E. B. White
For my birthday my husband learned to cook and is cooking one day a week for me. But he only likes to do fancy dishes. So we end up with weird, obscure things in the refrigerator.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

There's a world of difference between truth and facts. Facts can obscure the truth.
Existence is a series of footnotes to a vast, obscure, unfinished masterpiece.
Nothing is as real as a dream. The world can change around you, but your dream will not. Your life may change, but your dream doesn't have to. Responsibilities need not erase it. Duties need not obscure it.
Tradition means giving votes to the most obscure of all classes, our ancestors. It is the democracy of the dead. Tradition refuses to submit to that arrogant oligarchy who merely happen to be walking around.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

Edgar Allan Poe
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
C. S. Lewis
