Quote of the Day
Time will inevitably uncover dishonesty and lies; history has no place for them.

R. Buckminster Fuller
Grateful daughters of God guard their bodies carefully, for they know they are the wellsprings of life, and they reverence life. They don't uncover their bodies to find favor with the world. They walk in modesty to be in favor with their Father In Heaven. They know he loves them dearly.
Margaret D. Nadauld
A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality.
God gives us intelligence to uncover the wonders of nature. Without the gift, nothing is possible.
The press don't wake up in the morning simply to be a mouthpiece for pols - they're out to uncover and expose news.

I always say I've given 24 insufficient performances and I'm looking forward to the time in my life when I'll do something that I think is good.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
