A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

The bicycle is the most civilized conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart.

Iris Murdoch, writer (15 Jul 1919-1999) 

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

We can still holler and shout but we have to light the lamps that shed the light on corruption, injustice, ineptitude and abuse of power. When we do, you will see the villains scurry into the woodwork the way roaches do when you turn on the light. -Frank Serpico, police officer and whistleblower (b. 14 Apr 1936) 

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

A man who is ‘ill-adjusted’ to the world is always on the verge of finding himself. One who is adjusted to the world never finds himself, but gets to be a cabinet minister.

Hermann Hesse, novelist, poet, Nobel laureate (2 Jul 1877-1962)
