A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

In nothing does man, with his grand notions of heaven and charity, show forth his innate, low-bred, wild animalism more clearly than in his treatment of his brother beasts. From the shepherd with his lambs to the red-handed hunter, it is the same; no recognition of rights — only murder in one form or another.

John Muir, naturalist, explorer, and writer (1838-1914) 

A THOUGHT FOR TODAY

The tax which will be paid for the purpose of education is not more than the thousandth part of what will be paid to kings, priests, and nobles who will rise up among us if we leave the people in ignorance.

Thomas Jefferson, third US president, architect, and author (1743-1826)
