As I believe Mr. D has not contributed a quotes thread today himself here I am doing the bidding of my own accord smile........

'The soul is healed by being around children.'
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

'Few indeed have been found to resist the crowd, to stand up alone before misguided masses, to face their implacable frenzy without weapons and with folded arms to dare a no when a yes is demanded.'
Hannah Arendt

'I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others that at last their true nature could not reveal itself.'
Soren Kierkegaard

'What is the first business of one who practices philosophy? To get rid of self-conceit. For it is impossible for anyone to begin to learn that which he thinks he already knows.'

Talking about Salinas Valley, California... "It was an unlikely place for a man from a green country to come to, but he came about thirty years before the turn of the century and he brought with him his tiny Irish wife, a tight hard little woman humorless... 

'Humorless as a chicken.' XD

First time I have read that metaphor, although I do think chicken can occasionally act funny xD. The second one in essence saying the glass is half full . I like them both. Cheers, Filip

I am not in favour of ever trying to deceive people.

Lol, not his, my post above.

 By: Adamska : March 16th, 2019-09:59
I thought his remark was aimed at one of my quotes in original post! Apologies, Filip


 By: Adamska : March 16th, 2019-10:46
This is how the sequence of events happened, as simply described as possible: 1. Cpt. A. posted his questioning answer. This for some reason, even though it was made to someone else's post, showed up in my unanswered responses tab. 2. I open my unanswered...
