Just a Few Thoughts

To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. ~Elbert Hubbard

I am thankful for all the complaining I hear about our government because it means we have freedom of speech. ~Nancie J. Carmody

I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ~Voltaire

In America the majority raises formidable barriers around the liberty of opinion; within these barriers an author may write what he pleases, but woe to him if he goes beyond them. ~Alexis de Tocqueville

The very aim and end of our institutions is just this: that we may think what we like and say what we think. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Oh, so true. All the division is making me feel a bit off key. Thanks for the great reminders!
p.s. And last week, thanks for sharing about your Fibinacci experience with your library visitors. I couldn't stop chuckling. Librarians are *resource*ful!
