A Word is Worth 1,000 Pictures
A word is worth a thousand pictures.
If I could dance it, I wouldn't have to.
”In life we make progress by conflict and
in mental life by argument and disputation....
There must be confrontation and opposition,
in order that sparks must be kindled.
Only an open conflict of ideas and principles
can produce any clarity. Even if all were
agreed on an essential proposition, it would
be essential to give an ear to the one
person who does not.” J.S.Mill
“Your goodness must have edge to it
else it is none.” Emerson.
“The greater part of what my neighbors
call good I believe in my soul to be bad,
and if I repent of anything, it is very likely
to be my good behavior. What demon
possessed me that I behaved so well?”
“Neither logic nor sermons convince,”
“Argument is essential for its own sake.”
"The dream of radical transformation, of one day waking up and finding
oneself a wholly different (more self confident, more serene) kind of
person, of escaping that prison of the given, of feeling divinely
capable.” Corrections. Jonathan Franzen
reconfigured and formatted
to fit my screed.
