Quote Of The Day — October 7, 2013

.
Now I realize that on any particular decision a very great amount of heat can be generated. But I do say this: life is not made up of just one decision here, or another one there. It is the total of the decisions that you make in your daily lives with respect to politics, to your family, to your environment, to the people about you. Government has to do that same thing. It is only in the mass that finally philosophy really emerges.”

 

President Dwight D. Eisenhower
Remarks at Luncheon Meeting of the Republican National Committee and the Republican National Finance Committee, 2/17/55

    Well, Grouchy, we certainly have a ‘ma(e)ss’ in D.C. Pine cones!

    • Well, Mrs AL, the entirety of their actions sure leads that way~!
      I’d say we need to start digging up some evergreens,,, or else get a bunch of squirrels in there to eat the nuts~!

    Sometimes the government makes too many decisions. Bad ones.

    • Government Equals Bad Decisions, Kathy,,, that is Normative Democracy. What is forgotten and unrealized is, we are a REPRESENTATIVE Republic,,, ,,, ,,,

    Grouchy where do you get all these really neat quotations?

  4. I see or hear a neat comment, and dig for what else someone might have said. Then, I make like a mole and DIG,,, I have over a hundred pages on file, of quotes from the Great and Famous, and also the completely unknown. Thank You for the compliment, Buck. I’m glad you appreciate the efforts~!
