Quote Of The Day — March 16, 2015

.
The reserve of modern assertions is sometimes pushed to extremes, in which the fear of being contradicted leads the writer to strip himself of almost all sense and meaning.

Sir Winston Churchill,  (30 November 1874 – 24 January 1965)

    PC at its finest. Nice quote and good definition of our demolibs,

    • Grouchy says:

      Beautifully stated, Uriel. And I completely agree. It does fit all areas of intellectual endeavor, as well as emotional and spiritual thought.

    Churchill had the left pegged well, GF. Good find.

    • Grouchy says:

      It never ceases to amaze me, Clyde, how the essentials of human nature have changed so little down through the halls of time. I guess that’s a sad commentary on the process and progress of human development, aye?
      Glad you stopped in, My Friend. And indeed, Churchill had the moochers pegged to a “T”.

    Sounds like the test of true leadership, as no leader worth his salt fears being contradicted. If you are in the right, contradiction is easily refuted and dismissed. If you are wrong, a good leader sees contradiction as a valuable tool to steer him in the right direction. Only those with impure motives (i.e. the leftists) fear contradiction, because contradiction has a way of exposing the truth.

      Comment of the Thread, CW,,, and how so VERY true you are~!
      Truth has NOTHING to hide, nor be ashamed of. Deceit cannot stand the light of day~!
