Quote Of The Day — June 24, 2015

.
In any country, regardless of what its laws say, wherever people act upon the idea that the disadvantage of one man is the good of another, there slavery exists. Wherever, in any country the whole people feel that the happiness of all is dependent upon the happiness of the weakest, there freedom exists.

Booker T. Washington, (April 5, 1856 – November 14, 1915)

An Address on Abraham Lincoln before the Republican Club of New York City (12 February 1909)

    Excellent quote Grouchy. Glad you’re back.

    If Washington were alive today he of course would need to exclude the left. They are never happy. Herds of unicorns could be roaming, rainbows on every horizon, and yet the left would find something to whine about.

    • Grouchy says:

      Thank You, Hardnox, and it’s good to be back.
      When a philosophy of action is built on the shifting moral and ethical premises of the equivalent of quicksand, there is no absolute goal to be achieved. No wonder they will never be happy~!

    Welcome back, brother. Booker T. summed up today’s left lo those many moons ago.

    • Grouchy says:

      Thank You, Clyde – It’s good to be back. Isn’t it amazing, how those who have been put down in so many ways were so much wiser than the intelligentsia of today? Maybe it’s because they examined their intangible (and tangible) environment, and learned the lessons it had to teach???

    Good quote. Truth is ageless, which is why it can be called truth. Hey Grouchy, so glad you are better.

    • Grouchy says:

      Oh, and a hearty “AMEN~!” to that, Uriel~! And thank you for your well wishes. There’s a long way to go, yet, but a long way come already!~!

  4. Welcome back, Grouchy. Glad you are doing better, :).

    You picked a good quote to return on Grouchy. So glad you are back and still full of grouch, my friend. The conservative world needs you!

    • Grouchy says:

      Thanks, Garnet. It’s good to be back. And it may be that the needs of one for the other are equally mutual~! 😀

      • Uriel says:

        Ever notice how lefties are like a crowd of magpies? Cawing to make noise but rarely listening to others. I know most think themselves above common sense and far above other humans. But lack of oxygen in that strata usually creates brain trauma too.

        • Grouchy says:

          Indeed, Uriel. Hypoxia is a very deadly disease, and can be very insidious in its manifestations. Very good point~!~! I hadn’t even considered that aspect,,,
