"Story Lady"

Friday, August 21, 2009

Speak properly, and in as few words as you can, but always plainly; for the end of speech is not ostentation, but to be understood.
-- William Penn


An invasion of armies can be resisted, but not an idea whose time has come.*
-- Victor Hugo, 'Histoire d'un crime,' 1852


*I generally stay away from any kind of "war" philosophy - I find I am not able to understand what the heck is being communicated - but, this specific quote makes sense to me . . .

Happiest Day to You!
