Words to Ponder

The most important thing about a man is what he believes in the depth of his being. This is the thing that makes him what he is, the thing that organizes him and feeds him; the thing that keeps him going in the face of untoward circumstances; the thing that gives him resistance and drive.

Dinner fortune worth sharing

My fortune cookie tonight:
"It's better to be approximately right than precisely wrong."

Maybe so.

Michael Crichton on Scientists

Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you're being had.

Mother's Day

It is the loss,
and the memories …

and now our mother …

they have passed the torch.

No longer the children,
we are the top rung …

And they watch over us
through our eyes
and through our hearts.
