Some relevant quotes from my sig files:"Merely having an open mind is nothing. The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid." G. K. Chesterton"The world is full of people who have never, since childhood, met an open doorway with an open mind." E. B. White"The degree of one's emotion varies inversely with one's knowledge of the facts--the less you know the hotter you get." Bertrand Russell"If there is anything more dangerous to the life of the mind than having no independent commitment to ideas, it is having an excess of commitment to some special and constricting idea." Richard Hofstadter, American historianThese are relevant to your John Brown post as well.I'm taking a break from packing. Sorry you aren't coming!
Great collection Roni!As to the last, it was either the class reunion or my daughter's wedding. It was close, of course, but you know how daughter's set their hearts on these things! :)
