          "Words That Inspire, Provoke and Entertain"
                    Tuesday Jan. 22, 2008
-----------------------------------------------------------

Greetings fellow quote lovers:

This issue was inspired by my son, who I carted back 
to college yesterday. He plans on rooming with a very 
cynical kid next year and I wanted to share my viewpoint 
on cynicism. 

I hope you enjoy!

Best,

JA

           JA's Video Pick of The Week

             Deadliest Hornet Alive 

This hornet sprays a bee hive with some of the 
acid/pheromone and brings in reinforcements. They descend 
upon the beehive like an unholy plague of hell-born death 
engines. 30 wasps against 30,000 bees and the 30,000 bees 
do not stand a chance.

            *---- Quotes For The Week ----*

  It is not OK in this culture to talk to friends about
  causes you believe in, much less to ask them to join
  in. It's OK to blast perfect strangers with crass
  messages every hour of the day, but it's a tinge
  embarrassing, it brings up some shyness, it seems an
  intrusion, it risks rejection to share real heartfelt
  commitments. It's easier to share our cynicism with
  strangers than our dreams with friends.
  --Dana Meadows

In the end, ... that's what this election is about. Do we 
participate in a politics of cynicism, or do we participate 
in a politics of hope?
--Barack Obama 

[BTW, I am not an Obama supporter, but I did love this 
quote.] 

------------------------------------------------------------

 In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism and
 skepticism and humbug and we shall want to live
 more musically.
 --Vincent van Gogh

                 **--- MYSTERY QUOTE ---**

  Don't be a cynic and disconsolate preacher. Don't bewail

             *---- More Quotes for the Week ----*

Cynics build no bridges; they make no discoveries; no
gaps are spanned by them. Cynics may pride themselves
in being realistic in their approach, but progress and
the onward march of ... civilization demand an inspiration 
and motivation that cynicism never affords. If we want
progress we must take the forward look.
--Paul L. McKay

I think we too often make choices based on the safety of
cynicism, and what we're lead to is a life not fully lived. 
Cynicism is fear, and it's worse than fear - it's active 
disengagement.
--Ken Burns (1896 - 1996) 

------------------------------------------------------------

  If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love
  affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into
  business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense.
  You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your
  wings on the way down.
  --Ray Bradbury 

 -----------------------------------------------------------

  A cynic is not merely one who reads bitter lessons from
  the past; he is the one who is prematurely disappointed
  in the future.
  --Sydney J. Harris (1917 - 1986)
