There are two things which cannot be attacked in front: ignorance and narrow-mindedness. They can only be shaken by the simple development of the contrary qualities. They will not bear discussion.

-Thomas Sowell

"We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality."
-Ayn Rand-

"Parents wonder why the streams are bitter, when they themselves have poisoned the fountain."
-John Locke-

For me, you don’t ever want to be defined by the color of your skin. You want to be defined by your work ethic, the person that you are, your character, your personality. That’s what I’ve tried to go out and do. I am an African-American in America. That will never change. But I don’t have to be defined by that.
-Robert Griffin III-

"Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest."
