Concerning Life, Temptation, High Living, Bad News, Facts ...



Here are a few quotes that I have read recently followed by my comments ...

"Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards." -Soren Kierkegaard
This speaks to me of the value of learning from experience but not allowing
the past to cripple the future.
"What some people mistake for the high cost of living is really the cost of high living." -Doug Larson
Using credit to live beyond our means seems to be a plague in America.
"Nothing travels faster than the speed of light with the possible exception of bad news,
which obeys its own special laws." -Douglas Adams
Sqwalk radio and television seems to have made bad news and gossip a sick epidemic.
"The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it." -Oscar Wilde
I could not disagree with this more. Giving in to temptation will never defeat it.
"Facts are the enemy of truth." -Miguel de Cervantes
Sometimes it seems that way. Reminds me that one can be right and not be righteous.

  1. When you yield to temptation, it's no longer temptation...but SIN. Agree with your comment Bob.
