Thoughts For the Week

From the wisdom of Mark Twain, some quotes to ponder:

•Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned.

•Loyalty to petrified opinion never yet broke a chain or freed a human soul.

•Religion consists in a set of things which the average man thinks he believes and wishes he was certain of.

•In religion and politics, people's beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination.

•When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

•The worst loneliness is not to be comfortable with yourself.

•Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do then by the ones you did. So, throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
