THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 11-27-08)

It’s turkey week and it’s important we have at least one good Thanksgiving quote in our Monday bar quotes.  But the whole slew of quotes here are all pretty darn good.  And that’s no turkey, turkey!

THIS WEEK’S BAR QUOTES – (from 11-27-08)

Ah! on Thanksgiving day, when from East and from West,
From North and South, come the pilgrim and guest,
When the gray-haired New Englander sees round his board
The old broken links of affection restored,
When the care-wearied man seeks his mother once more,
And the worn matron smiles where the girl smiled before.
What moistens the lips and what brightens the eye?
What calls back the past, like the rich pumpking pie?
–John Greenleaf Whittier, “The Pumpkin”

Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.

Asking a working writer what he thinks about critics is like asking a lamp-post how it feels about dogs.

but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.

–Thomas Jefferson

Never leave that till tomorrow which you can do today.

People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in,
their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within.
–Elizabeth Kubler-Ross
 
Respect human talent, respond to genius, recognize reality, admire truth and beauty, realize the meaning of the rare flower Reason.
