On the other hand, it might be interesting only for me.

Let’s try it today.

I’ll give you below a link to an article that I liked very much.

I’d like to know if I should share with you some other items saved in “Reserve”.

Thomas Sowell and his quotes.

Several days ago I reblogged wise quotes of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Today I want to introduce to new followers and guests quotes of Thomas Sowell. You’ll find link to an article about him in the post.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

I just returned home from a nice party and found an email with Thomas Sowell’s quotes. I read all quotes and then went to Google to find out who was Thomas Sowell.

Here is what I found:   THOMAS SOWELL

Then I went back to the email and copied several quotes.

You can see them below and make your own conclusions.

“Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.”

“It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong.”

“One of the consequences of such notions as ‘entitlements’ is that people who have contributed nothing to society feel that society owes them something, apparently just for…

Simple Truths.

I am positive that all of you knew these simple truths. However, reblogging can help if you have bad memory.

Several quotes about wisdom.

I think it’s wise to reblog this post now. We badly need wisdom today.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.  ~Isaac Asimov

It is easier to find a score of men wise enough to discover the truth than to find one intrepid enough, in the face of opposition, to stand up for it.  ~A.A. Hodge

Wisdom consists of the anticipation of consequences.  ~Norman Cousins

Wisdom comes by disillusionment.  ~George Santayana

How would I use a vial of truth serum?

“You’ve come into possession of one vial of truth serum. Who would you give it to (with the person’s consent, of course) — and what questions would you ask?”

When I read this prompt I remembered an old joke.

A man asks a woman: “What can I give you to get your love?”

She answers: “Permanent anesthesia!”

In this case the woman is truthful and she answers the man’s question without hesitation.

Now, if I had a vial of truth serum it would make no sense to give it to anyone who is a truthful person.

So a right decision would be to give it to a liar.

However, can anyone believe that a liar consents to drink truth serum?

No way!

So I’ll put the vial in a vault together with a copy of the prompt!

Hopefully, in three hundred years somebody opens a vault, reads a prompt and asks: “Could it really be that there were liars three hundred years ago?!”

Justice in the life and conduct of the State is possible only as first it resides in the hearts and souls of the citizens.
