       Only Words Endure   



        If fifty million people say a foolish thing,
                     it is still a foolish thing. 
                         (Anatole France)

    You can't always judge by appearances:  
    the early bird may have been up all night.

  The loser tries to change the wind;
the winner changes the sail.

The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in time of great moral crisis,
maintain their neutrality.
