Fools names and fools faces are always seen in public places.....Adelaide B DiNardi

She was my Mother and always quoted that to me when I wanted to go "hang out" at the local drug store. I put her as the author but I imagine she got it from elsewhere.

So I was wondering what your quote meant. It's the Order of the Garter Moto
Translations include:
"Shame be to him who thinks evil of it", "Let he who thinks ill there be shamed." and "Evil be to him who evil thinks". You can see it on the coat of arms. What can I say I like research. It's a good quote to.

I also have several.

"A society that tolerates shoddy workmanship from its plumbers because plumbing is a lowly occupation and that does not question its philosophers because philosphy is an exalted profession is in serious trouble. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water." -- Unknown; may not be exact.

"The spirit and the bride say, 'come!' Let all who hear say, 'Come!' Let all who desire it come forward; accept the gift of life-giving water." -- Revelation 22:17

"We shall travel the world over, encountering strange cultures and many customs different from our own. And at the end of our journey, we shall return to this place and know it for the first time." -- Attributed to Pogo; may not be exact wording.

"Gentlemen, let us not make changes. Let us only make improvements." -- Sir Henry Royce.

"No, I don't believe in miracles. I rely on them." -- Me.

"Houston, this is Apollo 13. We have a problem." -- James Lovell, Commander of Apollo 13.

" Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

By Dylan Thomas. Okay it's a whole Poem and I like the whole thing, but that line is the best.

I quite like that one. I wonder how his two small daughters responded. I know what my 4 year old would say; "I know dad."

I am reading this incredible book "The Warmth of Other Suns" by Isabel Wilkerson (who has won a Pulizer Prize in Journalism), which is about the epic story of America's Great Migration from which I lifted the quote..it's based upon a true story and follows 3 stories of African Americans families (one of which is her parents) over 3 decades, that left the South to head North...it struck such a nerve with me

"the migration was a response to an economic and social structure not of their making. they did what humans have done for centuries when life became untenable..what the pilgrims did under the tyranny of British rule..what the Irish did when there was nothing to eat, what the Europeans Jews did during the spread of Nazism..they did what human beings looking for freedom, throughout history have often done..they left..

in light of the debaate that is going on in our Country today, this book has even greater interest for me..have not put it down since I purchased it last week
to your question, it did not give a response from his daughters

I have two favorites by Sinclair Lewis; a writer that I somewhat enjoy reading his works even though our political leanings couldn't be further apart.

"There are two insults no human being will endure: that he has no sense of humor, and that he has never known trouble."

"Intellectually I know that America is no better than any other country; emotionally I know she is better than every other country."
