Directly in the face of today's ubiquitous mindless blather and other contemptuously supercilious twaddle, let's take some time to remember the importance with which one used to address their thoughts. People paid heed to the use of their words and we should live in their likeness. When most of us are intellectually satisfied by mere newsprint and eloquent online periodicals, I will strive to provide a lagniappe of historical quotes. I have started here with the author of the Declaration of Independence, Thomas Jefferson, as his prose symbolize a brass ring of meaning, eloquence and incisiveness.
"Determine never to be idle. No person will have occasion to complain of the want of time, who never loses any. It is wonderful how much may be done, if we are always doing. And that you may be always doing good, my dear, is the ardent prayer of yours affectionately." Thomas Jefferson, letter to Martha Jefferson, May 5, 1787
I will endeavor to be less idle and more frequent with my posts.
