A man does not yield when the mere universe has turned against him; he yields when his own heart has turned against him. We surrender, not when circumstances are miserable, but when we are miserable. --G.K. Chesterton
If I'm not constantly learning new things I question whether I'm really alive. To be otherwise is death, it is decay, it is complaceny, it is absence of vitality. Life is in constant motion. Stillness belongs to that which is dead.
"The truth is that the overwhelming mass of the 'people' is Conservative at heart, but it is inarticulate, and allows a noisy and utterly unrepresentative minority to usurp its powers of speech." -Nesta Webster
