I own that I cannot see as plainly as others do, and as I should wish to do, evidence of design and beneficence on all sides of us. There seems to me too much misery in the world. I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created the Ichneumonidae with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars, or that a cat should play with mice.

Ė Charles Darwin, letter to Asa Gray, May 22, 1860

Al Gore was the poster child for global warming until the climate deniers attacked him like a pack of rabid wild dogs.

As human beings, we are vulnerable to confusing the unprecedented with the improbable. In our everyday experience, if something has never happened before, we are generally safe in assuming it is not going to happen in the future, but the exceptions can kill you and climate change is one of those exceptions.

Al Gore

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control. ~ Elizabeth Gilbert

The supreme courage of life is the courage of the soul. It is living, day by day, sincerely, steadfastly, serenely,-despite all opinions, all obstacles, all opposition. It means the wine of inspiration comes from the crushed grapes of our sorrows. This courage makes the simplest life, great; it makes the greatest life-sublime. It means the royal dignity of fine individual living. ~ William Jordan

I should really stop the banter with bill on this thread about Al Gore. Knowing that all of his jet fumes, luxurious cars, and his $1,359 a month (holy crap) electric bill for his 10,000 square ft. mansion has done more harm to our environment than I could in 10 lifetimes. But I still gotta give him points for inventing the internet.

~ MAYA ANGELOU~

If you are going down a road and don't like what's in front of you and look behind you and don't like what you see, get off the road. Create a new path!

I deal very little in facts, facts can obscure the truth, you can tell so many facts you never get to the truth, you can tell the places where, the people who, the times when, the reasons why, and never get to the human truth which is love and pain and loss and triumph.

TOUCHED BY AN ANGEL
We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free

You canít let people scare you. You canít go your whole life trying to please everyone else. You canít go through life worried about everyone else is going to think. Whether itís your hair, clothes, what you have to say, how you feel, what you believe and what you have. You canít let the judgement of others stop you from being you. Because, if you do, youíre no longer you. Youíre someone everyone else wants you to be. ~ Unknown
