“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.”
– Kalu Ndukwa Kalu

 “Imagine a herd of turtles chasing a flock of bird dogs.”
– Colby Beams

The greatest deterent to Truth: the obsession for Proof.
The next greatest deterent to Truth: the obsession for Rules.

Q: What can be learned when an issue generates only two conflicting opinions?
A: Only that someone has remained silent?

The level of respect due for the beliefs of others must be based not on what they believe but on their ability to gather reliable information.

Popular opinion requires no truth.

Those who join sides miss the point.

Friendship does not come easily to Free Thinkers.

The key to Freedom is Courage; the Padlock is pressure to conform.

If I could persuade others to think as I do, I would encourage them to seek answers to every question that enters their minds and to then question the answers.

I was asked what I revered above all else. “Freedom”, I replied.
“And how do you feel about Fairness?”
“What a silly question.” I thought. “In order to be treated Fairly, one must first lose their Freedom.”

I did not reply.
