The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long as I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth,
Then took the other as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim;
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh,
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Our life is frittered away by detail. . . . I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumbnail. . . . Simplify, simplify. Instead of three meals a day, if it be necessary eat but one; instead of a hundred dishes, five; and reduce other things in proportion.

undiscovered before me.

Ayn Rand

January 21. 2001
Sen. Richard Lugar, reflecting on his presidential campaign, writes in the Washington Post, "I argued for a ban on assault weapons, for which I see no legitimate social purpose."...Who appointed Senator Lugar the arbiter of what can be sold in the United States? And how many millions of products for sale could be determined to have a "legitimate social purpose"? Cigarettes? Electric toothbrushes? Jolt Cola? Copies of It Takes a Village? Most products have a private, not a social, purpose. The food and clothes that I buy serve my needs, not society's....Senator Lugar's statement is a perfect example of the mentality people develop after too many years in public office. They seem to think that every opinion of theirs should be made law and enforced by the police.
David Boaz, "The Hubris of Politics," Cato Policy Report, 1996

January 20. 2001

Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.
Chinese Proverb

January 12. 2001
As a net is made up of a series of ties, so everything in this world is connected by a series of ties. If anyone thinks that the mesh of a net is an independent, isolated thing, he is mistaken. It is called a net because it is made up of a series of interconnected meshes, and each mesh has its place and responsibility in relation to other meshes.

Never Let Go Of Hope

One day you will see that it all has finally come together.
What you have always wished for has finally come to be.
You will look back and laugh at what has passed
and you will ask yourself...
"How did I get through all of that?"
Just never let go of hope.
Just never quit dreaming.
And never let love depart from your life.
Jancarl Campi

Tea beside the fire
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you
And all your heart might desire!
