Random Quote #24


Moral certainty is always a sign of cultural inferiority.  The more uncivilized the man, the surer he is that he knows precisely what is right and what is wrong.  All human progress, even in morals, has been the work of men who have doubted the current moral values, not of men who have whooped them up and tried to enforce them. The truly civilized man is always skeptical and tolerant, in this field as in all others. His culture is based on “I am not too sure.”

–H. L. Menken

  1. Sounds like the whole trip was very enjoyable! (Mary) I always look forward to hearing all about your trips from Jan, but it sure is nice when you catalog it all Tom, especially with the pics! This looks like a LOT of work! Am glad you took the time to put it on the net for all of us to see!
