Random Quote #7

Pardon him, Theodotus; he is a barbarian, and thinks that the customs of his tribe and island are the laws of nature.
— George Bernard Shaw; Caesar and Cleopatra

This should be taken to heart by everyone, no matter what they do or where they come from. I know far too many people who simply can’t imagine anything but their way. Sometimes, when I catch myself thinking this way, I have to step back and consider if I am acting like a barbarian.

  1. Thanks for posting the quote. I stole it from your blog and used it in a reply to an anti-Obama message that was allegedly from a Billy Graham associate. It was exactly what needed to be said and much more eloquent than anything I could come up with.
