A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?

Thoughts for Today – 12 July 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

The following quotations are attributed to Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862): American author, poet and philosopher –

“It takes two to speak the truth: one to speak, and another to hear.”

“It's not what you look at that matters; it's what you see.”

“If you would convince a man that he does wrong, do right. Men will believe what they see.”
