Thought for Today – 28 September 2008

“ ‘Thou shalt not kill’ does not apply to one’s own kind only, but to all living beings; and this Commandment was inscribed in the human breast long before it was proclaimed from Sinai.”
– Count Leo Tolstoy (1828–1910), Russian novelist, essayist, and moral philosopher

The above words of wisdom bring to mind another one of my favorite quotations – also Tolstoy’s: “As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.”

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
