BEST of PONDER on THIS for Monday, January 23rd, 2012 by E. J. Michael, in QUEEN OF THE SUN

“Never believe everything you hear. No matter who says it. Truth can only live in hearts and minds that are free. Dogmatic belief and fanatical adherence to official pronouncements – whether religious or supposedly scientific – have done immeasurable harm throughout history. Keep your own counsel. Study everything that comes to your attention with an open mind. When misconceptions and wrong assumptions are removed, reality shines forth like the sun between the clouds.”

               E. J. Michael, in “Queen of the Sun”

“The surface of the earth is soft and impressible by the feet of men, and so with the paths which the mind travels. How worn and dusty, then, must be the highways of the world, how deep the ruts of tradition and conformity.”
