Glad I Said That!

From A Thousand and One Things to Think About

In absolute value, integrity ranks above freedom.


We identify ourselves not only by what we teach, but by how we teach it.


Improvement does not imply rejection of what has preceded it.


Bosses who think it is okay to intimidate their subordinates have no right to be indignant when their behavior becomes public knowledge.


It’s unfair to demand specifics and then complain if the conversation gets personal.


"Another way to see it" is enriching, but not always convincing.


God cannot help knowing what he knows.


What is true may not be easier than what is false, 
but it's always more possible.


God loves fully, not blindly.


Power alone no more justifies the acts of God than it justifies ours.


The church is a home, not a hiding place.


Heaven includes earth as eternity includes time.


The truth is true, no matter who said it or when.


Apart from justice, mercy has no definition.


Manipulators give a little in order to gain a lot.


You do not become who you are until you do what you are supposed to do.


Responsibility is privilege enough and guidance is miracle enough.


Though the world is good in itself, it is not an end in itself.


Laughing at drunkenness is like laughing at a broken arm.


Having stuff doesn’t spoil you, but your attitude toward it might.


What sounds like the ring of truth might be a siren’s song.


It is impossible to include partisan politics and political ethics 
in the same conversation.


Never ask an emergency room nurse, especially during a meal,
how her last shift went.
