What makes him think a middle aged actor [Clint Eastwood], who\'s played
with a chimp, could have a future in politics?
We must reject the idea that every time a law\'s broken, society is guilty
rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept
that each individual is accountable for his actions.
Those parts of thee that the world\'s eye doth view
Want nothing that the thought of hearts can mend;
All tongues--the voice of souls--give thee that due,
Uttering bare truth, even so as foes commend.
Thy outward thus with outward praise is crown\'d;
But those same tongues, that give thee so thine own,
In other accents do this praise confound
By seeing farther than the eye hath shown.
They look into the beauty of thy mind,
And that in guess they measure by thy deeds;
Then--churls--their thoughts, although their eyes were kind,
To thy fair flower add the rank smell of weeds:
But why thy odour matcheth not thy show,
The soil is this, that thou dost common grow.
Insight: St. Augustine Quotes
People travel to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast
compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars; and they pass by themselves without wondering.
