Today's thoughts

From Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius (AD121-180):
"The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority," the emperor said appositely, "but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane."
Prescient fellow, that Marcus or, Heaven forbid, have wing-nuts really been around that long?
"Because a thing seems difficult for you, do not think it impossible for anyone to accomplish."
There's a few emeritus climatologists who should take note of that one.
"As the same fire assumes different shapes When it consumes objects differing in shape, So does the one Self take the shape Of every creature in whom he is present."

?!?!?!?? Now that's just going to far! Friggin' hippy!
