Bessie-isms and Quotable for February 19, 2016


*People seem to either hate their past, and wish to flee it, or love it so much, that they prefer it to the present. Both are sadly foolish. The past is merely a historical record, a log of where you’ve been, on your way to a future you are creating by your choices this instant!

*Patriotism that consists of nothing more than flag waving and cheering as others march off to do the hard work is  both false patriotism, and very common.
