Words finally overtake sticks and stones

by

Quote of the day from this post on Time’s Swampland blog:

Of course, as I’ve heard somewhere before, words do matter. Not just because eloquence can raise us up, but because in raising us up, eloquence allows us to face difficult subjects with renewed humility and compassion.

And that gives me an excuse to do one of my favorite blogging activities.  Quote the West Wing!

“Oratory should raise your heart rate. Oratory should blow the doors off the place. We should be talking about not being satisfied with past solutions. We should be talking about a permanent revolutions.”

Sigh.
