A Goldmine of Quotes

Greeetings,
I am Greg Bowman and this is my opening day with my first Web Log. I want to start by sharing my latest passion: The works of G.K. Chesterson. A fearless yet lovable writer/artist that has some been ommitted from most public schools. The link is: http://www.chesterton.org/index.html. I especially enjoyed his "quotes" section.

Who am I? I am a Husband,Father, and Patriot. I am currently applying for addmission into a Master of Arts in Teaching program in Oregon. I plan to teach 12-18 year-old Talented And Gifted (TAG) students. I have broad interests and am concerned about the future of America and the world. I believe that most of us fall into one of two catagories:

1.We seek to leave the world a better place than we found it.
2.We seek personal advantage above all else.

The truely wise manage to do Good while doing well.

Grace your way,
Greg Bowman

From Wikipedia:

1. Chesterton was known as the "prince of paradox" because he communicated his conservative, often countercultural, ideas in an off-hand, whimsical prose studded with startling formulations. For example: "Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it."
2. Chesterton's The Everlasting Man contributed to a young atheist named C. S. Lewis being converted to Christianity.

Hello, it's me, Ari,Greg's son. It's kind of random, but I'd like to recommend a web site. It's www.runescape.com, which is an online game played all over the world. Once you're on the homepage select the create new account button and follow the instructions from there. It's really awsome.

Hi there,

Lord Bolingbroke, who was an 18th century political philosopher, said that history is philosophy taught with examples.

The most honest approach to discussions of "News",Politics, or religion is openly admit ones bias rather than fein objectivity.

I found another remarkably relavent quote:


"Religious liberty might be supposed to mean that everybody is free to discuss religion. In practice it means that hardly anybody is allowed to mention it."
G.K.Chesterton Autobiography
