It seems, in deleting my post last week, I created a "Not Found" link in many sites that connect to "A Robert Brault Reader." Rather than have that sit around for six weeks, I thought I'd post a new current link. Some of the following are from the old post; some new. My thanks to Sue and Ken for their comments on my deleted post; I just felt that a few of the thoughts were below standard. Cheers to all.
For a parent, there is no scientific theory of the universe that sufficiently answers the question: "Who entrusted to me this child?"
"Now and then it's good to list all the things you regularly do for which there used to be a good reason."
"There comes a morning in life when you wake up a new person; that is to say, you wake up the same person but you realize it's nobody's fault but your own."
"In the end it comes down to whether those who are willing to die for liberty are all dead."
Perhaps there should be one day a week when you tackle your "Things I Gotta Undo" list.
"If I have a regret in life, it's that I lost my childhood view of the world only because I wasn't smart enough at the time to argue for my position."
Occasionally ask, "What do I believe that gives me no advantage over anyone?"
"In your own eyes, do justice, and let others determine if it be charity."
"To deny any truth is to begin a chain of denial that must eventually deny every truth there is."
"Perhaps God made the elephant to prove that a vegetarian can rule its habitat."
" If you will focus not on what you are but on what you might become, the first thing you will find yourself doing is changing your politics."
