Stupidity cannot be cured with money, or through education, or by legislation. Stupidity is not a sin, the victim can’t help being stupid. But stupidity is the only universal capital crime: the sentence is death, there is no appeal, and execution is carried out automatically and without pity. Robert A. Heinlein, Time Enough For Love (Thanks to SuzieQ)

Don't just do something, stand there! -- me

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. -- Einstein


From a recent post by Mad Dawg

In our weltanschauung it is like my truth paper. The Logos is, so to speak the seat of reason in God, and the mind is the seat of the same reason in man. So when the Scriptures say give all your love to God and love your neighbor, a wonderful thing is being said. Anyone who thinks that some simple and self-evident point can be concluded from the coincidence of those two verses, offered, as it is, by the Logos himself ... well it's like going to a fireworks show and attending only to the sounds.

From where and by what means comes the Love wherewith we are to love God and our neighbor? Can any love live in us unless we live in Love? And if love lives in us, can we not claim some kinship to her in whom love was conceived,and by whom it was sheltered, housed, nursed, tended, and cherished?

We also are commanded and long to be bearers of love. We seek love anxiously, we long to tend its hurts, to see it grow and live and be true. When love seems dead, we mourn, even as we trust love to be victorious and ever new.

How does Love come to us? We find some stirring in us, but know it came from somewhere else. We sleep, though our heart is awake. We hear knocking, but when we rise the only love we are sure of is in our own hearts, though we know love knocked. It is in us, but not from us. We are from it and we long to return.

Finally we yearn for the love that is in us and that goes out from us. Weeping, we seek it, finding love we fall to our knees. In loves wind and fire we once again are made tabernacles and arks for love. Yes indeed, give all love to God; give what love remains when all is given to one another. Love is in us, that we may love our neighbor. We are in love, so all love is not ours but his. Of his own do we give.

Every Christian vocation is simply a variant on laying down your life, over and over, for people that you really wish you didn't have to, because it's not like they'd do it for you. Yeah, it hurts ... but it's the only way.
