Jewels for the Week 01/12/14 to 01/18/14:

“Let’s do something unexpected: let’s stop and think.” ~ Thomas Sowell (Economist) in his recent WT article, DeBlasio’s Spiel Devoid of ANY Contaminating Speck of Truth.

“Identify the dominant philosophy of a society and you can predict it’s future.” ~ Ayn Rand

“Self-control is strength. Right-thought is mastery. Calmness is power…” ~ James Allen

“What, incidentally, do you think integrity is? The ability not to pick a watch out of your neighbor’s pocket??? No, it’s not as easy as that…integrity is the ability to stand by an idea, but that presupposes the ability to think, and thinking is something one doesn’t borrow or pawn.” ~ Ayn Rand, pg. 321 of The Fountainhead (Pt. II, Ch. X of the Bobs-Merrill, 25th Anniversary edition.)

“One needs solitude and quiet to think. The cacophony of modern culture is designed to make that impossible…” ~ Chris Hedges

“The wise move patiently…” ~ Nas
