The Eclectic One

…Because labels are a poor substitute for thinking

Quote of the Day

Posted by Bill Nance on September 3, 2008

“We are lovers of beauty without extravagance, and lovers of wisdom without unmanliness. Wealth to us is not mere material for vainglory but an opportunity for achievment; and poverty we think it no disgrace to acknowledge but a real degredation to make no effort to overcome. -Thucydides, Funeral Oration of Perecles
