THE GREATEST WORKS OF MAN, AND THE LOWEST

My wife was running a blood drive yesterday and so I went to donate. While waiting in line to give blood these thoughts occurred to me:

“I consider Saintliness, Heroism, and Genius the Highest and Greatest Works of Man.

I consider crime, tyranny, and terrorism the lowest and most degenerate works of man.

I consider Truth, Justice, Courage, and Love the Greatest and Most Admirable of all the Virtues.

I consider deceit, injustice, cowardice, and apathy the most corrupting and pathetic of all the vices.”

DECEPTION from POLITICAL CAUSE

Intelligence and Wisdom rely upon clever and well-crafted speech every bit as much as deception does. It’s just that deception usually has a far more eager and willing audience.

It is not that the tongue of the deceiver is so much more skillful than the Speaker of Truth, it is that the ear and mind of the fool is ever more anxious and enthusiastic in consuming the lie.
