I often enjoy travel memoirs, especially those that have to do with long-distance hiking, motorcycle travel, and cross-cultural travel...but only if they are well-written. Quite frankly, this one both bored me, and made me wonder at the immaturity an ...more

Grandma Gatewood’s Walk is a wonderful biography by Pulitzer prize nominee Ben Montgomery. Through most of the book, he artfully entwines a description of her first thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail with excerpts from her earlier life. Some of those ...more

“If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist.”
Joseph Sobran

Thomas Paine
“I love the man that can smile in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death.”
Thomas Paine

John W. Gardner
“An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.”
John W. Gardner, Excellence

Noah Webster
“In selecting men for office, let principle be your guide. Regard not the particular sect or denomination of the candidate - look to his character.”
Noah Webster

Thomas Jefferson
“...it is not to be understood that I am with him [Jesus] in all his doctrines. I am a Materialist, he takes the side of spiritualism; he preaches the efficacy of repentance toward forgiveness of sin. I require a counterpoise of good works to redeem it... Among the sayings & discourses imputed to him by his biographers, I find many passages of fine imagination, correct morality, and of the most lovely benevolence: and others again of so much ignorance, so much absurdity, so much untruth, charlatanism, and imposture, as to pronounce it impossible that such contradictions should have proceeded from the same being.

[Letter to William Short, 13 April 1820]”
Thomas Jefferson, Letters of Thomas Jefferson
