"As a fellow journaler, I’m enjoying Sinkó’s honest reflections on why he writes, and I’m fascinated by the stories that illustrate how individual people experienced the double-speak, cultural dictatorship and justifications of these policies during Stalin’s era." Jul 23, 2018 06:17PM

Isaac Asimov
“The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom.”
Isaac Asimov

Rafe Esquith
“I'd like to give every young teacher some good news. Teaching is a very easy job. Administrators will tell you what to do. You'll be given books and told chapters to assign the children. Veteran teachers will show you the correct way to fill out forms and have your classes line up.

And here's some more good news. If you do all of these things badly, they let you keep doing it. You can go home at three o'clock every day. You get about three months off a year. Teaching is a great gig.

However, if you care about what you're doing, it's one of the toughest jobs around.”
Rafe Esquith, There Are No Shortcuts

Maurice Switzer
“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer, Mrs. Goose, Her Book

“It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.”
Aristotle, Metaphysics
