"I admit, I lost interest in this book for a bit. It had nothing to do with what I had read so far. It was because of a review. And the triggers in the review had nothing to do with the book. Someone felt the need to blabber on about politics in their book review. I'm back to reading it. :-)" Nov 20, 2019 06:26AM

Arthur Conan Doyle
“I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose. A fool takes in all the lumber of every sort that he comes across, so that the knowledge which might be useful to him gets crowded out, or at best is jumbled up with a lot of other things, so that he has a difficulty in laying his hands upon it. Now the skillful workman is very careful indeed as to what he takes into his brain-attic. He will have nothing but the tools which may help him in doing his work, but of these he has a large assortment, and all in the most perfect order. It is a mistake to think that that little room has elastic walls and can distend to any extent. Depend upon it there comes a time when for every addition of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance, therefore, not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.”
Arthur Conan Doyle, A Study in Scarlet

“The guilty are uncomfortable with silence.”
David J. Lieberman. Ph.D.

“Sometimes people who adamantly assert an opinion or view don't even hold it themselves.”
David J. Lieberman. Ph.D.

“Whenever you are questioning a person’s desire for something, consider what he does, not necessarily what he says.”
David J. Lieberman, You Can Read Anyone

“Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons -- that's philosophy.”
