QOTD

"The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. What is called resignation is confirmed desperation. From the desperate city you go into the desperate country, and have to console yourself with the bravery of minks and muskrats. A stereotyped but unconscious despair is concealed even under what are called the games and amusements of mankind. There is no play in them, for this comes after work. But it is a characteristic of wisdom not to do desperate things." -Henry David Thoreau

Quote of the Day

I have an ever increasing respect for Matt Damon. To me, he seems less like an actor pretending to be a political activist and more like a political activist who happens to be an actor. He definitely has the mental capacities to back it up where other actors have just used their fame as a platform without the brains required to support their stance.

…change comes from the bottom up; always has, always will. “That goes for today, too. We can’t wait for Barack Obama to just fix things. We have to be in his ear. That’s our job as engaged citizens. –Matt Damon [Source, OpenNews.com]
