What They Said - O

Alan P. Scott - Quotes

and might believe


Avodah Offit

It is difficult to shock me. That is as much a grief and a loss as it is a professional advantage.
--Virtual Love

Patrick O'Leary

What is needed in a cruel and terrifying reality isn't heroic virtue - how often do we get that chance? What's needed is heroic courtesy. A personal response to the world we bitch in and cut people off in, and curse and snub and cheat and gossip in. The world we create. I don't believe it just happens by itself. It's our responsibility. It's up to us. And I believe with all my heart that the bottom line ought to be something smaller than kindness even. Courtesy. Courtesy lubricates and sustains our society, leavens the world from the inside out.
--The Impossible Bird, p. 331 (encountered 2/14/2002)

James Wayne Oxley

Conformity is a test pattern on the TV screen of life.
