Thought for the day – April 18, 2007

“It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime.”

Thomas Paine, The Age of Reason, Full text: Part I (1793)Part II (1795)

My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to the families, friends, and fellow students and teachers at Virginia Tech during this tragic time.
