Quotes of the Week

Another weekly offering will now be a few quotes of the week with questions. Here's week 1.

Quote 1:
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
In light of the elecion, I thought this was appropriate. An American has the right to vote, and even if you don't agree with their choices, they still have the right to choose them. Therefore, you must entertain them. Any thoughts?

Quote 2:
Good judgment comes from experience, and often experience comes from bad judgment.
Rita Mae Brown

As a world, we are human, we experience mistakes, but then, we should and usually do learn from them, and come out better. Any judgement calls or mistakes you've made that you have learned from and have come out the better?

Quote 1 and 2 are from Brainy Quote.

Quote 3:
Thanks to the brave men and women, and all those who work to keep us safe, there has not been another attack on our soil in 2,557 days.
President George Bush

Thursday was the 7th anniversary of 9/11. Do you think the war on terror will be an issue after the elections? Did your school or workplace do anything to memorialize 9/11?
