Ladies and gentlemen. If we cannot debate that which troubles our society, and more importantly troubles our government, then we cannot, in all honesty, call ourselves a democracy. If we cannot question our leaders as they embark on what has been called an illegal military action, an action publicly opposed by the United States government and the countries of the United Nations Security Council; if we cannot reasonably and intelligently query about the rightness of an action that appears at heart to be deceitful, then we are not a free—

For some reason, the most vocal Christians among us never mention the Beatitudes (Matthew 5). But, often with tears in their eyes, they demand that the Ten Commandments be posted in public buildings.

nostalgic-symphonies:

Jo Stafford — It Isn’t A Dream Anymore

At last I can say what I feel
And know what I’m saying is real
Your summer, your spring
And you’re everything I adore

You’re all the sweet music I’ve ever heard
Please listen and don’t say a word
You’re all that I dream
…But it isn’t a dream anymore

"Reckless, impulsive, immoral — how come there’s such a difference between the way you teach and the way you live? Why are you so bold in argument and talking, but when it comes to the point, when it’s something that’s actually happening — I mean, now you’re so fucking careful!"

"He does not despise real woods because he has read of enchanted woods: the reading makes all real woods a little enchanted. This is a special kind of longing. The boy reading the fairy-tale desires and is happy in the very fact of desiring."
