Quote of the Day

I saw this aphorism on a bumper sticker the other day:
"Fearful people do stupid things."

  1. I love this, Prill. When talking to students, I encourage them to never make decisions based on fear. I try to do the same.

  2. Wow, is this ever true! I think we can all recall a decision or two we did based on fear. I try hard not to do that anymore. It is a practice, but one worth practicing!

  3. Oh, don't get me started. Fear is such a drag. And our culture and even our government plays on our tendency toward fear. It's easy when that instinct is so basic. Read Frank Luntz's "Word Works" if you don't believe me that we are being played.
