Quote for today…

“…when you don’t try to impose, you only try to go with the flow, Bingo! you got it…”*
– Chef Jose Andrès

*please note this sounds even better when Jose says it with his own accent and inflection.

Quote for Today:

“…political language has to consist largely of euphemism., question-begging and sheer cloudy vagueness. Defenseless villages are bombarded from the air, the inhabitants driven out into the countryside, the cattle machine-gunned, the huts set on fire with incendiary bullets: this is called pacification. Millions of peasants are robbed of their farms and sent trudging along the roads with no more than they can carry: this is called transfer of population or rectification of frontiers. People are imprisoned for years without trial, or shot in the back of the neck or sent to die of scurvy in Arctic lumber camps: this is called elimination of unreliable elements.”

– George Orwell,“Politics and the English Language.”  1946

Quote for Today:

“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”

– Coco Chanel

Quote for Today:

Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

-Benjamin Franklin

Quote for today:

“Don’t spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door.”

– Coco Chanel
