More Than Political

SOURCE:  "We're More Than Political Animals" by Peggy Noonan, WSJ.

"We were not built to be all about politics. Empires rise and fall, nations come and go, but the man who poured your coffee this morning is eternal, because his soul is eternal."

--Peggy Noonan

The Use of Humor

SOURCE:  ...quoted in a eulogy for Andrew Breitbart by James Taranto.


"Humor is essential to a successful tactician, for the most potent weapons known to mankind are satire and ridicule. A sense of humor enables him to maintain his perspective and see himself for what he really is: a bit of dust that burns for a fleeting second. A sense of humor is incompatible with the complete acceptance of any dogma, any religious, political, or economic prescriptions for salvation."--Saul Alinsky, "Rules for Radicals"
