Thought of the Day

Inuriam facilius facias quam feras.


It is easier to do a wrong than to endure one.

(Christians might disagree).


We might be all on board if you stopped thinking in Latin. Sure, Shakespeare was right when he wrote that there is nothing new under the sun, but why not go glib with "Do unto others before they do unto you?"

Or you could still class it up and stay classical and Anglo (by translation) by quoting Proverbs 19:11, which says, "The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression."

Turn the other cheek and save up your vengence for a cold dish best served.
Man, you are all over the place. I guess by quoting these I am endorsing the thought, but I was so ambivalent on this one I pointed out, obliquely, the 'evolution' of this pre-christian thought vis a vis modern catechism, which I believe says just the opposite. Thanks for reading.
