Aesop

This indicates that further reductions in ozone pollution would benefit public health, even in areas that meet regulatory requirements.

In much of the West, the well educated have been taught to believe that they can know nothing and that they can draw no independent conclusions about truth, unless they cite a study and \"experts\" have affirmed it. \"Studies show\" is to the modern secular college graduate what \"Scripture says\" is to the religious fundamentalist.

Blaming has no positive effect at all, nor does trying to persuade using reason and argument. That is my experience. If you understand, and you show that you understand, you can love, and the situation will change.

Ven. Thich Nhat Hanh

Difficulties show men what they are. In case of any difficulty remember that God has pitted you against a rough antagonist that you may be a conqueror, and this cannot be without toil.
