Quote for Today: John Kramer

The pursuit of goodness leads to greatness, but the pursuit of greatness, whether by a man or a nation, leads to ruin… Good men build; great men destroy. They destroy because they try to control something other than themselves and that always leads to destruction. ― John Kramer, Blythe Public Domain Image via MaxPixel

Quote for Today: Roger Rosenblatt

  Why, for example, do the great writers use anticipation instead of surprise? Because surprise is merely an instrument of the unusual, whereas anticipation of a consequence enlarges our understanding of what is happening. --Roger Rosenblatt, "How to Write Great", New York Times, July 29, 2012 Image: Around the corner © Bruce Krasting with CCLicense
