Rage is a dangerous emotion, not simply because it can be destructive but because it can be so easily satisfied with cheap targets.  Like my friend who picks fights online, I’m a veteran.  I know people who have been injured or killed overseas.  I’ve seen the damage bombs wreak on the bodies of innocent civilians.  And, yes, it fills me with rage.  But if that rage is to mean anything, it means I cannot distract myself with the illusion of adjudicating past wrongs with artfully phrased put-downs.  In a world where we are still at war, the most important question is, What do we do now?  There the moral certainty of my rage must be met with humility about the limits of my knowledge.

The person who says he knows what he thinks but cannot express it usually does not know what he thinks.
  —   Mortimer Alder
[“W” may have mispronounced words, but at least his sentences more or less made sense.  #45 (#TheIdiotPresident) makes up words, mispronounces words and, even when he uses the corrects word(s), the sentences and paragraph don’t make sense.  And, he is not deflecting or distracting or lying (like Kellyanne Conway); he is just stringing random words together in phrases which almost (but not quite) make sense.  They make even less sense when you try to read them (the words) from print (transcript) format.  —  KMAB]

Training is not knowledge and knowledge is not strength.  But combine knowledge with training and one will get strength.
   —  The Book Of Sinanju
[I have a large number of “quotes” in my journal which are simply attributed to “House of Sinanju”.  I am sure they are all (each) from one of the 70+ books in “The Destroyer” series (co-written by Richard Sapir & Warren Murphy) which I was reading back in the 1970’s.  I didn’t record which book each quote came out of at the time I found them.  So, I’m just leaving them as recorded.  If anyone finds the book with the quote in it, and lets me know, I will be happy to attribute the quote accurately.  —  KMAB]
