Quote du jour

Certitude is not the test of certainty. We have been cocksure of many things that were not so.
-Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.


  1. Interesting man, Holmes. Highly educated, intelligent and pithy, but he did much to break down the constitutional bulwark, and the progressive hordes stormed through the breach.

    When you eschew natural rights as Holmes did, you are left with whatever the state decided you deserve.

  2. Holmes quote was similar to one of my favorites about logic being the means to go wrong with certainty!
