The Daily Owl 11-19-2013

DailyOwl_thumb5_thumb_thumb_thumb_th[2]_thumb_thumb   The Daily Owl says, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”  (C.S. Lewis)

The Daily Owl 10-25-2013

DailyOwl_thumb5_thumb_thumb_thumb_th[2]_thumb_thumb   The Daily Owl says, “Provided we have the right type of rigor, we need randomness, mess, adventures, uncertainty, self-discovery, near-traumatic episodes--all these things that make life worth living--compared to the structured, ineffective life of an empty-suit CEO with a pre-set schedule and an alarm clock.” (Nassim Nicholas Taleb )

The Daily Owl 10-9-2013

DailyOwl_thumb5_thumb_thumb_thumb_th[2]_thumb_thumb   The Daily Owl says, “We do not regard our actions and our character merely as fortunate or unfortunate episodes—though they may also be that. We cannot simply take an external evaluative view of ourselves—of what we most essentially are and what we do. Those acts remain ours and we remain ourselves, despite the persuasiveness of the reasons that seem to argue us out of existence.” (Thomas Nagel)

The Daily (Guest) Owl 9-29-2013

GuestOwl   The Guest Owl says, "I could care less about magicians in general. What I hate is people who exploit other people. . . . By taking advantage of their weaknesses. Their need to believe in something that's unexplainable in order to make their lives more bearable. " (Dylan Rhodes from the film, Now You See Me)
