"If you want to see what a 'contribution' really is, look at Man on the cross. That’s a contribution."
Catherine de Hueck Doherty (an odd mystic Russian émigré who founded Madonna House in the Madawaska Valley) quoted by Richard John Neuhaus in First Things Dec. 2000 p. 67.
"It’s time to paint your butt white and run with the antelope. Stop arguing and do as you’re told."
James Langton’s guide to expressions British leaders might encounter from George W. Bush, in the Sunday Telegraph, quoted in the Ottawa Citizen Dec. 17 2000
"How can you get very far,
If you don’t know Who You Are?
How can you do what you ought,
If you don’t know What You’ve Got?
And if you don’t know Which to Do
Of all the things in front of you,
Then what you’ll have when you are through is just a mess without a clue
Of all the best that can come true if you know What and Which and Who."
Benjamin Hoff The Tao of Pooh
This Saturday at 7 pm I'll be speaking on "Restoring the Alberta Advantage" at the Kitscoty Community Hall in Kitscoty, Alberta. If you're in the area and can make it we'd love to see you there.
