The Most Notable Profession

 

"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,  Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." 

--Shakespeare--Hamlet (1.5. 166-7), Hamlet to Horatio

"A quest for self respect is proof of its lack." --Ayn Rand

 

“Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this: that love…true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. It doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things because those are the things worth believing in.”
