Quote of the Day:

A Parable while wandering a deserted beach: At dawn, stagnant in my work, I saw a man in the distance bending and throwing as he walked the endless stretch toward me. As he came near, I could see that he was throwing starfish, abandoned on the sand by the tide, back into the sea. When he was close enough I asked him why he was working so hard at this strange task. He said that the sun would dry the starfish and they would die. I said to him that I thought he was foolish. there were thousands of starfish on miles and miles of beach. One man alone could never make a difference. He smiled as he picked up the next starfish. Hurling it far into the sea he said, “It makes a difference for this one.”

I abandoned my writing and spent the morning throwing starfish.

Isaac Asimov

  1. Does Mars have former Oceans???
    Perhaps we should ask Issac Asimov (if we could) since he is throwing the starfish. I have always thought that Mars had Oceans at one time. I even wrote about it in one of my books and articles. Humans had to come from some place…why not Mars…We may even go to Venus in our next hop before ending this experiment.


  2. Quote of the Day
    What an amazing quote. Thanks for sharing.


    “A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.”
    Albert Schweitzer

        1. in reference to the article “
          in reference to the article “They’re gathering evidence that humans lived on the North American continent before the last ice age, far earlier than previously believed”
          We have covered this planet before, many times before.

          the quote of the day (from my favorite author), reminds me of another quote.

          dd It is the greatest of all mistakes to do nothing because you can do only a little. Do what you can.

          1. gathering evidence
            Hi D^2,

            It takes courage for an archaeologist to dig beyond the “forbidden levels” to discover evidence that contradicts those that control the grants and the positions at universities. Fortunately, a few have such courage.


        2. It was me…dear soul

          As you may or may not discern, I am extremely well-read in ancient manuscripts. So, Indeed…I have and there are many, many more to be found even in Hall’s grand book. You may seek for yourself.

          1. Oscars Opinion
            Oscar, your abilities as a guru are no doubt exceeded by your own opinion of them. Get of your high horse about yourself and learn some humility.

          2. Point well taken but should it be of or off.
            Thanks Mom.

            I am no guru…just an old West Texas boy…just plodding along…at least tri’an.
