A Timely Quote For America

By
Real Estate Agent with Lisa Von Domek Team TX License #0552989

Just one more day before our great nation transitions to our new President,
Donald J. Trump.  I am saddened by the turmoil our people are in and the divisiveness that is causing such joy for some and such anger in others.
We are, and must be, the United States of America.  This quote may help
with the healing that must occur for us all to come together:

 

“At this point I reveal myself in my true colours, as a stick-in-the-mud. I hold a number of beliefs that have been repudiated by the liveliest intellects of our time. I believe that order is better than chaos, creation better than destruction. I prefer gentleness to violence, forgiveness to vendetta. On the whole I think that knowledge is preferable to ignorance, and I am sure that human sympathy is more valuable than ideology. I believe that in spite of the recent triumphs of science, men haven't changed much in the last two thousand years; and in consequence we must still try to learn from history. History is ourselves. I also hold one or two beliefs that are more difficult to put shortly. For example, I believe in courtesy, the ritual by which we avoid hurting other people's feelings by satisfying our own egos. And I think we should remember that we are part of a great whole. All living things are our brothers and sisters. Above all, I believe in the God-given genius of certain individuals, and I value a society that makes their existence possible.”
― Kenneth Clark, Civilisation

The sad truth is the divisive faction thrives on chaos.  They don't want anything except THEIR way... or no way!

Well Lisa Von Domek I'm sure you know where I fall in this "controversy" but I am chastened by your quote.

I will try to do better in respect to these others. No guarantees however.

Lisa it is amazing to me that those who claim to be the flag bearers for tolerance and inclusiveness, are proving themselves to be the opposite of what they claim.  Their actions clearly show, there position is to be divisive and intolerant of anyone who does not completely share their view.

That is the sad fact Ron and Alexandra Seigel (A) there is too much money in throwing stones.  Washington is being changed and the politicians are going to fight it (the people's will) tooth and nail.

Prayers are needed now, more than every Doug Dawes that we can be a strong and united nation.  And, that everyone is respectful to one another even when opinions are different.

Absolutely Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386 everyone must give the new Administration the respect the office deserves.  We can prove to ourselves what can be done when we all work together.

Ed, and I believe the new administration deserves the respect of the office and the time to bring its agenda to fruition.  Just as every administration before this one.

What has been so easy for many of us to see George Souto is just now coming to light for others.  The hypocrisy must stop and its time for everyone to work moving forward to a better tomorrow.

What will be helpful is for the soon to be President to expand the base instead of shrinking it. The President is the top offical in the US and sets the standards. I will wait to see if there is any change after tomorrow.

Good Morning Lisa - we need to put this divisiveness behind us.  George Souto makes a good point.  It would be good to work as "loyal opposition" and debate ideas.

Good morning Lisa Von Domek , Any time there is a choice of 2 or more things, someone is always dissapointed by the outcome. They tried to teach this in elementary school.  It's too bad some people never grow up.
