The American Dilemma and How We Can Fix It

  1. You’ve nailed that one! Speaking of drinking, here’s one (of mine) that definitely underscores your point:

    “Few will urinate in a glass of water they are about to drink – but many will piss in the pond from which it is drawn.

  2. From a more oblique frame of reference:

    “A little learning is a dang’rous thing;Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,And drinking largely sobers us again. ~ Alexander Pope’s poem ‘An Essay on Criticism”

    Nice quote. I like William’s pond analogy as well. 🙂
