The “attended to my answer” is the important part

The greatest compliment that was ever paid me was when one asked me what I thought, and attended to my answer.
**Henry David Thoreau


“I won’t be wronged. I won’t be insulted. I won’t be laid a-hand on. I don’t do these things to other people, and I require the same from them.”  

**John Wayne

In Their Shoes

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.”

“Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.”

By his deeds, he is judged

It is not the oath that makes us believe the man, but the man the oath.


Listen, The Sea Speaks

“The sea speaks a language polite people never repeat. It is a colossal scavenger slang and no respect.”

**Carl Sandburg**
