Quote by Edmund Burke
Example is the school of mankind, and they will learn at no other
This quote, attributed to Edmund Burke, suggests that people learn best through personal experience and real-life examples. It implies that nothing else can truly teach or convince individuals as effectively as the practical knowledge gained from witnessing outcomes and consequences firsthand. According to this perspective, individuals are most likely to grasp important lessons and ideas when they observe and directly participate in the experiences that shape them.
For nearly five years the present Ministers have harassed every trade, worried every profession, and assailed or menaced every class, institution, and species of property in the country. Occasionally they have varied this state of civil warfare by perpetrating some job which outraged public opinion, or by stumbling into mistakes which have been always discreditable, and sometimes ruinous. All this they call a policy, and seem quite proud of it; but the country has, I think, made up its mind to close this career of plundering and blundering.
Too many people in the American media have lost any concept of loyalty to their country -- if they even consider it their country, rather than just their residence.Yeah, that's right, I'm playing the patriotism card. But not the way you think.Our country is at war. And it's a war in which victory absolutely depends on the Muslim world perceiving it as a war between the U.S and its allies on one side, and fanatical murderous terrorists on the other.If it is ever perceived as a war against Islam, then we have lost. The world has lost.So during such a difficult time, even people who think the Iraq War or even the whole war on terror is a horrible mistake still have an obligation of loyalty to the nation that offers them protection, prosperity, and freedom.Copyright
A car crash harnesses elements of eroticism, aggression, desire, speed, drama, kinesthetic factors, the stylizing of motion, consumer goods, status -- all these in one event. I myself see the car crash as a tremendous sexual event really: a liberation of human and machine libido (if there is such a thing).
