Quote by Emile M. Cioran
What does the future, that half of time, matter to the man who is infatuated with eternity?
This quote poses a rhetorical question emphasizing the insignificance of the future for an individual who is passionately fixated on eternity. It suggests that someone who is obsessed with attaining immortal or eternal existence may disregard the fleeting nature and importance of future events in their life. The quote invites contemplation on the mindset of individuals who prioritize transcending the limitations of time and the potential implications it may have on their present actions and attitudes towards the future.

Furthermore, we believe that health care reform, again I said at the beginning of my remarks, that we sent the three pillars that the President's economic stabilization and job creation initiatives were education and innovation - innovation begins in the classroom - clean energy and climate, addressing the climate issues in an innovative way to keep us number one and competitive in the world with the new technology, and the third, first among equals I may say, is health care, health insurance reform.
