Quote by Theodore Hesburgh
Science can make man comfortable, but only wisdom can make man happy.
This quote suggests that while science and technological advancements can provide comfort and improve the material well-being of individuals, genuine happiness can only be achieved through wisdom. Science is instrumental in enhancing our quality of life and meeting our worldly needs, but it's wisdom that brings true fulfillment and contentment. Wisdom offers us insight into ourselves and the world around us, guiding us towards making meaningful choices, cultivating virtues, and fostering genuine connections with others. It reminds us that true happiness is not solely dependent on external circumstances, but rather on a deeper understanding and appreciation of life.
No matter what, I always make it home for Christmas. I love to go to my Tennessee Mountain Home and invite all of my nieces and nephews and their spouses and kids and do what we all like to do - eat, laugh, trade presents and just enjoy each other... and sometimes I even dress up like Santa Claus!
Some punishment seems preparing for a people who are ungratefully abusing the best constitution and the best King any nation was ever blessed with, intent on nothing but luxury, licentiousness, power, places, pensions, and plunder; while the ministry, divided in their counsels, with little regard for each other, worried by perpetual oppositions, in continual apprehension of changes, intent on securing popularity in case they should lose favor, have for some years past had little time or inclination to attend to our small affairs, whose remoteness makes them appear even smaller.
The conversation was mesmerizing, not for its content but for the cadences of the talk, the rhythm we fell into when we were alone, now as before. Every conversation between friends or lovers creates its own easy or awkward rhythms, hidden talk that runs like a subterranean river under even the most banal exchange.
