That one's amazing.

"Owl," said Rabbit shortly, "you and I have brains. The others have fluff. If there is any thinking to be done in this Forest - and when I say thinking I mean thinking - you and I must do it."

RE: Favorite Quotes
It's something my dad used to say to us as kids all the time. Cool Hand Luke was his favorite movie. Truth be told, I am pretty sure the real quote is, "What WE'VE GOT here is....." but my dad said it the way I quoted it, and to me its a quote from him as much as from the movie.

Guess its time to watch it again to make sure. Any excuse will do really! LOL.

"A young man (person) who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his/her reading."

---C.S. Lewis

(I don't know quite what that means but I think he's saying read anything and everything and let you mind expand as it explores--that's my take anyway.)

Correction below--Thanks Unbeliever--again. (and Ashley for fixing it) Now I see that this guy was a real ass.

No, he means the exact opposite. C. S. Lewis was the author of The Chronicles of Narnia, a series-long allegory for Christianity. He's saying that atheists aren't very well-read, and if they were, they wouldn't be atheists.

Isn't it amazing how taking something out of context can influence the way it is perceived and interpreted?

All learning is quite useless if you haven't learned to question what you learn.

My favourite is (and I can't remember where I heard it):

"If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck..."
