I come from a people who gave the Ten Commandments to the world. Time has come to strengthen them by three additional ones, which we ought to adopt and commit ourselves to: thou shall not be a perpetrator; thou shall not be a victim; and thou shall never, but never, be a bystander.

Yehuda Bauer, professor (b. 1926)

I hope I cause happiness WHEREever I go a lot more than I cause happiness WHENever I go.

Hillary certainly is getting a good arse biting.
