Charles Caleb Colton quotes

Patience Rayn's Decodaquote from Saturday January 23, 2010 turned out to be a quote by Charles Caleb Colton:

"Men will wrangle for religion, write for it, fight for it, die for it; anything but live for it. "

Colton Caleb Colton (1780-1832), an English cleric and writer whose words and insights still continue to ring true two hundred plus years later. Such as this one, which remind me of Sarah Palin ...

"It is an easy and a vulgar thing to please the mob, and not a very arduous task to astonish them, but essentially, to benefit and improve them is a work fraught with difficulty, and teeming with danger."

Sarah Palin continually chooses the easy route - the path of pleasing and inflaming the fears and prejudices of the mob

Barack Obama continually chooses the more difficult path - the path of improvement for us all.

I know which path I'm on.

Thank you Barack.
Good-bye Sarah.
