Inspirational Quote of the Day: One by Horace Greeley

Cultivate common sense and shine brightly as a beacon among those lacking it.

Horace Greeley played a key role in the Civil War on the Union side.

Excerpt from Wikipedia

Horace Greeley (February 3, 1811 – November 29, 1872) was founder and editor of the New-York Tribune, among the great newspapers of its time. Long active in politics, he served briefly as a congressman from New York, and was the unsuccessful candidate of the new Liberal Republican party in the 1872 presidential election against incumbent President Ulysses S. Grant.

Horace Greeley was born on February 3, 1811, on a farm about five miles from Amherst, New Hampshire. He could not breathe for the first twenty minutes of his life. It is suggested that this deprivation may have caused him to develop Asperger’s syndrome—some of his biographers, such as Mitchell Snay, maintain that this condition would account for his eccentric behaviors in later life.[1] He was of English descent, and his forebears included early settlers of Massachusetts and New Hampshire.[2]

  1. He could not breathe for the first twenty minutes of his life.

    Really? It’s obvious that sentence should be rewritten to say he had problems with his breathing the first 20 minutes of his life. We know the results of not breathing at all.

  2. A blessing for those who do have it. I think it’s inherited. From my encounters, it is found more in males since many women tend to be emotional thinkers.

    A good example is the one about sanctuary cities. It’s just common sense crime rates will go down if illegals with criminal histories are deported. It’s also logical and sound reasoning. No need to explain it. But, liberals come up with all kinds of emotional reasons why that’s not so. Evidently, they can’t relate this to subtraction. If 100 are committing crimes and likely to be involved in more since they are getting away with those in the past, remove all 100, the crime rate is zero. This is rather elementary, isn’t it? Lol!
