Worthwhile Sentences on Thinking

From George Orwell: People can foresee the future only when it coincides with their own wishes, and the most grossly obvious facts can be ignored when they are unwelcome."

From Victor Frankl: "Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."

From The New Yorker (about Harry Potter): "That the reality of machines can outpace the imagination of magic"

From homosexual pastor Mel White: "Even when we believe the Scriptures are 'infallible' or 'without error,' it's terribly dangerous to think that our understanding of every biblical text is also without error."

From Abraham Lincoln: "The problem with Internet quotations is that many are not genuine."
