Splash du Jour: Thursday

There is in every village a torch – the teacher:
and an extinguisher – the clergyman.

-- Victor Hugo

Have a great Wednesday!

Cip,

Very controversial and edgy quote. You could casue a riot by saying that in some places.

I like it! :)

Yeah. Agreed.
The fact that it could start a riot points to the fact that the statement itself contains a whole lot of truth.
The riot would not be started by people that were having a good time in the first place.
What clergyman ever existed, that encouraged the masses to engage in higher dimensions of enjoyment in this earthly life, which is [let's face it] all that we know, of what it is to live?
