Splash du Jour: Friday
I have this picture above one of my chest-level bookcases.
That tree-thing reading a book in the right corner? That’s supposed to be an Ent [Lord of the Rings]… given to me by my beloved nephew, Chris.
The inscription, at the top of the picture, is as follows:
The men who create power make an indispensable contribution to the Nation’s greatness, but the men who question power make a contribution just as indispensable, especially when that questioning is disinterested, for they determine whether we use power or power uses us.
-- John F. Kennedy, Amherst College, Oct 26, 1963 –
Have a great Friday!
