Splash du Jour: Tuesday

And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual. This is what I am and what I am about.
-- John Steinbeck, East of Eden --

Have a great Tuesday!

I've never liked Steinbeck much, but I think this quote just changed my mind!
