Divide each difficulty into as many parts as is feasible and necessary to resolve it.”   —   Rene Descartes

(Makes a lot of sense.  Like the Chinese proverb “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  Right?  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Whenever anyone has offended me, I try to raise my soul so high that the offense cannot reach it.”   —   René Descartes

(This is a great idea, from a real thinking man.  We all think, but too many of us allow our feelings to dictate our thoughts and actions.  Especially, feelings of hurt, shock and disgust.  The corporate media knows this all too well, which is why they force feed us what was once known as police blotter, tabloid fodder, in lieu of serious news, that might actually affect us.  They play to our baser emotions.  Titillation has, in large part, replaced information.  We would all do well to learn to detach ourselves from these baser feelings, when we’re hearing and seeing hurtful and offensive material.  We grow from acting on the intellectual, not by reacting to the visceral.  Do good and be well . . . informed, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  I had such high hopes for the CBS This Morning show, until this morning’s shameless promotion of this week’s episode of Undercover Boss, which is a CBS quasi-reality show, by “anchor/reporter” Gayle KingUndercover Boss is the most manipulative show on television!  Aw gee, these CEOs and presidents have a heart, after all!  Sniff!  They’re just like me and you!  What a surprise that this show first came on the air following the huge government/taxpayer funded bailouts, and is getting more play in response to the Occupy Movement.  Boy, do these network people know suckers when they see them!   —   YUR

Each problem that I solved became a rule, which served afterwards to solve other problems.”   — Rene Descartes

(I write the songs that make the whole world sing!”  Wow.  Was Rene Descartes the Barry Manilow of his day, or what???  JKLOL!  Seemingly, this is my first Descartes quotation.  Could that be possible?)   — YUR
