Truth or comfort

Another great quote:

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair.” – CS Lewis


Here’s a great quote

“Too much and too long, we seem to have surrendered community excellence and community values in the mere accumulation of material things. … The gross national product does not [measure] the health of our children, the quality of their education, or the joy of their play. It does not include the beauty of our poetry or the strength of our marriages; the intelligence of our public debate or the integrity of our public officials.
It measures neither our wit nor our courage; neither our wisdom nor our learning; neither our compassion nor our devotion to our country; it measures everything, in short, except that which makes life worthwhile.”

Spoken by Robert Kennedy in the US in 1968, shortly before his untimely death.

Thanks to the guys at TGIF for sourcing the quote. They run some fascinating talks early on Friday mornings at a couple of coffee shops in Gauteng. Contact them at to get a list of the topics – well worth the effort.
