Tuesday Short Cuts

"A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else." —Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Insight: “A man who lies to himself, and believes his own lies, becomes unable to recognize truth, either in himself or in anyone else, and he ends up losing respect for himself and for others. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices.” —Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881)

Worshipping Mother Earth: “Forging a coalition between the environmental movement and the women’s rights movement will not only fundamentally advance women’s rights but also do a world of good for the planet, which is bearing an environmental burden because of population growth. … Population projection experts estimate a worst-case scenario in which we grow by 70 percent and reach a population of 13 billion people by the end of the century. But if we continue to invest in sensible international family-planning programs and accept the challenge of meeting the needs of women and families, we could potentially stabilize the population at below 10 billion.” —John Podesta and Timothy E. Wirth

Non Compos Mentis: “The Dutch are really, really good at speed skating. … ‘Why are they so good?’ you may be asking yourself. Because skating is an important mode of transportation in a city like Amsterdam. [The city] has lots of canals that can freeze in winter. So, for as long as the canals have existed, the Dutch have skated on them to get from place to place, to race each other and also to have fun.” —NBC’s Katie Couric

Village Idiots, part I: “I thought that Mike Pence said that it was inappropriate to make political statements at sporting events? Wasn’t he that guy who walked out of the football game because people were kneeling and not standing?” —Sunny Hostin of “The View”

Village Idiots, part II: “We have to be respectful because what we do know about politicians is they end up sitting with people that you and I say, ‘Well, why are they sitting with them?’ So if you’re in Korea, you need to stand up. You need to stand up and show respect!” —Whoopi Goldberg

And last… “The liberal media praise a murderous regime and laugh off poison attempts on the First Family and then blame Trump when people question their credibility.” —Allie Stuckey
