Congé Quotes

24 May

An extra day off gives me time to settle down and think – about life, society, art, all that good stuff. I remembered and google-confirmed these quotes this morning…

“This is the age of insincerity. The movies had the misfortune to come along in the twentieth century, and because they appeal to the masses there can be no sincerity in them. Hollywood is tied hand and foot to the demands for artificiality of the masses all over the world.”

– Lionel Barrymore

“With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”

– Abraham Lincoln, second inaugural address (1865)

Enjoy the day off, Canadians!
