Peter Sheil
If God lived on earth, people would break his windows.
Jewish Proverb

A boy can learn a lot from a dog: obedience, loyalty, and the importance of turning around three times before lying down.
Robert Benchley (1889 - 1945)

Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it.
Andre Gide

When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators.

Any one quote in particular, or are you scornful of all four?

Believe those who are seeking the truth. Doubt those who find it.~Andre Gide
I don't know this one when you take the time to read it hits me weird...like sitting on a fencepost watching. Those seeking the truth are of no consequence, seeking says they are in motion so there is no need to believe YET. Those who have found it, as we know only see truth from their own ideas, thoughts motives..etc...so I would indeed doubt them and have in the past. Ah, CACA what do I know, I am no philosopher! :-) hee hee! See what happens if I add any comment other than *kiss* *hug* *smile* I am standing in the loser line this morning, me thinks...

:) not a loser line, I just wanted clarification - you can have whatever views on my quotes you like (and can copy and use them as you like).

As to the quote, if you are searching then you are still using your brain to make value judgements - if you have "found the truth" then you are less receptive to other thoughts or changes ... a very broard generalisation I know :)

Have you not found some of the Christian community have very fixed views? "our way is the only true way and all others will be damned" [and other communities as well, but I have seen it first hand more from Christians]. Personally I think all the major world religions have good (and bad) points and can accept other's beliefs quite happily.

Please don't ever feel you cannot comment on my quotes - I only cut and paste them from a web site and don't necessarily have any great attachment to them ... even if I did I'm still open for discusions :)

I am the same about my quotes (mine, listen to me) they say what I cannot some times, although that is odd coming from a person who claims to be a communicator to the masses, the thing is I stay with what I know or else I find myself floundering in a sea of insincerity that I don't like feeling. And yes all major religions seem to think they hold the corner on TRUTH...what I find fascinating is all religions and 'Truths' have the same foundation...love, peace, charity. It is in the interpretation of said three that it seems to get murky and bottlenecked. I stick with the three and it works for me! :-)
