We had a riveting High Council speaker for quite a while (I know, I know, it's an
oxymoron, and that's the point -- that's why he was so outstanding). A refugee
from Pinochet's Chile, he was a widower and doggone it all, went and married a
divorcée in our ward, stealing her into one of the big city wards of our stake
and he's no longer our high councillor.

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the
worst thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly
debated…To think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was
a coward; any idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly
character; ability to understand a question from all sides meant that one was
totally unfitted for action.” – Pericles about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by
Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
