Quote of the Day

Another salvo in the "pithy quotation" war:

"It is not the constructive criticism of human behavior, but the respectful, dignified, and loving treatment of the human being that is the essence of Christianity. A true Christian can practice the former while maintaining the latter; but the person who practices the former at the expense of the latter is no Christian." -- Jimmy Huck (1968- ), contemporary activist, righteous moral philosopher, defender of the marginalized, and expert "pithy quotation" warrior.
And, yes, there's a bit of arrogance in the whole idea of quoting myself, but it's really part of my effort to poke a bit of fun at the pettiness of expressing conflict not through direct and forthright honesty, but through the self-righteous use of cryptic and pithy quotations.
