Quote & Mini Commentary

"One's true happiness depends more upon one's own judgment of oneself, on a consciousness of rectitude in action and intention, and in the approbation of those few who judge impartially, than upon the applause of the unthinking undiscerning multitude, who are apt to cry Hosanna today, and tomorrow, Crucify him."
-- Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) American Statesman and Scientist

This proves conclusively that old Ben was many things, but never a standup comedian. Nay, those who trade in the currency of the giggle, depend on the unthinking undiscerning multitude.
