I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone an excellent National Day of Reason!
In those elusive two weeks of spring in the Washington, DC area between freezing and baking, my girlfriend and I went to visit the National Monuments. When we were at the Jefferson Memorial we saw an elevator which took us underground to a section I’d never known about. Along the walls were quotes, this being one of my favorites:
“Here, we are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.” – Thomas Jefferson, 1820
I invite you all to offer your own submissions – famous quotes, thoughts, or links – to celebrate this day of reason.
