What Have We Become?

Hey guys - our society/generation isn't any more corrupted than previous societies/generations. They were just better at hiding it than us. If you don't believe me you need to read more, because as one of my favourite guys to quote has said:

The reading of all good books is like a conversation with the finest men of past centuries.
-Rene Descartes, philosopher and mathematician (1596-1650)

and any conversation is going to hint at some sort of corruption - it's impossbile to avoid it. Seriously though, if you don't believe me read books - the Bible is an excellent place to start but of course if you don't believe it that will be a problem so then i suggest you read Biographies on some historical figures. As an aside, biographies are not boring as i think they are stereotypically wont to be - not if you read a good one. Any way, they're my words of wisdom for the day. Have a good one!

u shud've titled it "confucious says..." hehe! but good words, good words. and quite frankly, if people don't belive the bible, how can they belive any historical documents!
