I'd never heard that one before, but it just became one of my favorite all-time quotes! Great find!

(And now I know what quote I'm posting tomorrow!)

..... Just as the stomach, when disordered by disease and secreting bile, changes all the food which it receives, and turns every kind of sustenance into a source of pain, so whatever you entrust to an ill-regulated mind becomes to it a burden, an annoyance, and a source of misery. Thus the most prosperous and the richest men have the most trouble; and the more property they have to perplex them, the less likely they are to find out what they really are. Nothing, therefore, can reach bad men which would do them good; nay, nothing which would not do them harm. They change whatever falls to their lot into their own evil nature; and things which elsewhere would, if given to better men, be both beautiful and profitable, are ruinous to them. They cannot, therefore, bestow benefits, because no one can give what he does not possess, and, therefore, they lack the pleasure of doing good to others.
..........— Lucius Annaeus Seneca (circa 4 BCE – 65 CE), Roman Stoic philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist. On Benefits, Book V, Section XII (circa 63 CE). From the De Beneficiis text (1876) of Berlin Gertz, edited (1887) by Aubrey Stewart.

Great quote from a great book. I read it last year. I love his talk-show, but rarely catch it.

Unlike many comedians who write short books with double-space pages and large fonts, Ferguson really put some effort into American on Purpose and it shows.

I'm on chapter four, as I just started reading it. I can't usually catch his show later, but I've got a DVR.

.....[I]t would be many years before Yahwism became a religion of the book. The exiles had brought a number of scrolls from the royal archive in Jerusalem with them to Babylon, and there they studied and edited these documents. If they were allowed to return home, these records of the history and cult of their people could play an important role in the restoration of national life. But the scribes did not regard these writings as sacrosanct and felt free to add new passages, altering them to fit their changed circumstances. They had as yet no notion of a sacred text.
..........— Karen Armstrong (1944 - ), British author, former nun. A History of God (1993).
