A Few Seashells From my Beach
January 5, 2017 § Leave a comment
During the past sixty or seventy years I have picked up a few scraps of prose and poetry. Some of them inspired me. Some made me smile. Some related to my private life. Some were chosen as part of my life as a lawyer. Some expressed my doubts and fruitless quests for certainty. I kept them and reviewed them when I needed inspiration.
I do not share these because I have any claim to wisdom nor with any intent to be condescending. I have reviewed them because I need words to offer me hope as I contemplate the empowerment of a dangerous foe. I especially recommend the wisdom of Benjamin Franklin Louis Brandeis. They remind me that we have faced and survived danger before.
