A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on bitterness, choice, focus, path, point of view, questions, and reality

A cucumber is bitter. - Throw it away. -
There briars in the road? - Turn aside from them.
This is enough.  Do not add, And why were such things made in the world?

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

A Quote by Jon Stewart on religion, homosexuality, choice, human rights, and gay marriage

Religion is far more of a choice than homosexuality. And the protections that we have for religion — we protect religion. And talk about a lifestyle choice — that is absolutely a choice... It’s a travesty that people have forced someone who is gay to have to make their case that they deserve the same basic rights as someone else.
