Might vs. Insight

The State’s Enforcer was the man with the biggest stick in the territory, and one day whilst brashly buffeting a bewildered citizen he was asked, “What intellectual training did you undergo to become our police authority?”  And he replied, “When you’re holding the biggest stick, you don’t need no training.”  (With this comment and a sharp rap to the head, the subdued citizen was sorely enlightened.)

There are two kinds of health:  Health and extraordinary health.

In retaliation, (or due to imitation), a nearby planet passed an ordinance forbidding, on alternative Saturdays, the inevitable.

In the front of the room a hand was raised, a query proffered, “In the battle between might and insight, which will emerge triumphant?”  And the reply replied, “Let us hope that those who must ask such questions have lots of the former, since they have little of the latter.”

If you do plan to join in with me, it’s time you noted this: There is no profit in studying the individual man, only the species.
