Kinda like this quote.....

Came across this quote this morning (woke up really early today, 7 o'clock) on orkut,
The only good is knowledge and the only evil is ignorance.
This indeed is relevant to many things happening in the world today. Especially, over here in the States, where a large section of the public are still under the belief that the Iraq war has got something to with the 9/11 attacks. Relevant also now because of the upcoming general elections for the control of the Congress, people need to effectively use their franchise to bring some sense and direction to the country.

I've never heard this quote before and kinda got stuck at the back of the mind all day. I finally googled for it just a couple of minutes back and found out that it was from the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, known as the father of Western philosophy.

People need his kind of philosophy more than ever now.
