Quote: William G. McAdoo

"It is impossible to defeat an ignorant man in argument."

-William G. McAdoo

I thought of this quote today when I was in an argument with my brother. He was saying that a man who gave up a football contract to join the army and fight to defend his country was stupid. He says that money is the only thing that matters. Of course, I had an issue with someone being that selfish and ignorant. I think a better quote would be this-
"It is a waste of time to argue with an ignorant man. Intelligent men have more important things to do with their time."

Rejected, Abandoned
Alone, Forgotten
No one to go to
No one to guide her
Struggling, Fighting
Working, Planning
Barely able to keep going
Unwilling to stop trying
Falling, Withdrawing
Hurting, Losing
Will no one help her?
Does no one care for her?
Slipping, Sliding
Grasping, Crashing
Her strong will is failing
Her big heart is breaking

Quote: Marilyn Monroe

“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.” 

-Marilyn Monroe
