Wow. Awesome quote

We need more people like Ghandi - willing to do what is right, especially when it's difficult. As gacked from Amy Welborn.

Once, in a debate with a birth control advocate, his opponent asked Gandhi whether he would advocate artificial birth control in specific cases where the health of the mother might be at risk. His reply? “No. One exception will lead to another till it finally becomes general.” Instead, Gandhi recommends that in these rare situations couples live apart if they are truly incapable of continence—a situation he was not ever willing to concede lightly. This statement was typical of Gandhi’s approach to these hard cases. “A wise judge will not give the wrong decision in the face of a hard case. He will allow himself to appear to have hardened his heart, because he knows that truest mercy lies in not making a bad law.”

Mood: Still bon, merci
Music: Still James Blunt - tickled pink that he can weave Dorian Grey into his lyrics. Hoopla!
Thought: Huh. Dorien Grey.... Play? Opera? That might be fun....
