■■■ Definition of fidelity: from the root Latin word “fidēlis”, meaning “faithful, loyal, trustworthy.”

“The fidelity of a dog is a precious gift demanding no less binding moral responsibilities than the friendship of a human being. The bond with a dog is as lasting as the ties of this earth can ever be.”
-Konrad Lorenz.

“Sooner or later, life makes philosophers of us all.”
–Maurice Riseling.

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.

Question Everything

The purpose of this website is to encourage individuals to step back, to pause, and to think. Try to gain a more thorough understanding of what is going on around us: in politics, in business, in society, and in the world in general. Basing one’s beliefs on emotions and feelings instead of observation and facts is, well, ignorant.

“It doesn’t matter how smart you are, unless you stop and think.”

“You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.” ― Daniel Patrick Moynihan

There is a difference between opinion and fact. The human brain very often fails to make proper distinction between the two. Each one of us should make certain that we are correctly and completely informed and that our opinions are supported by facts. Fortunately, the ultimate arbiter of truth remains the facts themselves— and not anyone’s opinion.
