New Feature: Quote of the Week
I'll have part two of the Abu Ghraib essay up later today (to read the introduction, just scroll down, it's the next entry after this one). In the mean time:
In an attempt to shake things up around here, I’m starting to implement a couple of ideas I’ve had floating around in my head. The first one is the quote of the week. So here’s the deal: I’m going to try to supply an interesting quote every week. These are not necessarily quotes I agree with, they are just ideas (often well phrased) that I think my readership will find interesting.
Hey, speaking of readership, we’re up to roughly 40 unique hits a day. Sometimes more (you people like reading blogs on Tuesdays, I’ve noticed) sometimes less. This is great! My blog hasn’t been around for very long and already an average of forty unique page views a day. Please remember to tell your friends about Parabasis! Let’s try to get the readership up up up!
Anyway, here’s the quote for this week:
“Anything under the sun is beautiful if you have the vision—it is the seeing of the thing that makes it so. The world is waiting for men with vision—it is not interested in mere pictures. What people subconsciously are interested in is the expression of beauty, something that helps them through the humdrum day, something that shocks them out of themselves and something that makes them believe in the beauty and the glory of human existence.” -- Charles Hawthorne
