Philosophical Friday: Happy April Fools Day!

St. Jude - Patron Saint of Fools and Lost Causes







Small April sobbed, I'm going to cry

Please give me a cloud to wipe my eye;

Then April Fool, she laughed instead

And smiled a rainbow overhead.

"The great God endows His children variously. To some He gives intellect...and they move the earth. To some He allots heart...and the beating pulse of humanity is theirs. But to some He gives only a soul, without intelligence...and these, who never grow up, but remain always His children, are God's fools, kindly, elemental, simple, as if from His palette the Artist of all has taken one color instead of many."  -- Mary Roberts Rinehart


"Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something."   -  Plato


Let us be thankful for the fools. But for them the rest of us could not succeed. - Mark Twain

  1. Love the Twain quote in particular! I sure wish we had more spring-like weather to welcome in April.
