Friday Philosophy

Today's quote comes courtesy of the longshoreman philosopher Eric Hoffer (1902-1983):

"The less justified a man is in claiming excellence for his own self, the more ready he is to claim all excellence for his nation, his religion, his race or his holy cause. A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business."
