Today's Quote:

Excess on occasion is exhilarating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit.

W. Somerset Maugham
(1874 - 1965)

This is a brilliant insight, and also a reason why a passionate love and fervent respect for Truth a necessity. It allows a man to maintain a moderate life infused with a rich and ripe foundation of certainty.

It is similar to what Jesus said about standing upon a rock of faith instead of sands of trepidation.
