1. Interesting - I posted that (without the pic) earlier today on DU.

I think it can describe a good democrat.

Edit Note: The quote in the OP is abbreviated. imo he left out the best part.

2. I very sincerely beg your pardon.

I don't really care to be redundant on this board.

I appreciate that you beat me to it!

3. It is a great OP.

I am glad you started it as it is perfect for Thanksgiving.

I am going to post the entire quote below and highlight what was left out -

“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”

6. I like that, too!

One for my quotes collection, yodermon!

"Dismiss what insults your soul."
