Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

Room for Cmpromise?

Don't compromise yourself
You are all you've got
Janis Joplin
I have been hearing a lot about compromise lately
Doing what is best for the whole by giving up what is best
Learning to applaud mediocrity
Watching what was good become what is common
The linguist Geoff Nunberg said the following about compromise
The word compromise faces in two directions. It looks forward to the bargains we strike but it also looks backward at what we had to sacrifice to get there
Stand your ground
or learn to live
with the sacrifices of compromise
that's the choice
and that's poetiquejustis
There is a way that appears to be right,
    but in the end it leads to death.
Proverbs 14:12
