Professor Michael Sandel (b. March 5, 1953)

“The human faculties of perception, judgment, discriminative feeling, mental activity, and even moral preference, are exercised only in making a choice.

  1. Very true Prof –

    Human sloth is a greater sin than unbridled sex. That is wny I sin less 🙂

    Thanks … as always, you’re quite welcome here.
