Quotes of the Day for 28 November 2003 – Peace

There are actual wars going on, and I'm sure I would think it was war if I had the nerve to go to a shopping mall today. (Note for our foreign readers, today is the single busiest shopping day of the year in the US.) But the Van Horn household and the community I live in are at peace, for which I am very thankful.

     - François, Duc de La Rochefoucauld, 1613 - 1680
