Happy Diwali to our Hindu and Sikh friends!

The Row of Lamps

“In each legend, myth and story of Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil; and it is with each Deepawali and the lights that illuminate our homes and hearts, that this simple truth finds new reason and hope. From darkness unto light — the light that empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity.”

… from the Wikipedia article Diwali

“In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.”

In recognition of the true meaning of Diwali, I offer to my friends the quotes above and below from author Ayn Rand…

“The truly and deliberately evil men are a very small minority; it is the appeaser who unleashes them on mankind; it is the appeaser’s intellectual abdication that invites them to take over. When a culture’s dominant trend is geared to irrationality, the thugs win over the appeasers…”
