MEdom Admissions (Barack Obama, Benjamin Franklin, C.S. Lewis…)

“What I trace this to is a certain selfishness on my part… I was so obsessed with me and the reasons that I might be dissatisfied that I couldn’t focus on other people… When I find myself taking the wrong step, I think a lot of the times it’s because I’m trying to protect myself instead of trying to do God’s work. I think that is my own failure.” President Barack Obama, August 16, 2008 at the Saddleback Civil Forum, Lake Forest, CA

“I try and I try and I try and I try, I can’t get no satisfaction.”
Mick Jagger


“If it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad. If it makes you happy, then why the hell are you so sad?” Sheryl Crow, Singer-Songwriter





“Wars and revolutions and battles are due simply and solely to the body and its desires. All wars are undertaken for the acquisition of wealth; and the reason why we have to acquire wealth is the body, because we are slaves in its service.” Socrates




“As long as I have a want, I have a reason for living…Satisfaction is death.”

George Bernard Shaw






“I have seven of everything and more in the till, but I ain’t never satisfied.” John Mellencamp, Singer-Songwriter





“I’ve had everything that I’ve ever wanted in my life and I’m vomiting in the sink again…How did that happen?” Trent Reznor, Nine Inch Nails






“Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.” Benjamin Franklin


“If I am a proud man, then, as long as there is one man in the whole world more powerful, or richer, or cleverer than I, he is my rival and my enemy.” C.S. Lewis
