Einstein Say -

If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales.

And this too ...

If people are good only because they fear punishment, and hope for reward, then we are a sorry lot indeed.

I agree with both, but the second one rings very true here in the South. People talk about eing goo because of what they'll "get" for it; I've heard it said, somehwre, that we should be good for goodness sake.
Einstein and Santa. Who knew?

We really do need to be good for goodness' sake, as Bob said, not for a reward or for fear of punishment.

I know! I wouldn't change my morals and behavior if I thought there were a Heaven and Hell or God and Devil. They aren't based on fear but on doing what I think is right.
