Look closer. Think harder. Choose the sound argument over the clever one.

Brains or Heart (or Both?)

From The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, by L. Frank Baum, via John Eldredge (p 38):

Dorothy and the Scarecrow had been greatly interested in the story of the Tin Woodman, and now they knew why he was so anxious to get a new heart. "All the same," said the Scarecrow, "I shall ask for brains instead of a heart; for a fool would not know what to do with a heart if he had one." "I shall take the heart," returned the Tin Woodman; "for brains do not make one happy, and happiness is the best thing in the world."

Though happiness isn't necessarily my goal, may each enjoy its place.
