In Honor of Stephen Colbert

Bless Stephen Colbert for his strength and courage, his humor and brilliance, his wit and wisdom, his commitment to truth and passionate caring for us all. What a gift he has been for all who tuned in  and were able to listen and be moved and changed by the experience. I have such gratitude to those who are able to create ripples that make an incredible difference. Stephen Colbert is certainly among them. Peace ~ Molly

Don’t be afraid to be a fool. Remember, you cannot be both young and wise. Young people who pretend to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynics. Cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but it is the farthest thing from it. Because cynics don’t learn anything. Because cynicism is a self-imposed blindness, a rejection of the world because we are afraid it will hurt us or disappoint us. Cynics always say no. But saying yes begins things. Saying yes is how things grow. Saying yes leads to knowledge. “Yes” is for young people. So for as long as you have the strength to, say yes.

- Stephen Colbert
