    As for comfort:

    If a nation values anything more than freedom, it will lose its freedom, and the irony of it is that if it is comfort or money that it values more, it will lose that too. - W. Somerset Maugham

    It is no time for ease and comfort. It is time to dare and endure. - Winston Churchill

    If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth only soft soap and wishful thinking to begin, and in the end, despair. - C.S. Lewis

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moment of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. - Martin Luther King, Jr

    The lust for comfort, that stealthy thing that enters the house a guest, and then becomes a host, and then a master. - Khalil Gibran

    Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. - Neale Donald Walsch

    Comfort and prosperity have never enriched the world as much as adversity has. - Billy Graham

    Be careful in dealing with a man who cares nothing for comfort or promotion, but is simply determined to do what he believes to be right. He is a dangerous uncomfortable enemy, because his body, which you can always conquer, gives you little purchase upon his soul. - Gilbert Murray

    I have the utmost respect for the decision by the Court of Appeal and the courage of Ms Vellama Marie Muthu and Mr M Ravi. This was a close shave for democracy in Singapore.
    huh what close shave ?

    I would rather think that this was a case of an unbiased judiciary as well as democracy at work

    A high court judge had earlier ruled in a 53-page judgement that the Constitution does not require the Prime Minister to call elections to fill elected Member vacancies.

    I most certainly agree. We are not asking anything from the country other than what is already enshrined in our country's Constitution. "ask what you can do for your country,"? I am asking my fellow citizens to take an interest in such matters that is of grave concern to the survival of the country and to recognize and defend the key pillars, institutions and Constitution of this very country.

    what we need next are to overturn the archaic sections 377A and also the Internal Security Act . the former being not practical to enforce , the latter being used beyond its original intent

    I must consult Sion regarding this, to see who is quoting Lao Tze more accurately.
