Sentimental Fools – A Quote
“Sentimental pity does not bring men to their feet. It reduces them to an emotional pulp of receptive weakness.”
Lynn Harold Hough, The Christian Criticism of Life, Abingdon-Cokesbury Press, New York – Nashville, 1941, pg. 128
As an interesting side note, Thesauras.com informs us that a synonym for sentimental fools is bleeding-heart liberal. How apropos.
