Food for thought: “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Upcoming events:

  • Sunday, October 15: 2:00-3:30 pm: Monthly meeting – we are meeting at the Huntsville Public Library on Monroe Street in Huntsville, room A/B (to the right of the lobby). In light of all the national tragedies (natural and man-made), how to we cope? How do we care? How do we comfort and help? And maintain our sanity — all in a reasoned and rational way.

 

  • Monday, October 23: 6:00-7:30pm: Philosophy Café. Open discussion on philosophical topics continues on the fourth Monday of each month. This month we are meeting at “Sam & Gregs” at 119 Northside Square. An assortment of pizzas, gelato, and beverages are available for purchase (and to lubricate discussion). New faces are always welcome!

 

  • Sunday, November 12: 2:00- 4:00 pm: Non-Fiction Readers Book Discussion Group, meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month. New discussion participants always welcomed! Please join us at the Huntsville Public Library on Monroe Street in Huntsville, room A/B (to the right of the lobby). This month is an open discussion on what everyone is reading and recommending

 

“The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.”

― Barack Obama
