Succeed and give, and it helps you live, But no man can help you die. There is room in the halls of pleasure For a long and lordly train, But one by one we must all file on Through the narrow aisles of pain.
An icy sweetness fills my mind , A sense that under thing and wing Lies, taut yet living , coiled, the spring.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit. Truman If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn't be called research, would it? Most people would rather die than think; in fact, they do so.
Experience is the name everyone gives to their mistakes. All animals are equal — but some animals are more equal than others. To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day, to the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death.
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more; it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing. I found one day in school a boy of medium size ill-treating a smaller boy. I expostulated, but he replied: 'The bigs hit me, so I hit the babies; that's fair.
The barge she sat in, like a burnishd throne, burnd on the water; the poop was beaten gold, purple the sails, and so perfumed, that the winds were love-sick with them, the oars were silver, which to the tune of flutes kept stroke, and made the water which they beat to follow faster, as amorous of their strokes.
One can no more prevent the mind from returning to an idea than the sea from returning to a shore. In the case of the sailor, this is called a tide; in the case of the guilty, it is called remorse.

This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer. The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed. I think all foreigners should stop interfering in the internal affairs of Iraq.
The law will never make men free; it is men who have got to make the law free. On two occasions I have been asked [by members of Parliament! Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out? History would be an excellent thing if only it were true.
Without friends no one would choose to live, though he had all other goods. I can't die. It would ruin my image. Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes. When the weight of the paperwork equals the weight of the plane, the plane will fly. It's a damn poor mind that can only think of one way to spell a word. A man said to the Universe: "Sir, I exist! The battle of the sexes will never be won as long as we keep sleeping with the enemy. A free society is one where it is safe to be unpopular.
As long as I am mayor of this city the great industries are secure. We hear about constitutional rights, free speech and the free press. I never met a man so stupid I could not learn something from him. Liberty is always dangerous, but it is the safest thing we have. I don't mind making jokes, but I don't want to look like one.

Certain old men prefer to rise at dawn, taking a cold bath and a long walk with an empty stomach and otherwise mortifying the flesh.
They then point with pride to these practices as the cause of their sturdy health and ripe years; the truth being that they are hearty and old, not because of their habits, but in spite of them. The reason we find only robust persons doing this thing is that it has killed all the others who have tried it. Government is too big and too important to be left to the politicians. Ars longa, vita brevis. There's nothing in the middle of the road but a yellow stripe and dead armadillos.

It is now possible for a flight attendant to get a pilot pregnant. Never burn a penny candle looking for a halfpenny. Your theory is crazy, but it's not crazy enough to be true. Our chiefs said 'Done,' and I did not deem it; Our seers said 'Peace,' and it was not peace; Earth will grow worse till men redeem it, And wars more evil, ere all wars cease.

He who promises to love forever or hate forever or be forever faithful to someone is promising something that is not in his power. It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it happens. Remember that time is money. I never desire to converse with a man who has written more than he has read.
When smashing monuments, save the pedestals — they always come in handy. Since love and fear can hardly exist together, if we must choose between them, it is far safer to be feared than loved.

No matter what verbal space you try to enclose Zen in, it resists, and spills over We've moved away from being a culture of people who think about movies to one made up of people who believe that spouting a list of preferences is the same as registering an opinion.
We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately" - Benjamin Franklin Really, I'm not out to destroy Microsoft. That will just be a completely unintentional side effect.

I really believe that if there's any kind of God, he wouldn't be in any one of us — not you, not me, but just this space in between. If there's some magic in this world, it must be in the attempt of understanding someone else, sharing something.
Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born. The Enlightened take things Lightly. The growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs. A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct. This every sister of the Bene Gesserit knows.
One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, 'Thank You', that would suffice. Security is mostly a superstition Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.
For myself, I am an optimist — it does not seem to be much use being anything else. I have never let my schooling get in the way of my education. I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death.
What we cannot speak of we must pass over in silence. If your morals make you dreary, depend upon it, they are wrong. I do not say give them up, for they may be all you have, but conceal them like a vice lest they spoil the lives of better and simpler people. Some mornings it just doesn't seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps. Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
Men are born ignorant, not stupid. They are made stupid by education. That virtue we appreciate is as much ours as anothers. We see so much only as we possess. We are not afraid to follow truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it. Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven. They were nothing like the French people I had imagined.

I cannot believe in a God who wants to be praised all the time. Jackie Biskupski is running for a seat in the Utah Legislature, and she's attracting a lot of attention because she's a lesbian. Her Republican opponent, Dan Alderson, is a staunch Mormon, and is running a negative ad campaign calling her lifestyle abnormal and deviant. His six wives agree. Nationalism is an infantile disease.
It is the measles of mankind. Ring out a slowly dying cause, And ancient forms of party strife; Ring in the nobler modes of life, With sweeter manners, purer laws. Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep thoughts can be winnowed from deep nonsense. All of humanity is in peril of extinction if each one of us does not dare, now and henceforth, always to tell only the truth, and all the truth, and to do so promptly — right now.
Truth alone will endure; all the rest will be swept away before the tide of time. True Love in this differs from gold and clay, That to divide is not to take away. Love is like understanding, that grows bright, Gazing on many truths. Dignity does not come in possessing honors, but in deserving them. There may be love without jealousy, but there is none without fear. Jealousy is a disease, love is a healthy condition. There is a theory which states that if ever anybody discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.
There is another theory which states that this has already happened. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong. Clarke Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic. Men do not differ much about what things they will call evils; they differ enormously about what evils they will call excusable.

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being let me do it now.
Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. My years are not advancing as fast as you might think. The things to do are: the things that need doing, that you see need to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done. If my poetry aims to achieve anything, it's to deliver people from the limited ways in which they see and feel. To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength. Misunderstandings and neglect occasion more mischief in the world than even malice and wickedness.
At all events, the two latter are of less frequent occurrence. Fanaticism consists in redoubling your effort when you have forgotten your aim. If we cannot end now our differences, at least we can make the world safe for diversity. Kennedy True love is inexhaustible; the more you give, the more you have.

The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom. Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Seuss Ethics and Aesthetics are one. An amicable divorce is like a ventilated condom; it just doesn't work.
An interesting thing has happened since San Francisco started granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples: my marriage is just fine! Even though there are thousands of gay and lesbian couples affirming their love for and commitment to each other, my marriage — my affirmation of love and commitment to my wife — isn't threatened at all.
As a matter of fact, the only people who can really "threaten" my marriage are the two of us. It must be so humiliating to have such a public break-up. Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much. Just because it's old doesn't mean you have to read it. March Truth gains more even by the errors of one who, with due study and preparation, thinks for himself, than by the true opinions of those who only hold them because they do not suffer themselves to think.

Washington Education: That which discloses to the wise and disguises from the foolish their lack of understanding. He whose inclination prompts him to cultivate your friendship of his own accord, will love you more than one whom you have been at pains to attach to you. When he has no respect for anyone, he can no longer love, and in him, he yields to his impulses, indulges in the lowest form of pleasure, and behaves in the end like an animal in satisfying his vices.
And it all comes from lying to others and to yourself. For it is impossible for a man to begin to learn what he has a conceit that he already knows. You may quote me. Lewis There is no sincerer love than the love of food. Great speech is impassioned, small speech cantankerous. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. No matter how friendly and even-tempered the beast, one is affected by every twitch and grunt. Even when you make a tax form out on the level, you don't know when it's through if you are a crook or a martyr.
Skinner The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your doors, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love, instead, see all of us as one. Chesterton Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped. We carry the seeds of the one or the other about with us in our minds wherever we go. Happiness never decreases by being shared. Take it and copy it. Hanlon May The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds.
For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May. Most of them acquire it fragment by fragment, on a small scale, by successive developments, cellularly, like a laborious mosaic. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her. Travers The integral vision embodies an attempt to take the best of both worlds, ancient and modern. But that demands a critical stance willing to reject unflinchingly the worst of both as well. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance.
Mencken Love me for love's sake, that evermore thou may'st love on, through love's eternity. I cleave to no system. I am a true seeker. The creative mind plays with the objects it loves. Well, new to me. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident. Gurdjieff The difference between a hooker and a ho ain't nothin' but a fee. That little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. Clement Stone We all have ability.
The difference is how we use it. Man's most valuable trait is a judicious sense of what not to believe. Toynbee Seek always to do some good, somewhere. Every man has to seek in his own way to realize his true worth. You must give some time to your fellow man.
Even if it's a little thing, do something for those who need help, something for which you get no pay but the privilege of doing it. The place to be happy is here. The time to be happy is now. The way to be happy is to make others so. Ingersoll Love loves to love love. But the real great man is the man who makes every man feel great. Chesterton I'm not a prettier everywoman. I am an everywoman that they clean up awfully well for TV. Even philosophers wish for them. Those who write against it want to have the glory of having written well; and those who read it desire the glory of having read it.
I who write this have perhaps this desire, and perhaps those who will read it Now we have some hope of making progress. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. They offer to give up their lives so that we can be free. It is, remarkably, their gift to us. And all they ask for in return is that we never send them into harm's way unless it is absolutely necessary.
Will they ever trust us again? Diplomats tell lies to journalists and then believe what they read. I could'a had class. I could'a been a contender. When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume, among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Or else as if the world were wholly fair, but that these eyes of men are dense and dim, and have not power to see it as it is: perchance, because we see not to the close I know it sounds nonsense, but, I mean, you can't just say there is no such thing. The Might is there, in the bad half of people, and you can't neglect it. You can't cut it out but you might be able to direct it, if you see what I mean, so that it was useful instead of bad. White in The Once and Future King You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at you!
Not a Pax Americana enforced on the world by American weapons of war. Not the peace of the grave or the security of the slave. I am talking about genuine peace, the kind of peace that makes life on earth worth living, the kind that enables men and nations to grow and to hope and to build a better life for their children — not merely peace for Americans but peace for all men and women — not merely peace in our time but peace for all time.
Kennedy Moderate strength is shown in violence, supreme strength is shown in levity. Chesterton Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone. For this brave old earth must borrow its mirth, But has trouble enough of its own. He is satisfied with that, for he sees that he was not mistaken and that he only failed to see all sides.
To know is not to be wise. Many men know a great deal, and are all the greater fools for it. There is no fool so great a fool as a knowing fool. But to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom. Spurgeon It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro' narrow chinks of his cavern. It is part and parcel of our knowledge and obscures our insight only when it holds that the understanding given by it is the only kind there is.
I don't know when — but just saying it could even make it happen. It is also commonly translated as " Called or uncalled, God is present. All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts For too long we have gotten by in a society that says the only thing right is to get by and the only thing wrong is to get caught.
Character is doing what's right when nobody is looking Watts A man should be upright, not kept upright. Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. It is not only more effective; it is also vastly more intelligent. Mencken No man who has once heartily and wholly laughed can be altogether irreclaimably bad.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. When it is looked upon as vulgar, it will cease to be popular. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassions, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen. Because I remember, I have the duty to reject despair. September There is no sudden entrance into Heaven. Slow is the ascent by the path of Love. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them.
That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be. I know it's crazy. Salinger in The Catcher in the Rye The silence often of pure innocence persuades when speaking fails. I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved.
I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. The beggar, on the other hand, falls to his knees at the drop of a hat and scrapes the floor to anyone he deems to be higher; but at the same time, he demands that someone lower than him scrape the floor for him.
There is all the difference in the world. It is impossible to say what that possibility is. I think it has something to do with the energy of love Something in him so loves the world that he gives himself to the laws of gravity and chance.
Ubuy Oman Online Shopping For doll making in Affordable Prices.
Far from flying with the angels, he traces with the fidelity of a seismograph needle the state of the solid bloody landscape. His house is dangerous and finite, but he is at home in the world. He can love the shape of human beings, the fine and twisted shapes of the heart. It is good to have among us such men, such balancing monsters of love.
Wells At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity, human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity, idealism, dogmatism and proselytizing zeal on behalf of religious or political idols. A hard cold wisdom is required, too, for goodness to accomplish good. Goodness without wisdom invariably accomplishes evil. It seems to be derived from this statement attributed to a specific author: Those people who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do.
It may be important to great thinkers to examine the world, to explain and despise it. But I think it is only important to love the world, not to despise it, not for us to hate each other, but to be able to regard the world and ourselves and all beings with love, admiration and respect. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful.
We must each respect others even as we respect ourselves. I just have something inside me that tells me that there is a problem, and I have got to do something about it. I think that is what I would call the God in me. All of us have a God in us, and that God is the spirit that unites all life, everything that is on this planet. Or do not. There is no try. They're quite aware of what they're going through If that is granted, all else follows. You've just got to keep the faith. The game is not over until the last out. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, how you can still come out of it.
I'm against the misuse of God. Huxley We're just being ourselves and having fun playing baseball. The biggest thing is when people look at our team, they can see that we're having a lot of fun. The paths are not to be found, but made, and the activity of making them, changes both the maker and the destination. November The progress of the intellect is to the clearer vision of causes, which neglects surface differences.
To the poet, to the philosopher, to the saint, all things are friendly and sacred, all events profitable, all days holy, all men divine. It places me on a far higher plane than any politician. Bush The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that you've got it made. It was during that minute in nineteen hundred and eighteen, that millions upon millions of human beings stopped butchering one another.
I have talked to old men who were on battlefields during that minute. They have told me in one way or another that the sudden silence was the Voice of God. So we still have among us some men who can remember when God spoke clearly to mankind. Silence is deep as Eternity; speech is shallow as Time. Anyone who believes in God and the Last Day should entertain his guest generously. And anyone who believes in God and the Last Day should say what is good or keep quiet. There must merely be the silent observation of a fact.
Krishnamurti Every now and then a clear harmonic cry gave new suggestions of a tune that would someday be the only tune in the world and would raise men's souls to joy. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortunes; but great minds rise above them. When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision. A person can almost be defined by his or her attitude toward gratitude. My optimism, then, does not rest on the absence of evil, but on a glad belief in the preponderance of good and a willing effort always to cooperate with the good, that it may prevail.
For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are barely able to endure and are awed because it serenely disdains to annihilate us. Each single angel is terrifying. I am more awed by those who struggle to make one small difference after another. How lovely that everyone, great and small, can make their contribution toward introducing justice straightaway And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!
One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Chesterton From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring, Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king. The Tree that was withered shall be renewed, and he shall plant it in the high places, and the City shall be blessed. Sing all ye people! In the winter season, for seven days of calm, Alcyone broods over her nest on the surface of the waters while the sea-waves are quiet.
When everything is lost, and all seems darkness, then comes the new life and all that is needed. Dance, then, wherever you may be, I am the Lord of the Dance, said he, And I'll lead you all, wherever you may be, And I'll lead you all in the Dance, said he. Don't you know that? Don't you know that goddam secret yet? And don't you know — listen to me, now — don't you know who that Fat Lady really is?
Ah, buddy. It's Christ Himself. Christ Himself, buddy. Salinger Shall we make a new rule of life from tonight — always to try to be a little kinder than is necessary? Barrie Wikiqoute Quote of the day for the th anniversary of the first public performance of Peter Pan. Physics isn't the most important thing. Love is. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were.
I must not fail to do the something that I can do. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise with the occasion. As our case is new, so we must think anew and act anew. Kennedy The best things in life are nearest: Breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of right just before you. Then do not grasp at the stars, but do life's plain, common work as it comes, certain that daily duties and daily bread are the sweetest things in life.
It would be as rational to knock yourself on the head because you differ from yourself ten years ago. If we win here we will win everywhere. The world is a fine place and worth the fighting for and I hate very much to leave it. The danger is not that a particular class is unfit to govern. Every class is unfit to govern. The law of liberty tends to abolish the reign of race over race, of faith over faith, of class over class. The truth is this: The march of Providence is so slow, and our desires so impatient; the work of progress is so immense and our means of aiding it so feeble; the life of humanity is so long, that of the individual so brief, that we often see only the ebb of the advancing wave and are thus discouraged.
It is history that teaches us to hope. Lee The survival of liberty in our land increasingly depends on the success of liberty in other lands.

No one has any right, nor any preference to claim over another. You are brothers. Give me a place to stand, and I shall move the world. The Master has no possessions. The more he does for others, the happier he is. The more he gives to others, the wealthier he is. The Tao nourishes by not forcing. By not dominating, the Master leads. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.
More specifically, everybody — including me — has some important pieces of the truth, and all of those pieces need to be honored, cherished, and included in a more gracious, spacious, and compassionate embrace. Wells Our ideals, laws and customs should be based on the proposition that each generation, in turn, becomes the custodian rather than the absolute owner of our resources and each generation has the obligation to pass this inheritance on to the future.
In that purer light, people will come to see themselves in each other, which is to say they will make themselves known to one another by their similarities rather than by their differences. Man's knowledge of things will begin to be matched by man's knowledge of self.
The significance of a smaller world will be measured not in terms of military advantage, but in terms of advantage for the human community.

It will be the triumph of the heartbeat over the drumbeat. There is only an up or down — up to a man's age-old dream; the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order — or down to the ant heap totalitarianism, and regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course. Heinlein in Stranger in a Strange Land All truths are easy to understand once they are discovered; the point is to discover them.
For she enfolds and imparts herself even unto the smallest beings. Without her presence nothing would have being, because she is the essence of the existence of the first unto the last being. I am aware that a philosopher's ideas are not subject to the judgement of ordinary persons, because it is his endeavor to seek the truth in all things, to the extent permitted to human reason by God.
Yet I hold that completely erroneous views should be shunned. To me there is nothing in it, beyond the lustre which may be reflected from its connection with a power of promoting human felicity. Thompson We think basically you watch television to turn your brain off, and you work on your computer when you want to turn your brain on. Little darling, It seems like years since it's been clear. Here comes the sun Here comes the sun, And I say It's alright. Our aim must be to diminish the number of the latter and increase the number of the former.
That is why we demand education and knowledge. In the endless war against weakness and despair, these are the bright rally-flags of hope and of emulation. I hold that a writer who does not passionately believe in the perfectibility of man, has no dedication nor any membership in literature. This happens to us all the time with computers, and nobody thinks of complaining. Seuss Leave the beaten track behind occasionally and dive into the woods. Every time you do you will be certain to find something you have never seen before.
When I orbited the Earth in a spaceship, I saw for the first time how beautiful our planet is. Mankind, let us preserve and increase this beauty, and not destroy it! I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down. But the striving frees us from the bonds of the self and makes us comrades of those who are the best and the greatest. But I might instead try to help deal with the world's larger problems.
Standing up to an evil system is exhilarating, and now I have a taste for it. To be sane is, to a great extent, to be sociable. They should also govern it. If they say to you, 'It is in the sea,' then the fish will precede you. Rather, the Kingdom is inside of you, and it is outside of you. When you come to know yourselves, then you will become known, and you will realize that it is you who are the sons of the living Father.
But if you will not know yourselves, you dwell in poverty and it is you who are that poverty. For nothing hidden will not become manifest, and nothing covered will remain without being uncovered. Artists must never betray their true hearts. Artists must look beneath the surface and show that there is more to this world than what meets the eye. Yet, as Genesis has it, all men and women are entrusted with the task of crafting their own life: in a certain sense, they are to make of it a work of art, a masterpiece.
When we come to it We must confess that we are the possible We are the miraculous, the true wonders of this world That is when, and only when We come to it. I sit in my hotel at night and think of something that's funny and then I go get a pen and write 'em down. Or, if the pen's too far away, I have to convince myself that what I thought of ain't funny. At the center humankind struggles with collective powers for its freedom, the individual struggles with dehumanization for the possession of his soul.
It is important to remember, as has well been said, 'the essential characteristic of true liberty is that under its shelter many different types of life and character and opinion and belief can develop unmolested and unobstructed'.

I do not add "within the limits of the law" because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual. These are miracles And the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful, but we have lost the way. We have developed speed, but we have shut ourselves in. Machinery that gives abundance has left us in want. Our knowledge has made us cynical. Our cleverness, hard and unkind. We think too much and feel too little. More than machinery we need humanity. More than cleverness we need kindness and gentleness.
Without these qualities, life will be violent and all will be lost. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.
It is like a great dynamic sun in the center of a solar system which sends out its rays and inspiration in every direction Music makes us feel that the heavens open and a divine voice calls. Something in our souls responds and understands. The fact that the Lord can work and act even with insufficient means consoles me, and above all I entrust myself to your prayers.
No one can eliminate prejudices — just recognize them. Murrow If people did not sometimes do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done. When I have clarified and exhausted a subject, then I turn away from it, in order to go into darkness again. Barrie The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape.
So a man who is trying to understand violence does not belong to any country, to any religion, to any political party or partial system; he is concerned with the total understanding of mankind. Krishnamurti Were there none who were discontented with what they have, the world would never reach anything better. So I believe that dreams — day dreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing — are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to invent, and therefore to foster civilization.
Frank Baum You say that you are my judge. I don't know if you are — but take care not to judge wrongly, lest you place yourself in great danger.
