Its not fear of striking out that makes me reluctant to step up to the plate.

So no its not the fear of striking out that keeps me from stepping up to the plate.

Of conditions at Valley Forge Pennsylvania a certain Dr. Albigence Waldo wrote: Poor food hard lodging cold weather fatigue nasty clothes nasty cookery vomit half my time smoked out of my senses the devils in it I cant endure it.

Theres a touch of the priesthood in the academic world a sense that a scholar should not be distracted by the mundane tasks of day-to-day living. I used to have great stretches of time to work. Now I have research thoughts while making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Sure its impossible to write down ideas while reading curious George to a two-year-old. On the other hand as my husband was leaving graduate school for his first job his thesis advisor told him You may wonder how a professor gets any research done when one has to teach advise students serve on committees referee papers write letters of recommendation interview prospective faculty. Well I take long showers.

My God my Father while I stray Far from home on lifes rough way O teach me from my heart to say Thy will be done. Though dark my path and sad my lot Let me be still and murmur not; But breathe the prayer divinely taught Thy will be done. What though in lonely grief I sigh For friends beloved no longer nigh Submissive still would I reply Thy will be done. If thou shouldst call me to resign What most I prizeit neer was mine I only yield Thee what was Thine; Thy will be done. If but my fainting heart be blest With thy sweet spirit for its guest My God to Thee I leave the rest; Thy will be done. Renew my will from day to day; Blend it with Thine and take away All that now makes it hard to say Thy will be done.

Our way of living together in America is a strong but delicate fabric. It is made up of many threads. It has been woven over many centuries by the patience and sacrifice of countless liberty-loving men and women.

For no man knows once it is destroyed where or when man will find its protective warmth again.

Sigmund Freud   Category: Unsorted

I am a romantic but I do put up a barrier around myself so it is hard for people to get in and to know the real me. I fall in love much too quickly and that results in me getting badly hurt. The problem with love is that you lose control and that is a very vulnerable state to be in. I would love to really have a beautiful relationship with somebody but it never seems to work out. What I would like most of all is to be in a state of blissful love.

Anne Greenwood   Category: Unsorted

The world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are frightened and look for failure and poverty you will get them no matter how hard you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself in what life will do for you cuts you off from the good things of the world. Expect victory and you make victory. Nowhere is this truer than in business life where bravery and faith bring both material and spiritual rewards.

Give them all that can be given fairly on the principle that to him that giveth shall be given. Remember always that the recollection of quality remains long after the price is forgotten. Then your business will prosper by a natural process.

Many love music but for musics sake Many because her touches can awake Thoughts that repose within the breast half-dead And rise to follow where she loves to lead. What various feelings come from days gone by! What tears from far-off sources dim the eye! Few when light fingers with sweet voices play And melodies swell pause and melt away Mind how at every touch at every tone A spark of life hath glistened and hath gone.

Oh how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above. Bees were humming Sweet birds Singing Music ringing through the grove. When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love. Humbly kneeling sweet appealing `Twas the boys first uttered prayer When the powers of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair; But undaunted still he trusted In his heavnly Fathers care. Suddenly a light descended. Brighter far than noon-day sun And a shining glorious pillar Oer him fell around him shone. While appeared two heavnly beings God the Father and the Son. `Joseph this is my beloved; Hear Him! Oh how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered And he listened to the Lord. Oh what rapture filled his bosom For he saw the living God.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.
Max Ehrmann   Category: Unsorted

We are lonely even in the milling crowds of a city where we may only be recognized as customers for goods and services. Our personalities are weakened and starved by the impersonal life in a city. That is why there is so much wreckage in a city. Our families answer this need to some degree but not completely. And so in the last analysis it is only God who can give us the comfort of utter understanding.

While doing relief work in India I met Abdul. He was old crippled and blind. He had been a college professor and spoke perfect English. His mind was sharp and clear and he taught me much about India. Near the end of my stay I asked Abdul what could I pray for for you? A smile illuminated his face and he sighed Sister I don't know I have everything. I stood dumbfounded.

We should all be very careful when we say no to a suggested improvement or plan made by a subordinate. A no in most cases is final. We are usually more careful when we say yes because we know that our yes decisions will have to stand the test of performance or further approval. As a matter of fact we should be more careful with our noes for the very reason that they do not have to stand the test of performance or further approval.

The world of biology is full of miracles but nothing I have seen is as miraculous as the metamorphosis of the monarch caterpillar. Her brain is a speck of neural tissue a few millimeters long about a million times smaller than a human brain. With this almost microscopic clump of nerve cells she knows how to manage her new legs and wings to walk and to fly to find her way by some unknown means of navigation over thousands of miles from Massachusetts to Mexico. How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

(On the temperature of water in wells) The reason why the water in wells becomes colder in summer is that the earth is then rarefied by the heat and releases into the air all the heat-particles it happens to have. So the more the earth is drained of heat the colder becomes the moisture that is concealed in the ground. On the other hand when all the earth condenses and contracts and congeals with the cold then of course as it contracts it squeezes out into the wells whatever heat it holds.

As stewards of God we must be truly appreciative of the things we receive. One has said that Ingratitude is a crime more despicable than revenge which is only returning evil for evil while ingratitude returns evil for good. You remember that of the ten lepers healed by Christ only one returned to give thanks. A beautiful legend tells the story of two angels that were sent forth throughout the land each given a basket one to gather up requests and the other thanksgivings. The angel of requests came back with her basket running over full. The angel of thanksgivings came back with her basket practically empty. So it is in life. It seems that all have requests to make but few of us think to return and give thanks.

One can adjust for the political slanting of the news but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.

Two years later this eighteenth-century French mathematician and astronomer hinted with admirable prescience at the role of genetics in evolution: The elementary particles which form the embryo are each drawn from the corresponding structure in the parent and conserve a sort of remembrance of their previous form so that in the offspring they will reflect and reproduce a resemblance to the parents ... We can thus readily explain how new species are formed... by supposing that the elementary particles may not always retain the order which they present in the parents but may fortuitously produce differences which multiplying and accumulating have resulted in the infinite variety of species which we see at the present time.

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years a number of companies in a wide range of industries from airlines to steel computers to hotels have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers good hires from bad and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring they believe is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

Mathematics is not only real but it is the only reality. That is that entire universe is made of matter obviously. And matter is made of particles. Its made of electrons and neutrons and protons. So the entire universe is made out of particles. Now what are the particles made out of? Theyre not made out of anything. The only thing you can say about the reality of an electron is to cite its mathematical properties. So theres a sense in which matter has completely dissolved and what is left is just a mathematical structure.

Somewhere theres music how faint the tune.... Some tribal cultures believe that the act of creation takes place through music. They literally sing their homes their villages and their valleys into existence. They keep them strong and real regularly and ritually through music and belief. Its a little like prayer isnt it? Somewhere in the world someone is chanting their own universe into being right now. We modern folk are not so different from this. We speak of being in tune of needing harmony and rhythm to feel complete and alive. We create our own realities with our words and our songs our eyes and our hands. Each world is defined by our own outline the envelope of skin and nerves and light and air we inhabit. Every time we push against something we feel ourselves.

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true.

Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive. Yet I wish to see all unjust and unnecessary discriminations everywhere abolished and that the time may come when all our inhabitants of every color and discrimination shall be free and equal partakers of our political liberties.

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not most of us choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed. In the end forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

Finally a new set of barbarians smash everything apart and destroy the status quo so that the process must start all over again.

There can be no freedom of the individual no democracy without the capital system the profit system the private enterprise system. These are in the end inseparable.

For a community of men without property and without the hope of getting it by honest effort is a community of slaves of a despotic State.

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

Music the universal language of mankind is also a form of beauty at its best. As language differs among peoples so does the language of music differ with time place background and experience; but if it is true music it strikes a responsive chord. In a Japanese home at Christmas-time I was the only person in the group who spoke English. Yet ways of communication were found. Thinking of home I hummed softly to myself Silent Night. To my surprise the French guest the German guest and the Japanese family joined in singing the universally inspiring Christmas song each in his own language yet in the same language the language of the heart.

Paul Tillich can show us that the unity which we seek as Christians must involve our denominations in changes even greater than those which many of us now expect. His insistence on taking seriously the gropings of all men for the truth about their lives must be allowed to remind the ecumenical movement that the word oikoumene is Greek not for the Church but for the whole inhabited world. The ecumenical movement is more than Christian patriarchs kissing. Christian unity means the unity of mankind in finding and obeying God. Tillich can teach us that the Church must not shut its door to celebrate a family reunion while a single child of God remains outside.

When the mathematician says that such and such a proposition is true of one thing it may be interesting and it is surely safe. But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything though it is much more interesting it is also much more dangerous. In the transition from one to all from the specific to the general mathematics has made its greatest progress and suffered its most serious setbacks of which the logical paradoxes constitute the most important part. For if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently it must first set its affairs in order at home.

The paleontological evidence before us today clearly demonstrates ordered progressive change with the successive development of new faunal and floral assemblages through the changing epochs of our earths history. There should be no real conflict between science which is the search for truth and Christs teachings which I hold to be truth itself. It is only when scientists remove God from creation that the Christian is faced with an irreconcilable situation.

Will corporal punishment help restrain criminal behavior? Some well-intentioned experts say no. But one group that disagrees with these experts is the criminals themselves. Criminals know that punishment works and they use it every day all over America. Criminals demand absolute obedience and if corporal punishment doesnt work then they will use capital punishment for they know that the fear of death is the best deterrent for disobedience. Even the experts tell us that when being attacked by a criminal obey him because to resist may bring even more punishment. So does punishment work? It sure does. The problem is the wrong people are being punished.

God will take care of tomorrow With him each tomorrow must rest And we hold this a sure conviction When we give each today our best!

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

We know so well what the unique quality was that held this great and beautiful pride and exquisite humility together. It lay in the relationship he held with God. We know the familiar idea of Jesus oneness with God: only we deal with it too much as a doctrine of the Church not as an element in Jesus own experience. If we never find it in reality in life we cannot reveal the true Christlike character at all we will always be trying earnestly to be something but on too superficial and obvious a plane.

When indignation takes possession of his mind and it is easily excited his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings he regains the humanity which he had lost from the immediate impulse of provocation and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions from good to evil from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies as a blessing placed beyond his attainment which he regrets.

True it is that many find some of the speech on the Internet to be offensive and amid the din of cyberspace many hear discordant voices that they regard as indecent. The absence of governmental regulation of Internet content has unquestionably produced a kind of chaos but as one of plaintiffs' experts put it with such resonance at the hearing: What achieved success was the very chaos that the Internet is. The strength of the Internet is that chaos. Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects. For these reasons I without hesitation hold that the [Communications Decency Act] is unconstitutional on its face.

Maturity is not equated with independence though it includes a certain capacity for independence...The independence of the mature person is simply that he does not collapse when he has to stand alone. It is not an independence of needs for other persons with whom to have relationship: that would not be desired by the mature.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

Organismic awareness is what we on the Ego Level ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is nonsymbolic nonconceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the nondual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isnt about analysing stories if it was I wouldnt be like this. Stories novels whatever ... reflect something about the writer ... and the culture ... and the society that it came from. Its a mirror a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right when we just get it we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly we know the right decision to make.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears. Bears are one of the places in the world where big mysteries run close to the surface.

There are six things that keep us going. First the instinct to live which we apparently have no part in making or deciding about. Second group consciousness and the desire that we have to win the approbation of our fellows within the group. Third the various interests that we may find in life such as religion or art or some such other branch of esthetics. Fourth in our climate the habit of work. Fifth the sheer joy of physical life that we find in hours of well-earned recreation after hard work games fishing tramping the hills a good book before an open fire. Sixth and most important the general feeling that we have that there is some abstract goodness or rightness in the world with which we may cooperate in making the world a fine place for a splendid race of men women and children to live in.

First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in anothers life it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress as the world grows better for there is no progress without ideals....

Who made you? a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then measuring the length of a baby with his hands replied: God made me this long and I growed the rest. The mistake that was his in leaving out God in his growth suggests the truth that we are partly self-made men. God and parenthood and birthplace partly make us but we must make the rest by will and work.

In the late 1600s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were side by side in the Italian village of Cremona. First were the Amatis and outside their shop hung a sign: The best violins in all Italy. Not to be outdone their next-door neighbors the family Guarnerius hung a bolder sign proclaiming: The Best Violins In All The World! At the end of the street was the workshop of Anton Stradivarius and on its front door was a simple notice which read: The best violins on the block.

In his capacity as an American citizen each man of our Craft will do what seems to him wise and just and right and to the best interest of his country; but let us hope and pray that no echo of angry debate may be heard in any Lodge of Masons ... lest we injure what is priceless.... By the same token the men who stand out in our history to whom we pay the highest homage are the men of personality principle and ideals who combining sympathy and good will with unbending loyalty to great truths defied the cynical spirit and wrought disinterestedly for the common good. By as much as Masonry creates such men and endows them with moral ideals by so much does it render its highest service to the country and the Craft.

It is true that when we take chances we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

Most of our conflicts and difficulties come from trying to deal with the spiritual and practical aspects of our life separately instead of realizing them as parts of one whole. If our practical life is centered on our own interests cluttered up by possessions distracted by ambitions passions wants and worries beset by a sense of our own rights and importance or anxieties for our own future or longings for our own success we need not expect that our spiritual life will be a contrast to all this. The souls house is not built on such a convenient plan; there are few soundproof partitions in it. Only when the conviction not merely the idea that the demand of the Spirit however inconvenient rules the whole of it will those objectionable noises die down which have a way of penetrating into the nicely furnished little oratory and drowning all the quieter voices by their din.

It is my strong contention that there is an infinitely higher thrill which like climbing a mountain or singing a beautiful song once experienced never stops begging to be repeated. That thrill has its beginnings in the private and personal discovery of revealed truth the universal laws by which God is governed and by which he governs. It has its development in private and personal decisions to test that law through acts of faith followed by effort. And the consummation of that thrill comes in watching and indeed experiencing body and soul the miraculous unfolding of events as they proceed by methods far beyond our feeble capacities to dream of.

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. Worse its pacing is erratic. Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length while others stretch into volumes. Life for all its raw talent has little sense of structure. It creates amazing textures but it cant be counted on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed in many cases no ending is provided at all.

Not now but in the coming years It may be in the better land Well read the meaning of our tears And then ah then well understand. Well catch the broken threads again And finish what we here began; Heaven will the mysteries explain And then ah then well understand. Well know why clouds instead of sun Were over many a cherished plan Why song has ceased when scarce begun; Tis there sometime well understand. Why what we long for most of all Eludes so oft our eager hand Why hopes are crushed and castles fall Up there sometime well understand. God knows the way; he holds the key; He guides us with unerring hand; Sometimes with tearless eyes well see Yes there up there well understand. Then trust in God through all thy days; Fear not for he cloth hold thy hand; Though dark thy way still sing and praise Sometime sometime well understand.

When oxygen and hydrogen find one another their joining produces fiery passion. Out of this fire water is born.

The hydrogen atoms are not owned by any particular oxygen atom. Water is a substance very much in love with itself and the atoms connect in webs and clusters where oxygen shares around the hydrogen atoms freely a fluid situation indeed.

Over the last decade or so wars have been proclaimed in turn on teen pregnancy dropping out drugs and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns though is that they come too late after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such wars what we need is to follow the logic of prevention offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates.

You harness those beliefs and develop them with a greater degree of self-awareness. Thats the kind of response people should have instead of rejecting technology.

This same basic law also applies to spiritual and intellectual growth and can be achieved only by continual nourishment and effort in day-to-day living.

The hills have been high for man's mounting The woods have been dense for his axe The stars have been thick for his counting The sands have been wide for his tracks. The sea has been deep for his diving The poles have been broad for his sway But bravely he's proved in his striving That Where there's a will there's a way.

To trace the history of a river or a raindrop as John Muir would have done is also to trace the history of the soul the history of the mind descending and arising in the body. In both we constantly seek and stumble on divinity which like the cornice feeding the lake and the spring becoming a waterfall feeds spills falls and feeds itself over and over again.

In questions of this sort there are two things to be observed. First that the truth of the Scriptures be inviolably maintained. Secondly since Scripture doth admit of diverse interpretations that no one cling to any particular exposition with such pertinacity that if what he supposed to be the teaching of Scripture should afterward turn out to be clearly false he should nevertheless still presume to put it forward lest thereby the sacred Scriptures should be exposed to the derision of unbelievers and the way of salvation should be closed to them.

We have a system which though far from perfect is strong with idealism. It gives elbow room for men of all races and all beliefs. It is vital and dynamic. And it works. We have the means of shaping the world in our pattern. If we do freedom will be assured for all men. The decision is in the hands of this generation. It is a challenge to our political competence. For Western civilization it is the greatest challenge of all time.
