We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God.

But if the ultimate aim of the whole of science is indeed as I believe to clarify mans relationship to the universe then biology must be accorded a central position ...

Though one was as the signet upon the Lords hand yet was he plucked thence. There is no security for any soul except where love and trust repose upon the bosom of Christ.

Here in our land and in other lands many have been drifting toward a religion which says much about rights but little about duties; a religion which thinks only about humanity and little about God; which lays great stress on service but little stress on faith; which puts all the emphasis on man and his power and very little on God and His power.

I believe that almost all important useful ideas are simple. Peter Whittle has recently put it nicely in an autobiographical essay. If a piece of work is heavy and complicated then it is wrong. ... Some writers feel that to express their ideas in simple terms is degrading. Some use complexity to disguise the paucity of their material. In fact simplicity is a virtue and when as here it is both original and useful it can represent a real advance in knowledge.

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life. 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....

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....

We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? The day is almost over and its toiling time is through. Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you? Can you say tonight in parting with the day thats slipping fast That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does the man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do You that that GOD will say You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why while others ships sail on Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

But when I compute the unfailing greatness of spirit and the tenacity of benevolence that it must have taken to achieve this result I am taken with an immense respect for that old and unlearned peasant who was able to complete a work worthy of God.

The Humanist lives as if this world were all and enough. He is not otherworldly. He holds that the time spent on the contemplation of a possible afterlife is time wasted. He fears no hell and seeks no heaven save that which he and others created on earth. He willingly accepts the world that exists on this side of the grave as the place for moral struggle and creative living. He seeks the life abundant for his neighbour as for himself. He is content to live one world at a time and let the next life if such there may be take care of itself. He need not deny immortality; he simply is not interested. His interests are here.

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.

On the contrary and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites.

Even fairly good students when they have obtained the solution of the problem and written down neatly the argument shut their books and look for something else. Doing so they miss an important and instructive phase of the work.... A good teacher should understand and impress on his students the view that no problem whatever is completely exhausted. One of the first and foremost duties of the teacher is not to give his students the impression that mathematical problems have little connection with each other and no connection at all with anything else. We have a natural opportunity to investigate the connections of a problem when looking back at its solution.

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.

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.

Undue emphasis on the static structure of the Church has led to the disappearance of a significant lay ministry in denominational Protestantism.

The schoolboy wandring through the wood To pull the primrose gay Starts the new voice of Spring to hear And imitates thy lay. What time the pea puts on the bloom Thou flist thy vocal vale An annual guest in other lands Another Spring to hail.

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.

The quest for this unwearied peace is constant and universal.

Grown men do not pray for vain trifles. When they lift up their hearts and voices in the valley of tears they ask for strength and courage and understanding.

Some time ago a member of my family sent to me a critical article written by Mr. Edmund Fuller in a publication called Saturday Review. The criticism of the writer is directed against the effort made to satisfy what the author designates as general religious hunger with books articles and public appearances of nationally advertised individuals carrying on a propaganda for what is characterized as (these are quotes) the good life peace of mind positive thinking and successful or confident living. What the author objects to most strenuously is not so much that propaganda should be issued for the optimism of peace of mind and positive thinking but that this psychological optimism should be held out in any form as an interpretation of or a substitute for the real Christian religion.

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.

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.

The Constitution in addition to delegating certain enumerated powers to Congress places whole areas outside the reach of Congress' regulatory authority. The First Amendment for example is fittingly celebrated for preventing Congress from prohibiting the free exercise of religion or abridging the freedom of speech. The Second Amendment similarly appears to contain an express limitation on the government's authority....This Court has not had recent occasion to consider the nature of the substantive right safeguarded by the Second Amendment. If however the Second Amendment is read to confer a personal right to keep and bear arms a colorable argument exists that the Federal Government's regulatory scheme at least as it pertains to the purely intrastate sale or possession of firearms runs afoul of that Amendment's protections.

A self-made man if he is made at all has already won the battle of life.... he has learned to resist. He has learned the value of money and how to refuse to spend it. He has learned the value of time and how the conversion of it into useful things will make of his life something worthwhile. He has learned to say no to say no at the right time and then to stand by it. Without resistance and the self-denial which it often imposes there is no real happiness. In the quest for happiness man must learn that temptation resisted strengthens the mind and the soul.

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.

But if we continue in the path that is marked out for us by divine instruction trusting implicitly in God then shall we be delivered from all impending evils that are sought to be brought upon us no matter what they may be; and the nearer we live to God the greater will be the blessings showered upon us and seeming evils will be changed to blessings of untold worth.

...[E.H.] Moore ws presenting a paper on a highly technical topic to a large gathering of faculty and graduate students from all parts of the country.

He stopped and re-examined the doubtful step for several minutes and then convinced of the error he abruptly dismissed the meeting -- to the astonishment of most of the audience. It was an evidence of intellectual courage as well as honesty and doubtless won for him the supreme admiration of every person in the group -- an admiration which was in no wise diminished but rather increased when at a later meeting he announced that after all he had been able to prove the step to be correct.

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.

So long as you live and in whatever circumstances the kaleidoscope of life may place you think for yourself and act in accordance with the conclusions of that thinking; avoid so far as possible drifting with the current of the mob or being too easily influenced by the outward manifestation of things. Take your own look beneath the surface and don't trust others to look for you. If you will follow this rule consistently I am sure you will keep out of much trouble will make the most out of your life and what is more will contribute most of value to the community life.

An executive cannot gradually dismiss details. Business is made up of details and I notice that the chief executive who dismisses them is quite likely to dismiss his business. Success is the sum of detail. It might perhaps be pleasing to imagine oneself beyond detail and engaged only in great things but as I have often observed if one attends only to great things and lets the little things pass the great things become little; that is the business shrinks. It is not possible for an executive to hold himself aloof from anything. No business no matter what its size can be called safe until it has been forced to learn economy and rigidly to measure values of men and materials.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

One can get lost in their garden and the rest of the world ceases to exist if only for a while. Anger disipates with every shovel of dirt moved pleasure is found in the simplest forms excitement is felt as each tiny plant matures and then triumph with the harvest of the first tomato of the season. The love of gardening never goes away. Even if someone is unable to garden themselves they enjoy the gardens of others.

For me the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity.

A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.

Still others make gardens because it is part of a full life. To live happily they must invest their hours and aspirations in the activities of another world. And they draw the interest of delight and refreshment according to the measure of their investment. These are usually quaint folk other-worldly in their manner but capable of comprehending the idiosyncrasies of Nature as she displays them in a tree and bush and passing season across the skyline and in the infinite zenith. These moreover are the successful gardeners.

The world was young the mountains green No stain yet on the Moon was seen No words were laid on stream or stone When Durin woke and walked alone. He named the nameless hills and dells; He drank from yet untasted wells; He stooped and looked in Mirrormere And saw a crown of stars appear; As gems upon a silver thread; Above the shadow of his head. The world is grey the mountains old The forge's fire is ashen-cold; No harp is wrung no hammer falls: The darkness dwells in Durin's halls; The shadow lies upon his tomb In Moria in Khazad-dûm. But still the sunken stars appear In dark and windless Mirrormere; There lies his crown in water deep Till Durin wakes again from his sleep.

The Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking.... Americans are unhappy with their lot. They are feeling insecure layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain. Stirred up by talk radio the theory goes large numbers of formerly sensible people have embraced hate and extremism. Most of these according to the media are white guys. A Washington Post/ABC pre-election poll asked voters if they were angry about the way the federal government works. Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994 a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly there isnt single article decrying angry white females.

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.

In his enthusiasm the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual but through individuals living together as one body each supplying the deficiencies of the others.

Finally when the top is reached one stands examining the peak taking in the view of the surrounding countrysideand then noting the automobile road up the other side!

Whence Comes This Rush of Wings? Whence comes this rush of wings afar Following straight the Noël star? Birds from the woods in wondrous flight Bethlehem seek this Holy Night. Tell us ye birds why come ye here Into this stable poor and drear? Hastning we seek the new-loom King And all our sweetest music bring. Hark! how the greenfinch bears his part Philomel too with tender heart Chants from her leafy dark retreat Re mi fa sol in accents sweet. Angels and shepherds birds of the sky Come where the Son of God cloth lie; Christ on earth with man cloth dwell Join in the shout Noël Noël!

I have now reigned above fifty years in victory and peace beloved by my subjects dreaded by my enemies and respected by my allies. Riches and honors power and pleasure have waited on my call nor does any earthly blessing appear to be wanting for my felicity. In this situation I have diligently numbered the days of pure and genuine happiness which have fallen to my lot: they amount to fourteen. O man place not thy confidence in this present world!

Winter Song The browns the olives and the yellows died And were swept up to heaven; where they glowed Each dawn and set of sun till Christmastide And when the land lay pale for them pale-snowed Fell back and down the snow-drifts flamed and flowed. From off your face into the winds of winter The sun-brown and the summer-gold are blowing; But they shall gleam with spiritual glinter When paler beauty on your brows falls snowing And through those snows my looks shall be soft-going.
