Any book about gardens written for the pleasure of writing must have its sources in dreams. The visions of gardens beautiful and retired hover before the imagination and no real garden however humble but is invested in celestial light of cherished hopes of what it may become in fragrant flowers or what it might have been had fortune been kind.

Sir Charles Percy Snow   Category: Unsorted

The main duty of the historian of mathematics as well as his fondest privilege is to explain the humanity of mathematics to illustrate its greatness beauty and dignity and to describe how the incessant efforts and accumulated genius of many generations have built up that magnificent monument the object of our most legitimate pride as men and of our wonder humility and thankfulness as individuals. The study of the history of mathematics will not make better mathematicians but gentler ones it will enrich their minds mellow their hearts and bring out their finer qualities.

Of course we knew that the official reports were sketchy if not falsified. But in terms of information theory this is precisely where the problem lay: How were we to reconstruct reality from incomplete or false reports? It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false. On the contrary most news is completely correct albeit tendentiously slanded; it is just that certain information is suppressed. One can adjust for the political slanting of the news but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.
Konrad Zuse   Category: Unsorted

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe   Category: Unsorted

All true educators since the time of Socrates and Plato have agreed that the primary object of education is the attainment of inner harmony or to put it into more up-to-date language the integration of the personality. Without such an integration learning is no more than a collection of scraps and the accumulation of knowledge becomes a danger to mental health.

John C. Brobston   Category: Unsorted

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.

The best way to garden is to put on a wide–brimmed straw hat and some old clothes. And with a hoe in one hand and a cold drink in the other tell somebody else where to dig.
Texas Bix Bender   Category: Unsorted

The belief in a political Utopia is especially dangerous. This is possibly connected with the fact that the search for a better world like the investigation of our environment is (if I am correct) one of the oldest and most important of all the instincts.

... every tree near our house had a name of its own and a special identity.

We saw the strong trees struggle and their plumes do down The poplar bend and whip back till it split to fall The elm tear up at the root and topple like a crown The pine crack at the base - we had to watch them all. The ash the lovely cedar. We had to watch them fall. They went so softly under the loud flails of air Before that fury they went down like feathers With all the hundred springs that flowered in their hair and all the years endured in all the weathers - To fall as if they were nothing as if they were feathers.

Edward O. Wilson   Category: Unsorted

The Servant Messiah carries out his ministry in the lives of his ministers. His life is reproduced in their lives so they also are servants. But this ministry is exercised in and towards the Church so as to enable the Church itself to carry out the ministry of the Servant. The Messiah came as a Servant; his ministers are servants; and the Church he created is a Servant-Church.

The introverted church is one which puts its own survival before its mission its own identity above its task its internal concerns before its apostolate its rituals before its ministry. Undue emphasis on the static structure of the Church has led to the disappearance of a significant lay ministry in denominational Protestantism.

Gloria Pitzer   Category: Unsorted

Make no mistake; the American Revolution was not fought to obtain freedom but to preserve the liberties that Americans already had as colonials. Independence was no conscious goal secretly nurtured in cellar or jungle by bearded conspirators but a reluctant last resort to preserve life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

On Broadway it was still bright afternoon and the gassy air was almost motionless under the leaden spokes of sunlight and sawdust footprints lay about the doorways of butcher shops and fruit stores. And the great great crowd the inexhaustible current of millions of every race and kind pouring out pressing round of every age of every genius possessors of every human secret antique and future in every face the refinement of one particular motive or essence I labor I spend I strive I design I love I cling I uphold I give way I envy I long I scorn I die I hide I want. Faster much faster than any man could make the tally. The sidewalks were wider than any causeway; the street itself was immense and it quaked and gleamed and it seemed ... to throb at the last limit of endurance.

Titus Burkhardt   Category: Unsorted

Alone thou goest forth O Lord in sacrifice to die; is this thy sorrow naught to us who pass unheeding by? Our sins not thine thou bearest Lord; make us thy sorrow feel till through our pity and our shame love answers loves appeal. This is earths darkest hour but thou dost light and life restore; then let all praise be given thee who livest evermore. Grant us with thee to suffer pain that as we share this hour thy cross may bring us to thy joy and resurrection power.
Peter Pierre Abelard   Category: Unsorted

A character standard is far more important than even a gold standard. The success of all economic systems is still dependent upon both righteous leaders and righteous people. In the last analysis our national future depends upon our national character that is whether it is spiritually or materially minded.

There is nothing like the first hot days of spring when the gardener stops wondering if its too soon to plant the dahlias and starts wondering if its too late. Even the most beautiful weather will not allay the gardeners notion (well-founded actually) that he is somehow too late too soon or that he has too much stuff going on or not enough. For the garden is the stage on which the gardener exults and agonizes out every crest and chasm of the heart.

Sometimes were not aware of things The wind chimes in a tree that sings The first snowfall that casts a spell We plod along our tired way Not seeing beauty in each day Not recognizing God at all In everything both great and small. Then suddenly He wakes us from A long sleep of ignoring Him He nudges us with trials of pain So that we see His love again. Renewed once more we are aware Of his great power everywhere - Then all the world is new and bright - We see God in a different light!
Marion Schoeberlein   Category: Unsorted

Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic. These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long as a thousand years and tower far above our mortal heads. As such they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power longevity and timelessness. An untouched forest studded with trees of all ages sizes and types is more than a mysterious magical place it is one of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand ancient and new sentinels guardians of the universal force which has manifested on the the Earth....

Pride like laudanum and other poisonous medicines is beneficial in small though injurious in large quantities. No man who is not pleased with himself even in a personal sense can please others.
Frederick Saunders   Category: Unsorted

A half century ago Herbert Wechsler could justify the legal right of deadly force self-defense in terms of the universal judgment that there is no social interest in preserving the lives of the aggressors at the cost of those of their victims. That is not a universal judgment today.

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say l am willing that my business should prosper or that my farm should yield plentifully but Ill not stir a peg. But he is no more foolish than the man who says I am willing that God should bless me abundantly but I shall not do anything toward that end myself. We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.

Perfectionism is really a manifestation of the belief that ones efforts are never good enough. Imagine: How many of the obstacles standing in your way are the product of your own imagination? What have you convinced yourself that you cant do? What limitations have you come to believe in? Your mind is very powerful and effective. Is it working for you or against you?

High up in the Rockies a small boy and his mother were visiting. One day after he had been punished the boy ran to the edge of the cliff and shouted at his mother I hate you! I hate you! Across the ravine came the echo I hate you! I hate you! Thoroughly frightened the boy ran to his mother and said . Who is that bad man over there who said 'I hate you'? Taking the boy's hand the mother led him back to the top of the cliff Now she said call out 'I love you! I love you!' Clearly and sweetly the echo came repeating his words. My boy said the mother taking him into her arms that is the law of life what you give you get in return.

Whatever you lend let it be your money and not your name. Money you may get again and if not you may contrive to do without it; name once lost you cannot get again and if you cannot contrive to do without it you had better never have been born.
Sir Henry Bulwer   Category: Unsorted

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.

When Freedom from her mountain-height Unfurled her standard to the air She tore the azure robe of night And set the stars of glory there. She mingled with its gorgeous dyes The milky baldric of the skies And striped its pure celestial white With streakings of the morning light. Flag of the free hearts hope and home! By angel hands to valour given! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet! Where breathes the foe but falls before us With Freedoms soil beneath our feet And Freedoms banner streaming oer us?

The Savior desires to save us from our inadequacies as well as our sins. Inadequacy is not the same as being sinful we have far more control over the choice to sin than we may have over our innate capacity.... A sense of falling short or falling down is not only natural but essential to the mortal experience. Still after all we can do the Atonement can fill that which is empty straighten our bent parts and make strong that which is weak.

In many cases mathematics is an escape from reality. The mathematician finds his own monastic niche and happiness in pursuits that are disconnected from external affairs. Some practice it as if using a drug. Chess sometimes plays a similar role. In their unhappiness over the events of this world some immerse themselves in a kind of self-sufficiency in mathematics. (Some have engaged in it for this reason alone.)

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.

Interview 26-June-2000 with Daniel Jaffe ... a writer and Reviews Editor for Classic CD the British classical music magazine. ... what is remarkable though is that he not only suggested that jazz was a worthwhile form of music to study but he also praised authentic American jazz ...... the implications of Prokofievs enthusiasm for jazz ... The strange colours of the so-called American Overture for instance with its honky-tonk piano sound and predominant brass and woodwind colours sounds to me like a take on the sound of a jazz combo though not using its rhythmic style. Jazzy harmonies unmistakably appear in Romeo and Juliet and in his so-called War sonatas. Basically its a ... subtle and subliminal influence. . Prokofiev took opportunities to hear jazz during his many tours through the States certainly he brought plenty of jazz records back to Russia.

Philosophys output is the basketful of these admissible views all together. One delimiting strategy would be to modify and shave these views capturing what is true in each to make them compatible parts of one new view. This book puts forward its explanations in a very tentative spirit; not only do I not ask you to believe that they are correct I do not think it important for me to believe them correct either. Still I do believe and hope you will find it so that these proposed explanations are illuminating and worth considering that they are worth surpassing; also that the process of seeking and elaborating explanations being open to new possibilities the new wonderings and wanderings the free explanation is itself a delight.

A professor was telling students about his colleagues class. Students in the other class had taken to tossing erasers at the clock. Each precise hit caused it to jump ahead one minute. Before class one morning they succeeded in advancing the clock by ten minutes. Since the new time indicated that the professor was beyond the accepted starting time the class left. The professor never said a word about the incident. However he presented the class with a killer of a final exam. As the students labored to finish in the allotted time the professor amused himself by tossing erasers at the clock.

We must learn to deal with people as they are not as we wish them to be. We must study the moral values which shape our thinking arouse our emotions and guide our conduct. We must get acquainted with our inner stream and find out whats going on in our heads and hearts. We must put an end to blind instinctive sensory thought and feeling. We must take time to be human.

Marriage is a relationship based in no small part on virtues. The most basic of these is responsibility for marriage is an arrangement held together by mutual dependence and reciprocal obligations. But successful marriages are about more than fulfilling the conditions of a contract. In good marriages men and women seek to improve themselves for the sake of their loved one. They offer and draw moral strength by sharing compassion courage honesty self-discipline and a host of other virtues. Husband and wives complete themselves through each other and the whole of the union becomes stronger and more wonderful than the sum of the two parts.

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today with all the progress we have made in liberal thought the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

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....

Readers should be very attentive to and critical of historians and they in turn should be constantly on their guard.

The Elf and the Dormouse UNDER a toadstool crept a wee Elf Out of the rain to shelter himself. Under the toadstool sound asleep Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap. Trembled the wee Elf frightened and yet Fearing to fly away lest he get wet. To the next sheltermaybe a mile! Sudden the wee Elf smiled a wee smile. Tugged till the toadstool toppled in two. Holding it over him gaily he flew. Soon he was safe home dry as could be. Soon woke the DormouseGood gracious me! Where is my toadstool? loud he lamented. And thats how umbrellas first were invented.

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.

(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.

Well this is the end of a perfect day Near the end of a journey too; But it leaves a thought that is big and strong With a wish that is kind and true.

Many kinds of religion are available some not even skin deep some mad and unsubstantial some as harmless as the rouge on the skin of a spinster. A good bit of religion today seems shallow. It does not seem to matter except behind stained glass windows on Sunday morning. It is not dishonest religion so much as restricted religion meaning it does not serve the purpose a way of thinking for a special time and a special place. It answers a thousand questions we have not asked and by its supposed sacred customs smothers the questions we might ask or die. For the truth is that our world is both hungry for faith and sick of it..

The preference for irregularity the aversion from that which is wholly intellectualized ... which were eventually to invade the intellectual life of Europe at all points made their first modern appearance on a grand scale in the eighteenth century in the form of the new fashion in pleasure gardens.

The wrath of God is a figure of speech to denote Gods unchanging opposition to sin; it is His righteous love operating to destroy evil. It is not evil that will have the last word but good; not sorrow but joy; not hate but love.

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me Confused at the grace that so fully he proffers me. I tremble to know that for me he was crucified That for me a sinner he suffered he bled and died. Refrain: Oh it is wonderful that he should care for me enough to die for me! Oh it is wonderful wonderful to me! I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine That he should extend his great love unto such as I Sufficient to own to redeem and to justify. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt! Such mercy such love and devotion can I forget? No no I will praise and adore at the mercy seat Until at the glorified throne I kneel at his feet.

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.

One may with Hartshorne and other rationalist philosophers press rationality to the point of postulating certain necessary truths for which we have no conceivable alternatives. Or like Buddhist thinkers of many periodsand like Wieman tooone may find in the very conditions of contingency a religious significance that informs the whole quality of life as lived. Contingency embraced without any nostalgia or yearning for necessary truth yields a different quality of life than contingency assented to as necessarily so in the absence of any conceivable alternative.

The basic assumption which all expositors seem anxious to secure is certainly right namely that the ultimate purpose of a parable is to help and not hinder the apprehension of the truth. But beyond this we may say that it belongs to the very nature of revelation that the capacity to receive it depends upon the prior surrender and obedience of the will.... The disciples had so surrendered to the sovereignty of Jesus and could therefore know. If temporarily a parable concealed the truths of the kingdom from the outsider on the intellectual plane it was only in order that moral conviction might first be secured with a view to intellectual enlightenment afterwards. There are many who through intellectual pride would like to have it otherwise but it cannot be.

I tell you through a means which he has established by which we can love Him freely; ... that is we can be useful not to Him which is impossible but to our neighbor.... To show the love that we have for Him we ought to serve and love every rational creature and extend our charity to good and bad as much to one who does us ill service and criticizes us as to one who serves us.

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.

The effort of the economist is to see to picture the interplay of economic elements. The more clearly cut these elements appear in his vision the better; the more elements he can grasp and hold in his mind at once the better. The economic world is a misty region. The first explorers used unaided vision. Mathematics is the lantern by which what before was dimly visible now looms up in firm bold outlines. The old phantasmagoria disappear. We see better.

Aside from the strictly moral standpoint honesty is not only the best policy but the only possible policy from the standpoint of business relations. The fulfillment of the pledged word is of equal necessity to the conduct of all business. If we expect and demand virtue and honor in others the flame of both must burn brightly within ourselves and shed their light to illuminate the erstwhile dark corners of distrust and dishonesty.... The truthful answer rests for the most part within ourselves for like begets like. Honesty begets honesty; trust trust; and so on through the whole category of desirable practices that must govern and control the worlds affairs.

And why for the sheep should we earnestly long And a earnestly hope and pray Because there is danger if they go astray. For the lambs will follow the sheep you know Wherever the sheep may stray; When the sheep go wrong it will not be long Till the lambs are as wrong as they.

Faith is like a pare of glasses I bring here and there with me The thrilling thing about them is the wondrous things I see. When life grows dark and dismal I don my magic glasses; the perspective soon grows fine. If I slip on this treasure I can toil with greater ease. Troubles and afflictions at length begin to please; The world become all rosy and as cheery as can be; I surely feel most grateful for the faith God gave to me. Perhaps you once had glasses but by faith no longer life Friend ask God for his pardon he is kind and will forgive; O cherish this dear treasure till you meet God up above then present faith as an offering with the gifts of hope and love.

I speak of intermediate species and by no means limit myself to those leading to Man.

A woman today lives in perpetual conflict. She cannot slay the dragon of the unconscious without severing her own essential contact with it; without in fact destroying her feminine strength and becoming a mere pseudo-man. Her task is a peculiarly difficult one. She needs the focused consciousness her animus alone can give her yet she must not forsake her woman's role of mediator to man. Through a woman man finds his soul. She must never forget this. Through a woman not through a pseudo-man. Through man woman finds the animus who can express the soul she has never lost. Her burning need is to trust her own diffuse awareness to know what she knows and to learn to speak of it for until it is expressed she does not wholly know it.

My clearest recollection of a long-ago interview with Thomas A. Edison is of a single sentence that was painted or hung on a wall in his room. In effect the sentence was: It is remarkable to what lengths people will go to avoid thought. That is tragically true. Some of us think more of us think we think and most of us don't even think of thinking. The result is a somewhat cockeyed world.

Faith gives the courage to live and do. Scientists with their disciplined thinking like others need a basis for the good life for aspiration for courage to do great deeds. They need a faith to live by. The hope of the world lies in those who have such faith and who use the methods of science to make their visions become real. Visions and hope and faith are not part of science. They are beyond the nature that science knows. Of such is the religion that gives meaning to life.

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.

By whatever basis human desires are classified the promise of an abundant life covers virtually all. To the spiritual it suggests escape from futility; to the sensuous it calls up visions of luxury; to the defeated it is a dream of success. To the idle it pledges ease; to the weary rest; to the frightened it means safety; to the anxious security; and to the improvident it conjures inexhaustible resources. Persuade a man that you can give him the thing he most desires and you will be his hero; offer him justification for his failures and he will be your disciple; assure him a boundless supply of loaves and fishes and he will seek to make you king.

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 first view a panorama of brilliant deep blue ocean shot with shades of green and gray and white was of atolls and clouds. Close to the window I could see that this Pacific scene in motion was rimmed by the great curved limb of the Earth. It had a thin halo of blue held close and beyond black space. I held my breath but something was missing I felt strangely unfulfilled. Here was a tremendous visual spectacle but viewed in silence. There was no grand musical accompaniment; no triumphant inspired sonata or symphony. Each one of us must write the music of this sphere for ourselves.

In Russell I came to understand there are things worth living for and if need be dying for. The Russell of my youth was not a place of wealth. Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore lifes richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.

Believe if you will that there may have been faults in our industrial system yet the fact remains that the welfare of the average man has not so far advanced under any other form of government and that whatever evil exists will not be corrected by delegating to government with all its weaknesses the authority to run and control all business and to control the daily lives and activities of laboring mankind. Nor will any existing waste and extravagance of government be eliminated or appreciably diminished until the average man realizes that the burden of paying its bills will through direct or indirect taxation ultimately fall upon him his children or his childrens children.

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.

It has been said that a rise of one degree Fahrenheit in the mean annual temperature of the globe would free both polar regions from their ice. it is thrilling to contemplate what frigidity might be dispelled in the world of human relations if people made just a little better effort to be friendly.

A vision of the future has been one of the sustaining marks of the American experience. Without that vision and without the men who devote themselves to realizing that vision there can be no true American way of life. We must beware of the thoughtless men who proclaim that a particular stage of our social development or any special set of conditions is the best that progress can offer. These men would immobilize us in the great stream of history. They would let its great challenges and chances pass us by ... forgetting that the American way of life is a way of acting not a state of inactivity.

Those who devise better methods of utilizing manpower tools machinery materials and facilities are making real contributions toward our national security. Today these ideas are a form of insurance for our national security; tomorrow this same progressive thinking is insurance for our individual securityit is in effect job insurance.

From a series of lectures given between 1790 and 1792. I go farther; and now proceed to show that in peculiar instances in which those rights can receive neither protection nor reparation from civil government they are notwithstanding its institution entitled still to that defence and to those methods of recovery which are justified and demanded in a state of nature. The defence of ones self justly called the primary law of nature is not nor can it be abrogated by any regulation of municipal law.

The secret of the world is this: the world is entirely circular and you will go round and round endlessly never finding what you want unless you have found what you really want inside yourself. When you follow a star you know you will never reach that star; rather it will guide you to where you want to go. Its a reference point not an end in itself even though you seem to be following it. So it is with the world. It will only ever lead you back to yourself. The end of all your exploring will be to cease from exploration and know the place for the first time.

The founders of this nation understood that private morality is the fount from whence sound public policy springs. Replying to Washingtons first inaugural address the Senate stated: We feel sir the force and acknowledge the justness of the observation that the foundation of our national policy should be lain in private morality. If individuals be not influenced by moral principles it is in vain to look for public virtue.

I hear no one boast that he hath a knowledge of the Scriptures but that he owneth a Bible written in golden characters. And tell me then what profiteth this? The Holy Scriptures were not given to us that we should enclose them in books but that we should engrave them upon our hearts.

To throw in a fair game at Hazards only three-spots when something great is at stake or some business is the hazard is a natural occurrence and deserves to be so deemed; and even when they come up the same way for a second time if the throw be repeated. If the third and fourth plays are the same surely there is occasion for suspicion on the part of a prudent man.

The serene philosophy of the pink rose is steadying. Its fragrant delicate petals open fully and are ready to fall without regret or disillusion after only a day in the sun. It is so every summer. One can almost hear their pink fragrant murmur as they settle down upon the grass: Summer summer it will always be summer.

Consideration is not merely a matter of emotional goodwill but of intellectual vigor and moral self sacrifice. Wisdom must combine with sympathy. That is why consideration underlies the phrase a scholar and a gentleman which really sums up the ideal of the output of a college education.

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.

DRY LAND All around me your death like some great ocean rages wave after crashing wave till the cliffs of my arms give way to defenseless shore and I lie blackened against the sand. My hair streams like weeds about my head and pulls me as surely as the moon pulls her tides to the depths of earth. In darkness I am swallowed. In darkness I remember Jonah... that God prepared for him a black fish and after three days and three nights dear God dry land appeared.
