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.

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....

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.

In the mathematics I can report no deficience except that it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the pure mathematics in that they do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties intellectual. For if the wit be too dull they sharpen it; if too wandering they fix it; if too inherent in the sense they abstract it. So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures; so in the mathematics that use which is collateral and intervenient is no less worthy than that which is principal and intended.

Gather your worries to God. Do all you can about the situation that is causing them. Don't contaminate your friends and loved ones with them.

I do not want to presuppose anything as known. I see in my explanation in section 1 the definition of the concepts point straight line and plane if one adds to these all the axioms of groups i-v as characteristics. If one is looking for other definitions of point perhaps by means of paraphrase in terms of extensionless etc. then of course I would most decidedly have to oppose such an enterprise. One is then looking for something that can never be found for there is nothing there and everything gets lost becomes confused and vague and degenerates into a game of hide and seek.

Interest in global circumnavigation is older than Christianity itself. In fact if the following quotation is to be credited some attempts at circumnavigation predated the birth of Christ: As for the rest of the distance around the inhabited earth which has not been visited by us up to the present time (because of the fact that the navigators who sailed in opposite directions never met) it is not of very great extent if we reckon from the parallel distances that have been traversed by us... For those who undertook circumnavigation and turned back without having achieved their purpose say that they were made to turn back not because of any continent that stood in their way and hindered their further advance inasmuch as the sea still continued open as before but because of their destitution and loneliness.

From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived.... Of these Souls there are many changes some into a more fortunate estate and some quite contrary.... Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body and after the struggle to acquire piety which consists in knowing God and injuring none such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul however punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into for no other body can receive a human soul; it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy.... The soul passeth from form to form; and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment; and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old O Soul of Man; yea thou art from everlasting.

He has loved us without being loved.... We are bound to Him and not He to us because before He was loved He loved us.... There it is then: we cannot ... love Him with this first love. Yet I say that God demands of us that as He has loved us with out any second thoughts so He should be loved by us. In what way can we do this then? ... 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. For His charity extends over just men and sinners.

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.

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.

TO ACHIEVE YOUR DREAMS REMEMBER YOUR ABC ' S Avoid negative sources, people, places, things and habits. Believe in yourself Consider things from every angle. Don't give up and don't give in. Enjoy life today, yesterday is gone, tomorrow may never come. Family and Friends are hidden treasures, seek them and enjoy their riches. Give more than you planned to. Hang on to your dreams. Ignore those who try to discourage you. Just Do it. Keep trying no matter how hard it seems, it will get easier. Love yourself first and the most. Make it happen. Never lie, cheat or steal, always strike a fair deal. Open your eyes, and see things as they really are, not as you wish them to be. Practice make perfect, patience is a virtue. Quitters never win, winners never quit. Read, study, learn about everything important in your life. Stop procrastinating. Take control of your own destiny. Understand yourself, in order to better understand others. Visualize it. Want it more than anything. Xcellerate your efforts. You are unique of all God's creations.

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.

No crown of thorns no cruel cross Could make our great Redeemer shun. He counted his own will but loss And said Thy will O Lord be done.

I have often pondered over the roles of knowledge or experience on the one hand and imagination or intuition on the other in the process of discovery. I believe that there is a certain fundamental conflict between the two and knowledge by advocating caution tends to inhibit the flight of imagination. Therefore a certain naivete unburdened by conventional wisdom can sometimes be a positive asset.

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 non–symbolic non–conceptual 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 non–dual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

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.

Christ died on the Cross and at that instant death was vanquished forever.

I think back to what Camus wrote about the fact that perhaps this world is a world in which children suffer but we can lessen the number of suffering children and if you do not do this then who will do this? Id like to feel that Id done something to lessen that suffering.

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.

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.

The Earth reminded us of a Christmas tree ornament hanging in the blackness of space. As we got farther and farther away it diminished in size.

Seeing this has to change a man has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.

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.

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.

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.

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 must find this seed no matter how small it is; we must give to it the warmth of love the light of understanding and the water of encouragement. 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.

My beloved young friends determine to serve one another. Opportunities for Christian acts of service do not always come at convenient times. Listen to the spirit when your flesh is weak. For truly the Master said Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me (Matt. 25:40). The blessings are tenfold when we do those good kindly acts of Christian service when it is inopportune or not convenient.

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.

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.

Philosophys output is the basketful of these admissible views all together.

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.

Larger and finer meanings are read into the older legends of the plants and the universality of certain myths is expressed in the concurrence of ideas in the beginnings of the great religions. One of the first figures in the leading cosmologies is a tree of life guarded by a serpent. In the Judaic faith this was the tree in the garden of Eden; the Scandinavians made it an ash Ygdrasil; Christians usually specify the tree as an apple Hindus as a soma Persians as a homa Cambodians as a talok; this early treee is the vine of Bacchus the snake-entwined caduceus of Mercury the twining creeper of the Eddas the bohidruma of Buddha the fig of Isaiah the tree of Aesculapius with the serpent around his trunk.

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.

I need Thy presence evry passing hour; What but Thy grace can foil the tempters powr? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine O abide with me. I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness; Where is deaths sting? where grave thy victory? I triumph still if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies; Heavns morning breaks and earths vain shadows flee; In life in death O Lord abide with me.

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. Sweet bird! thy bower is ever green Thy sky is ever clear; Thou hast no sorrow in thy song No Winter in thy year! O could I fly Id fly with thee!

At the time of his letter Paganini had already performed the piece in at least four concerts. From then on it would be one of his most popular compositions.

It is evident that most attorneys and legal scholars feel that their ethical obligation to put forth their best defense of a client is the highest principle in law. Agreed it is a high principle. However should it be a higher principle than what the system is supposed to achieve namely justice? Of course not. If the ethic of a good defense insists on obscuring or hiding truth it needs to be re-evaluated because it is then immoral.

With due deference I expressed my judgement that any plans for our military defense should include an assumption that the Japanese might make the element of surprise a central point in their strategy and also might attack at various points simultaneously with a view to demoralizing efforts of defense and of coordination.

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.

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....

The essence of peace is to merge two opposites. Therefore your notions should not scare you if you see another who absolutely opposes you and you presume that there is no chance for peace between you two. On the same token when you see two individuals who are exactly two opposites never say it would be impossible for them to reconcile. On the contrary and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites.

As evening approached I came down from the heights of the island and I liked then to go and sit on the shingle in some secluded spot by the lake; there the noise of the waves and the movement of the water taking hold of my senses and driving all other agitation from my soul would plunge me into delicious reverie in which night often stole upon me unawares.

What the Metaphysics of Quality would do is take this separate category Quality and show how it contains within itself both subjects and objects.

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.

You can domesticate your body but you can't domesticate your face even by having a lift or having your nose bobbed. A face bears the reflection of our nature which in the beginning is veiled by the attractiveness of youth.

No landscape can equal a human face that's been molded by its own owner.

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.

Thats the way my mother always did it the bride replied with a shrug. He asked his wifes mother the same question and got the same answer Thats the way my mother did it. Finally he asked the grandma who replied Thats the only way I could get it into the pan.

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.

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.

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.

We are born knowing nothing and with much striving we learn but a little; yet all the while we are bound by laws that hearken to no plea of ignorance and measure out their rewards and punishments with calm indifference. In such a state humility is the virtue of men and their only defense; to walk humbly with God never doubting whatever befall that His will is good and that His law is right.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently no majority has a right to deprive them of.

The field is a halfway house halfway between the detail of those intimately known places and the ignorance of a landscape view.... The essence of a field is that the cultural accommodates the natural there. The human being makes room for and makes use of those organisms that are not him. In that way the field is a poem to symbiosis and a human contract with the natural.

I am ashamed of the race of beings to which I belong. It is so cruel and bigoted so hypocritical so soulless and insane.

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.

The old thought that one cannot be rich except at the expense of his neighbor must pass away. True prosperity adds to the richness of the whole world such as that of the man who makes two trees grow where only one grew before. The parasitical belief in prosperity as coming by the sacrifices of others has no place in the mind that thinks true.
