If these distracted times prove anything they prove that the greatest illusion is reliance upon the security and permanence of material possessions. We must search for some other coin.

You can never take away the magnificent mansion of his mind.

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

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

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.

And so in the last analysis it is only God who can give us the comfort of utter understanding.

The quest for this unwearied peace is constant and universal. Probe deeply into the teaching of Buddha Maimonides or a Kempis and you will discover that they base their diverse doctrines on the foundation of a large spiritual serenity. Analyze the prayers of troubled overborne mankind of all creeds in every age--and their petitions come down to the irreducible common denominators of daily bread and inward peace. 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.

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.

We will learn that computers amazing as they are still cannot come close to being as effective as human beings. A computer isnt creative on its own because it is programmed to behave in a predictable way. Creativity comes from looking for the unexpected and stepping outside your own experience. Computers simply cannot do that.

Faced with the admitted difficulty of managing the creative process we are doubling our efforts to do so. Is this because science has failed to deliver having given us nothing more than nuclear power penicillin space travel genetic engineering transistors and superconductors? Or is it because governments everywhere regard as a reproach activities they cannot advantageously control? They felt that way about the marketplace for goods but trillions of wasted dollars later they have come to recognize the efficiency of this self-regulating system. Not so however with the marketplace for ideas.

To me it seems basic to the getting rid of fear to know that our trials of whatever nature are not motiveless. In our present stage of development we could hardly do without them. So often looking ... ugly ... they are in reality the branches by we which we catch on and climb. They are not obstacles to happiness... . Every call of duty has its place in this ideal; every irksome job every wearisome responsibility. The fact that we are not always aware of it in no way annuls the other fact that it is so....

They are crisis intervention the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such wars what we need is to follow the logic of prevention offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates.

It is remarkable how much mediocrity we live with surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote your being average. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a limit you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to having what your really want is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do.

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.

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..

There are times when minds need to turn to simple things. Perhaps for a few of these nights all of us might do well to leave the briefcases at the office and to read again the pages of the Bible and to re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. We might do well to stay home a few days and walk over the fields or to stand in the shelter of the barn door and reflect upon the relentless and yet benevolent forces of Mother Nature. The laws of nature are relentless. They can never be disobeyed without exacting a penalty. Yet they are benevolent for when they are understood and obeyed nature yields up the abundance that blesses those who understand and obey.

Water is a substance very much in love with itself and the atoms connect in webs and clusters where oxygen shares around the hydrogen atoms freely a fluid situation indeed.

The biologist can push it back to the original protist and the chemist can push it back to the crystal but none of them touch the real question of why or how the thing began at all. The astronomer goes back untold million of years and ends in gas and emptiness and then the mathematician sweeps the whole cosmos into unreality and leaves one with mind as the only thing of which we have any immediate apprehension. Cogito ergo sum ergo omnia esse videntur. All this bother and we are no further than Descartes. Have you noticed that the astronomers and mathematicians are much the most cheerful people of the lot? I suppose that perpetually contemplating things on so vast a scale makes them feel either that it doesnt matter a hoot anyway or that anything so large and elaborate must have some sense in it somewhere.

But I wouldnt draw the next inference: that this is negative and therefore it must be stopped. I feel that one should address this influence in a way that takes away the negative edge through a positive counter-response. This way you reinforce and reaffirm your conviction in the inner values. You harness those beliefs and develop them with a greater degree of self-awareness. Thats the kind of response people should have instead of rejecting technology.

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....

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge.

In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

That historians should give their own country a break I grant you; but not so as to state things contrary to fact. For there are plenty of mistakes made by writers out of ignorance and which any man finds it difficult to avoid. But if we knowingly write what is false whether for the sake of our country or our friends or just to be pleasant what difference is there between us and hack-writers? Readers should be very attentive to and critical of historians and they in turn should be constantly on their guard.

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.

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.

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.

Philosopher and mathematician Gottfried Leibniz speculated on the possibility of intermediate species over a century before the publication of Darwins theory: All advances by degrees in Nature and nothing by leaps and this law as applied to each is part of my doctrine of Continuity. Although there may exist in some other world species intermediate between Man and the Apes Nature has thought it best to remove them from us in order to establish our superiority beyond question. I speak of intermediate species and by no means limit myself to those leading to Man. I strongly approve of the research for analogies; plants insects and Comparative Anatomy will increase these analogies especially when we are able to take advantage of the microscope more than at present.

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.

By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

What time the daisy decks the green Thy certain voice we hear: Hast thou a star to guide thy path Or mark the rolling year? Delightful visitant! with thee I hail the time of flowers And hear the sound of music sweet From birds among the bowers. 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! Wed make with joyful wing Our annual visit oer the globe Companions of the Spring

Contemplating this blighted and sinister career the lesson is burnt in upon the conscience that since Judas by transgression fell no place in the Church of Christ can render any man secure. And since falling he was openly exposed none may flatter himself that the cause of Christ is bound up with his reputation that the mischief must needs be averted which his downfall would entail that Providence must needs avert from him the natural penalties for evildoing. 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.

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.

Mostly they reminded him of his biggest secret a betrayal of trust and friendship long ago. He squeezed his eyes shut as if that could somehow keep the voices away.

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.

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.

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.

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 it can be increased if we do two things: if we recognize and uphold the essential values of family life and if we get and keep control of the process of social change so as to make it give us what is needed to make family life perform its essential functions.

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.

It is not how much you know about life but how you live your life that counts. Those who can avoid mistakes by observing the mistakes of others are most apt to keep free from sorrow. In a world full of uncertainties the record of what has gone beforehuman experienceis as sure and reliable as anything of which we know.

A story is told of an English officer in old India who one day went to the book shelf to take down a book. As he reached his hand up over the volume his finger was bitten by an adder. After a few hours the finger began to swell. Later on the swelling went into his arm and finally the whole body was affected and in a few days the officer was dead. There are adders concealed in many a book. Let the Saints beware of the books that enter their homes for their influence may be as poisonous and deadly as the adder which brought death to the English officer in old India.

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.

It is especially important in this discussion to recognize the unity of the total process from that first unimaginable moment of cosmic emergence through all its subsequent forms of expression until the present. This unbreakable bond of relatedness that makes of the whole a universe becomes increasingly apparent to scientific observation although this bond ultimately escapes scientific formulation or understanding. In virtue of this relatedness everything is intimately present to everything else in the universe. Nothing is completely itself without everything else. This relatedness is both spatial and temporal. However distant in space or time the bond of unity is functionally there. The universe is a communion and a community. We ourselves are that communion become conscious of itself.

The quotation above from 6 ft 4 inch 286 pound Silver Medalist Ghaffari (who broke down in tears on the medal stand) summed up his disappointment after an overtime loss to Aleksandr Karelin of Russia. A win would have given Ghaffari not only the Olympic gold medal but also his first victory over Karelin something of which he has literally dreamed about after 20 meets between the two. Karelin dominates international competition in the sport.

When an individual is taken into custody or otherwise deprived of his freedom by the authorities and is subjected to questioning ... he must be warned prior to any questioning that he has the right to remain silent that anything he says can be used against him in a court of law that he has the right to the presence of an attorney and that if he cannot afford an attorney one will be appointed for him prior to any questioning if he so desires.

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.

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

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.

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.

But in a conflict between truth and darkness truth cannot lose.

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.

Evangelism is not an activity at all. It is rather an attitude of mind behind all Christian activity. Evangelism is not a list of certain things done but the spirit in which they are done. That is precisely why it cannot be organized.

Rather I say we are glad that we live in this time of mortal struggle and are doing our share to put to flight the powers of darkness. Our children and grandchildren will be proud that this country saved freedom for itself by helping to preserve it for the world.

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

In Prison Wearily drearily Half the day long Flap the great banners High over the stone; Strangely and eerily Sounds the winds song Bending the banner-poles. While all alone Watching the loopholes spark Lie I with life all dark Feet tethered hands fettered Fast to the stone The grim walls square lettered With prisoned mens groan. Still strain the banner-poles Through the winds song Westward the banner rolls Over my wrong.

A religion that serves todays needs and holds tomorrows promise should not consist of dying forms and cold rituals but of living hope and friendly righteousness. Justice honor and truth will be found where righteousness is found. If all people return to religion and find peace the world will find peace.

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns and water because one may drown in it... The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them. The boss depends upon authority; the leader on good will. The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. The boss says I; the leader we.

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. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble the most beautiful marble you can imagine. That beautiful warm living object looked so fragile so delicate that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man has to make a man appreciate the creation of God and the love of God.
