Todays newest breed of employee is the self-manager. These workers are the ones who survived the recent. waves of downsizing both by seeking and capitalizing on new opportunities and by learning new skills. Because these employees increasingly possess the skills and technological tools to supervise themselvesindividually or in teamsthey are eliminating the need for layers of management. More executives will soon find their jobs redundant while self-managing frontline workers become highly valued and virtually fire-proof. Everyone should strive to become self-managed. It is clearly the direction business is taking.

From every pulpit in the land it needs to be thundered forth that God still lives that God still observes ... still reigns. Faith is now in the crucible it is being tested by fire and there is no fixed... resting place for the heart and mind but in the Throne of God.

Nature in the garden is nature tamed cultivated made subservient to human purpose brought into subjection to conscious purpose. A garden is not merely a piece of nature fenced in near the house like a wolf chained at the back door; but nature cultivated and trained like a dog tamed and trained for human ends. Art in the garden is the human element appropriating and elevating the natural for human purpose.

I spent twenty-two seasons playing professional baseball. Naturally success in that field is measured by batting averages number of home runs and RBIs fielding averages ERAs and other statistics.

At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isnt as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate his future his whole expanse and world.
Rainer Maria Rilke   Category: Unsorted

Because they are primeval because they outlive us because they are fixed trees seem to emanate a sense of permanence. And though rooted in earth they seem to touch the sky. For these reasons it is natural to feel we might learn wisdom from them to haunt about them with the idea that if we could only read their silent riddle rightly we should learn some secret vital to our own lives; or even more specifically some secret vital to our real our lasting and spiritual existence.

I looked up and saw my flag. But I didnt hear my anthem. 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.

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

I cant believe Im having this conversation ... With you! Youve probably never read a book in your life that wasnt written by John Grisham. You don't get it. People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isnt about analysing stories if it was I wouldnt be like this. Stories novels whatever ... reflect something about the writer ... and the culture ... and the society that it came from. Its a mirror a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right when we just get it we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly we know the right decision to make. And if you don't know who you are and make the wrong choices what good is it if you can make two-hundred and fifty thousand?

I think that the most important thing to teach children in an environmentally conscious age is alternative views of nature. They must be shown how our interpretation of natural systems is often completely dependent not on what is there but on what kind of box we draw around the data. And if they are going to be smarter than their parents then schoolchildren must think subversively about accepted wisdoms concerning natural systems.

Harriet Martineau   Category: Unsorted

I see the situation as follows. There are various philosophical views mutually incompatible which cannot be dismissed or simply rejected. 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.

If this bill [for the admission of Orleans Territory as a State] passes it is my deliberate opinion that it is virtually a dissolution of the Union; that it will free the States from their moral obligation; and as it will be the right of all so it will be the duty of some definitely to prepare for a separation amicably if they can violently if they must.

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

Rest enough for the individual man too much and too soon and we call it death. But for man no rest and no ending. He must go on conquest beyond conquest.

And when he has conquered all the deep space and all the mysteries of time still he will be beginning.

Family life is the source of the greatest human happiness. This happiness is the simplest and least costly kind and it cannot be purchased with money.

We cannot judge fully of men's works by what we see or what is said and thought of them; for man is prone to depreciate that which is really important and to exact and extol what is trivial and of little worth. Many things which are hidden and unrecognized of human wisdom are nevertheless valuable and vitally important.

To live with beauty is not only to give oneself a joy it is o have the power of beauty at ones call. A mans life would be in a deep and manly way purified and sweetened if each day he could gain a little of the inspiration that poets fuse into their verse and have it share his visions for that day. The wise poet was right who advised us daily to see a beautiful picture daily to read a beautiful poem. He was right he was practical.

We must drop the idea that change comes slowly. It does ordinarily in part because we think it does. Today changes must come fast; and we must adjust our mental habits so that we can accept comfortably the idea of stopping one thing and beginning another overnight. We must discard the idea that past routine past ways of doing things are probably the best ways. On the contrary we must assume that there is probably a better way to do almost everything. We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

If a nonnegative quantity was so small that it is smaller than any given one then it certainly could not be anything but zero. To those who ask what the infinitely small quantity in mathematics is we answer that it is actually zero. Hence there are not so many mysteries hidden in this concept as they are usually believed to be. These supposed mysteries have rendered the calculus of the infinitely small quite suspect to many people. Those doubts that remain we shall thoroughly remove in the following pages where we shall explain this calculus.

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

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....

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.

For there are plenty of mistakes made by writers out of ignorance and which any man finds it difficult to avoid.

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

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.

Poetry often introduces a mythological dimension which reflects the close connections between the gods and commonly encountered trees. A passage from Vergils Georgics in which the poet enumerates grafted trees and miraculous growth incorporates several such mythological references: myrtles sacred to Venus; the poplar crown of Hercules; and the acorns of Jupiters symbolic oak referring to his grove at Dodona. The pine was held sacred to Pan the Roman Faunus and in his Eclogues Vergil describes the pastoral gods home on Mt. Maenalus in Arcadia. Propertius stresses the gods fondness for the tree and Horace for his part dedicates a pine to the goddess Diana in a famous ode.

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.

I do hate sums. There is no greater mistake than to call arithmetic an exact science. There are permutations and aberrations discernible to minds entirely noble like mine; subtle variations which ordinary accountants fail to discover; hidden laws of number which it requires a mind like mine to perceive. For instance if you add a sum from the bottom up and then from the top down the result is always different.

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.

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.

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.

Anyone who wants to understand me must first understand Russell Kansas. It is my home where my roots lie and a constant source of strength. My fathers view of the world as stewers versus doers registered early. From my neighbors I learned to feel deeply for God country and family. 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.

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

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

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.

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....

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

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

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.

The Holy Night We sate among the stalls at Bethlehem; The dumb kine from their fodder turning them Softened their horned faces To almost human gazes Toward the newly Born: The simple shepherds from the star-lit brooks Brought visionary looks As yet in their astonied hearing rung The strange sweet angel-tongue: The magi of the East in sandals worn Knelt reverent sweeping round With long pale beards their gifts upon the ground The incense myrrh and gold These baby hands were impotent to hold: So let all earthlies and celestials wait Upon thy royal state. Sleep sleep my kingly One!

'Twas a sheep not a lamb that strayed away In the parable Jesus told; A grown-up sheep that had gone astray From the ninety and none in the fold. Out on the hillside out in the cold Twas a sheep the good shepherd sought And back to the flock safe in the fold Twas a sheep the good shepherd brought. 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. And so with the sheep we earnestly plead For the sake of the lambs today; If the lambs are lost; what a terrible cost Some sheep will have to pay.

In other words the propositions of philosophy are not factual but linguistic in character that is they do not describe the behaviour of physical or even mental objects; they express definitions or the formal consequences of definitions. Accordingly we may say that philosophy is a department of logic. For we will see that the characteristic mark of a purely logical enquiry is that it is concerned with the formal consequences of our definitions and not with questions of empirical fact.

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.

An artist wished to paint a face The symbol of innocence and joy; He sought a child for his ideal And drew the likeness of a boy. Long years passed on. The artist now A gray old man one picture more Designed to make and call it Guilt A contrast to the child of yore. He went into a dungeon dark Its cold walls damp with slime. And painted a wretched man chained there Condemned to death for crime. Beside the other he placed the last; And when he learned the prisoners name He found the innocent laughing child And the hardened man were but the same. Montagu Gere

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.

For if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently it must first set its affairs in order at home.

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.

Mostly though there were the voices. Whispering to him. Reminding him of the dark things he had done all of the little things he had forgotten all of the big things he had tried to forget. 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.

Why should the Golden Rule be so difficult in business and foreign relations? The happily married treat each other as they wish to be treated. They treat their children better than they wish to be treated themselves. Unless we do unto a friend as we do unto ourselves we lose a friend. In an emergency we rush to the aid of our neighbor. Is it so great a step to realize that all people everywhere are neighbors?

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.

This book was not written because I wanted to offer a supreme model to the man who struggles; I wanted to show him that he must not fear pain temptation or death because all three can be conquered all three have already been conquered. Christ suffered pain and since then pain has been sanctified. Temptation fought until the very last moment to lead him astray and Temptation was defeated. Christ died on the Cross and at that instant death was vanquished forever.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Our fathers God to thee Author of liberty To thee I sing; Long may our land be bright With freedoms holy light; Protect us by thy might Great God our King!

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. My benefit is your benefit your success is my success should be the basis of all our wealth.

The antithesis between death and life is not so stark for the Christian as it is for the atheist. Life is a process of becoming and the moment of death is the transition from one life to another. Thus it is possible for a Christian to succumb to his own kind of death-wish to seek that extreme of other-worldliness to which the faith has always been liable especially in periods of stress and uncertainty. There may appear a marked preoccupation with death and a rejection of all temporal things. To say that this world is in a fallen state and that not too much value must be set upon it is very far from the Manichaean error of supposing it to be evil throughout. The Christian hope finds ambivalence in death: that which destroys also redeems.

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.

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.

I know not why His hand is laid In chastening on my life Nor why it is my little world Is filled so full of strife; I know not why when faith looks up And seeks for rest from pain That oer my sky fresh clouds arise And drench my path with rain. I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why while others ships sail on Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

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.

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...

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.

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.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self.

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.

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

Within me is the potential to commit every evil act I see being committed by other men and unless I feel this potential I can at any moment be controlled by these same urges. I am free from these urges only if I recognize when I am feeling them and while feeling them and acknowledging them to be me choose not to follow them. Only in this way can I begin to regain the disowned parts of me. And only in this way can I know what it is I am criticizing in others.

Mother and small son walking along a sun-splashed street; Their shadows hand in hand dance swiftly at their feet. Her shadow straight and tall; his shadow small and round; They laugh at their likenesses traced there upon the ground. The summer suns pass quickly. They walk another day. Now shadows move sedately down the familiar way. His shadow now the tall one her shadow slight and bent And as she walks she wonders where his little shadow went.

When music sounds gone is the earth I know And all her lovelier things even lovelier grow; Her flowers in vision flame her forest trees Lift burdened branches stilled with ecstasies. When music sounds out of the water rise Naiads whose beauty dims my waking eyes Rapt in strange dream burns each enchanted face With solemn echoing stirs their dwelling-place. When music sounds all that I was I am Ere to this haunt of brooding dust I came; And from Times woods break into distant song The swift-winged hours as I hasten along.

Suddenly a light descended. Brighter far than noon-day sun And a shining glorious pillar Oer him fell around him shone. While appeared two heavnly beings God the Father and the Son. `Joseph this is my beloved; Hear Him! Oh how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered And he listened to the Lord.

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.

A man that advances in spiritual and in temporal matters at the same time minding to keep the spiritual first will not let the temporal lead him; he will not place his heart upon his farm his horses or any possession that he has. He will place his desires in heaven and will anchor his hope in that eternal soil; and his temporal affairs will come up as he advances in the knowledge of God.

Have you done your homework? my mother would ask. Ill do it later. You will do it now young man. I don't want you winding up on the third shift at Flagg-Utica. Flagg-Utica was a local textile plant. Somehow I never could figure how failing to read three chapters in my geography book about the various sorts of vegetation to be found in a tropical rain forest had anything to do with facing a life as a mill hand. But with enough guilt and fear as catalysts you can read anything even geography books and Deuteronomy.

A koan is simply the time and place where Truth is manifest. >From the fundamental point of view there is no time or place where Truth is not revealed: every place every day every event every thought every deed and every person is a koan. In that senses koans are neither obscure nor enigmatic. However a koan is more commonly understood as a tool for teaching true insight.

Each year the big garden grew smaller and Jane - who grew flowers by choice not corn or stringbeans - worked at the vegetables more than I did. Each winter I dreamed crops dreamed marvels of canning ... and each summer I largely failed. Shamefaced I planted no garden at all.

I have seen boys on my baseball team go into slumps and never come out of them and I have seen others snap right out and come back better than ever. I guess more players lick themselves than are ever licked by an opposing team. The first thing any man has to know is how to handle himself. Training counts. You cant win any game unless you are ready to win.

I agree that the fear of American cultural imperialism is shared by many people and I agree with your point about the invasive nature of television culture. 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.

We are not very pleased when we are forced to accept a mathematical truth by virtue of a complicated chain of formal conclusions and computations which we traverse blindly link by link feeling our way by touch. We want first an overview of the aim and of the road; we want to understand the idea of the proof the deeper context.

The mathematic then is an art. As such it has its styles and style periods. It is not as the layman and the philosopher (who is in this matter a layman too) imagine substantially unalterable but subject like every art to unnoticed changes form epoch to epoch. The development of the great arts ought never to be treated without an (assuredly not unprofitable) side-glance at contemporary mathematics.
