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

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

Poetry even that of the loftiest and seemingly that of the wildest odes [has] a logic of its own as severe as that of science; and more difficult because more subtle more complex and dependent on more and more fugitive causes. In the truly great poets... there is a reason assignable not only for every word but for the position of every word.

There the President ... brought up entirely the relations with the Japanese. He brought up the event that we were likely to be attacked perhaps (as soon as) next Monday for the Japanese are notorious for making an attack without warning and the question was what we would do. The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves. It was a difficult proposition.

Pythagoras   Category: Unsorted

The search for truth is as it always has been the noblest expression of the human spirit. Mans insatiable desire for knowledge about himself about his environment and the forces by which he is surrounded gives life its meaning and purpose and clothes it with final dignity....

Unless we can anchor our knowledge to moral purposes the ultimate result will be dust and ashes dust and ashes that will bury the hopes and monuments of men beyond recovery.

Men have for the most part done with lamenting their lost faith. Sentimental tears over the happy simple Christendom of their fathers are a thing of the past. They are proclaiming now their contempt for Christs character and their disgust at the very name of love. Scorn and hatred difference and division must be more than ever our lot if we would be the followers of Christ in these days. Conventional religion and polite unbelief are gone forever.

Perhaps the most important lesson the world has learned in the past fifty years is that it is not true that human nature is unchangeable.

For the moment at least the Darwinian period is past; we can no longer enjoy the comfortable assurance which once satisfied so many of us that the main problem has been solved all is again in the melting pot.

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

We thus begin to see that the institutionalized practice of citations and references in the sphere of learning is not a trivial matter. While many a general reader that is the lay reader located outside the domain of science and scholarship may regard the lowly footnote or the remote endnote or the bibliographic parenthesis as a dispensable nuisance it can be argued that these are in truth central to the incentive system and an underlying sense of distributive justice that do much to energize the advancement of knowledge.

Any book about gardens written for the pleasure of writing must have its sources in dreams.

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

The strongest argument for the unmaterialistic character of American life is ... that we tolerate conditions that are from a materialistic point of view intolerable ... the food we eat the cramped apartments ... the crowded subways.... American life in large cities at any rate is a perpetual assault of the senses and the nerves; it is out of asceticism out of unworldliness precisely that we bear it.

We are here on earth to workto work long hard arduous hours to work until our backs ache and our tired muscles knot to work all our days.

On December 12 1829 Paganini wrote his friend Germi: The variations Ive composed on the graceful Neapolitan ditty Oh Mamma Mama Cara outshine everything. I cant describe it! He was writing from Karlsruhe in the midst of his triumphal tour through Germany. That letter marks the earliest known mention of the variations that would become famous as The Carnival of Venice. 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.

Of course we knew that the official reports were sketchy if not falsified.

One can adjust for the political slanting of the news but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

(On the temperature of water in wells) The reason why the water in wells becomes colder in summer is that the earth is then rarefied by the heat and releases into the air all the heat-particles it happens to have. So the more the earth is drained of heat the colder becomes the moisture that is concealed in the ground. On the other hand when all the earth condenses and contracts and congeals with the cold then of course as it contracts it squeezes out into the wells whatever heat it holds.

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.

Although every flower may possess secondarily its own specific symbolism for all that flowers generally are symbols of the passive principle. The calix of a flower like the chalice is the receptacle of heavenly instrumentality among the symbols of which dew and rain should be mentioned. Furthermore the way flowers grow up out of earth and water symbolizes manifestation rising out of these passive elements.... The allegorical use of flowers is endless.

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.

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.

It is true that when we take chances we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

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.

Well know why clouds instead of sun Were over many a cherished plan Why song has ceased when scarce begun; Tis there sometime well understand. Why what we long for most of all Eludes so oft our eager hand Why hopes are crushed and castles fall Up there sometime well understand. God knows the way; he holds the key; He guides us with unerring hand; Sometimes with tearless eyes well see Yes there up there well understand. Then trust in God through all thy days; Fear not for he cloth hold thy hand; Though dark thy way still sing and praise Sometime sometime well understand.

One may with Hartshorne and other rationalist philosophers press rationality to the point of postulating certain necessary truths for which we have no conceivable alternatives.

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.

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.

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.

I am small and weak I need your strength and wisdom Let me walk in beauty And make my eyes ever behold The red and purple sunset. Make my hands respect The things you have made And my ears sharp To hear your voice Make me wise So I may see ever so clearly The ways you have to teach me Let me learn The lessons you have hidden in every leaf and cloud I seek your strength Not to be greater then my brother but to fight my greatest enemy... Myself Make me always ready to come to you With clean hands And straight eyes So when life fades as the fading sunset My spirit may come to you Without shame.

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.

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

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

An enlightening pastime is to make a list of favorite things that impact the senses. Not only does it provide a challenging exercise for the mind and memory but it sharpens our appreciation of these golden moments in time. For example one persons list of ten favorite sounds: a distant train whistle; a mother talking to her new baby; the scrunch of leaves on a bright autumn day; seagulls crying; a hound baying in the woods at night; the absolute silence of a mountain lake at sunset; a crackling fire on a bitter day; a stadium crowd singing the national anthem; the screech of an airplanes tires as they touch down; his wifes voice at morning. Try the exercise for favorite sounds smells or sights. You may learn something about yourself.

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.

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.

Dividing industry into big and little is artificial. Industry is both that makes it Industry. Ninety-eight per cent of American industries employ less than 500 men each. Todays big industries were small within our lifetime many of todays small industries will become big before our lifetime ends. Large industries make small industries necessary and small industries make large ones possible. Wipe out large industries and you wipe out three-fourths of the small ones; wipe out the small ones and the large ones cannot go on. They work together. Each has a part in the nations job.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

I asked an endurance swimmer How is it possible for you to swim for twenty hours? What kind of mental attitude do you have? She said I believe that the water is a friend. It wants to help me. It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly. It requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

I should advise the reader not to make up his mind on this point until he has well weighed two facts which nobody disputes both separately and in connexion. First logic is the only science which has made no progress since the revival of letters; secondly logic is the only science which has produced no growth of symbols.

Ten Spiritual Tonics 1. Stop worrying. Worry kills life. 2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul. 3. Control appetite. Over-indulgence clogs body and mind. 4. Accept your limitations ... 5. Don't envy. It wastes time and energy. 6. Have faith in people. Cynicism sours the disposition. 7. Find a hobby. It will relax your nerves. 8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views. 9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence. 10. Try to want what you have instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide; When other helpers fail and comforts flee Help of the helpless O abide with me.

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

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.

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