Owen Meredith   Category: Unsorted

The truth of the Self cannot come through one who has not realized that he is the Self. The intellect cannot reveal the Self beyond its duality of subject and object. They who see themselves in all and all in them help others through spiritual osmosis to realize the Self themselves. This awakening you have known comes not through logic and scholarship but from close association with a realized teacher.

Dal Perry   Category: Unsorted

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.

Paul Tillich can show us that the unity which we seek as Christians must involve our denominations in changes even greater than those which many of us now expect. His insistence on taking seriously the gropings of all men for the truth about their lives must be allowed to remind the ecumenical movement that the word oikoumene is Greek not for the Church but for the whole inhabited world. The ecumenical movement is more than Christian patriarchs kissing. Christian unity means the unity of mankind in finding and obeying God. Tillich can teach us that the Church must not shut its door to celebrate a family reunion while a single child of God remains outside.

Why fear tomorrow timid heart? Why tread the future's way? We only need to do our part Today dear child today. The past is written!

When we grew up and went to school There were certain teachers who would Hurt the children anyway they could By pouring their derision Upon anything we did And exposing every weakness However carefully hidden by the kids But in the town it was well known When they got home at night Their fat and psychopathic wives Would thrash them Within inches of their lives.

Don't think. Thinking is the enemy of creativity. It's self-conscious, and anything self-conscious is lousy. You can't try to do things. You simply must do things.
Ray Bradbury   Category: Unsorted

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

Winds flap the sail tortoise and snake are silent a great plan looms. A bridge will fly over this moat dug by heaven and be a road from north to south.

It has been too much the custom to regard the earliest Christian books as written in a specially Christian form of speech standing apart and distinguishable from the common language of the eastern Roman provinces. Had that been the case it is not too bold to say that the new religion could not have conquered the Empire. It was because Christianity appealed direct to the people addressed them in their own language and made itself comprehensible to them on their own plane of thought that it met the needs and filled the heart of the Roman world.
W. M. Ramsa   Category: Unsorted

His epitaph: This tomb hold Diophantus Ah what a marvel! And the tomb tells scientifically the measure of his life. God vouchsafed that he should be a boy for the sixth part of his life; when a twelfth was added his cheeks acquired a beard; He kindled for him the light of marriage after a seventh and in the fifth year after his marriage He granted him a son. Alas! late-begotten and miserable child when he had reached the measure of half his fathers life the chill grave took him. After consoling his grief by this science of numbers for four years he reached the end of his life.

Louise L. Hay   Category: Unsorted

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

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

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.

For society as a whole nothing comes as a right to which we are entitled. Even bare subsistence has to be producedand produced at a cost of heavy toil for much of human history.

The more things are provided as rights the less the recipients have to work and the more others have to carry their load.

Work is ... becoming suffused with leisure values....

The Servant Messiah carries out his ministry in the lives of his ministers. His life is reproduced in their lives so they also are servants.

The Messiah came as a Servant; his ministers are servants; and the Church he created is a Servant-Church.

When half way through he discovered what seemed to be an error (though probably no one else in the room observed it). 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.

When asked what it was like to set about proving something the mathematician likened proving a theorem to seeing the peak of a mountain and trying to climb to the top. One establishes a base camp and begins scaling the mountains sheer face encountering obstacles at every turn often retracing ones steps and struggling every foot of the journey. Finally when the top is reached one stands examining the peak taking in the view of the surrounding countrysideand then noting the automobile road up the other side!

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.

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.

It is no strain of metaphor to say that the love of God and the wrath of God are the same thing described from opposite points of view. How we shall experience it depends upon the way we shall come up against it: God does not change; it is mans moral state that changes. The wrath of God is a figure of speech to denote Gods unchanging opposition to sin; it is His righteous love operating to destroy evil. It is not evil that will have the last word but good; not sorrow but joy; not hate but love.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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....

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

When indignation takes possession of his mind and it is easily excited his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings he regains the humanity which he had lost from the immediate impulse of provocation and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions from good to evil from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies as a blessing placed beyond his attainment which he regrets.

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.

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.

And when things get bad my boyfriend does dance for me and it never fails to make me laugh. Hes a pretty snappy dancer.

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.

Never fear big long words. Big long words mean little things. All big things have little names Such as life and death peace and war Or dawn day night hope love home.

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.

We sometimes speak of winning reputation as though that were the final goal. The truth is contrary to this. Reputation is a reward to be sure but it is really the beginning not the end of endeavor. It should not be the signal for a let-down but rather a reminder that the standards which won recognition can never again be lowered. From him who gives much - much is forever after expected.

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.

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.

No one is fit to be trusted with power.... No one.... Any man who has lived at all knows the follies and wickedness hes capable of. If he does not know it he is not fit to govern others. And if he does know it he knows also that neither he nor any man ought to be allowed to decide a single human fate.

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.

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.

If I Really Cared ... Who you are would be more important to me than who I am. Where you hurt would be more important than that Im well. What you feel would be more important than what I know. Id look you in the eyes when you talk to me; Id think about what youre saying rather than what Im going to say next Id hear your feelings as well as your words. Id listen without defending. Id hear without deciding whether you are right or wrong. Id ask you why and how not just when and where. Id laugh with you but not at you. Id talk with you and not to you and Id know when its time to do neither. I wouldnt climb over your walls. Id wait until you let me in the gate. I wouldnt unlock your secrets; The performances would end. If I really cared about you Id be myself with you And give you the right to be the same.

Some people would say my paintings show a future world and maybe they do but I paint from reality. I put several things and ideas together and perhaps when I have finished it could show the future. If people want to interpret my work as warnings about too much overpopulation disease and mechanization in the future then that is up to them. I like to combine human beings creatures and biomechanics. And I love to work with bones they are elemental and function and after all are part of human beings. I have many bones in my home in Zurich and I study them and use them as models. Some people say my work is often depressing and pessimistic with the emphasis on death blood overcrowding strange beings and so on but I don't really think it is. There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere if you look for it.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

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.

Another advantage of a mathematical statement is that it is so definite that it might be definitely wrong; and if it is found to be wrong there is a plenteous choice of amendments ready in the mathematicians stock of formulae. Some verbal statements have not this merit; they are so vague that they could hardly be wrong and are correspondingly useless.

(On the anthropogenic increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration) The essential fact which emerges ... is that the three smallest and most active reservoirs (of carbon in the global carbon cycle) the atmosphere the plants and the soil are all of roughly the same size.

We cannot hope either to understand or to manage the carbon in the atmosphere unless we understand and manage the trees and the soil too.

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.

Larger and finer meanings are read into the older legends of the plants and the universality of certain myths is expressed in the concurrence of ideas in the beginnings of the great religions. One of the first figures in the leading cosmologies is a tree of life guarded by a serpent.

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.

Some people are very earnest after the things of God and he who seeks finds and the more he seeks in the right direction the more he finds. He that is dilatory in searching after the things of God obtains but little; he that is diligent obtains much. All may receive it but they must obtain it in the way that God has appointed all receiving their measure according to their diligence and desire; but the spirit is the same.

We hear a good deal about business confidence which means confidence of business in itself in its government and in its capacity for expansion. But confidence is only another way of saying that people believe each other keep their promises pay their debts and regard their duty to society. As long as business observes these rules it will have the confidence of the community and it will be safe from all of the irresponsible attacks of its enemies.

The paleontological evidence before us today clearly demonstrates ordered progressive change with the successive development of new faunal and floral assemblages through the changing epochs of our earths history. There should be no real conflict between science which is the search for truth and Christs teachings which I hold to be truth itself. It is only when scientists remove God from creation that the Christian is faced with an irreconcilable situation.

We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

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.

We cut nature up organize it into concepts and ascribe significances as we do largely because we are parties to an agreement to organize it in this way - an agreement that holds through our speech community and is codified in the patterns of our language.

History is the torch that is meant to illuminate the past to guard us against the repetition of our mistakes of other days. We cannot join in the rewriting of history to make it conform to our comfort and convenience.

To this day the more conventional biologists suffer from an obsessional fear of anthropomorphism and even put such words as hunger and fear between quotes (a literary solecism in any case) when writing about animals. The quotes are a way of saying I cannot get on without Anthropomorphism but I am ashamed to be seen with her in public.

So rests the sky against the earth. The dark still tarn in the lap of the forest. As a husband embraces his wifes body in faithful tenderness so the bare ground and trees are embraced by the still high light of the morning. I feel an ache of longing to share in this embrace to be united and absorbed. A longing like carnal desire but directed towards earth water sky and returned by the whispers of the trees the fragrance of the soil the caresses of the wind the embrace of water and light. Content? No no no -- but refreshed rested -- while waiting.

... I repeat it sir we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us! ... Sir we are not weak if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.... Besides sir we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise friends to fight our battles for us. The battle sir is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant the active the brave ... ... Should I keep back my opinions at such a time through fear of giving offense I should consider myself as guilty of treason toward my country and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven which I revere above all earthly kings.

Somewhere theres music how faint the tune.... Some tribal cultures believe that the act of creation takes place through music. They literally sing their homes their villages and their valleys into existence. They keep them strong and real regularly and ritually through music and belief. Its a little like prayer isnt it? Somewhere in the world someone is chanting their own universe into being right now. We modern folk are not so different from this. We speak of being in tune of needing harmony and rhythm to feel complete and alive. We create our own realities with our words and our songs our eyes and our hands. Each world is defined by our own outline the envelope of skin and nerves and light and air we inhabit. Every time we push against something we feel ourselves.

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.

The only limitless thing I know of is human want. Civilization itself is nothing more than the creation of wants followed by methods of satisfying those wants.
