Unsorted quotes (6647)

What I am thinking and doing day by day is resistlessly shaping my future a future in which there is no expiation except through my own better conduct. No one can save. No one can live my life for me. If I am wise I shall begin today to build my own truer and better world from within.

Tom Waits   Category: Unsorted

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

The unity of Christendom is not a luxury but a necessity. The world will go limping until Christs prayer that all may be one is answered. We must have unity not at all costs but at all risks.

We have a system which though far from perfect is strong with idealism. It gives elbow room for men of all races and all beliefs. It is vital and dynamic. And it works. We have the means of shaping the world in our pattern. If we do freedom will be assured for all men. The decision is in the hands of this generation. It is a challenge to our political competence. For Western civilization it is the greatest challenge of all time.

I tell my students to get two plants one alive and one plastic. As time goes on the students tell me that the plastic plant is pretty but that It doesnt call to me it doesnt say Water me. or See if Ive changed since last night see if I have a new leaf. The students become involved with the living plant. It keeps pulling to them and they care about it. They nurture it but they don't want to force it. I think we have lost our sense of involvement and that were cheating ourselves. What would life be like if there were only plastic flowers?

You who are on the road must have a code that you can live by-* Youll find universal agreement on the value of a behavior code on the need for some sort of ethical system.

On the job and in the rest of our day-to-day living we each need a code for the road. *Crosby Stills & Nash in a hit song.

... He had by now divested himself of schoolboy attitudes. He was unburdened by the desire to be a martyr or a hero. Any thoughts in that direction Belgica effectively had quashed. Heroism in the corrupt sense of the age almost by definition meant wanton self-sacrifice and bungling. For neither had he any taste. He wanted rational attainment; victory but not at any price. No point upon the globe was worth the cost of a single life.

Tree of Liberty: A tree set up by the people hung with flags and devices and crowned with a cap of liberty. The Americans of the United States planted poplars and other trees during the war of independence as symbols of growing freedom. The Jacobins in Paris planted their first tree of liberty in 1790. The symbols used in France to decorate their trees of liberty were tricoloured ribbons circles to indicate unity triangles to signify equality and a cap of liberty. Trees of liberty were planted by the Italians in the revolution of 1848.

Legislators who are of even average intelligence stand out among their colleagues.... A cultured college president has become as much a rarity as a literate newspaper publisher. A financier interested in economics is as exceptional as a labor leader interested in the labor movement.

Never before has information been so important to governments and businesses alike. And please don't imagine that some of you gathered here today may be less concerned than others. Globalization means that the butterfly effect is everywhere at work. The mistakes of a stockbroker in Singapore or the collapse of the Baht in Bangkok the decisions of a Finnish industrial concern or what the Governor of Minas Gerais in Brazil decides to do about his State's debt have had consequences for the world as a whole. More than raw information what I expect from you is shrewd judgement and foresight. I also expect you to have the courage to commit yourself by proposing new initiatives.

Many love music but for musics sake Many because her touches can awake Thoughts that repose within the breast half-dead And rise to follow where she loves to lead. What various feelings come from days gone by! What tears from far-off sources dim the eye! Few when light fingers with sweet voices play And melodies swell pause and melt away Mind how at every touch at every tone A spark of life hath glistened and hath gone.

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.

It was said that the brutes cannot reason. Only persons who do not themselves reason about the subject with the facts before them can any longer occupy such a position.

For me the principal fact of life is the free mind. For good and evil man is a free creative spirit. This produces the very queer world we live in a world in continuous creation and therefore continuous change and insecurity. A perpetually new and lively world but a dangerous one full of tragedy and injustice. A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.

What greater delight is there than to behold the earth apparelled with plants as with a robe of embroidered works set with Orient pearls and garnished with the great diversitie of rare and costly jewels.

Knowing then that the ratio that the height of the tree bears to the length of the measuring stick must equal the ratio that the distance from my eye to the base of the tree bears to my height and knowing (or being able to find out) my height the length of the measuring stick and the distance from my eye to the base of the tree I can therefore calculate the height of the tree. What is an umbrella?

Spiritual power is a force which history clearly teaches has been the greatest force in the development of men. Ye. we have been merely playing with it and never have really studied it as we have the physical forces. Some day people will learn that material things do not bring happiness and are of little use in making people creative and powerful. Then the scientists of the world will turn their laboratories over to the study of spiritual forces which have hardly been scratched.

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.

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

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.

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.

Her brain is a speck of neural tissue a few millimeters long about a million times smaller than a human brain. With this almost microscopic clump of nerve cells she knows how to manage her new legs and wings to walk and to fly to find her way by some unknown means of navigation over thousands of miles from Massachusetts to Mexico. How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

The Humanist lives as if this world were all and enough. He is not otherworldly. He holds that the time spent on the contemplation of a possible afterlife is time wasted. 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.

A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're fast asleep In dreams you will lose your heartache Whatever you wish for you keep Have faith in your dreams and someday Your rainbow will come smiling through No matter how your heart is grieving If you keep on believing The dream that you wish will come true A dream is a wish your heart makes When you're feeling small Alone in the night you whisper Thinking no one can hear you at all You wake with the morning sunlight To find fortune that is smiling on you Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow For all you know tomorrow The dream that you wish will come true.

There was too much noise. Sirens from police cars and ambulances. Shouts from the crowd on the street eighteen floors below. Traffic from other streets and all of the noises of San Francisco. 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.

It takes more time and effort and delicacy to learn the silence of a people than to learn its sounds. Some people have a special gift for this. Perhaps this explains why some missionaries notwithstanding their efforts never come to speak properly to communicate delicately through silences.

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.

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.

By whatever basis human desires are classified the promise of an abundant life covers virtually all. To the spiritual it suggests escape from futility; to the sensuous it calls up visions of luxury; to the defeated it is a dream of success. To the idle it pledges ease; to the weary rest; to the frightened it means safety; to the anxious security; and to the improvident it conjures inexhaustible resources. Persuade a man that you can give him the thing he most desires and you will be his hero; offer him justification for his failures and he will be your disciple; assure him a boundless supply of loaves and fishes and he will seek to make you king.

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.

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.

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

At the same time he asks for His grace expresses his needs and those of his brothers in suffering. Such a type of prayer demands complete renovation.

Well this is the end of a perfect day Near the end of a journey too; But it leaves a thought that is big and strong With a wish that is kind and true. For memory has painted this perfect day With colours that never fade And we find at the end of a perfect day The soul of a friend weve made.

Many kinds of religion are available some not even skin deep some mad and unsubstantial some as harmless as the rouge on the skin of a spinster. A good bit of religion today seems shallow. It does not seem to matter except behind stained glass windows on Sunday morning. It is not dishonest religion so much as restricted religion meaning it does not serve the purpose a way of thinking for a special time and a special place. It answers a thousand questions we have not asked and by its supposed sacred customs smothers the questions we might ask or die. For the truth is that our world is both hungry for faith and sick of it..

So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures; so in the mathematics that use which is collateral and intervenient is no less worthy than that which is principal and intended.

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.

If every person has the right to defend even by force his person his liberty and his property then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly. Thus since an individual cannot lawfully use force against the person liberty or property of another individual then the common force for the same reason cannot lawfully be used to destroy the person liberty or property of individuals or groups.

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

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.

Agency or the power to choose was ours as spirit children of our Creator before the world was. It is a gift from God nearly as precious as life itself. Often however agency is misunderstood. While we are free to choose once we have made those choices we are tied to the consequence of those choices. We are free to take drugs or not. But once we choose to use a habit-forming drug we are bound to the consequences of that choice. Addiction surrenders later freedom to choose.

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 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.

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. Worse its pacing is erratic. Some chapters are little more than a few sentences in length while others stretch into volumes. Life for all its raw talent has little sense of structure. It creates amazing textures but it cant be counted on for snappy beginnings or good endings either. Indeed in many cases no ending is provided at all.

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.

But at least they are not intimidated. Of what use is freedom of speech to those who fear to offend?

Free inquiry if restrained within due bounds and applied to proper subjects is a most important privilege of the human mind; and if well conducted is one of the greatest friends to truth. But when reason knows neither its office nor its limits and when employed on subjects foreign to its jurisdiction it then becomes a privilege dangerous to be exercised.

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.

If we never find it in reality in life we cannot reveal the true Christlike character at all we will always be trying earnestly to be something but on too superficial and obvious a plane.

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

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.

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

Organismic awareness is what we on the Ego Level ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is nonsymbolic nonconceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the nondual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

Understand yourself, in order to better understand others. Visualize it. Want it more than anything. Xcellerate your efforts. You are unique of all God's creations. Zero in on your target and go for it.

When the mathematician says that such and such a proposition is true of one thing it may be interesting and it is surely safe. But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything though it is much more interesting it is also much more dangerous. In the transition from one to all from the specific to the general mathematics has made its greatest progress and suffered its most serious setbacks of which the logical paradoxes constitute the most important part. For if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently it must first set its affairs in order at home.

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.

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.

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.

... 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.

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.

It seems to me that the thing that makes the theater worthwhile is the fact that it attracts so many people with ideas who are constantly trying to share them with the public. Real art is illumination. It gives a man an idea he never had before or lights up ideas that were formless or only lurking in the shadows of his mind. It adds stature to life.

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.

God will take care of tomorrow With him each tomorrow must rest And we hold this a sure conviction When we give each today our best!

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.

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.

You need not choose evil; but have only to fail to choose good and you drift fast enough toward evil. You do not need to say I will be bad you have only to say I will not choose Gods choice and the choice of evil is already settled.

The boss drives his men; the leader coaches them. The boss depends upon authority; the leader on good will. The boss inspires fear; the leader inspires enthusiasm. The boss says I; the leader we. The boss fixes the blame for the breakdown; the leader fixes the breakdown. The boss says go; the leader says lets go!

If men and nations did reach up to God with all their hearts war would cease. If love of God were in the heart of man a man would have no desire to destroy his brother. There would be no dishonesty if the love of God were in the heart. If God came first in his life a man would love his neighbor as himself and instead of taking from him he would feel to give.

Opera once was an important social instrument especially in Italy. With Rossini and Verdi people were listening to opera together and having the same catharsis with the same story the same moral dilemmas. They were holding hands in the darkness. That has gone. Now perhaps they are holding hands watching television.

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