She provides the basic material the seed and the soil the nourishing matrix and the elements of the plant which man then raises models paints and sculpts in his own way.

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 prohibition is general. No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretence by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power either should attempt it this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.

On Broadway it was still bright afternoon and the gassy air was almost motionless under the leaden spokes of sunlight and sawdust footprints lay about the doorways of butcher shops and fruit stores. And the great great crowd the inexhaustible current of millions of every race and kind pouring out pressing round of every age of every genius possessors of every human secret antique and future in every face the refinement of one particular motive or essence I labor I spend I strive I design I love I cling I uphold I give way I envy I long I scorn I die I hide I want.

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

A short term view will lead to a partial and perhaps twisted view of the whole picture. A crucial element may be missing. We may not be running the entire race. A friend of mine described a colleague as great at running the ninety-five yard dash. That is a distinction I can do without. Lacking the last five yards makes the first ninety-five pointless. In fact serious runners thing of it as a 110 yard dash so that no one will best them in the last few yards. Youve got to think beyond the whole.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

People like you are so content to write-off English. English just isnt about analysing stories if it was I wouldnt be like this. Stories novels whatever ... reflect something about the writer ... and the culture ... and the society that it came from. Its a mirror a mirror to ourselves. And when we do it right when we just get it we know something about ourselves. English is an understanding of the self. If we can see ourselves clearly we know the right decision to make.

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.

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....

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.

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. But this ministry is exercised in and towards the Church so as to enable the Church itself to carry out the ministry of the Servant. The Messiah came as a Servant; his ministers are servants; and the Church he created is a Servant-Church.

Though dark my path and sad my lot Let me be still and murmur not; But breathe the prayer divinely taught Thy will be done. What though in lonely grief I sigh For friends beloved no longer nigh Submissive still would I reply Thy will be done. If thou shouldst call me to resign What most I prizeit neer was mine I only yield Thee what was Thine; Thy will be done. If but my fainting heart be blest With thy sweet spirit for its guest My God to Thee I leave the rest; Thy will be done.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Early on in the space race NASA spent much time and effort seeking a metal robust enough to withstand the heat of reentry and protect the astronauts. The endeavor failed.

The solution the ablative heat shield had characteristics just opposite to those originally sought. Rather than withstanding the heat it slowly burnt away and carried the heat away from the vehicle.

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true. The word people applies to all the individual inhabitants of a country.... That portion of them who individually mean well never was nor until the millennium will be considerable. Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive. Yet I wish to see all unjust and unnecessary discriminations everywhere abolished and that the time may come when all our inhabitants of every color and discrimination shall be free and equal partakers of our political liberties.

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.

...[E.H.] Moore ws presenting a paper on a highly technical topic to a large gathering of faculty and graduate students from all parts of the country. 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.

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.

Any God who is to be of any use to civilization to suffering humanity or to religion must have in some way or other some at least of the attributes not of a substance or of a force but of a person. He must be interested as science is not in good and beautiful and holy.... Let us face the facts and admit as some do not that there are some services to civilization which science cannot render.

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. In the Judaic faith this was the tree in the garden of Eden; the Scandinavians made it an ash Ygdrasil; Christians usually specify the tree as an apple Hindus as a soma Persians as a homa Cambodians as a talok; this early treee is the vine of Bacchus the snake-entwined caduceus of Mercury the twining creeper of the Eddas the bohidruma of Buddha the fig of Isaiah the tree of Aesculapius with the serpent around his trunk.

In the mathematics I can report no deficience except that it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the pure mathematics in that they do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties intellectual. For if the wit be too dull they sharpen it; if too wandering they fix it; if too inherent in the sense they abstract 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.

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.

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.

Therefore the need of faith is not something imposed on us dogmatically but it is written in us intrinsically. We cannot live without it. To live by worry is to live against Reality.

Even fairly good students when they have obtained the solution of the problem and written down neatly the argument shut their books and look for something else. Doing so they miss an important and instructive phase of the work.... A good teacher should understand and impress on his students the view that no problem whatever is completely exhausted. One of the first and foremost duties of the teacher is not to give his students the impression that mathematical problems have little connection with each other and no connection at all with anything else. We have a natural opportunity to investigate the connections of a problem when looking back at its solution.

Production in your thought factory is under the charge of two foremen one of whom we will call Mr. Triumph and the other Mr. Defeat. Mr. Triumph is in charge of manufacturing positive thoughts. He specialises in producing reasons why you can why you're qualified why you will. The other foreman Mr. Defeat produces negative depreciating reasons why you can't why you're weak why you're inadequate. His specialty is the why-you-will-fail chain of thoughts.

Biology occupies a position among the sciences at once marginal and central. Marginal becausethe living world constituting but a tiny and very special part of the universeit does not seem likely that the study of living beings will ever uncover general laws applicable outside the biosphere. But if the ultimate aim of the whole of science is indeed as I believe to clarify mans relationship to the universe then biology must be accorded a central position ...

I see the situation as follows. There are various philosophical views mutually incompatible which cannot be dismissed or simply rejected. Philosophys output is the basketful of these admissible views all together. One delimiting strategy would be to modify and shave these views capturing what is true in each to make them compatible parts of one new view. This book puts forward its explanations in a very tentative spirit; not only do I not ask you to believe that they are correct I do not think it important for me to believe them correct either. Still I do believe and hope you will find it so that these proposed explanations are illuminating and worth considering that they are worth surpassing; also that the process of seeking and elaborating explanations being open to new possibilities the new wonderings and wanderings the free explanation is itself a delight.

Some people mistake weakness for tact. If they are silent when they ought to speak and so feign an agreement they do not feel they call it being tactful. Cowardice would be a much better name. Tact is an active quality t hat is not exercised by merely making a dash for cover. Be sure when you think you are being extremely tactful that you are not in reality running away from something you ought to face.

The Christian clearly understands that Jesus does not reveal all that is signified by the word God but only as much as could be revealed through a perfect human personality living in absolute obedience to Gods will. The knowledge of God that men have by virtue of Jesus revelation is quite enough for men to live by in this life and to live gloriously and thankfully by Christians maintain the knowledge that God the Creator the Almighty and Eternal the Lord of history is mans Heavenly Father and that love might well be and indeed is the ultimate meaning of human existence.

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.

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

He [Satan] has power over us to that extent [to tempt us] in this fallen condition. At the same time we have the sweet influence of the Spirit of God pleading with us to do that which is right pleading with every human being that does not drive it from him; for every human being has a portion of the Spirit of God given unto him. We sometimes call it conscience; we call it by one name and we call it by another; but it is the Spirit of God that every man and woman possesses that is born on the earth. God has given unto all his children this Spirit.... Everywhere throughout the earth where man dwells this Spirit rests upon him. It comes from God. It pleads with man to do right. It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

So long as you live and in whatever circumstances the kaleidoscope of life may place you think for yourself and act in accordance with the conclusions of that thinking; avoid so far as possible drifting with the current of the mob or being too easily influenced by the outward manifestation of things. Take your own look beneath the surface and don't trust others to look for you.

I have often thought that the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which when it came upon him he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive. At such moments there is a voice inside which speaks and says: This is the real me!

An obvious fact about negative feelings is often overlooked. They are caused by us not by exterior happenings. An outside event presents the challenge but we react to it. So we must attend to the way we take things not to the things themselves.

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.

Theres a touch of the priesthood in the academic world a sense that a scholar should not be distracted by the mundane tasks of day-to-day living. I used to have great stretches of time to work. Now I have research thoughts while making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Sure its impossible to write down ideas while reading curious George to a two-year-old. On the other hand as my husband was leaving graduate school for his first job his thesis advisor told him You may wonder how a professor gets any research done when one has to teach advise students serve on committees referee papers write letters of recommendation interview prospective faculty. Well I take long showers.

We have heard enough about being practical and efficient and prudent. We heard it preached through several decades that these things would save the world. I think that with the salty taste of blood and sweat on our lips we are learning that we had best talk once again about doing what is right.

A man is literally what he thinks his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.... How could a person possibly become what he is not thinking? Nor is any thought when persistently entertained too small to have its effect. The divinity that shapes our ends is indeed in ourselves. It is one's very self.

The information revolution has changed people's perception of wealth. We originally said that land was wealth. Then we thought it was industrial production. Now we realize it's intellectual capital. The market is showing us that intellectual capital is far more important that money. This is a major change in the way the world works. the same thing that happened to the farmers during the Industrial Revolution is now happening to people in industry as we move into the information age.

One can get lost in their garden and the rest of the world ceases to exist if only for a while. Anger disipates with every shovel of dirt moved pleasure is found in the simplest forms excitement is felt as each tiny plant matures and then triumph with the harvest of the first tomato of the season. The love of gardening never goes away. Even if someone is unable to garden themselves they enjoy the gardens of others.
