Unsorted quotes (6647)

[Scientific enterprise] is usually conceived as being made up of four main kinds of interrelated activities: gathering data finding parsimonious descriptions of the data formulating explanatory theories and testing the theories. Sometimes the second category (description) and third (explanation) are merged. (note that they do not consider new data measuring devices among other things)

When oxygen and hydrogen find one another their joining produces fiery passion. Out of this fire water is born. Quaint Victorian chemistry gives us an image of one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms in a fixed molecule that bounces around from place to place. The reality of water is not so orderly. The hydrogen atoms are not owned by any particular oxygen atom. 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.

Christ died on the Cross and at that instant death was vanquished forever.

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

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

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.

I believe that words can help us move or keep us paralysed and that our choices of language and verbal tone have something a great deal to do with how we live our lives and whom we end up speaking with and hearing; and that we can deflect words by trivialization of course but also by ritualized respect or we can let them enter our souls and mix with the juices of our minds.

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life. First we must see it in imagination; then we must long to make it a part of ourselves; then we shall guide our conduct by it we shall live it. An ideal is both light and power. It is light for conscience and motive-power for will. It is a standard by which we judge between right and wrong. When we see a noble ideal lived out in anothers life it gives us a holy discontent with ourselves until we make it our own and it makes more beautiful and strong our own character. This is the way of all progress as the world grows better for there is no progress without ideals....

The path of duty is the only path of safety. It is the only path wherein we can walk and have the assurance of Gods continued blessings of his continued deliverances. Any other course does not carry with it this assurance. Any other path leads to darkness to contention to evils of many kinds; for it leads away from the truth and the right. But if we continue in the path that is marked out for us by divine instruction trusting implicitly in God then shall we be delivered from all impending evils that are sought to be brought upon us no matter what they may be; and the nearer we live to God the greater will be the blessings showered upon us and seeming evils will be changed to blessings of untold worth.

The world of biology is full of miracles but nothing I have seen is as miraculous as the metamorphosis of the monarch caterpillar. Her brain is a speck of neural tissue a few millimeters long about a million times smaller than a human brain. With this almost microscopic clump of nerve cells she knows how to manage her new legs and wings to walk and to fly to find her way by some unknown means of navigation over thousands of miles from Massachusetts to Mexico. How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

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.

Give them all that can be given fairly on the principle that to him that giveth shall be given. Remember always that the recollection of quality remains long after the price is forgotten.

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.

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.

There are many things which a person can do alone but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is above all things a state of union with Christ and of union of his followers with one another love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God. Resentment toward any human being cannot exist in the same heart with love to God. The personal relationship to Christ can only be realized when one has come to himself as a member of His Body the Christian fellowship.

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.

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.

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

Have I been sent here to amuse myself? to enjoy myself a little? ... to forget the miseries of a beyond which I no longer remember? Am I not unwelcome here? What should I say to all these questions? Thinking almost from the moment of my arrival that I was doing some good down here I began to play a few musical airs which I myself had invented.... All my troubles stemmed from there.

An executive cannot gradually dismiss details. Business is made up of details and I notice that the chief executive who dismisses them is quite likely to dismiss his business. Success is the sum of detail. It might perhaps be pleasing to imagine oneself beyond detail and engaged only in great things but as I have often observed if one attends only to great things and lets the little things pass the great things become little; that is the business shrinks. It is not possible for an executive to hold himself aloof from anything. No business no matter what its size can be called safe until it has been forced to learn economy and rigidly to measure values of men and materials.

It concerns his relationships with himself and his fellow men with his environment and with God his creator. It is therefore limitless and as boundless as that eternity which it teaches lies ahead of every son of God.... Here is the spirit of true religion an honest seeking after knowledge of all things of heaven and earth.

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.

Life's clock The clock of life is wound but once and no man has the power To tell just when the hands will stop at late or early hour. To lose one's wealth is sad indeed to lose one's health is more To lose one's soul is such a loss as no man can restore. The present only is our own live love toil with a will; Place no faith in tomorrow for the clock may then be still.

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.

In the business world vendors and clients alike use it to explain away huge mistakes and best of all without assigning responsibility to anyone. It is the verbal Get-Out-of-Jail card for the 90s.

'Twas a sheep not a lamb that strayed away In the parable Jesus told; A grown-up sheep that had gone astray From the ninety and none in the fold. Out on the hillside out in the cold Twas a sheep the good shepherd sought And back to the flock safe in the fold Twas a sheep the good shepherd brought. And why for the sheep should we earnestly long And a earnestly hope and pray Because there is danger if they go astray. For the lambs will follow the sheep you know Wherever the sheep may stray; When the sheep go wrong it will not be long Till the lambs are as wrong as they. And so with the sheep we earnestly plead For the sake of the lambs today; If the lambs are lost; what a terrible cost Some sheep will have to pay.

What we call yugen lies within the mind and cannot be expressed in words. Its quality may be suggested by the sight of a gauzy cloud veiling the moon or by the autumnal mists swathing the scarlet leaves on a mountainside. If one is asked where yugen can be found in these sights one cannot say; a man who cannot understand this truth is quite likely to prefer the sight of the moon shining brightly in a cloudless sky. It is quite impossible to explain wherein lies the interest or wonder of yugen.

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.

Contingency embraced without any nostalgia or yearning for necessary truth yields a different quality of life than contingency assented to as necessarily so in the absence of any conceivable alternative.

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 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.

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.

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

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 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.

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.

Secretary of State under Roosevelt testifying before the Joint Committee on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack in regard to remarks he had made to the War Council on November 28 1941. I emphasized that in my opinion the Japanese were likely to break out at any time with new acts of conquest and that the matter of safeguarding our national security was in the hands of the Army and the Navy. With due deference I expressed my judgement that any plans for our military defense should include an assumption that the Japanese might make the element of surprise a central point in their strategy and also might attack at various points simultaneously with a view to demoralizing efforts of defense and of coordination.

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.

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.

It is remarkable how much mediocrity we live with surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote your being average. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a limit you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to having what your really want is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do.

You can domesticate your body but you can't domesticate your face even by having a lift or having your nose bobbed. A face bears the reflection of our nature which in the beginning is veiled by the attractiveness of youth. But as soon as youth begins to go everything written on the face starts to come to the surface and pretty soon it's engraved there. No landscape can equal a human face that's been molded by its own owner.

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.

Adults interfere with a natural biologic development of the childs motor visual mental and artistic abilities when they try to influence the childs work in the early years. The adults brain has accumulated much more visual and artistic memory than the childs so there can be no true meeting of adult and child mind unless the adult knows how the childs mind functions in art.

Gelfand amazed me by talking of mathematics as though it were poetry. He once said about a long paper bristling with formulas that it contained the vague beginnings of an idea which could only hint at and which he had never managed to bring out more clearly. I had always thought of mathematics as being much more straightforward: a formula is a formula and an algebra is an algebra but Gelfand found hedgehogs lurking in the rows of his spectral sequences!

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.

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.

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.

Who made you? a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then measuring the length of a baby with his hands replied: God made me this long and I growed the rest. The mistake that was his in leaving out God in his growth suggests the truth that we are partly self-made men. God and parenthood and birthplace partly make us but we must make the rest by will and work.

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