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.

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

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.
Jacques Rene Chirac   Category: Unsorted

At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isnt as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate his future his whole expanse and world.
Rainer Maria Rilke   Category: Unsorted

Luis Vaz de Camões   Category: Unsorted

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.
Sir Frank Medlicott   Category: Unsorted

A sure way for one to lift himself up is by helping to lift someone else.
Booker T. Washington   Category: Unsorted

I think the main culprit is modernity itself. Modernity and beauty simply don't mix. Pragmatism and an industrial-sized busyness denigrate everything that cant squeeze out of a calculator. And the first thing to die under such circumstances is a passion for beauty. For those trying desperately to jump over moving hurdles pursuing beauty is just foolishness.... We just don't have the time for poetry; beauty isnt useful we say until were in our eighties when many finally reflect and realize that beauty was truly essential to a good life that has now slipped by.

Walter Russel Lord Brain   Category: Unsorted

Believe if you will that there may have been faults in our industrial system yet the fact remains that the welfare of the average man has not so far advanced under any other form of government and that whatever evil exists will not be corrected by delegating to government with all its weaknesses the authority to run and control all business and to control the daily lives and activities of laboring mankind. Nor will any existing waste and extravagance of government be eliminated or appreciably diminished until the average man realizes that the burden of paying its bills will through direct or indirect taxation ultimately fall upon him his children or his childrens children.

It is sometimes frightening to observe the success which comes even to the outlaw with a polished technique and we find ourselves doubting the validity of the virtues we have been taught. But I believe we must reckon with character in the end for it is as potent a force in world conflict as it is in our own domestic affairs. It strikes the last blow in any battle.

The essence of peace is to merge two opposites. Therefore your notions should not scare you if you see another who absolutely opposes you and you presume that there is no chance for peace between you two. On the same token when you see two individuals who are exactly two opposites never say it would be impossible for them to reconcile. On the contrary and this is the perfection of peace to make it between two opposites.

It is my solemn witness that God lives and that Jesus is the Christ. He lives and loves us and desires our happiness always. He died for us not because he had to but because he wanted to. He would die again if it would help us. Through Christ and the Father a plan was laid out which gave purpose and promise to mortal life even though Satan would declare it meaningless and futile.

There is a theory of societal evolution that goes like this: Barbarians invent a new culture. A middle class emerges to manage and help perpetuate the culture. An aristocracy eventually develops out of the middle class and devotes their energies to making things comfortable for themselves. Finally a new set of barbarians smash everything apart and destroy the status quo so that the process must start all over again.

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.

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.

I cannot feel good about being a woman unless you feel bad about being a man. I cannot be proud of being black unless you are ashamed of being white. I cannot respect myself for being gay unless you are embarrassed that you are straight. Tolerance has been put by the boards; it is a stale and bitter thing and we will have none of it. Equality likewise; is condescending at best and in truth intended to demean. If I am to achieve the inner harmony and self-respect that is my due it will not suffice for you and I to be equals. No! Nothing less than superiority will make me happy. And to ensure that I make my point I shall commend your libraries to the flames rewrite your histories purge your dictionaries and arm the thought police with power to enforce political correctness in all speech and apprehension.

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.

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.

The antithesis of democracy is class dictatorship whether by groups of bankers investors managers politicians lawyers or union members. Over a considerable part of the world the unspeakable doctrine is being preached that the ideal of a democratic State is a snare and a delusion. A politician if he denies the existence of the essentials of democracy and denies it in such a way as to create class feeling is not working in the interest of democracy even though he protests to the high heavens that that is his objective.

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.

Is anybody happier because you passed his way? Does anyone remember that you spoke to him today? The day is almost over and its toiling time is through. Is there anyone to utter now a kindly word of you? Can you say tonight in parting with the day thats slipping fast That you helped a single brother of the many that you passed? Is a single heart rejoicing over what you did or said; Does the man whose hopes were fading now with courage look ahead? Did you waste the day or lose it? Was it well or sorely spent? Did you leave a trail of kindness or a scar of discontent? As you close your eyes in slumber do You that that GOD will say You have earned one more tomorrow by the work you did today?

The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly.

It is my strong contention that there is an infinitely higher thrill which like climbing a mountain or singing a beautiful song once experienced never stops begging to be repeated.

It has its development in private and personal decisions to test that law through acts of faith followed by effort. And the consummation of that thrill comes in watching and indeed experiencing body and soul the miraculous unfolding of events as they proceed by methods far beyond our feeble capacities to dream of.

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.

By the same token the men who stand out in our history to whom we pay the highest homage are the men of personality principle and ideals who combining sympathy and good will with unbending loyalty to great truths defied the cynical spirit and wrought disinterestedly for the common good. By as much as Masonry creates such men and endows them with moral ideals by so much does it render its highest service to the country and the Craft.

Israel Salanter Lipkin   Category: Unsorted

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.

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.

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.

We must drop the idea that change comes slowly. It does ordinarily in part because we think it does. Today changes must come fast; and we must adjust our mental habits so that we can accept comfortably the idea of stopping one thing and beginning another overnight. We must discard the idea that past routine past ways of doing things are probably the best ways. On the contrary we must assume that there is probably a better way to do almost everything. We must stop assuming that a thing which has never been done before probably cannot be done at all.

An artist wished to paint a face The symbol of innocence and joy; He sought a child for his ideal And drew the likeness of a boy. Long years passed on. The artist now A gray old man one picture more Designed to make and call it Guilt A contrast to the child of yore. He went into a dungeon dark Its cold walls damp with slime. And painted a wretched man chained there Condemned to death for crime. Beside the other he placed the last; And when he learned the prisoners name He found the innocent laughing child And the hardened man were but the same. Montagu Gere

Every call of duty has its place in this ideal; every irksome job every wearisome responsibility. The fact that we are not always aware of it in no way annuls the other fact that it is so....

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

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.

Work is ... becoming suffused with leisure values.... Executives on an expense account hardly know whether they are at leisure or at work; they assume it must be the latter since they are getting paid for what they do. The same executives pushed into some time-consuming civic activity have only the somewhat melancholy reassurance of receiving no compensation to testify to this being leisure.

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.

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

Interest in global circumnavigation is older than Christianity itself. In fact if the following quotation is to be credited some attempts at circumnavigation predated the birth of Christ: As for the rest of the distance around the inhabited earth which has not been visited by us up to the present time (because of the fact that the navigators who sailed in opposite directions never met) it is not of very great extent if we reckon from the parallel distances that have been traversed by us... For those who undertook circumnavigation and turned back without having achieved their purpose say that they were made to turn back not because of any continent that stood in their way and hindered their further advance inasmuch as the sea still continued open as before but because of their destitution and loneliness.

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.

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.

We watch the liner in the distance glide Out from the sheltered waters of the bay Into the arms of ocean's vastness won. Enfolded in infinity of tide We lose it and the last faint smoke line gray Merges into the sunset and is gone. Vanished from sight and lost art thou at sea Swallowed in oceans blue immensity? Ah no. Though trackless be the deep and wide Thy pilot shall bring thee triumphantly Into the harbor on the other side.

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.

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.

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....

Then uncertainty gives way to the conviction that it can or cant be done.

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns and water because one may drown in it... The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

And good conversation reverberates: it keeps on talking in your mind later in the day; the next day you find yourself still conversing with what was said. That reverberation afterward is the very raising of consciousness; your minds been moved. You are at another level with your reflections.

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.

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.

The topocosm is not only the actual and present living community but also that continuous entity of which the present community is but the current manifestation.

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.

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.

Because of the law of gravitation the apple falls to the ground. Because of the law of growth the acorn becomes a mighty oak. Because of the law of causation a man is as he thinketh in his heart. Nothing can happen without its adequate cause.

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years a number of companies in a wide range of industries from airlines to steel computers to hotels have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers good hires from bad and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring they believe is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

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 past kong-an (koan) practicing meant checking someones enlightenment. Now we use kong-ans to make our lives correct.... You must use kong-ans to take away your opinions. When you take away your opinions your mind is clear like space which means from moment to moment you can reflect any situation and respond correctly and meticulously.

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.

The sun truly comes up like thunder and it sets just as fast. Each sunrise and sunset lasts only a few seconds. But in that time you see at least eight different bands of color come and go from a brilliant red to the brightest and deepest blue. And you see sixteen sunrises and sixteen sunsets every day youre in space. No sunrise or sunset is ever the same.
