A koan is simply the time and place where Truth is manifest. >From the fundamental point of view there is no time or place where Truth is not revealed: every place every day every event every thought every deed and every person is a koan.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide; When other helpers fail and comforts flee Help of the helpless O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day; Earths joys grow dim its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou Who changest not abide with me. I need Thy presence evry passing hour; What but Thy grace can foil the tempters powr? Who like Thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine O abide with me. I fear no foe with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight and tears no bitterness; Where is deaths sting? where grave thy victory? I triumph still if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies; Heavns morning breaks and earths vain shadows flee; In life in death O Lord abide with me.

John Donne   Category: Unsorted

Knowledge alone does not stop men from evil. The poor and the ignorant are not the greatest sinners. Mans mind may unfold his intellect grow more keen his understanding more profound yet side by side with this may be a moral degeneration such as existed in pagan Greece and Rome.

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.

Jack H. Goaslind Jr.   Category: Unsorted

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.

Hands untrained in the use of tools destroy what they want to build. It takes skill to use tools to achieve the result desired whether its tearing down an old house or building a new one.

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.

Richard Crashaw   Category: Unsorted

Two lights for guidance. The first our little glowing atom of community with all that it signifies. The second the cold light of the stars symbol of the hypercosmical reality with its crystal ecstasy. Strange that in this light in which even the dearest love is frostily asserted and even the possible defeat of our half-waking world is contemplated without remission of praise the human crisis does not lose but gains significance. Strange that it seems more not less urgent to play some part in this struggle this brief effort of animacules striving to win for their race some increase of lucidity before the ultimate darkness.

No doubt many of you have had your portraits penciled upon the canvas by an artist and after he had drawn the outlines without filling it up or embellishing at all you looked at it and said That is not myself it does not look like me it belongs to some else. But when it came to be filled up and embellished perhaps you were ready to own it. Will you be willing to own the lasting picture of yourself which you are daily painting by your thoughts and deed? Will you be ready to own the self- portrait created by your life?

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.

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.

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.

I marvel that he would descend from his throne divine To rescue a soul so rebellious and proud as mine That he should extend his great love unto such as I Sufficient to own to redeem and to justify. I think of his hands pierced and bleeding to pay the debt! Such mercy such love and devotion can I forget?

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.

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.

There can be no freedom of the individual no democracy without the capital system the profit system the private enterprise system. These are in the end inseparable. Those who would destroy freedom have only first to destroy the hope of gain the profit of enterprise and risk-taking the hope of accumulating capital the hope to save something for ones old age and for ones children. For a community of men without property and without the hope of getting it by honest effort is a community of slaves of a despotic State.

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.

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....

Attaching significance to invariants is an effort to recognize what because of its form or colour or meaning or otherwise is important or significant in what is only trivial or ephemeral. A simple instance of failing in this is provided by the poll-man at Cambridge who learned perfectly how to factorize a^2 - b^2 but was floored because the examiner unkindly asked for the factors of p^2 - q^2.

In many cases mathematics is an escape from reality. The mathematician finds his own monastic niche and happiness in pursuits that are disconnected from external affairs. Some practice it as if using a drug. Chess sometimes plays a similar role. In their unhappiness over the events of this world some immerse themselves in a kind of self-sufficiency in mathematics. (Some have engaged in it for this reason alone.)

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.

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.

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.

Trees have from time immemorial been closely associated with magic. These stout members of the vegetable kingdom may stand for as long as a thousand years and tower far above our mortal heads. As such they are symbols and keepers of unlimited power longevity and timelessness. An untouched forest studded with trees of all ages sizes and types is more than a mysterious magical place it is one of the energy reservoirs of nature. Within its boundaries stand ancient and new sentinels guardians of the universal force which has manifested on the the Earth....

A self-made man if he is made at all has already won the battle of life.... he has learned to resist. He has learned the value of money and how to refuse to spend it. He has learned the value of time and how the conversion of it into useful things will make of his life something worthwhile. He has learned to say no to say no at the right time and then to stand by it. Without resistance and the self-denial which it often imposes there is no real happiness. In the quest for happiness man must learn that temptation resisted strengthens the mind and the soul.

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.

Of course we knew that the official reports were sketchy if not falsified. But in terms of information theory this is precisely where the problem lay: How were we to reconstruct reality from incomplete or false reports? It is not true that virtually all news in a totalitarian state is false. On the contrary most news is completely correct albeit tendentiously slanded; it is just that certain information is suppressed. One can adjust for the political slanting of the news but there is virtually no way to fill in the omissions.

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.

How can you shorten the subject? That stern struggle with the multiplication table for many people not yet ended in victory how can you make it less? Square root as obdurate as a hardwood stump in a pasturenothing but years of effort can extract it. You cant hurry the process. Or pass from arithmetic to algebra; you cant shoulder your way past quadratic equations or ripple through the binomial theorem. Instead the other way; your feet are impeded in the tangled growth your pace slackens you sink and fall somewhere near the binomial theorem with the calculus in sight on the horizon. So died for each of us still bravely fighting our mathematical training; except for a set of people called mathematicians -- born so like crooks.

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.

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.

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.

'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.

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.

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.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears. Bears are one of the places in the world where big mysteries run close to the surface.

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.

But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything though it is much more interesting it is also much more dangerous.

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.

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.

When a teacher of the future comes to point out to the youth of America how the highest rewards of intellect and devotion can be gained he may say to them not by subtlety and intrigue; not by wire pulling and demagoguery; not by the arts of popularity; not by skill and shiftiness in following expediency; but by being firm in devotion to the principles of manhood and the application of morals and the courage of righteousness in the public life of our country; by being a man without guile and without fear without selfishness and with devotion to duty devotion to his country.

My beloved young friends determine to serve one another. Opportunities for Christian acts of service do not always come at convenient times. Listen to the spirit when your flesh is weak.

The blessings are tenfold when we do those good kindly acts of Christian service when it is inopportune or not convenient.

(On the temperature of water in wells) The reason why the water in wells becomes colder in summer is that the earth is then rarefied by the heat and releases into the air all the heat-particles it happens to have. So the more the earth is drained of heat the colder becomes the moisture that is concealed in the ground. On the other hand when all the earth condenses and contracts and congeals with the cold then of course as it contracts it squeezes out into the wells whatever heat it holds.

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.

Ten Spiritual Tonics 1. Stop worrying. Worry kills life. 2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul. 3. Control appetite. Over-indulgence clogs body and mind. 4. Accept your limitations ... 5. Don't envy. It wastes time and energy. 6. Have faith in people. Cynicism sours the disposition. 7. Find a hobby. It will relax your nerves. 8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views. 9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence. 10. Try to want what you have instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

There is a marvelous story of a man who once stood before God his heart breaking from the pain and injustice in the world. Dear God. he cried out look at all the suffering the anguish and distress in your world. Why don't you send help? God respondedI did send help. I sent you. When we tell our children that story we must tell them that each one of them was sent to help repair the broken worldand that it is not the task of an instant or of a year but of a lifetime.

Aside from the strictly moral standpoint honesty is not only the best policy but the only possible policy from the standpoint of business relations. The fulfillment of the pledged word is of equal necessity to the conduct of all business. If we expect and demand virtue and honor in others the flame of both must burn brightly within ourselves and shed their light to illuminate the erstwhile dark corners of distrust and dishonesty.... The truthful answer rests for the most part within ourselves for like begets like. Honesty begets honesty; trust trust; and so on through the whole category of desirable practices that must govern and control the worlds affairs.

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

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.

Marriage is a relationship based in no small part on virtues. The most basic of these is responsibility for marriage is an arrangement held together by mutual dependence and reciprocal obligations. But successful marriages are about more than fulfilling the conditions of a contract. In good marriages men and women seek to improve themselves for the sake of their loved one. They offer and draw moral strength by sharing compassion courage honesty self-discipline and a host of other virtues. Husband and wives complete themselves through each other and the whole of the union becomes stronger and more wonderful than the sum of the two parts.

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.

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.

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.

A master was explaining the nature of Tao to one of his novices. The Tao is embodied in all software regardless of how insignificant said the master. Is Tao in a hand-held calculator? asked the novice. It is came the reply. Is the Tao in a video game? continued the novice. It is even in a video game said the master. And is the Tao in the DOS for a personal computer? The master coughed and shifted his position slightly. The lesson is over for today he said.

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.

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. And since falling he was openly exposed none may flatter himself that the cause of Christ is bound up with his reputation that the mischief must needs be averted which his downfall would entail that Providence must needs avert from him the natural penalties for evildoing. 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.

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....

In this way the divine image can be mirrored from the soul. It is part of the purging toll exacted of some to become acquainted with God. In the agonies of life we seem to listen better to the faint godly whisperings of the Divine Shepherd.

We do not choose to be born. We do not choose our parents. We do not choose our historical epoch or the country of our birth or the immediate circumstances of our upbringing. We do not most of us choose to die; nor do we choose the time or conditions of our death. But within all this realm of choicelessness we do choose how we shall live: courageously or in cowardice honorably or dishonorably with purpose or adrift. We decide what is important and what is trivial in life. We decide that what makes us significant is either what we do or what we refuse to do. But no matter how indifferent the universe may be to our choices and decisions these choices and decisions are ours to make. We decide. We choose. And as we decide and choose so are our lives formed. In the end forming our own destiny is what ambition is about.

It is true that when we take chances we stand to lose. But it is also true that we will never win anything if we never even enter the game. Lucky people are aware of the possibility of losing and indeed they may lose often. But since the chances they take are small the losses tend to be small. By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

I do not know what the cat can have eaten. Usually I know exactly what the cat has eaten. Not only have I fed it to the cat at the cats insistence but the cat has thrown it up on the rug and someone has tracked it all over on to the other rug. I do not know why cats are such habitual vomiters. They do not seem to enjoy it judging by the sounds they make while doing it. Its their nature. A dog is going to bark. A cat is going to vomit.

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.

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.

How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly?

Progress in every age results only from the fact that there are some men and women who refuse to believe that what they knew to be right cannot be done.

To me it seems basic to the getting rid of fear to know that our trials of whatever nature are not motiveless. In our present stage of development we could hardly do without them. So often looking ... ugly ... they are in reality the branches by we which we catch on and climb. They are not obstacles to happiness... . 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....

The time comes to every dog when it ceases to care for people merely for biscuits or bones or even for caresses and walks out of doors. When a dog really loves it prefers the person who gives it nothing and perhaps is too ill ever to take it out for exercise to all the liberal cooks and active dogboys in the world.

I am not basically a conservationist. When the last great whale is slaughtered as it surely will be the whales suffering will be over. This is not the whales loss but mans. I am not concerned about the wiping out of a species this is mans folly I have only one concern the suffering which we deliberately inflict upon animals whilst they live.

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

One cannot escape the feeling that these mathematical formulas have an independent existence and an intelligence of their own that they are wiser that we are wiser even than their discoverers that we get more out of them than was originally put into them.

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.

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.

The Holy Night We sate among the stalls at Bethlehem; The dumb kine from their fodder turning them Softened their horned faces To almost human gazes Toward the newly Born: The simple shepherds from the star-lit brooks Brought visionary looks As yet in their astonied hearing rung The strange sweet angel-tongue: The magi of the East in sandals worn Knelt reverent sweeping round With long pale beards their gifts upon the ground The incense myrrh and gold These baby hands were impotent to hold: So let all earthlies and celestials wait Upon thy royal state. Sleep sleep my kingly One!
