GILDA RADNER ON DOCTORS Doctors are whippersnappers in ironed white coats Who spy up your rectums and look down your throats And press you and poke you with sterilized tools And stab at solutions that pacify fools.

I know not why His hand is laid In chastening on my life Nor why it is my little world Is filled so full of strife; I know not why when faith looks up And seeks for rest from pain That oer my sky fresh clouds arise And drench my path with rain. I know not why my prayer so long By Him has been denied; Nor why while others ships sail on Mine should in port abide. But I do know that God is love That He my burden shares And though I may not understand I know for me He cares. I know the heights for which I long Are often reached through pain I know the sheaves must needs be threshed To yield the golden grain. Tis that I thus may learn to love And know as I am known I will not care how rough the road That leads me to my home.

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

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.

Poetry often introduces a mythological dimension which reflects the close connections between the gods and commonly encountered trees. A passage from Vergils Georgics in which the poet enumerates grafted trees and miraculous growth incorporates several such mythological references: myrtles sacred to Venus; the poplar crown of Hercules; and the acorns of Jupiters symbolic oak referring to his grove at Dodona. The pine was held sacred to Pan the Roman Faunus and in his Eclogues Vergil describes the pastoral gods home on Mt. Maenalus in Arcadia. Propertius stresses the gods fondness for the tree and Horace for his part dedicates a pine to the goddess Diana in a famous ode.

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.

For society as a whole nothing comes as a right to which we are entitled. Even bare subsistence has to be producedand produced at a cost of heavy toil for much of human history. The only way anyone can have a right to something that has to be produced is to force someone else to produce it for him. The more things are provided as rights the less the recipients have to work and the more others have to carry their load.

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.

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.

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.

The world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are frightened and look for failure and poverty you will get them no matter how hard you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself in what life will do for you cuts you off from the good things of the world. Expect victory and you make victory. Nowhere is this truer than in business life where bravery and faith bring both material and spiritual rewards.

We picture death as coming to destroy; let us rather picture Christ as coming to save. We think of death as ending; let us rather think of life as beginning and that more abundantly. We think of losing; let us think of gaining. We think of parting let us think of meeting. We think of going away; let us think of arriving. And as the voice of death whispers You must go from earth let us hear the voice of Christ saying You are but coming to me!

Some people would say my paintings show a future world and maybe they do but I paint from reality. I put several things and ideas together and perhaps when I have finished it could show the future. If people want to interpret my work as warnings about too much overpopulation disease and mechanization in the future then that is up to them. I like to combine human beings creatures and biomechanics. And I love to work with bones they are elemental and function and after all are part of human beings. I have many bones in my home in Zurich and I study them and use them as models. Some people say my work is often depressing and pessimistic with the emphasis on death blood overcrowding strange beings and so on but I don't really think it is. There is hope and a kind of beauty in there somewhere if you look for it.

The search for truth is as it always has been the noblest expression of the human spirit. Mans insatiable desire for knowledge about himself about his environment and the forces by which he is surrounded gives life its meaning and purpose and clothes it with final dignity....

Unless we can anchor our knowledge to moral purposes the ultimate result will be dust and ashes dust and ashes that will bury the hopes and monuments of men beyond recovery.

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.

A Johns Hopkins doctor says that we do not know why it is that the worriers die sooner than the non-worriers but that is a fact. But I who am simple of mind think I know; we are inwardly constructed in nerve and tissue and brain cell and soul for faith and not for fear. God made us that way. Therefore the need of faith is not something imposed on us dogmatically but it is written in us intrinsically. We cannot live without it. To live by worry is to live against Reality.

Faith gives the courage to live and do. Scientists with their disciplined thinking like others need a basis for the good life for aspiration for courage to do great deeds.

Visions and hope and faith are not part of science. They are beyond the nature that science knows. Of such is the religion that gives meaning to life.

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....

Somewhere theres music how faint the tune.... Some tribal cultures believe that the act of creation takes place through music. They literally sing their homes their villages and their valleys into existence. They keep them strong and real regularly and ritually through music and belief. Its a little like prayer isnt it? Somewhere in the world someone is chanting their own universe into being right now. We modern folk are not so different from this. We speak of being in tune of needing harmony and rhythm to feel complete and alive. We create our own realities with our words and our songs our eyes and our hands. Each world is defined by our own outline the envelope of skin and nerves and light and air we inhabit. Every time we push against something we feel ourselves.

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.

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.

On Broadway it was still bright afternoon and the gassy air was almost motionless under the leaden spokes of sunlight and sawdust footprints lay about the doorways of butcher shops and fruit stores. And the great great crowd the inexhaustible current of millions of every race and kind pouring out pressing round of every age of every genius possessors of every human secret antique and future in every face the refinement of one particular motive or essence I labor I spend I strive I design I love I cling I uphold I give way I envy I long I scorn I die I hide I want. Faster much faster than any man could make the tally. The sidewalks were wider than any causeway; the street itself was immense and it quaked and gleamed and it seemed ... to throb at the last limit of endurance.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

[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)

Oh how lovely was the morning! Radiant beamed the sun above. Bees were humming Sweet birds Singing Music ringing through the grove. When within the shady woodland Joseph sought the God of love. Humbly kneeling sweet appealing `Twas the boys first uttered prayer When the powers of sin assailing Filled his soul with deep despair; But undaunted still he trusted In his heavnly Fathers care. Suddenly a light descended. Brighter far than noon-day sun And a shining glorious pillar Oer him fell around him shone. While appeared two heavnly beings God the Father and the Son. `Joseph this is my beloved; Hear Him! Oh how sweet the word! Josephs humble prayer was answered And he listened to the Lord. Oh what rapture filled his bosom For he saw the living God.

I asked an endurance swimmer How is it possible for you to swim for twenty hours? What kind of mental attitude do you have? She said I believe that the water is a friend. It wants to help me. It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. 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 requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

John W. Gardner the president of the Carnegie Corporation in an address said this: The most important moral of all is that excellence is where you find it. I would extend this generalization to cover not just higher education but all education from vocational high school to graduate school. We must learn to honor excellence indeed to demand it in every socially accepted human activity however humble that activity and to scorn shoddiness however exalted the activity. An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because philosophy is an exalted activity will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.

The scientist does not study nature because it is useful; he studies it because he delights in it and he delights in it because it is beautiful. If nature were not beautiful it would not be worth knowing and if nature were not worth knowing life would not be worth living. Of course I do not here speak of that beauty that strikes the senses the beauty of qualities and appearances; not that I undervalue such beauty far from it but it has nothing to do with science; I mean that profounder beauty which comes from the harmonious order of the parts and which a pure intelligence can grasp.

I tell you through a means which he has established by which we can love Him freely; ... that is we can be useful not to Him which is impossible but to our neighbor.... To show the love that we have for Him we ought to serve and love every rational creature and extend our charity to good and bad as much to one who does us ill service and criticizes us as to one who serves us.

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.

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.

I have often thought that the best way to define a man's character would be to seek out the particular mental or moral attitude in which when it came upon him he felt himself most deeply and intensely active and alive.

When I reflect that one man armed only with his own physical and moral resources was able to cause this land of Canaan to spring from the wasteland I am convinced that in spite of everything humanity is admirable. But when I compute the unfailing greatness of spirit and the tenacity of benevolence that it must have taken to achieve this result I am taken with an immense respect for that old and unlearned peasant who was able to complete a work worthy of God.

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.

However as we have all come this far I think under the circumstances the best solution is that we all just keep going. Lets keep this going in sight never an ending. Lets remember that this world wants fresh beginnings. I feel here in this country and throughout the world we are crying out for beginnings beginnings. We never want to hear this word endings.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If the Government is going to intrude upon the sacred ground of the First Amendment and tell its citizens that their exercise of protected speech could land them in jail the law imposing such a penalty must clearly define the prohibited speech not only for the potential offender but also for the potential enforcer.

I invented this rule for myself. I would sort out all the arguments and see which belonged to fear and which to creativeness and other things being equal I would make the decision which had the larger number of creative reasons on its side.

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.

A lifelong intimacy with animals has got me out of the common notion that they are automata with a slight infusion of intelligence in their composition. The mind in beast and bird as in man is the main thing.

Of all the spirits I believe the spirit of judging is the worst and it has had the rule of me I cannot tell you how dreadfully and how long.... This I find has more hindered my progress in love and gentleness than all things else. I never knew what the words Judge not that ye be not judged meant before; now they seem to me some of the most awful necessary and beautiful in the whole Word of God.

Where today are the Pequot? Where are the Narragansett the Mohican the Pokanoket and many other once powerful tribes of our people? They have vanished before the avarice and the oppression of the White Man as snow before a summer sun. Will we let ourselves be destroyed in our turn without a struggle give up our homes our country bequeathed to us by the Great Spirit the graves of our dead and everything that is dear to us? I know you will cry with me NEVER! NEVER!.

Have you done your homework? my mother would ask. Ill do it later. You will do it now young man. I don't want you winding up on the third shift at Flagg-Utica. Flagg-Utica was a local textile plant. Somehow I never could figure how failing to read three chapters in my geography book about the various sorts of vegetation to be found in a tropical rain forest had anything to do with facing a life as a mill hand. But with enough guilt and fear as catalysts you can read anything even geography books and Deuteronomy.

Getters generally don't get happiness; givers get it. You simply give to others a bit of yourself a thoughtful act a helpful idea a word of appreciation a lift over a rough spot a sense of understanding a timely suggestion. You take something out of your mind garnished in kindness out of your heart and put it into the other fellows mind and heart.

The brute animals have all the same sensations of pain as human beings and consequently endure as much pain when their body is hurt; but in their case the cruelty of torment is greater because they have no mind to bear them up against their sufferings and no hope to look forward to when enduring the last extreme pain....

Faith is not like a deed to a house in which one may live with full rights of possession. It is more like a kit of tools with which a man may build him a house. The tools will be worth just what he does with them. When he lays them down they will have no value until he takes them up again.

Whats really important in life? Sitting on a beach? Looking at television eight hours a day? I think we have to appreciate that were alive for only a limited period of time and well spend most of our lives working. That being the case I believe one of the most important priorities is to do whatever we do as well as we can. We should take pride in that.
