Unsorted quotes (6647)

For all their wealth of content for all the sum of history and social institution invested in them music mathematics and chess are resplendently useless (applied mathematics is a higher plumbing a kind of music for the police band).

If I Really Cared ... Who you are would be more important to me than who I am. Where you hurt would be more important than that Im well. What you feel would be more important than what I know. Id look you in the eyes when you talk to me; Id think about what youre saying rather than what Im going to say next Id hear your feelings as well as your words. Id listen without defending. Id hear without deciding whether you are right or wrong. Id ask you why and how not just when and where. Id laugh with you but not at you. Id talk with you and not to you and Id know when its time to do neither. I wouldnt climb over your walls. Id wait until you let me in the gate. I wouldnt unlock your secrets; The performances would end. If I really cared about you Id be myself with you And give you the right to be the same.

'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.

I do not want to presuppose anything as known. I see in my explanation in section 1 the definition of the concepts point straight line and plane if one adds to these all the axioms of groups i-v as characteristics. If one is looking for other definitions of point perhaps by means of paraphrase in terms of extensionless etc. then of course I would most decidedly have to oppose such an enterprise. One is then looking for something that can never be found for there is nothing there and everything gets lost becomes confused and vague and degenerates into a game of hide and seek.

A desire for bigness has hurt many folks. Putting oneself in the limelight at the expense of others is a wrong idea of greatness.

A life of this kind of service will forever remain the measure of ones true greatness.

Whenever I hear a man or women express hatred for any race I wonder just what it is in themselves they hate so much.

I believe with all my heart that civilization has produced nothing finer than a man or woman who thinks and practices true tolerance. Some one has said that most of us don't think we just occasionally rearrange our prejudices. And I suspect that even today with all the progress we have made in liberal thought the quality of true tolerance is as rare as the quality of mercy. That men of all creeds have fundamental common objectives is a fact one must learn by the process of education. How to work jointly toward these objectives must be learned by experience.

Suppose we loosely define a religion as any discipline whose foundations rest on an element of faith irrespective of any element of reason which may be present. Quantum mechanics for example would be a religion under this definition.

One of my favorite words is miscommunication. Its meaning has become so broad as to justify everything from the Middle East crisis to why a relative missed the wedding. In the business world vendors and clients alike use it to explain away huge mistakes and best of all without assigning responsibility to anyone. It is the verbal Get-Out-of-Jail card for the 90s.

My intimate contact with those great producing organizations and the men in them has given me great confidence in the machinery and the spirit now available for the building of a proper world. I do not mean that our industrial system is as good as it should be but if I am looking for intelligent and unselfish understanding of our problems and a generous approach to their solution I shall seek it among the makers and builders with far more confidence than among the talkers the manipulators and the vote seekers.

He does not promise do deliver you or me or any other individual from pain sorrow or economic disaster but He does give assurance the He will help us through and that there will be compensations. I will not leave you comfortless I will come to you. These are the words of Jesus.

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.)

By being willing to accept small losses they put themselves in position to make large gains.

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.

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.

There was too much noise. Sirens from police cars and ambulances. Shouts from the crowd on the street eighteen floors below. Traffic from other streets and all of the noises of San Francisco. Mostly though there were the voices. Whispering to him. Reminding him of the dark things he had done all of the little things he had forgotten all of the big things he had tried to forget. Mostly they reminded him of his biggest secret a betrayal of trust and friendship long ago. He squeezed his eyes shut as if that could somehow keep the voices away.

The Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking.... Americans are unhappy with their lot. 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.

Courtesy is really nothing more than a form of friendliness. It is amazing what a warming influence it can have on an otherwise dreary world.

When you follow a star you know you will never reach that star; rather it will guide you to where you want to go. Its a reference point not an end in itself even though you seem to be following it. So it is with the world. It will only ever lead you back to yourself. The end of all your exploring will be to cease from exploration and know the place for the first time.

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.

It should not be the signal for a let-down but rather a reminder that the standards which won recognition can never again be lowered. From him who gives much - much is forever after expected.

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.

When a business firm attempts to mold its whole policy to meet the prices of its competitor that business is entering a labyrinth the center of which is the chamber of despair. Highest quality never can be given nor obtained at the lowest prices. If a price must be sacrificed quality must be sacrificed. If quality is sacrificed society is not truly served.

He has loved us without being loved.... We are bound to Him and not He to us because before He was loved He loved us.... There it is then: we cannot ... love Him with this first love. Yet I say that God demands of us that as He has loved us with out any second thoughts so He should be loved by us. In what way can we do this then? ... 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. For His charity extends over just men and sinners.

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.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

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.

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.

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.

Over the last decade or so wars have been proclaimed in turn on teen pregnancy dropping out drugs and most recently violence. The trouble with such campaigns though is that they come too late after the targeted problem has reached epidemic proportions and taken firm root in the lives of the young. They are crisis intervention the equivalent of solving a problem by sending an ambulance to the rescue rather than giving an inoculation that would ward off the disease in the first place. Instead of more such wars what we need is to follow the logic of prevention offering our children the skills for facing life that will increase their chances of avoiding any and all of these fates.

It has been too much the custom to regard the earliest Christian books as written in a specially Christian form of speech standing apart and distinguishable from the common language of the eastern Roman provinces. Had that been the case it is not too bold to say that the new religion could not have conquered the Empire. It was because Christianity appealed direct to the people addressed them in their own language and made itself comprehensible to them on their own plane of thought that it met the needs and filled the heart of the Roman world.

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.

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.

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.

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

With due deference I expressed my judgement that any plans for our military defense should include an assumption that the Japanese might make the element of surprise a central point in their strategy and also might attack at various points simultaneously with a view to demoralizing efforts of defense and of coordination.

And do not marvel at my calling west the regions where the spices grow although they are commonly called east; because whoever sails westward will always find those lands in the west while one who goes overland to the east will always find the same lands in the east.

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.

That historians should give their own country a break I grant you; but not so as to state things contrary to fact. For there are plenty of mistakes made by writers out of ignorance and which any man finds it difficult to avoid. But if we knowingly write what is false whether for the sake of our country or our friends or just to be pleasant what difference is there between us and hack-writers? Readers should be very attentive to and critical of historians and they in turn should be constantly on their guard.

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 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.

We must drop the idea that change comes slowly. It does ordinarily in part because we think it does.

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.

The biologist can push it back to the original protist and the chemist can push it back to the crystal but none of them touch the real question of why or how the thing began at all.

Cogito ergo sum ergo omnia esse videntur. All this bother and we are no further than Descartes. Have you noticed that the astronomers and mathematicians are much the most cheerful people of the lot?

(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.

The quest for this unwearied peace is constant and universal. Probe deeply into the teaching of Buddha Maimonides or a Kempis and you will discover that they base their diverse doctrines on the foundation of a large spiritual serenity.

Grown men do not pray for vain trifles. When they lift up their hearts and voices in the valley of tears they ask for strength and courage and understanding.

True it is that many find some of the speech on the Internet to be offensive and amid the din of cyberspace many hear discordant voices that they regard as indecent. The absence of governmental regulation of Internet content has unquestionably produced a kind of chaos but as one of plaintiffs' experts put it with such resonance at the hearing: What achieved success was the very chaos that the Internet is. The strength of the Internet is that chaos. Just as the strength of the Internet is chaos so the strength of our liberty depends upon the chaos and cacophony of the unfettered speech the First Amendment protects. For these reasons I without hesitation hold that the [Communications Decency Act] is unconstitutional on its face.

He fears no hell and seeks no heaven save that which he and others created on earth. He willingly accepts the world that exists on this side of the grave as the place for moral struggle and creative living. He seeks the life abundant for his neighbour as for himself. He is content to live one world at a time and let the next life if such there may be take care of itself. He need not deny immortality; he simply is not interested. His interests are here.

But if we continue in the path that is marked out for us by divine instruction trusting implicitly in God then shall we be delivered from all impending evils that are sought to be brought upon us no matter what they may be; and the nearer we live to God the greater will be the blessings showered upon us and seeming evils will be changed to blessings of untold worth.

After a few hours the finger began to swell. Later on the swelling went into his arm and finally the whole body was affected and in a few days the officer was dead.

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.

There was always plenty to do in the garden weeds to be yanked up between the flower beds holes to be dug for tulip bulbs. Williams blended rich compost into the soil turning it over; or prepared to plant the sapling bought back from a weekend trip to James Laughlins country place in Norfork Connecticut or Flossies parents farm near Harriman New York. Rooting around in the dark earth was great exercise. Williams carefully removed his white shirt and tie and when he had worked long enough so that sweat began to show through his undershirt it never failed his mind was wonderfully cleared. He washed up had a bite to eat and was ready for the next visitor.

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.

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. For truly the Master said Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me (Matt. 25:40). The blessings are tenfold when we do those good kindly acts of Christian service when it is inopportune or not convenient.

The Savior desires to save us from our inadequacies as well as our sins. Inadequacy is not the same as being sinful we have far more control over the choice to sin than we may have over our innate capacity....

Still after all we can do the Atonement can fill that which is empty straighten our bent parts and make strong that which is weak.
