This stark contrast between the language we use in attending the religious realities of whatever faith and the realities themselves should not strike us as strange. Simple acknowledgment of the fallibility of our human forms and symbols should offer pre

Nikos Kazantzakis   Category: Unsorted

As evening approached I came down from the heights of the island and I liked then to go and sit on the shingle in some secluded spot by the lake; there the noise of the waves and the movement of the water taking hold of my senses and driving all other agitation from my soul would plunge me into delicious reverie in which night often stole upon me unawares.

Napoleons troops fought in bright fields where every helmet caught some gleams of glory; but the British soldier conquered under the cool shade of aristocracy.

The Rev. G. Avery Lee   Category: Unsorted

These various forms appear different in shape and size yet they are of a single essence.... The Sixth Patriarch called it essence of Mind... Here the Third Patriarch calls it timeless Self-essence. Bankei called it unborn Buddha-mind. They all refer to the same thing: Buddha-nature true self. This essence is not born and can never die. It exists eternally. Some call it energy; others call it spirit. But what is it? No one knows. Any concept we have of what it is can only be an analogy....

The Elf and the Dormouse UNDER a toadstool crept a wee Elf Out of the rain to shelter himself. Under the toadstool sound asleep Sat a big Dormouse all in a heap. Trembled the wee Elf frightened and yet Fearing to fly away lest he get wet. To the next sheltermaybe a mile! Sudden the wee Elf smiled a wee smile. Tugged till the toadstool toppled in two. Holding it over him gaily he flew. Soon he was safe home dry as could be. Soon woke the DormouseGood gracious me! Where is my toadstool? loud he lamented. And thats how umbrellas first were invented.

You are leaving port under sealed orders and in a troubled period. You cannot know whither you are going or what you are to do. But why not take the Pilot on board who knows the nature of your sealed orders from the outset and who will shape your entire voyage accordingly?

Let His almighty nail-pierced hands hold the wheel and you will be safe.

A short term view will lead to a partial and perhaps twisted view of the whole picture. A crucial element may be missing. We may not be running the entire race. A friend of mine described a colleague as great at running the ninety-five yard dash. That is a distinction I can do without. Lacking the last five yards makes the first ninety-five pointless. In fact serious runners thing of it as a 110 yard dash so that no one will best them in the last few yards. Youve got to think beyond the whole.

The mathematician may be compared to a designer of garments who is utterly oblivious of the creatures whom his garments may fit. To be sure his art originated in the necessity for clothing such creatures but this was long ago; to this day a shape will occasionally appear which will fit into the garment as if the garment had been made for it. Then there is no end of surprise and delight.

Its said that when we die the four elements – earth air fire and water – dissolve one by one each into the other and finally just dissolve into space.

This energy this life force creates the whole world.

Make no mistake; the American Revolution was not fought to obtain freedom but to preserve the liberties that Americans already had as colonials. Independence was no conscious goal secretly nurtured in cellar or jungle by bearded conspirators but a reluctant last resort to preserve life liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

It makes little difference what the trade business or branch of learning in mechanical labor or intellectual effort the educated man is always superior to the common laborer. One who is in the habit of applying his powers in the right way will carry system into any occupation and it will help him as much to handle a rope as to write a poem.

Dave Weinbaum   Category: Unsorted

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.

Ella Fitzgerald   Category: Unsorted

The young man who would succeed must identify his interests with those of his employer and exercise the same diligence in matters entrusted to him as he would in his own affairs. Back of all the gifts the candidate for success may possess must be a willing capacity for hard work.... Youth today is not considered a handicap in selecting men for responsible jobs as it was twenty years ago.... In almost any field today in which a youngster has an intelligent interest the road to the top is open as it never was before. But the one way to the top is by persistent intelligent hard work.

Ferenc Molnár   Category: Unsorted

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.

William Ashley (Billy) Sunday   Category: Unsorted

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

The Sermon on the Mount does not provide humanity with a complete guide to personal social and economic problems.

Rene Magritte   Category: Unsorted

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.
Russel M. Nelson   Category: Unsorted

Faith is like a pare of glasses I bring here and there with me The thrilling thing about them is the wondrous things I see. When life grows dark and dismal I don my magic glasses; the perspective soon grows fine. If I slip on this treasure I can toil with greater ease. Troubles and afflictions at length begin to please; The world become all rosy and as cheery as can be; I surely feel most grateful for the faith God gave to me. Perhaps you once had glasses but by faith no longer life Friend ask God for his pardon he is kind and will forgive; O cherish this dear treasure till you meet God up above then present faith as an offering with the gifts of hope and love.

Christmas Humphreys   Category: Unsorted

Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a dangerous experiment. In the last analysis the welfare of the workers depends upon their own initiative. Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy or social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toilers. Let social busybodies and professional public morals experts in their fads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under this pretense of social welfare.

Some people mistake weakness for tact. If they are silent when they ought to speak and so feign an agreement they do not feel they call it being tactful. Cowardice would be a much better name. Tact is an active quality t hat is not exercised by merely making a dash for cover. Be sure when you think you are being extremely tactful that you are not in reality running away from something you ought to face.

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.

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.

An IDEAL is a vision of the Ought-To-Be some good to be attained.... An ideal is a challenge to a better life.

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....

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.

Anyone who wants to understand me must first understand Russell Kansas. It is my home where my roots lie and a constant source of strength. My fathers view of the world as stewers versus doers registered early. From my neighbors I learned to feel deeply for God country and family. In Russell I came to understand there are things worth living for and if need be dying for. The Russell of my youth was not a place of wealth. Yet it was generous with the values that would shape my outlook and the compassion that would restore lifes richness after I had begun to doubt my future following the war. Ever since I have tried in my own way to give back some of what the town has given me. I have tried to defend and serve the America I learned to love in Russell.

Their tipis were built upon the earth and their altars were made of earth.

From one Soul of the Universe are all Souls derived.... Of these Souls there are many changes some into a more fortunate estate and some quite contrary.... Not all human souls but only the pious ones are divine. Once separated from the body and after the struggle to acquire piety which consists in knowing God and injuring none such a soul becomes all intelligence. The impious soul however punishes itself by seeking a human body to enter into for no other body can receive a human soul; it cannot enter the body of an animal devoid of reason. Divine law preserves the human soul from such infamy.... The soul passeth from form to form; and the mansions of her pilgrimage are manifold. Thou puttest off thy bodies as raiment; and as vesture dost thou fold them up. Thou art from old O Soul of Man; yea thou art from everlasting.

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.

We sometimes fear to bring our troubles to God because they must seem small to Him who sitteth on the circle of the earth. But if they are large enough to vex and endanger our welfare they are large enough to touch His heart of love. For love does not measure by a merchants scales not with a surveyors chain. It hath a delicacy... unknown in any handling of material substance.

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. .

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.

A professor was telling students about his colleagues class. Students in the other class had taken to tossing erasers at the clock. Each precise hit caused it to jump ahead one minute.

The professor never said a word about the incident. However he presented the class with a killer of a final exam. As the students labored to finish in the allotted time the professor amused himself by tossing erasers at the clock.

Biology occupies a position among the sciences at once marginal and central.

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.

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.

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.

The universe exists under a reign of eternal law surpassing the imperfect laws of human government. Such orderliness such domination by law imply intelligent planning and purpose. Nothing happens of itself. Nowhere in the age-old experience of man has continued order been found except as the product of intelligent direction.

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.

Hello everyone. I suppose you think that nothing much is happening at the moment. Well thats what I want to talk to you all about; endings. Now endings normally happen at the end. But as we all know endings are just beginnings. You know once these things really get started its jolly hard to stop them again. 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. I know we all want to sit down. I know you want to take it easy. Of course were looking for the good. Of course were looking for the fresh start.

A world in everlasting conflict between the new idea and the old allegiances new arts and new inventions against the old establishment.

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.

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.

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

Ghilean Prance director of the Botanical Gardens in Kew estimates that a complete list of plants in the Americas would occupy taxonomists for four centuries again working at historical rates.

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. Analyze the prayers of troubled overborne mankind of all creeds in every age--and their petitions come down to the irreducible common denominators of daily bread and inward peace. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

We ought indeed to expect to find the works of God in such things as the advance of knowledge. Knowledge of the physical universe is not to be thought of as irrelevant to Christian faith [simply] because it does not lead to saving knowledge of God. In so far as it is concerned with Gods creation physical science is a fitting study for Gods children. Moreover the advance of scientific knowledge does negatively correct and enlarge theological notions at the least the geologists and astrophysicists have helped us to rid ourselves of parochial notions of God and filled in some of the meaning of such phrases as almighty.

People tend to think Im always aggressive and strong. The truth is Ive always been wracked with self-loathing which leads me into terrible self paralysing depressions. When I go down to this place I feel so empty and overwhelmed I can barely move. But perversely I find these traits in a man unacceptable I cant stand someone who can out-depress me. You know that scene in Babe where the farmer clog-dances for the pig? Sometimes Im the sick pig and I need a farmer to cheer me up. And when things get bad my boyfriend does dance for me and it never fails to make me laugh. Hes a pretty snappy dancer.

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 non–symbolic non–conceptual 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 non–dual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

Even fairly good students when they have obtained the solution of the problem and written down neatly the argument shut their books and look for something else. Doing so they miss an important and instructive phase of the work.... A good teacher should understand and impress on his students the view that no problem whatever is completely exhausted. One of the first and foremost duties of the teacher is not to give his students the impression that mathematical problems have little connection with each other and no connection at all with anything else. We have a natural opportunity to investigate the connections of a problem when looking back at its solution.

As long as men and nations are aware of their divine origin that human beings are a reflection of the source of all life then it follows that it is the beholden duty of man to increase goodness beauty truth and peace in the world.

Another advantage of a mathematical statement is that it is so definite that it might be definitely wrong; and if it is found to be wrong there is a plenteous choice of amendments ready in the mathematicians stock of formulae. Some verbal statements have not this merit; they are so vague that they could hardly be wrong and are correspondingly useless.

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.

'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.

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.

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.

I now want to tell three stories about advances in twentieth-century physics. A curious fact emerges in these tales: time and again physicists have been guided by their sense of beauty not only in developing new theories but even in judging the validity of physical theories once they are developed......... Simplicity is part of what I mean by beauty but it is a simplicity of ideas not simplicity of a mechanical sort that can be measured by counting equations or symbols.

When Freedom from her mountain-height Unfurled her standard to the air She tore the azure robe of night And set the stars of glory there. She mingled with its gorgeous dyes The milky baldric of the skies And striped its pure celestial white With streakings of the morning light. Flag of the free hearts hope and home! By angel hands to valour given! Thy stars have lit the welkin dome And all thy hues were born in heaven. Forever float that standard sheet! Where breathes the foe but falls before us With Freedoms soil beneath our feet And Freedoms banner streaming oer us?

... I repeat it sir we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us! ... Sir we are not weak if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power.... Besides sir we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise friends to fight our battles for us. The battle sir is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant the active the brave ... ... Should I keep back my opinions at such a time through fear of giving offense I should consider myself as guilty of treason toward my country and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven which I revere above all earthly kings.

The world is full of rude awakenings And heaven-born castles shattered to the ground Yet still our human longing vainly clings To a belief in beauty through all wrongs.

What though in lonely grief I sigh For friends beloved no longer nigh Submissive still would I reply Thy will be done. If thou shouldst call me to resign What most I prizeit neer was mine I only yield Thee what was Thine; Thy will be done. If but my fainting heart be blest With thy sweet spirit for its guest My God to Thee I leave the rest; Thy will be done. Renew my will from day to day; Blend it with Thine and take away All that now makes it hard to say Thy will be done.

A vision of the future has been one of the sustaining marks of the American experience. Without that vision and without the men who devote themselves to realizing that vision there can be no true American way of life. We must beware of the thoughtless men who proclaim that a particular stage of our social development or any special set of conditions is the best that progress can offer. These men would immobilize us in the great stream of history. They would let its great challenges and chances pass us by ... forgetting that the American way of life is a way of acting not a state of inactivity.

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.

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.

The happiest sweetest tenderest homes are not those where there has been no sorrow but those which have been overshadowed with grief and where Christs comfort was accepted.

We sometimes speak of winning reputation as though that were the final goal. The truth is contrary to this. Reputation is a reward to be sure but it is really the beginning not the end of endeavor. 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.

In the pain the agony and the heroic endeavors of life we pass through a refiner's fire and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright intact and strong.

The secret of the world is this: the world is entirely circular and you will go round and round endlessly never finding what you want unless you have found what you really want inside yourself. 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.

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.

I would not like it if Germans did such a thing gladly. But the conscience was in no way impaired for they were soldiers who had to carry out every order unconditionally. I alone had responsibility before God and Hitler for everything that was happening and I was acting from a deep understanding of the necessity for this operation.

Neither you nor I nor anybody else knows what makes a mathematician tick. It is not a question of cleverness. I know many mathematicians who are far abler than I am but they have not been so lucky.

On December 12 1829 Paganini wrote his friend Germi: The variations Ive composed on the graceful Neapolitan ditty Oh Mamma Mama Cara outshine everything. I cant describe it! He was writing from Karlsruhe in the midst of his triumphal tour through Germany. That letter marks the earliest known mention of the variations that would become famous as The Carnival of Venice. At the time of his letter Paganini had already performed the piece in at least four concerts. From then on it would be one of his most popular compositions.

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.

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

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.

A perfect life is like that of a ship of war which has its own place in the fleet and can share in its strength and discipline but can also go forth alone in the solitude of the infinite sea. We ought to belong to society to have our place in it and yet be capable of a complete individual existence outside of it.

Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel movement through space provided the universal metaphor for change.
