The world position which our country holds today is due to the wide vision of the statesmen who founded these United States and to the daring and indomitable persistence of the great industrial leaders together with the myriads of men who with faith in their leadership have cooperated to rear the marvelous industrial structure of which our country is justly so proud.

Rev. William Paley   Category: Unsorted

[They] like to pretend they live in a universe where there are no facts everything is a matter of opinion and all opinions are equally valid. And of course they do live in just such a universe. Unfortunately it exists entirely inside their own poorly-stocked minds.

Edward B. Butler   Category: Unsorted

The solution of problems is one of the lowest forms of mathematical research ... yet its educational value cannot be overestimated. It is the ladder by which the mind ascends into higher fields of original research and investigation. Many dormant minds have been aroused into activity through the mastery of a single problem.
Benjamin Franklin Finkel   Category: Unsorted

War will stop when we no longer praise it or give it any attention at all. Peace will come wherever it is sincerely invited. Love will overflow every sanctuary given it. Truth will grow where the fertilizer that nourishes it is also truth.

Anger even when it punishes the faults of delinquents ought not to precede reason as its mistress but attend as a handmaid at the back of reason to come to the front when bidden. For once it begins to take control of the mind it calls just what it does cruelly.
Saint Gregory I   Category: Unsorted

Oliver Goldsmith   Category: Unsorted

It takes more time and effort and delicacy to learn the silence of a people than to learn its sounds. Some people have a special gift for this. Perhaps this explains why some missionaries notwithstanding their efforts never come to speak properly to communicate delicately through silences. Although they speak with the accent of natives they remain forever thousands of miles away. The learning of the grammar of silence is an art much more difficult to learn than the grammar of sounds.
Ivan Illich   Category: Unsorted

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.
Alvin R. Dyer   Category: Unsorted

Beautiful and rich is an old friendship Grateful to the touch as ancient ivory Smooth as aged wine or sheen of tapestry Where light has lingered intimate and long.

Lynn Fontanne   Category: Unsorted

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.
Konrad Zuse   Category: Unsorted

Speech was given to the ordinary sort of men whereby to communicate their mind; but to wise men whereby to conceal it.
Robert South   Category: Unsorted

Here we find the moat of thieves. And just as a lizard with a quick slick slither Flicks across the highway from hedge to hedge Fleeter than a flash in the battering dog-day weather A fiery little monster livid in a rage Black as any peppercorn came and made a dart At the guts of the others and leaping to engage One of the pair it pierced him at the part Through which we first draw food; then loosed its grip And fell before him outstretched and apart.
Dante Alighieri   Category: Unsorted

I would say to bishops and to all men in authority we should have an interest in carrying on this work. We should labor to get the Spirit of God. It is our right our privilege and our duty to call upon the Lord that the vision of our mind may be opened so that we may see and understand the day and age in which we are living. It is your privilege and mine too to know the mind and will of the Lord concerning our duties and if we fail to seek after this we neglect to magnify our calling.

Scientists are people of very dissimilar temperaments doing different things in very different ways. Among scientists are collectors classifiers and compulsive tidiers-up; many are detectives by temperament and many are explorers; some are artists and others artisans.

Camille Paglia   Category: Unsorted

Whether we name divine presence synchronicity serendipity or graced moment matters little. What matters is the reality that our hearts have been understood. Nothing is as real as a healthy dose of magic which restores our spirits. It must be of the spirit if we are to save the flesh.

Malcolm Hein   Category: Unsorted

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.

Duncan Hines   Category: Unsorted

Within me is the potential to commit every evil act I see being committed by other men and unless I feel this potential I can at any moment be controlled by these same urges. I am free from these urges only if I recognize when I am feeling them and while feeling them and acknowledging them to be me choose not to follow them. Only in this way can I begin to regain the disowned parts of me. And only in this way can I know what it is I am criticizing in others.

Corazon C. Aquino   Category: Unsorted

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.

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.

For my part I believe that the vain glorious and the violent will not inherit the earth.... In pursuance of that faith my friends and I take the hands of the dying in our hands. And some of us travel to the Pentagon and others live in the Bowery and serve there and others speak unpopularly and plainly of the fate of the unborn and of convicted criminals. It is all one.

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.

Dr. Pace   Category: Unsorted

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.

The truth of the Self cannot come through one who has not realized that he is the Self. The intellect cannot reveal the Self beyond its duality of subject and object. They who see themselves in all and all in them help others through spiritual osmosis to realize the Self themselves. This awakening you have known comes not through logic and scholarship but from close association with a realized teacher.

Keplers principal goal was to explain the relationship between the existence of five planets (and their motions) and the five regular solids. It is customary to sneer at Kepler for this. It is instructive to compare this with the current attempts to explain the zoology of elementary particles in terms of irreducible representations of Lie groups.

Composer organist bass and countertenor singer. He was one of the greatest composers of the baroque period and one of the greatest of all English composers. Rreference to Purcell by James IIs Attorney-General Roger North succintly sums up his stature: the Orpheus Britannicus ... a greater musical genius England never had. He excelled in every branch of music to which he turned his hand. Purcell showed exceptional skill in the flexible setting of the English language and some of his solo song-scenas (like Mad Bess and The Blessed Virgins Expostulation) are remarkable example of dramatised declamation.

Will corporal punishment help restrain criminal behavior? Some well-intentioned experts say no. But one group that disagrees with these experts is the criminals themselves. Criminals know that punishment works and they use it every day all over America. Criminals demand absolute obedience and if corporal punishment doesnt work then they will use capital punishment for they know that the fear of death is the best deterrent for disobedience. Even the experts tell us that when being attacked by a criminal obey him because to resist may bring even more punishment. So does punishment work? It sure does. The problem is the wrong people are being punished.

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.

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.

The Humanist lives as if this world were all and enough. He is not otherworldly. He holds that the time spent on the contemplation of a possible afterlife is time wasted. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The more things are provided as rights the less the recipients have to work and the more others have to carry their load.

The antithesis between death and life is not so stark for the Christian as it is for the atheist. Life is a process of becoming and the moment of death is the transition from one life to another. Thus it is possible for a Christian to succumb to his own kind of death-wish to seek that extreme of other-worldliness to which the faith has always been liable especially in periods of stress and uncertainty. There may appear a marked preoccupation with death and a rejection of all temporal things. To say that this world is in a fallen state and that not too much value must be set upon it is very far from the Manichaean error of supposing it to be evil throughout. The Christian hope finds ambivalence in death: that which destroys also redeems.

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.

The soil open to the sky absorbs the pure rainfall while microorganisms convert tilled–under fodder into usable nutrients for the next crop of plants. The feasting earthworms tunnel along aerating the soil and preparing it to welcome the seeds and bare roots to come.

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.

Man was not made to rust out in idleness. A degree of exercise is as necessary for the preservation of health both of body and mind as his daily food. And what exercise is more fitting or more appropriate of one who is in the decline of life than that of superintending a well–ordered garden? What more enlivens the sinking mind? What is more conducive to a long life?

Family life is the source of the greatest human happiness. This happiness is the simplest and least costly kind and it cannot be purchased with money. But it can be increased if we do two things: if we recognize and uphold the essential values of family life and if we get and keep control of the process of social change so as to make it give us what is needed to make family life perform its essential functions.

Things in which we do not take joy are either a burden upon our minds to be got rid of at any cost; or they are useful and therefore in temporary and partial relation to us becoming burdensome when their utility is lost; or they are like wandering vagabonds loitering for a moment on the outskirts of our recognition and then passing on. A thing is only completely our own when it is a thing of joy to us.

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

We must learn to deal with people as they are not as we wish them to be. We must study the moral values which shape our thinking arouse our emotions and guide our conduct. We must get acquainted with our inner stream and find out whats going on in our heads and hearts. We must put an end to blind instinctive sensory thought and feeling. We must take time to be human.

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.

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....

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.

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.

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.

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.

Violence has ever achieved only destruction not construction; the kindling of passions not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord.

All true educators since the time of Socrates and Plato have agreed that the primary object of education is the attainment of inner harmony or to put it into more up-to-date language the integration of the personality. Without such an integration learning is no more than a collection of scraps and the accumulation of knowledge becomes a danger to mental health.

In the mathematics I can report no deficience except that it be that men do not sufficiently understand the excellent use of the pure mathematics in that they do remedy and cure many defects in the wit and faculties intellectual. For if the wit be too dull they sharpen it; if too wandering they fix it; if too inherent in the sense they abstract it. So that as tennis is a game of no use in itself but of great use in respect it maketh a quick eye and a body ready to put itself into all postures; so in the mathematics that use which is collateral and intervenient is no less worthy than that which is principal and intended.

There is no excellence anywhere without labor.

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.

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.

Some people are very earnest after the things of God and he who seeks finds and the more he seeks in the right direction the more he finds. He that is dilatory in searching after the things of God obtains but little; he that is diligent obtains much. All may receive it but they must obtain it in the way that God has appointed all receiving their measure according to their diligence and desire; but the spirit is the same.

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.

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.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self.

The night will soothe you like a tender mother folding you against her soft bosom and hiding you from the harm of the world. Though denied and rejected by men in the light of day the night will not reject you and in the still of her soft shadows you are free. After the day's struggle there is no freedom like unfettered thoughts no sound like the music of silence. And though behind you lies a road of dust and heat and discouragement and before you the challenge and uncertainty of untried paths in this brief hour you are master of all highways and the universe nestles in your soul.

Her brain is a speck of neural tissue a few millimeters long about a million times smaller than a human brain. With this almost microscopic clump of nerve cells she knows how to manage her new legs and wings to walk and to fly to find her way by some unknown means of navigation over thousands of miles from Massachusetts to Mexico. How are her behavior patterns programmed first into the genes of the caterpillar and then translated into the neural pathways of the butterfly? These are mysteries that biologists are far from understanding. The monarch is living proof that natures imagination is richer than our own.

Not so much in view of what it sees although this may appear fantastic enough but in respect of the fact that it can see at all. But in order to do so evidently it must first cut itself up into a least one state which sees and at least one other state which is seen.

(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 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.

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

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.

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.

We hear a good deal about business confidence which means confidence of business in itself in its government and in its capacity for expansion. But confidence is only another way of saying that people believe each other keep their promises pay their debts and regard their duty to society. As long as business observes these rules it will have the confidence of the community and it will be safe from all of the irresponsible attacks of its enemies.

Set about doing good to somebody. Put on your hat and go and visit the sick and poor of your neighborhood; inquire into their circumstances and minister to their wants. Seek out the desolate and afflicted and oppressed and tell them of the consolations of religion. I have often tried this method and have always found it the best medicine for a heavy heart.

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

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 was said that the brutes cannot reason. Only persons who do not themselves reason about the subject with the facts before them can any longer occupy such a position. The evidence of reasoning power is overwhelming for the upper rank of animals and yearly the downward limits are being extended the more the inferior tribes are studied.

Early on in the space race NASA spent much time and effort seeking a metal robust enough to withstand the heat of reentry and protect the astronauts. The endeavor failed. At some point a clever person changed the problem. The real problem was to protect the astronauts and perhaps this could be done without a material that could withstand reentry. 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.

Neither man nor woman can be worth anything until they have discovered that they are fools. wThis is the first step towards becoming either estimable or agreeable; and until it be taken there is no hope. wThe sooner the discovery is made the better as there is more time and power for taking advantage of it. Sometimes the great truth is found out too late to apply to it any effectual remedy.w Sometimes it is never found at all; and these form the desperate and inveterate causes of folly self-conceit and impertinence.

There must appear a spiritual and moral leadership rising above economic and political situations. Governments in both their domestic and foreign policies appeal for popular support by promises of material gain. We cannot make peace by mere appeal to greed. We must give the peoples of the world something to live for as well as something to live on.

The path of duty is the only path of safety. It is the only path wherein we can walk and have the assurance of Gods continued blessings of his continued deliverances. Any other course does not carry with it this assurance. Any other path leads to darkness to contention to evils of many kinds; for it leads away from the truth and the right. 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.

The founders of this nation understood that private morality is the fount from whence sound public policy springs. Replying to Washingtons first inaugural address the Senate stated: We feel sir the force and acknowledge the justness of the observation that the foundation of our national policy should be lain in private morality. If individuals be not influenced by moral principles it is in vain to look for public virtue.
