Oscar Levant   Category: Unsorted

I think the main culprit is modernity itself. Modernity and beauty simply don't mix. Pragmatism and an industrial-sized busyness denigrate everything that cant squeeze out of a calculator. And the first thing to die under such circumstances is a passion for beauty. For those trying desperately to jump over moving hurdles pursuing beauty is just foolishness.... We just don't have the time for poetry; beauty isnt useful we say until were in our eighties when many finally reflect and realize that beauty was truly essential to a good life that has now slipped by.

I think the rapidly growing tendency to regard animals as born for nothing except slavery to so-called humanity is absolutely disgusting.
Sir Victor Gollancz   Category: Unsorted

Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth splendour and nobility cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility.

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.

And no one came to say that your life belongs to you and that the good is to live it.

Can any good come out of Nazareth? This is always the question of the wiseacres and the knowing ones. But the good the new comes from exactly that quarter whence it is not looked for and is always different from what was expected. Everything new is received with contemptfor it begins in obscurity.

The mathematic then is an art. As such it has its styles and style periods. It is not as the layman and the philosopher (who is in this matter a layman too) imagine substantially unalterable but subject like every art to unnoticed changes form epoch to epoch. The development of the great arts ought never to be treated without an (assuredly not unprofitable) side-glance at contemporary mathematics.

False is the idea of utility that sacrifices a thousand real advantages for one imaginary or trifling inconvenience; that would take fire from men because it burns and water because one may drown in it... The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

Mother and small son walking along a sun-splashed street; Their shadows hand in hand dance swiftly at their feet. Her shadow straight and tall; his shadow small and round; They laugh at their likenesses traced there upon the ground. The summer suns pass quickly. They walk another day. Now shadows move sedately down the familiar way. His shadow now the tall one her shadow slight and bent And as she walks she wonders where his little shadow went.

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

Get the confidence of the public and you will have no difficulty in getting their patronage. Inspire your whole force with the right spirit of service; encourage every sign of the true spirit.

Give them all that can be given fairly on the principle that to him that giveth shall be given. Remember always that the recollection of quality remains long after the price is forgotten. Then your business will prosper by a natural process.

What we call yugen lies within the mind and cannot be expressed in words. Its quality may be suggested by the sight of a gauzy cloud veiling the moon or by the autumnal mists swathing the scarlet leaves on a mountainside. If one is asked where yugen can be found in these sights one cannot say; a man who cannot understand this truth is quite likely to prefer the sight of the moon shining brightly in a cloudless sky. It is quite impossible to explain wherein lies the interest or wonder of yugen.

The field is a halfway house halfway between the detail of those intimately known places and the ignorance of a landscape view.... The essence of a field is that the cultural accommodates the natural there. The human being makes room for and makes use of those organisms that are not him. In that way the field is a poem to symbiosis and a human contract with the natural.

Winter Song The browns the olives and the yellows died And were swept up to heaven; where they glowed Each dawn and set of sun till Christmastide And when the land lay pale for them pale-snowed Fell back and down the snow-drifts flamed and flowed.

Some time ago a member of my family sent to me a critical article written by Mr. Edmund Fuller in a publication called Saturday Review. The criticism of the writer is directed against the effort made to satisfy what the author designates as general religious hunger with books articles and public appearances of nationally advertised individuals carrying on a propaganda for what is characterized as (these are quotes) the good life peace of mind positive thinking and successful or confident living. What the author objects to most strenuously is not so much that propaganda should be issued for the optimism of peace of mind and positive thinking but that this psychological optimism should be held out in any form as an interpretation of or a substitute for the real Christian religion.

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 is an experiment worth trying to be alone and to be quiet for a brief period every day. Under city conditions it may be difficult to carry out but most of us could do it if we tried. At any rate we should moderate the pace at which we are living. If we remain at high gear at top pressure we are bound to suffer from fatigue and strain.

The information revolution has changed people's perception of wealth. We originally said that land was wealth. Then we thought it was industrial production. Now we realize it's intellectual capital. The market is showing us that intellectual capital is far more important that money. This is a major change in the way the world works. the same thing that happened to the farmers during the Industrial Revolution is now happening to people in industry as we move into the information age.

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

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.

Romanticism may not inaccurately be described as a conviction that the world is an Englischer Garten on a grand scale. The God of the seventeenth century like its gardeners always geometrized; the God of Romanticism was one in whose universe things grew wild and without trimming and in all the rich diversity of their natural shapes. The preference for irregularity the aversion from that which is wholly intellectualized ... which were eventually to invade the intellectual life of Europe at all points made their first modern appearance on a grand scale in the eighteenth century in the form of the new fashion in pleasure gardens.

It is only when scientists remove God from creation that the Christian is faced with an irreconcilable situation.

The world was young the mountains green No stain yet on the Moon was seen No words were laid on stream or stone When Durin woke and walked alone. He named the nameless hills and dells; He drank from yet untasted wells; He stooped and looked in Mirrormere And saw a crown of stars appear; As gems upon a silver thread; Above the shadow of his head. The world is grey the mountains old The forge's fire is ashen-cold; No harp is wrung no hammer falls: The darkness dwells in Durin's halls; The shadow lies upon his tomb In Moria in Khazad-dûm. But still the sunken stars appear In dark and windless Mirrormere; There lies his crown in water deep Till Durin wakes again from his sleep.

Topocosm means the world order of a particular place. The topocosm is the entire complex of any given locality conceived as a living organism not just the human community but the total community – the plants animals and soils of the place. The topocosm is not only the actual and present living community but also that continuous entity of which the present community is but the current manifestation.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Two years later this eighteenth-century French mathematician and astronomer hinted with admirable prescience at the role of genetics in evolution: The elementary particles which form the embryo are each drawn from the corresponding structure in the parent and conserve a sort of remembrance of their previous form so that in the offspring they will reflect and reproduce a resemblance to the parents ... We can thus readily explain how new species are formed... by supposing that the elementary particles may not always retain the order which they present in the parents but may fortuitously produce differences which multiplying and accumulating have resulted in the infinite variety of species which we see at the present time.

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.

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.

Go very light on the vices such as carrying on in society. The social ramble ain't restful. Avoid running at all times. Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you.

What time the pea puts on the bloom Thou flist thy vocal vale An annual guest in other lands Another Spring to hail.

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 his enthusiasm the evangelist often finds it difficult seriously to imagine that anyone could be called not to be an evangelist. The man of vision and imagination finds it difficult to see the value of those who do no more than plod on faithfully along a well-tried road. The man whose concern is in personal dealing with people and leading them to understand God better finds it difficult to be patient with the theologian or the Christian philosopher whose work is in the quiet of a book-lined study. Yet the truth is that the wholeness which God is working to achieve is never complete in an individual but through individuals living together as one body each supplying the deficiencies of the others.

An executive cannot gradually dismiss details. Business is made up of details and I notice that the chief executive who dismisses them is quite likely to dismiss his business. Success is the sum of detail. It might perhaps be pleasing to imagine oneself beyond detail and engaged only in great things but as I have often observed if one attends only to great things and lets the little things pass the great things become little; that is the business shrinks. It is not possible for an executive to hold himself aloof from anything. No business no matter what its size can be called safe until it has been forced to learn economy and rigidly to measure values of men and materials.

I 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.

Well know why clouds instead of sun Were over many a cherished plan Why song has ceased when scarce begun; Tis there sometime well understand. Why what we long for most of all Eludes so oft our eager hand Why hopes are crushed and castles fall Up there sometime well understand. God knows the way; he holds the key; He guides us with unerring hand; Sometimes with tearless eyes well see Yes there up there well understand.

The world of biology is full of miracles but nothing I have seen is as miraculous as the metamorphosis of the monarch caterpillar. 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.

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.

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

It was an evidence of intellectual courage as well as honesty and doubtless won for him the supreme admiration of every person in the group -- an admiration which was in no wise diminished but rather increased when at a later meeting he announced that after all he had been able to prove the step to be correct.

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.

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.

It is no strain of metaphor to say that the love of God and the wrath of God are the same thing described from opposite points of view. How we shall experience it depends upon the way we shall come up against it: God does not change; it is mans moral state that changes. The wrath of God is a figure of speech to denote Gods unchanging opposition to sin; it is His righteous love operating to destroy evil. It is not evil that will have the last word but good; not sorrow but joy; not hate but love.

'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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

There are many things which a person can do alone but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is above all things a state of union with Christ and of union of his followers with one another love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God. Resentment toward any human being cannot exist in the same heart with love to God. The personal relationship to Christ can only be realized when one has come to himself as a member of His Body the Christian fellowship.

The great truths of human life do not spring new born to each new generation. They derive from long experience. They are the gathered wisdom of the race. They are renewed in time of conflict and danger. If the times in which we are now living do not bring a fuller understanding of the great traditions of the Western European peoples and an almost Messianic desire to affirm them we are not worthy of that heritage.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

As stewards of God we must be truly appreciative of the things we receive. One has said that Ingratitude is a crime more despicable than revenge which is only returning evil for evil while ingratitude returns evil for good. You remember that of the ten lepers healed by Christ only one returned to give thanks. A beautiful legend tells the story of two angels that were sent forth throughout the land each given a basket one to gather up requests and the other thanksgivings. The angel of requests came back with her basket running over full. The angel of thanksgivings came back with her basket practically empty. So it is in life. It seems that all have requests to make but few of us think to return and give thanks.

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.

It should not be strange that the values cherished by all the three major religions are the same since they originate from a common source. For example Islam the predominant religion in the Middle East accepts as an integral part of its religious teachings both the Old and the New Testaments. If this commonality of moral traditions among the worlds major religions does not say something about the universality of religion it does say something about the universality of mankind....
