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.

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.

Thomas Alva Edison   Category: Unsorted

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.

(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.

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.

The average beast of prey is a decent creature who merely kills for the sake of food or in a fight against an enemy.

One may with Hartshorne and other rationalist philosophers press rationality to the point of postulating certain necessary truths for which we have no conceivable alternatives. Or like Buddhist thinkers of many periodsand like Wieman tooone may find in the very conditions of contingency a religious significance that informs the whole quality of life as lived. Contingency embraced without any nostalgia or yearning for necessary truth yields a different quality of life than contingency assented to as necessarily so in the absence of any conceivable alternative.

Gardening is a luxury occupation: an ornament not a necessity of life.... Fortunate gardener who may preoccupy himself solely with beauty in these difficult and ugly days!

We hear a good deal about business confidence which means confidence of business in itself in its government and in its capacity for expansion.

We have forgotten in America that a democracy is the most difficult kind of government to maintain. It is the hardest kind of government under which to live. It is hardest to maintain because of the widespread political corruption to which it so easily lends itself.

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide; When other helpers fail and comforts flee Help of the helpless O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out lifes little day; Earths joys grow dim its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou Who changest not abide with me. 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.

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

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

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.

Over a considerable part of the world the unspeakable doctrine is being preached that the ideal of a democratic State is a snare and a delusion. A politician if he denies the existence of the essentials of democracy and denies it in such a way as to create class feeling is not working in the interest of democracy even though he protests to the high heavens that that is his objective.

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..

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 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.

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.

Any man will usually get from other men just what he is expecting of them. If he is looking for friendship he will likely receive it. If his attitude is that of indifference it will beget indifference. And if a man is looking for a fight he will in all likelihood be accommodated in that. Men can be stimulated to show off their good qualities to the leader who seems to think they have good qualities.

We should all be very careful when we say no to a suggested improvement or plan made by a subordinate. A no in most cases is final. We are usually more careful when we say yes because we know that our yes decisions will have to stand the test of performance or further approval. As a matter of fact we should be more careful with our noes for the very reason that they do not have to stand the test of performance or further approval.

In the late 1600s the finest instruments originated from three rural families whose workshops were side by side in the Italian village of Cremona.

Not to be outdone their next-door neighbors the family Guarnerius hung a bolder sign proclaiming: The Best Violins In All The World! At the end of the street was the workshop of Anton Stradivarius and on its front door was a simple notice which read: The best violins on the block.

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 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.

If you have been in the habit of inviting negative thoughts, jealousy, envy, resentment, and self-pity; think of these as intruders in your mind. The old Chinese saying fits here: You cannot stop the birds of the air from flying over your head, but you need not let them nest in your hair. Face and define your troubles. Gather your worries to God. Do all you can about the situation that is causing them. Don't contaminate your friends and loved ones with them.

Ere you lie down to sleep in the night sit still awhile and nurse again to life your gentler self. Forget the restless noisy spirit of the day and encourage to speech the soft voices within you that timidly whisper of the peace of the quiet night; and occasionally look out at the quiet stars. 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.

Marriage is a relationship based in no small part on virtues. The most basic of these is responsibility for marriage is an arrangement held together by mutual dependence and reciprocal obligations. But successful marriages are about more than fulfilling the conditions of a contract. In good marriages men and women seek to improve themselves for the sake of their loved one. They offer and draw moral strength by sharing compassion courage honesty self-discipline and a host of other virtues. Husband and wives complete themselves through each other and the whole of the union becomes stronger and more wonderful than the sum of the two parts.

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.

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.

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.

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.

There are six things that keep us going. •First the instinct to live which we apparently have no part in making or deciding about. •Second group consciousness and the desire that we have to win the approbation of our fellows within the group. •Third the various interests that we may find in life such as religion or art or some such other branch of esthetics. •Fourth in our climate the habit of work. •Fifth the sheer joy of physical life that we find in hours of well-earned recreation after hard work games fishing tramping the hills a good book before an open fire. •Sixth and most important the general feeling that we have that there is some abstract goodness or rightness in the world with which we may cooperate in making the world a fine place for a splendid race of men women and children to live in.

To live with beauty is not only to give oneself a joy it is o have the power of beauty at ones call. A mans life would be in a deep and manly way purified and sweetened if each day he could gain a little of the inspiration that poets fuse into their verse and have it share his visions for that day. The wise poet was right who advised us daily to see a beautiful picture daily to read a beautiful poem. He was right he was practical.

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.

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 Myth of the Angry White Male What has sprung up is a strange kind of thinking.... Americans are unhappy with their lot. They are feeling insecure layoffs and corporate downsizing have made their future uncertain. Stirred up by talk radio the theory goes large numbers of formerly sensible people have embraced hate and extremism. Most of these according to the media are white guys. A Washington Post/ABC pre-election poll asked voters if they were angry about the way the federal government works. Four out of five white males said no. 62 percent of white men voted for Republican House candidates (38 percent for Democrats in 1994 a ten-point increase from the 1990 midterm elections). But was this special to their gender? In 1994 white women voted for Republican House candidates by a 55 to 45 percent majority. Significantly there isnt single article decrying angry white females.

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.

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.

There are many examples of old incorrect theories that stubbornly persisted sustained only by the prestige of foolish but well-connected scientists.... Many of these theories have been killed off only when some decisive experiment exposed their incorrectness. .. Thus the yeoman work in any science and especially physics is done by the experimentalist who must keep the theoreticians honest.

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.

Interest in global circumnavigation is older than Christianity itself.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

We sometimes call it conscience; we call it by one name and we call it by another; but it is the Spirit of God that every man and woman possesses that is born on the earth.

It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

Lovers whose priests all poets are Think every mistress when she dies Is changed at least into a star: And who dares doubt the poet wise? Philosopher. But ask not bodies doomd to die To what abode they go; Since Knowledge is but Sorrows spy It is not safe to know.

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. Then trust in God through all thy days; Fear not for he cloth hold thy hand; Though dark thy way still sing and praise Sometime sometime well understand.

Each person has an ideal a hope a dream of some sort which represents his soul. In the long light of eternity this seed of the future is all that matters! We must find this seed no matter how small it is; we must give to it the warmth of love the light of understanding and the water of encouragement. 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.

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.

Sometimes were not aware of things The wind chimes in a tree that sings The first snowfall that casts a spell We plod along our tired way Not seeing beauty in each day Not recognizing God at all In everything both great and small. Then suddenly He wakes us from A long sleep of ignoring Him He nudges us with trials of pain So that we see His love again. Renewed once more we are aware Of his great power everywhere - Then all the world is new and bright - We see God in a different light!

We speak of being in tune of needing harmony and rhythm to feel complete and alive. We create our own realities with our words and our songs our eyes and our hands.

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.

That reverberation afterward is the very raising of consciousness; your minds been moved. You are at another level with your reflections.

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.

You are always picking up odd-shaped stones pebbles and fossils saying that you do this because it pleases you but I know better. Deep inside you there must be an awareness of the rock power of the spirits in them otherwise you would not pick them up and fondle them as you do.

Hands untrained in the use of tools destroy what they want to build. It takes skill to use tools to achieve the result desired whether its tearing down an old house or building a new one. Skepticism is a tool serving both purposes. But it must be used by a trained mind a mind capable of disciplined thinking.

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.

The time comes to every dog when it ceases to care for people merely for biscuits or bones or even for caresses and walks out of doors.

My Church and My Creed You ask me what is my religion? Now what if I say I have None? Youll be wrongly impressed And unduly distressed So wait I have only begun. My creed in the sense that you mean it Has no single symbol or sign. Big impressive or small There is good in them all So perhaps Your religion is mine. My doctrine is any that stands for The honor and virtue of men. For whatever we preach Were all striving to reach A mutual goal in the end. My church is the one that is nearest Wherever I happen to be. The place where men go Their devotion to show Is good and sufficient for me. What matters the Name on the mileposts That stand by the path you have trod? If the pathway leads UP Then at last you shall sup With the infinite army of God.

There is a theory of societal evolution that goes like this: Barbarians invent a new culture. A middle class emerges to manage and help perpetuate the culture. An aristocracy eventually develops out of the middle class and devotes their energies to making things comfortable for themselves. Finally a new set of barbarians smash everything apart and destroy the status quo so that the process must start all over again.

Let the Gospels speak. Of what I have learnt from these documents in the course of my long task I will say nothing now. Only this that they bear the seal of the Son of Man and God they are the Magna Charta of the human spirit.
