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

This energy this life force creates the whole world.

The individual who cultivates grievances and who is perpetually exacting explanations of his assumed wrongs can only be ignored and left to the education of time and of development....

In working well if travail you sustain Into the wind shall lightly pass the pain; But of the deed the glory shall remain And cause your name with worthy wights to reign.

The prohibition is general. No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people.

But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power either should attempt it this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.

WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO? Will you follow another's pathway Or will you make your own? Will you build your house on another's sand Or on your own firm stone? Will you be a mold of many Or dare to be yourself? Are you going to be remembered Or forgotten on the shelf? Will you let another rule you From a false and fancied throne? Or will you wear the crown yourself? The decision's all your own. You can be just one in many Or you can stand alone But this one thing remember: Your life is all your own

The happiest sweetest tenderest homes are not those where there has been no sorrow but those which have been overshadowed with grief and where Christs comfort was accepted. The very memory of the sorrow is a gentle benediction that broods ever over the household like the silence that comes after prayer. There is a blessing sent from God in every burden of sorrow.
James Russell Miller   Category: Unsorted

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.
David M. Paton   Category: Unsorted

Better guide the young than reclaim them when old For the voice of true wisdom is calling To rescue the fallen is good but tis best To prevent other people from falling Better close up the source of temptation and crime Than deliver from dungeon or gallery Better put a strong fence round the top of the cliff Than an ambulance down in the valley.

The first gatherings of the garden in May of salads radishes and herbs made me feel like a mother about her baby - how could anything so beautiful be mine.

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

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

There is no excellence anywhere without labor. We would think a man foolish indeed who would say l am willing that my business should prosper or that my farm should yield plentifully but Ill not stir a peg. But he is no more foolish than the man who says I am willing that God should bless me abundantly but I shall not do anything toward that end myself. We must consistently rely upon the help of the Lord but we will not make any progress or meet with any success unless we put forth an earnest effort.
Charles W. Nibley   Category: Unsorted

We are lonely even in the milling crowds of a city where we may only be recognized as customers for goods and services. Our personalities are weakened and starved by the impersonal life in a city. That is why there is so much wreckage in a city. Our families answer this need to some degree but not completely. And so in the last analysis it is only God who can give us the comfort of utter understanding.

Cecil B. de Mille   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.

In the space age the most inportant space is between the ears.
Thomas J. Barlow   Category: Unsorted

Individualism as a definition of holding to personal ideals is classed as obstinacy and anti-social. Inevitably we run point blank into the evils of compromise. When compromise enters our moral fibre it spreads like a cancerous growth. We think we plan adequate safeguards around areas in which we contemplate yielding our standards but once we lower the fence and break our strong will to do right come what may we expose ourselves to forces that spread beyond control. Compromise always starts on some rather insignificant principle. The dangers of yielding seem negligible and we usually risk those things first where observation and detection by others is difficult. We thus seek to avoid censure and discipline. In a short time we find ourselves trading our principles for false values and doing it in the black market of human relationships....

There the President ... brought up entirely the relations with the Japanese. He brought up the event that we were likely to be attacked perhaps (as soon as) next Monday for the Japanese are notorious for making an attack without warning and the question was what we would do. The question was how we should maneuver them into the position of firing the first shot without allowing too much danger to ourselves. It was a difficult proposition.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Without such an integration learning is no more than a collection of scraps and the accumulation of knowledge becomes a danger to mental health.

If every person has the right to defend even by force his person his liberty and his property then it follows that a group of men have the right to organize and support a common force to protect these rights constantly.

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.

Organismic awareness is what we – on the Ego Level – ordinarily but clumsily refer to as seeing touching tasting smelling and hearing. But in its very purest form this sensual awareness is non–symbolic non–conceptual momentary consciousness. Organismic awareness is awareness of the Present only you cant taste the past smell the past see the past touch the past or hear the past. Neither can you taste smell see touch or hear the future. In other words organismic consciousness is properly timeless and being timeless it is essentially spaceless. Just as organismic awareness knows no past or future it knows no inside or outside no self or other. Thus pure organismic consciousness participates fully in the non–dual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

Not now but in the coming years It may be in the better land Well read the meaning of our tears And then ah then well understand. Well catch the broken threads again And finish what we here began; Heaven will the mysteries explain And then ah then well understand. 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.

The war of words is done; The red-lipped cannon speak; The battle has begun. The web your speeches spun Tears and blood shall streak; The war of words is done. Smoke enshrouds the sun; Earth staggers at the shriek Of battle new begun. Poltroons and braggarts run: Woe to the poor the meek! The war of words is done. And hope not now to shun The doom that dogs the weak Thunders every gun; Victory must be won. When the red-lipped cannon speak The war of words is done The slaughter has begun.

We have a system which though far from perfect is strong with idealism. It gives elbow room for men of all races and all beliefs. It is vital and dynamic. And it works. We have the means of shaping the world in our pattern. If we do freedom will be assured for all men. The decision is in the hands of this generation. It is a challenge to our political competence. For Western civilization it is the greatest challenge of all time.

I would wish that people come to realize that we create our own realities and all our emotions and thoughts are simply choices. If we were more accountable as human beings we would experience far far less suffering and indifference in the world.

In the time that I have been acquainted with this region I have become increasingly aware of it as a testament of water the origin and guide of its contours and gradients and of all the lives - the plants and small creatures and the culture - that evolved here.

I agree that the fear of American cultural imperialism is shared by many people and I agree with your point about the invasive nature of television culture. But I wouldnt draw the next inference: that this is negative and therefore it must be stopped. I feel that one should address this influence in a way that takes away the negative edge through a positive counter-response. This way you reinforce and reaffirm your conviction in the inner values. You harness those beliefs and develop them with a greater degree of self-awareness. Thats the kind of response people should have instead of rejecting technology.

Readers should be very attentive to and critical of historians and they in turn should be constantly on their guard.

When a teacher of the future comes to point out to the youth of America how the highest rewards of intellect and devotion can be gained he may say to them not by subtlety and intrigue; not by wire pulling and demagoguery; not by the arts of popularity; not by skill and shiftiness in following expediency; but by being firm in devotion to the principles of manhood and the application of morals and the courage of righteousness in the public life of our country; by being a man without guile and without fear without selfishness and with devotion to duty devotion to his country.

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. Our drift today toward complete totalitarian bureaucracy is one that threatens immediately the very freedoms for which our own boys are dying.

Free inquiry if restrained within due bounds and applied to proper subjects is a most important privilege of the human mind; and if well conducted is one of the greatest friends to truth.

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.

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 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. The astronomer goes back untold million of years and ends in gas and emptiness and then the mathematician sweeps the whole cosmos into unreality and leaves one with mind as the only thing of which we have any immediate apprehension. Cogito ergo sum ergo omnia esse videntur. All this bother and we are no further than Descartes. Have you noticed that the astronomers and mathematicians are much the most cheerful people of the lot? I suppose that perpetually contemplating things on so vast a scale makes them feel either that it doesnt matter a hoot anyway or that anything so large and elaborate must have some sense in it somewhere.

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.

One can get lost in their garden and the rest of the world ceases to exist if only for a while. Anger disipates with every shovel of dirt moved pleasure is found in the simplest forms excitement is felt as each tiny plant matures and then triumph with the harvest of the first tomato of the season. The love of gardening never goes away. Even if someone is unable to garden themselves they enjoy the gardens of others.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Obviously where art has it over life is in the matter of editing. Life can be seen to suffer from a drastic lack of editing. It stops too quick or else it goes on too long. 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.

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.

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.

And so the guilty man who fortuitously touched on and revealed this aspect of living things was taken to the place where he began and there is for ever beaten by the waves.

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.

In many cases mathematics is an escape from reality. The mathematician finds his own monastic niche and happiness in pursuits that are disconnected from external affairs. Some practice it as if using a drug. Chess sometimes plays a similar role. In their unhappiness over the events of this world some immerse themselves in a kind of self-sufficiency in mathematics. (Some have engaged in it for this reason alone.)

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.

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.

...[E.H.] Moore ws presenting a paper on a highly technical topic to a large gathering of faculty and graduate students from all parts of the country. When half way through he discovered what seemed to be an error (though probably no one else in the room observed it). He stopped and re-examined the doubtful step for several minutes and then convinced of the error he abruptly dismissed the meeting -- to the astonishment of most of the audience. 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.

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. God has given unto all his children this Spirit.... Everywhere throughout the earth where man dwells this Spirit rests upon him. It comes from God. It pleads with man to do right. It pleads with man to resist the blandishments of Satan.

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

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 oxygen and hydrogen find one another their joining produces fiery passion. Out of this fire water is born. Quaint Victorian chemistry gives us an image of one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms in a fixed molecule that bounces around from place to place. The reality of water is not so orderly. The hydrogen atoms are not owned by any particular oxygen atom. Water is a substance very much in love with itself and the atoms connect in webs and clusters where oxygen shares around the hydrogen atoms freely a fluid situation indeed.

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.

The shop the barn the scullery and the smithy become temples when men and women do all to the glory of God! The divine service is not a thing of a few hours and a few places but all life becomes holiness unto the Lord and every place and thing as consecrated as the tabernacle and its golden candlestick.

An obvious fact about negative feelings is often overlooked. They are caused by us not by exterior happenings. An outside event presents the challenge but we react to it. So we must attend to the way we take things not to the things themselves.
