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

Phaedrus   Category: Unsorted

I am ashamed of the race of beings to which I belong. It is so cruel and bigoted so hypocritical so soulless and insane.

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

Franz Liszt   Category: Unsorted

It is remarkable how much mediocrity we live with surrounding ourselves with daily reminders that the average is acceptable. Our world suffers from terminal normality. Take a moment to assess all of the things around you that promote your being average. These are the things that keep you powerless to go beyond a limit you arbitrarily set for yourself. The first step to having what your really want is the removal of everything in your environment that represents mediocrity removing those things that are limiting. One way is to surround yourself with friends who ask more of you than you do.

In the bottom of an old pond lived some grubs who could not understand why none of their groups ever came back after crawling up the stem of the lilies to the top of the water. They promised each other that the next one who was called to make the upward climb would return and tell what happened to him. Soon one of them felt an urgent impulse to seek the surface; he rested himself on top of a lily pad and went through a glorious transformation which made him a dragonfly with beautiful wings. In vain he tried to keep him promise. Flying back and forth over the pond he peered down at his friends below. Then he realized that if they could ever see him they would not recognize such a radiant creature as one of their number. The fact that we cannot see our friends or communicate with them after the transformation which we call death. is no proof that they cease to exit.

Jean-Luc Picard   Category: Unsorted

If we understand that the Lord has given us a doctrine of wholehearted aggressive goodwill even toward unfriendly people we can save our world even at a time when it was never more difficult to believe in ourselves and our fellow-men.
Lee Vaughn Barker D.D.   Category: Unsorted

It is very true that I have said that I considered Napoleons presence in the field equal to forty thousand men in the balance. This is a very loose way of talking; but the idea is a very different one from that of his presence at a battle being equal to a reinforcement of forty thousand men.

Catherine Deneuve   Category: Unsorted

To know how other people behave takes intelligence but to know myself takes wisdom. To manage other people's lives takes strength but to manage my own life takes true power. If I am content with what I have I can live simply and enjoy both prosperity and free time. If my goals are clear I can achieve them without fuss. If I am at peace with myself I will not spend my life force in conflicts. If I have learned to let go I do not need to fear dying.

Brave old-flowers! Wall-flowers Gilly flowers Stocks! For even as the field-flowers from which a trifle a ray of beauty a drop of perfume divides them they have charming names the softest in the language; and each of them like tiny art-less ex-votos or like medals bestowed by the gratitude of men proudly bears three or four.

The mere lapse of years is not life. To eat to drink and sleep; to be exposed to darkness and the light; to pace around in the mill of habit and turn thought into an instrument of tradethis is not life.

It has taken biologists some 230 years to identify and describe three quarters of a million insects; if there are indeed at least thirty million as Erwin (Terry Erwin the Smithsonian Institute) estimates then working as they have in the past insect taxonomists have ten thousand years of employment ahead of them. Ghilean Prance director of the Botanical Gardens in Kew estimates that a complete list of plants in the Americas would occupy taxonomists for four centuries again working at historical rates.

The weakness of humanity is our blindness a cultural blind spot which some call ignorance in which a selfish and immature ego claims the world as ours and prevents us from seeing ourselves as a part of the world.

Bears: When you see a bear the spot where you see it becomes instantly different from every place else youve seen. Bears make you pay attention. They keep the mountains from turning into a blur.... A woods with a bear in it is real to a man walking through it in a way that a woods with no bear is not. Roscoe Black a man who survived a serious attack by a grizzly in Glacier National Park some years ago described the moment when the bear had him on the ground: He lay on me for a few seconds not doing anything.... I could feel his heart beating against my heart. The idea of that heart beating someplace just the other side of ours is what makes people read about bears and tell stories about bears and theorize about bears and argue about bears and dream about bears. Bears are one of the places in the world where big mysteries run close to the surface.

On Broadway it was still bright afternoon and the gassy air was almost motionless under the leaden spokes of sunlight and sawdust footprints lay about the doorways of butcher shops and fruit stores. And the great great crowd the inexhaustible current of millions of every race and kind pouring out pressing round of every age of every genius possessors of every human secret antique and future in every face the refinement of one particular motive or essence I labor I spend I strive I design I love I cling I uphold I give way I envy I long I scorn I die I hide I want. Faster much faster than any man could make the tally. The sidewalks were wider than any causeway; the street itself was immense and it quaked and gleamed and it seemed ... to throb at the last limit of endurance.

Books alone however well written or richly stored with facts cannot teach all that is necessary to be know about the subject; they can only act as a guide. We must examine the work of the past and note down errors of practice that have led to failures for rectification; so as to go forward with additional experience and a firm resolve to merit success in the new year.

... Unhesitatingly take whatever material is readily at hand and with enthusiasm and sincerity make something for a utilitarian purpose or just for the beauty of it.

Similarly a parent who sent his 17 year old college freshman information on birth control via e mail could be incarcerated even though neither he his child nor anyone in their home community found the material indecent or patently offensive if the college town's community thought otherwise. The breadth of this content based restriction of speech imposes an especially heavy burden on the Government to explain why a less restrictive provision would not be as effective as the CDA.

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

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.

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.

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.

Honesty is the best policy A dollar saved is a dollar earned Look before you leap A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush The laborer is worthy of his hire may be scoffed at by some intellectuals as trite copybook rules but nonetheless they sum up the elementary experience of the race in creating and consuming wealth.... People may change their minds as often as their coats and new sets of rules of conduct may be written every week but the fact remains that human nature has not changed and does not change that inherent human beliefs stay the same; the fundamental rules of human conduct continue to hold.

...[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.

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.

As to the position that the people always mean well that they always mean to say and do what they believe to be right and just it may be popular but it can not be true. The word people applies to all the individual inhabitants of a country.... That portion of them who individually mean well never was nor until the millennium will be considerable. Pure democracy like pure rum easily produces intoxication and with it a thousand pranks and fooleries. I do not expect mankind will before the millennium be what they ought to be and therefore in my opinion every political theory which does not regard them as being what they are will prove abortive. Yet I wish to see all unjust and unnecessary discriminations everywhere abolished and that the time may come when all our inhabitants of every color and discrimination shall be free and equal partakers of our political liberties.

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 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.

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?

It does not fight against me and I do not fight against it. We are working together. I often think of that when I am in the ‘swim' of life. The waves and currents and the tides hit us all at times and it is not always easy to say The water is friendly. It requires an act of faith a volitional act; it means work but most of all it requires a will to believe. the more we use this will the more it becomes a part of us and the more natural becomes its application.

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.

We saw the strong trees struggle and their plumes do down The poplar bend and whip back till it split to fall The elm tear up at the root and topple like a crown The pine crack at the base - we had to watch them all. The ash the lovely cedar. We had to watch them fall. They went so softly under the loud flails of air Before that fury they went down like feathers With all the hundred springs that flowered in their hair and all the years endured in all the weathers - To fall as if they were nothing as if they were feathers.

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

It is my strong contention that there is an infinitely higher thrill which like climbing a mountain or singing a beautiful song once experienced never stops begging to be repeated. That thrill has its beginnings in the private and personal discovery of revealed truth the universal laws by which God is governed and by which he governs. It has its development in private and personal decisions to test that law through acts of faith followed by effort. And the consummation of that thrill comes in watching and indeed experiencing body and soul the miraculous unfolding of events as they proceed by methods far beyond our feeble capacities to dream of.

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.

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 ancients had little doubt about the true shape of the earth: Its [the worlds] shape has the rounded appearance of a perfect sphere. This is shown first of all by the name of orb which is bestowed upon it by the general consent of mankind. ...Our eyesight also confirms this belief because the firmament presents the aspect of a concave hemisphere equidistant in every direction which would be impossible in the case of any other figure.

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

Salvation and justice are not to be found in revolution but in evolution through concord. Violence has ever achieved only destruction not construction; the kindling of passions not their pacification; the accumulation of hate and destruction not the reconciliation of the contending parties; and it has reduced men and parties to the difficult task of building slowly after sad experience on the ruins of discord.

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.

I believe that almost all important useful ideas are simple. Peter Whittle has recently put it nicely in an autobiographical essay. If a piece of work is heavy and complicated then it is wrong. ...

In fact simplicity is a virtue and when as here it is both original and useful it can represent a real advance in knowledge.

There is a marvelous story of a man who once stood before God his heart breaking from the pain and injustice in the world. Dear God. he cried out look at all the suffering the anguish and distress in your world. Why don't you send help? God respondedI did send help. I sent you.

In other words the propositions of philosophy are not factual but linguistic in character that is they do not describe the behaviour of physical or even mental objects; they express definitions or the formal consequences of definitions. Accordingly we may say that philosophy is a department of logic. For we will see that the characteristic mark of a purely logical enquiry is that it is concerned with the formal consequences of our definitions and not with questions of empirical fact.

The evidence of reasoning power is overwhelming for the upper rank of animals and yearly the downward limits are being extended the more the inferior tribes are studied.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If a nonnegative quantity was so small that it is smaller than any given one then it certainly could not be anything but zero. To those who ask what the infinitely small quantity in mathematics is we answer that it is actually zero. Hence there are not so many mysteries hidden in this concept as they are usually believed to be. These supposed mysteries have rendered the calculus of the infinitely small quite suspect to many people. Those doubts that remain we shall thoroughly remove in the following pages where we shall explain this calculus.

I like to combine human beings creatures and biomechanics. And I love to work with bones they are elemental and function and after all are part of human beings.

Power and passion well up like an artesian spring and creativity dances in celebration of life.

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.

When indignation takes possession of his mind and it is easily excited his disposition becomes malevolent. He hates with the bitterest contempt. But as soon as he has indulged those feelings he regains the humanity which he had lost from the immediate impulse of provocation and repents deeply. So that his mind is continually making the most sudden transitions from good to evil from evil to good. A state of such perpetual tumult must be attended with the misery of restless inconsistency. He laments his want of tranquillity and speaks of the power of application to composing studies as a blessing placed beyond his attainment which he regrets.

When the mathematician says that such and such a proposition is true of one thing it may be interesting and it is surely safe. But when he tries to extend his proposition to everything though it is much more interesting it is also much more dangerous. In the transition from one to all from the specific to the general mathematics has made its greatest progress and suffered its most serious setbacks of which the logical paradoxes constitute the most important part. For if mathematics is to advance securely and confidently it must first set its affairs in order at home.

I do hate sums. There is no greater mistake than to call arithmetic an exact science. There are permutations and aberrations discernible to minds entirely noble like mine; subtle variations which ordinary accountants fail to discover; hidden laws of number which it requires a mind like mine to perceive. For instance if you add a sum from the bottom up and then from the top down the result is always different.

There are times when minds need to turn to simple things. Perhaps for a few of these nights all of us might do well to leave the briefcases at the office and to read again the pages of the Bible and to re-read the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States. 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.

It seems to me that the thing that makes the theater worthwhile is the fact that it attracts so many people with ideas who are constantly trying to share them with the public.

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.

(On the anthropogenic increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration) The essential fact which emerges ... is that the three smallest and most active reservoirs (of carbon in the global carbon cycle) the atmosphere the plants and the soil are all of roughly the same size. This means that large human disturbance of any one of these reservoirs will have large effects on all three. We cannot hope either to understand or to manage the carbon in the atmosphere unless we understand and manage the trees and the soil too.

The old people came literally to love the soil and they sat or reclined on the ground with a feeling of being close to a mothering power. It was good for the skin to touch the earth and the old people liked to remove their moccasins and walk with bare feet on the sacred earth. Their tipis were built upon the earth and their altars were made of earth. The birds that flew into the air came to rest upon the earth and it was the final abiding place of all things that lived and grew. The soil was soothing strengthening cleansing and healing.

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 nonsymbolic nonconceptual 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 nondual awareness called Absolute Subjectivity.

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.

Sweep the garden any size said the roshi. Sweeping sweeping alone as the garden grows large or small.

We found Matisse living in a small house with a magnificent sweeping view beyond his vegetable garden. In one room there was a cage with a lot of fluttering birds. The place was covered with paintings most of them obviously new ones. I marveled at his production and I asked him What is your inspiration? I grow artichokes he said. His eyes smiled at my surprise and he went on to explain: Every morning I go into the garden and watch these plants. I see the play of light and shade on the leaves and I discover new combinations of colors and fantastic patterns. I study them. They inspire me. Then I go back to the studio and paint.

Death is only an old door Set in a garden wall; On quiet hinges it gives at dusk When the thrushes call. Along the lintel are green leaves Beyond the light lies still; Very weary and willing feet Go over that sill. There is nothing to trouble any heart; Nothing to hurt at all. Death is only an old door In a garden wall.

There are sacred moments in life when we experience in rational and very direct ways that separation the boundary between ourselves and other people and between ourselves and Nature is illusion.
