The World Outside Us

"We may privately prefer beech trees to cedars, this type of character to that, and have our private evaluations of what a worthy life really is.

Finish

"Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day, begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with old nonsense. This day is all that is good and fair. It is too dear, with its hopes and invitations to waste a moment on the yesterdays." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

New Day

"We really believed in our hearts that this was the dawn of the new day we had all been praying for and talking about for so many years. We were absolutely certain that we had won the first great victory of the peace - and by 'we' I mean all of us, the whole civilized human race. The Russians had proved that they could be reasonable and farseeing and there wasn't any doubt in the minds of the President or us that we could live with them and get along with them peaceably for as far into the future as any of us could imagine." - H. Hopkins

Thought

"The great thinker is the secretary of his age. If his quick glancing mind outruns the swiftest of his contemporaries he will not be listened to; the prophet must find disciples. If he outruns the majority of his contemporaries, he will have but a small circle of influence, for all originality is estrangement." G. H. Lewes

America in this young century, proclaims liberty throughout the world and to all the inhabitants thereof." George W. Bush

The Guide

"The man who hath within no guiding light walks in the blazing noon day as in the night. Whom God illumines, dwells in undimmed day; through the storm and the night he treads a clear way." - T.C. Clark

Saturday, March 1, 2014

Universal Healthcare

"Healthcare is a matter of human dignity. Healthcare is a matter of the common good. Healthcare ought to be one of the blessings of liberty. A government which derives its legitimacy from arms and forces while the basic needs of the people are wanting needs to be stirred by conscience and by action. This is our challenge and let it be our cause, to repair the health of our nation and its people, to establish healthcare as a basic human right through creating universal healthcare in the United States." - Dennis Kucinich

Interpretation involves four related intellectual acts: observing, connecting, inferring and concluding." - Di Yanni

Source

"Life longs to return to its source. The source, however, can only be found in the land of childhood. Where one as family can receive directions from the unconscious. Not only he is childish, who remains a child too long but also he who parts himself from his childhood and supposes it has therewith ceased to exist. For he does not know that everything pertaining to the psyche has a double face. The one looks forward, the other looks back. It is ambiguous and therefore symbolic, like all living reality." - Carl Jung

Self

"The individual must control the deepest perception of himself, lest he be overwhelmed by the forces of negativity and defeat in those around him." - Anonymous

Solitude

"The day, with the work God gave me to do, is done, and now He has given me the night, quiet and soothing, for rest.

Political Procedure

"The process of so balancing and harmonizing forces and interests that none will establish an intolerable domination over all, and each will co-exist with the others in rough parity, is of the essence of all politics, at least where power is shared among equals. In this large sense a dynamic balance ... is the presupposition of all civic order and stable government." - Frederick L. Schuman

Saturday, January 18, 2014
