which begins by avoiding the intimacies
and eventually eliminates speech altogether.
- Jorge Luis Borges

When we come into the present,
we begin to feel the life around us again,

our loss, our secret hopes our love -
everything that moves us most deeply.

you have to find your innermost core on your own,
with no guide, no guiding scriptures.

has found the sunrise.
Others only believe.
Those who believe are not religious,
they are simply avoiding the great adventure
of religion by believing.
- Osho

They knew that it was a mortal sin to marry
someone of a different skin color.

and the vulgar disparity of life around you.
To seek joy in the saddest places.

or complicate what is simple.

Above all, to watch. To try to understand.
To never look away. And never, never, to forget.

Having seen the devastation of war first hand,
Eisenhower came both to despise war
and to see that "war settles nothing."

When truly necessary, violence met with violence -
but never hate responded to with hate.

From the way most people live,
one would never guess that humans are beings of free will.
Repetition can be a choice, but often it isn't.
The athlete or pianist who practices the same routine
day after day, year after year, has their eye on a goal.
The unending repetition is a conscious choice
in the pursuit of a life dream.
But what about the sameness of most lives?
Observe the morning commute, the after-work drink,
the Sunday football game or religious service -
how many of those people are consciously following their dream,
training their mind, body, and spirit through that daily repetition?
And how many are mindlessly slogging through each day
out of habit and boredom?
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I was bold in the pursuit of knowledge,
never fearing to follow truth and reason

We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal;
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable rights;
that among these are life, liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness.
- Thomas Jefferson

For this generation, ours, life is nuclear survival,
liberty is human rights, the pursuit of happiness
is a planet whose resources are devoted
to the physical and spiritual nourishment of its inhabitants.
- Jimmy Carter

It is a wonderful advantage to a man,
in every pursuit or avocation,
to secure an adviser in a sensible woman.
In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact,
and a plain soundness of judgement,
which are rarely combined to an equal degree in man.
A woman, if she be really your friend,
will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute.
She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing:
for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.
- Edward Bulwer-Lytton

We have only this moment,
sparkling like a star in our hand -
and melting like a snowflake.

is for enough good men to do nothing.

considering individual rights,
because you can't have five wolves and one sheep
voting on what to have for dinner.
