Interesting Quotes

Post by RichardF on Fri Apr 01, 2011 8:33 am

I know, [there is] no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of society, but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. This is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.
Thomas Jefferson, in an 1820 letter to William C. Jarvis

Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.

If you can dream it, you can do it. Always remember that this whole thing was started with a dream and a mouse.

I read somewhere that everybody on this planet is separated by only six other people. Six degrees of separation between us and everyone else on this planet. The President of the United States, a gondolier in Venice, just fill in the names. I find it A) extremely comforting that we're so close, and B) like Chinese water torture that we're so close because you have to find the right six people to make the right connection... I am bound to everyone on this planet by a trail of six people.

The hero of my tale, whom I love with all the power of my soul, whom I have tried to portray in all his beauty, who has been, is, and will be beautiful, is Truth.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Of course, it should be noted that one of the facts Thoreau learned from those woods was that forests are flammable. Shocked
Maybe it was necessary for him to absorb the more basic lessons before advancing to the deeper topics?

Every small adjustment we make to ourselves, choice, influence, random encounter, deliberate avoidance, etc. shifts our own centers of balance to a greater or lesser degree and affects where our next step may fall on the path. That step still may land squarely on the path and lead on to yet another step. Or, it may lead us to twist an ankle and fall before the rarest and most beautiful flower, which otherwise we would have passed by without noticing and being shaped by its wonder.

"Peace is no mere matter of men fighting or not fighting. Peace, to have meaning for many who have known only suffering in both peace and war, must be translated into bread or rice, shelter, health, and education, as well as freedom and human dignity - a steadily better life. If peace is to be secure, long-suffering and long starved, forgotten peoples of the world, the underprivileged and the undernourished, must begin to realize without delay the promise of a new day and a new life." -Ralph J. Bunche

So often times it happens that we live our lives in chains
That we never even know we have the key

For all your days be prepared,
and meet them ever alike.
When you are the anvil, bear.
When you are the hammer, strike.
And when you are the horseshoe, bend.

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

The first thing to say is I’m sorry. We’re sorry for the massive disruption it’s caused their lives. There’s no one who wants this over more than I do. I would like my life back.

We have not been given the lead in the cosmic drama. Perhaps someone else has, perhaps no one else has. In either case, we have good reason for humility.
