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.–Rumi
When we begin to search for the principle of unity [in the Bible], the first thing we observe is that the whole of the varied material is strung upon a thread which consists of narrative. This narrative gives a kind of `calvacade’ of human life through many centuries, beginning in the cloudy realms of myth and legend, and emerging into straightforward history.
Capitalism does not permit an even flow of economic resources. With this system, a small privileged few are rich beyond conscience, and almost all others are doomed to be poor at some level. That’s the way the system works. And since we know that the system will not change the rules, we are going to have to change the system.Martin Luther King, Jr.[From Brainy Quote]
Freedom of speech means freedom from rhetoric.
A president who won’t read has no advantage over one who can’t read.
[GDS changed person to president]
Riches and abundance come hypocritically clad in sheep’s clothing pretending to be security against anxieties, and they become then the object of anxiety … they secure a man against anxieties just about as well as the wolf which is put to tending the sleep secures them … against the wolf.
