Now the trumpet summons us again -- not as a call to bear arms, though arms we need -- not as a call to battle, though embattled we are -- but a call to bear the burden of a long twilight struggle year in and year out, "rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation" -- a struggle against the common enemies of man: tyranny, poverty and war itself.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy

"I mourn the loss of thousands of

precious lives, but I will not rejoice in

the death of one, not even an enemy.

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate,

adding deeper darkness to a night

already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light

can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate:

only love can do that"

—Martin Luther King jnr.

"Most human beings only think they want freedom.

In truth they yearn for the bondage of social order, rigid

laws, materialism, the only freedom man really wants, is

the freedom to become comfortable."

Since nothing is so secret or hidden that it cannot be revealed, everything depends on the discovery of those things which manifest the hidden.... He who wishes to explore Nature must tread her books with his feet.

Mine is

1[ a total knowledge of a single subject[plant biology as a example] should be a right[as formal education] but is a luxury and much harder and expensive for total knowledge ]

2[if I left[created] a quartz monolith 100 feet tall by 4 foot wide at he base] on a distant planet with my sayings inscribed on it on each of the 4 sides, it would be only a monument to remind myself of my sayings].

Aliens wouldn't care if they saw it or could understand the language or the sayings if deciphered.
