We often feel like hapless atoms, running endlessly according to the blueprints and programs of unseen masters, whether itís the banking industry, Madison Avenue, whoever. We tend to disempower ourselves. We tend to believe that we donít matter. And in the act of taking that idea to ourselves we give everything away to somebody else, to something else.
Terence McKenna

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
"Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you, nor all these others; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be."

"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"

apparently falsely attributed to martin luther king, nice message though i guess.

In Occidental theology, the word transcendent is used to mean outside of the world. In the East, it means outside of thought. To imagine that your definitions of your God have anything to do with that ultimate mystery is a form of sheer idolatry from this standpoint. Your God is good enough for you and mine’s good enough for me. A God, from this point of view, is merely a reflex of one’s ability to conceive of God. Since people have various abilities of this sort, they have various powers of apprehending God.

"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."

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.
