"Athens built the Acropolis. Corinth was a commercial city, interested in

purely materialistic things. Today we admire Athens, visit it, preserve the

old temples, yet we hardly ever set foot in Corinth."

-- Dr. Harold Urey, Nobel Laureate in chemistry

I get up each morning, gather my wits.

Pick up the paper, read the obits.

If I'm not there I know I'm not dead.

So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed.

Oh, how do I know my youth is all spent?

My get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went.

But in spite of it all, I'm able to grin,

And think of the places my get-up has been.

-- Pete Seeger

I woke last night to the sound of thunder,

How far off I sat and wondered,

Started humming a song from 1962

Ain't it funny how the night moves

When you just don't seem to have as much to lose

Strange how the night moves

With autumn closing in

Bob Seger

Water

The best of man is like water,

Which benefits all things, and does not contend with them,

Which flows in places that others disdain,

Where it is in harmony with the Way.

So the sage:

Lives within nature,

Thinks within the deep,

Gives within impartiality,

Speaks within trust,

Governs within order,

Crafts within ability,

Acts within opportunity.

He does not contend, and none contend against him.

-- Lao Tse, "Tao Te Ching"

The only solution is ... a balance of power. We arm our side with exactly

that much more. A balance of power -- the trickiest, most difficult,

dirtiest game of them all. But the only one that preserves both sides.

-- Kirk, "A Private Little War", stardate 4211.8

In the broad and final sense all institutions are educational in the

sense that they operate to form the attitudes, dispositions, abilities

and disabilities that constitute a concrete personality...Whether this

educative process is carried on in a predominantly democratic or non-

democratic way becomes, therefore, a question of transcendent importance

not only for education itself but for its final effect upon all the

interests and activities of a society that is committed to the democratic

way of life.

-- John Dewey (1859-1953), American philosopher

When you are courting a nice girl an hour seems like a second.

When you sit on a red-hot cinder a second seems like an hour.

That's relativity.
