[Humanity Is An Organism, Inherently Rejecting All That Is Deleterious, That Is, Wrong, And Absorbing After Trial What Is Beneficial, That Is, Right. If So Disposed, The Architect Of The Universe, We Must Assume, Might Have Made The World And Man Perfect, Free From Evil And From Pain, As Angels In Heaven Are Thought To Be; But Although This Was Not Done, Man Has Been Given The Power Of Advancement Rather Than Of Retrogression. The Old And New Testaments Remain, Like Other Sacred Writings Of Other Lands, Of Value As Records Of The Past And For Such Good Lessons As They Inculcate. Like The Ancient Writers Of The Bible Our Thoughts Should Rest Upon This Life And Our Duties Here. "To Perform The Duties Of This World Well, Troubling Not About Another, Is The Prime Wisdom," Says Confucius, Great Sage And Teacher. The Next World And Its Duties We Shall Consider When We Are Placed In It.]

Ian Stewart Quotes

"Barzellette matematiche I (*)Un biologo, uno statistico e un matematico sono seduti un caffè e guardano alla gente che passa.Un uomo e una donna entrano in un palazzo dallaltra parte della strada. Dieci minuti dopo ne escono accompagnati da un bambino."Si sono riprodotti" dice il biologo."No" ribatte lo statistico. "È un errore nellosservazione. In media sono sia entrate sia uscite due persone mezza"."No, no, no" interviene il matematico. "È del tutto ovvio. Se adesso entra qualcuno, il palazzo sarà vuoto".(*) Lo scopo principale di queste barzellette non è farvi ridere, ma mostrarvi che cosè che fa ridere i matematici e consentirvi di sbirciare in un angolo oscuro del loro ambiente culturale."

Stephen Parrish Quotes

"An old book was a time capsule. When you opened the front cover, you opened a door to another world—a world accessible through a kind of looking glass made of hard-board and cloth. The authors voice resonated in the readers head with the same words that had resonated in his own as he wrote them. He spoke to the reader from the past. What he had witnessed, experienced, learned, and discovered would live forever. You only had to turn a page to travel in time."

Quotes About Being Owed

"I will be forever grateful for your presence in my life. I am a much better human being because of you. The experience of loving you, living with you, was the greatest journey of my life thus far. You showed me an alternative to the man I was becoming.I know I still have much to learn, much to accomplish, and I know my future is bright. I owe you the confidence I now have in myself. This is the confidence that could only come from the knowledge that a woman of your caliber loved me for who I am; for what you saw in me.You are a great woman and I mean that in the strongest sense of the phrase. You feel deeply, think deeply, and live deeply. I admire so much about you. Regardless of whether our paths cross again, know that I am actively wishing you success and happiness. I pray that you will once again be part of my life. But if left with just the experience weve shared, I know my life was better because of it." - Author: Emma Forrest

Quotes About Bad Motives

"It is one thing to make a mistake, and quite another thing not to admit it. People will forgive mistakes, because mistakes are usually of the mind, mistakes of judgment. But people will not easily forgive the mistakes of the heart, the ill intention, the bad motives, the prideful justifying cover-up of the first mistake." - Author: Stephen R. Covey

Quotes About Inconsequential

"To accept the environmentalist argument that the suffering of individual animals is inconsequential compared to the ozone layer, we must be willing to admit that the sufferings of minority groups, raped women, battered wives, abused children, people sitting on death row, and our loved ones are small potatoes beneath the hole in the sky. To worry about any of them is, in effect, to miniaturize the big picture to portraits of battered puppy dogs." - Author: Karen Davis
