"The souls of people, on their way to Earth-life, pass through a room full of lights; each takes a taper--often only a spark--to guide it in the dim country of this world. But some souls, by rare fortune, are detained longer--and have time to grab a handful of tapers, which they weave into a torch. These are the torch-bearers of humanity-- it's poets, seers, and saints, who lead and lift the race out of darkness, toward the light. They are the law- givers and saviors, the light-bringers, way-showers and truth -tellers, and without them, humanity would lose its way in the dark.”
"We have grasped the mystery of the atom and rejected the Sermon on the Mount. The world has achieved brilliance without wisdom; power without conscience. Ours is a world of nuclear giants, and ethical infants. We know more about war than we know about peace, more about killing than we know about living."
General Omar Bradley, former chairperson U.S. Joint chiefs of Staff

"Give peace a chance, just give me some truth!"
John Lennon, 1969
"Woe is to you who cannot read the signs of the times..."
"Nothing is certain but the unforeseen."
an ancient Chinese Philosopher
"Humanity, as never before, is split into two apparently irreconcilable halves. Psychological rule says that when an inner situation in not made conscious, it happens outside, as fate. That is to say, when the individual remains divided and has not become conscious of his inner contradictions, the world must perforce act out the conflict and be torn into opposite halves."
Dr. Carl Jung, psychiatrist
"I cannot live without books."
