Philosophy is properly Home-sickness; the wish to be everywhere at home.
The human soul is on its journey from the law to love, from discipline to liberation, from the moral plane to the spiritual.
When shall we see a life full of steady enthusiasm, walking straight to its aim, flying home, as that bird is now, against the wind — with the calmness and the confidence of one who knows the laws of God and can apply them?
Learning in the true sense of the word is possible only in that state of attention, in which there is no outer or inner compulsion. Right thinking can come about only when the mind is not enslaved by tradition and memory. It is attention that allows silence to come upon the mind, which is the opening of the door to creation. That is why attention is of the highest importance. Knowledge is necessary at the functional level as a means of cultivating the mind, and not as an end in itself. We are concerned, not with the development of just one capacity, such as that of a mathematician, or a scientist, or a musician, but with the total development of the student as a human being.
A people that honors its past, secures its future!
To match political correctness, God began to rewrite several parts of the Bible!
Iago: Do it not with poison. Strangle her in her bed, even the bed she hath contaminated.
Costard: This was no damsel, neither, sir; she was a virgin.
Ferdinand: It is so varied, too; for it was proclaimed 'virgin.'
Costard: If it were, I deny her virginity: I was taken with a maid.
Propaganda tells us a truth today, without caring that this truth will turn out to be false tomorrow.
History does not mean knowing everything about the past, but also understanding correctly "why".
