one of all time favorite authors. sometimes i feel as if i'd listened to him really speak when i watch hal holbrook playing him.

There are no accidents, all things have a deep and calculated purpose; sometimes the methods employed by Providence seem strange and incongruous, but we have only to be patient and wait for the result: then we recognize that no others would have answered the purpose, and we are rebuked and humbled.- "The Refuge of the Derelicts" published in Fables of Man

It is always the way; words will answer as long as it is only a person's neighbor who is in trouble, but when that person gets into trouble himself, it is time that the King rise up and do something.Personal Reflections of Joan of Arc

Of all the animals, man is the only one that is cruel. He is the only one that inflicts pain for the pleasure of doing it.- "The Lowest Animal"

 
It is just like man's vanity and impertinence to call an animal dumb because it is dumb to his dull perceptions.What is Man? 


..armaments were not created chiefly for the protection of the nations but for their enslavement.- Letter to Baroness von Suttner, 2/17/1898 (quoted in Carl Dolmetsch, Our Famous Guest)
