    "For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."

    - David Rockefeller

  13. I was just thinking about acceptance and how important it is if one wishes to live a good full life, and that the greatest force that works against us is our inability to accept that life, fully, with all of its startling contradictions. The fact that we live in a world of unbelievable cruelty coupled deeply with staggering beauty, sweet supple leaf petals and hot shrapnel flying hot through warm flesh. The dueling contradictions in life give us no relief, nor should they because in relief we cease to grow.

    I've been trying to accept life for some time now, heh, maybe one of these days I'll listen to myself.

  16. "I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong."

    ~John Lennon~

  18. "Your god is dead and only the ignorant weep. And if you claim there is a hell, then we shall meet there!” - Friedrich Nietzsche

    "After coming into contact with a religious man I always feel I must wash my hands." - Friedrich Nietzsche

    "There are two kinds of scientific progress: the methodical experimentation and categorization which gradually extend the boundaries of knowledge, and the revolutionary leap of genius which redefines and transcends those boundaries. Acknowledging our debt to the former, we yearn nonetheless for the latter." - Academician Prokhor Zakharov

    "Technological advance is an inherently iterative process. One does not simply take sand from the beach and produce a Dataprobe. We use crude tools to fashion better tools, and then our better tools to fashion more precise tools, and so on. Each minor refinement is a step in the process, and all of the steps must be taken. " - Chairman Sheng-ji Yang

    "Heaven lasts long, and Earth abides

    " - Lao Tzu
  19. "A new consciousness is developing which sees the earth as a single organism and recognizes that an organism at war with itself is doomed."
