You have feet in your shoes,
You can steer yourself
In any direction you chose."

Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. - The Declaration of Independence

"The right question is: What am I NOT to do? Negative questioning. It is only through negation that I come to the positive, not through the positive to further positiveness...So, the denial of the false is the uncovering of what is true. I don't have to seek truth."

"The budget should be balanced,

the Treasury should be refilled,

public debt should be reduced,

the arrogance of officialdom should be

tempered and controlled,

and the assistance to foreign lands

should be curtailed lest Rome become

bankrupt. People must again learn to work,

instead of living on public assistance." -

Cicero - 55 BC

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life,

and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what

you believe is great work. And the only way to do

great work is to love what you do. If you haven't

found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all

matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it."

Steve Jobs

of severe unemployment, was produced by

government mismanagement rather than by

"The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and

the laborer... form the great body of the people

of the United States, they are the bone and

"A good dancer is not necessarily defined

by great technique, skill, or ability to pick

up choreography but by confidence. When

you feel the music, it penetrates to your soul.

Everybody's a dancer. The greatest dancer

is someone who is willing to dance, not afraid."

our soldiers will never forget: that whether

we are black or brown or white, we all

bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all

enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and

we all salute the same great American Flag."

"Anyone who knows anything of history

knows that great social changes are

impossible without feminine upheaval.

Social progress can be measured exactly

by the social position of the fair sex,

the ugly ones included."
