The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people, and must be willing to bear the expense of it," [John] Adams wrote. "There should not be a district of one mile square, without a school in it, not founded by a charitable individual, but maintained at the public expense of the people themselves." Jefferson's fear was that without such a system of public education, the country would end up being ruled by a privileged elite that would recycle itself through a network of private institutions that entrenched their advantage.Fareed Zakaria Being Ruled Sayings By Fareed Zakaria: The whole people must take upon themselves the education of the whole people, and must
We came to enjoy; we are being enjoyed. We came to rule; we are being ruled. We came to work; we are being worked. All the time, we find that. And this comes into every detail of our life.Swami Vivekananda Being Ruled Sayings By Swami Vivekananda: We came to enjoy; we are being enjoyed. We came to rule; we are being
In different degrees, in every part of the town, men and women had been yearning for a reunion, not of the same kind for all, but for all alike ruled out. Most of them had longed intensely for an absent one, for the warmth of a body, for love, or merely a life that habit had endeared. Some, often without knowing it, suffered from being deprived of the company of friends and from their inability to get in touch with them through the usual channels of friendship - letters, trains, and boats. Others, fewer these ... had desired a reunion with something they couldn't have defined, but which seemed to them the only desirable thing on earth. For want of a better name, they sometimes called it peace.Albert Camus Being Ruled Sayings By Albert Camus: In different degrees, in every part of the town, men and women had been yearning
In an Empire that was simply stagnant, neither being developed nor falling to pieces, and in an England ruled by people whose chief asset was their stupidity, to be 'clever' was to be suspect. If you had the kind of brain that could understand the poems of T.S. Eliot or the theories of Karl Marx, the higher-ups would see to it that you were kept out of any important job.George Orwell Being Ruled Sayings By George Orwell: In an Empire that was simply stagnant, neither being developed nor falling to pieces, and
Faith in God offers no insurance against tragedy. Nor does it offer insurance against feelings of doubt and betrayal. If anything, being a Christian complicates the issue. If you believe in a world of pure chance, what difference does it make whether a bus from Yuba City or one from Salina crashes? But if you believe in a world ruled by a powerful God who loves you tenderly, then it makes an awful difference.Philip Yancey Being Ruled Sayings By Philip Yancey: Faith in God offers no insurance against tragedy. Nor does it offer insurance against feelings
There is ... a contemporary trend to make a sort of 'common intellect' out of society and forbid man his own independent access to truth. All is culture-clouded, and society as the climate of thought is the cause of our thoughts. But in Thomas's theory a man can transcend his environment just as he can transcend the material conditions surrounding any essence; material conditions will be his point of departure, and yet arrival at the truth or being of whatever he is studying is not ruled out. As an unlimited power, man's intellect opens man to the infinite, although only love reaches it. The relation of each man to transcendent existence in his knowing and living experience - this is the ground of objectivity.Mary T. Clark Being Ruled Sayings By Mary T. Clark: There is ... a contemporary trend to make a sort of 'common intellect' out of
We should be more concerned with being ruled by fear than we are with being ruled by our imaginations.Gregory Mapes Being Ruled Sayings By Gregory Mapes: We should be more concerned with being ruled by fear than we are with being
Justice therefore demands that no one should do more ruling than being ruled, but that all should have their turn.Aristotle. Being Ruled Sayings By Aristotle.: Justice therefore demands that no one should do more ruling than being ruled, but that
In addition to world conflicts, the most challenging problem we face today is hunger, deprivation and social injustice. Because we're ruled by separate self-interest, we go on accumulating personal wealth, ignoring the well being of the others.Satish Kumar Being Ruled Sayings By Satish Kumar: In addition to world conflicts, the most challenging problem we face today is hunger, deprivation
There was a time when intellectual meant someone who uses reason and intellect. Today, people who call themselves intellectuals are in a form of mental death spiral: they search for, and find, those index cards that support their world view, and clutch little red books like rosaries in the face of all external evidence. They are ruled by appeals to authority. Their self-image and sense of emotional well-being trumps any and all objective evidence to the contrary.Bill Whittle Being Ruled Sayings By Bill Whittle: There was a time when intellectual meant someone who uses reason and intellect. Today, people
I think the main benefit is that much of the traditional parenting that's being carried out today is so fear based and while the parent thinks they're in control they're really being ruled by fear. Everything is connected to fear.Shefali Tsabary Being Ruled Sayings By Shefali Tsabary: I think the main benefit is that much of the traditional parenting that's being carried
Michelle: The dreaded elf walked into the dining room seconds after I sat down. What business of his was it if I didn't have a clan? It wasn't often I regretted my upbringing but being questioned about a clan stirred unhappy feelings. I'm a witch, but a witch without a clan. Mom had been expelled from her clan before I was born because she wouldn't say who my father was. The clan elders ruled that he must have been human. Unfortunately for my mom, she wasn't much of a witch and breeding with a human was against clan law. I'm not sure who my dad was, but he wasn't around. I've always thought he was from a clan hers didn't favor because I sure had magic and lots of it.N.E. Conneely Being Ruled Sayings By N.E. Conneely: Michelle: The dreaded elf walked into the dining room seconds after I sat down. What
What's the use of healing, if the life that's saved is callow and selfish and ruled by fear? There's a difference between being in sanctuary and being in hiding.Louise Penny Being Ruled Sayings By Louise Penny: What's the use of healing, if the life that's saved is callow and selfish and
We have castrated society through fear and intimidation. Its manhood exists only in combination with a feminine outward appearance. Being so neutered, the populace has become docile and easily ruled. As all geldings in nature, their thoughts are not involved with the concerns of the future and their posterity, but only with the present toil and the next meal,Harold Wallace Rosenthal Being Ruled Sayings By Harold Wallace Rosenthal: We have castrated society through fear and intimidation. Its manhood exists only in combination with
It has been said that figures rule the world. Maybe. But I am sure that figures show us whether it is being ruled well or badly.Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe Being Ruled Sayings By Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: It has been said that figures rule the world. Maybe. But I am sure that
More than any other personality trait, my mother seemed to be ruled by anger and sadness. She seemed to hate being a mother. Watching her unhappiness as I grew up made me conclude that the answer was to try and be as unemotional as I could, which many therapists have taught me is a bad idea. It also made me want to avoid marriage and having children.Merrill Markoe Being Ruled Sayings By Merrill Markoe: More than any other personality trait, my mother seemed to be ruled by anger and
SELF-DISCIPLINE, more than any other personal quality I can think of, is the one thing that separates successful people from the unsuccessful. Think of all it encompasses: honoring commitments, promises and deadlines, keeping your life on schedule, being willing to go the extra mile ... Self-discipline is essential to success. The alternative is a life ruled by emotions, and none of us can afford that if we're going to fulfill our purpose and realize our potential.John C. Maxwell Being Ruled Sayings By John C. Maxwell: SELF-DISCIPLINE, more than any other personal quality I can think of, is the one thing
Helena, like many women who ruled their own lives, adored being told what to do when there was no obligation to follow the advice given.Elizabeth Ironside Being Ruled Sayings By Elizabeth Ironside: Helena, like many women who ruled their own lives, adored being told what to do
This is a throwback to the Aristotelian conception of nature, banished from the scene at the birth of modern science. But I have been persuaded that the idea of teleological laws is coherent, and quite different from the idea of explanation of the intentions of a purposive being who produces the means to his ends by choice. In spite of the exclusion of teleology from contemporary science, it certainly shouldn't be ruled out a priori. Formally, the possibility of principles of change over time tending toward certain types of outcome is coherent, in a world in which the nonteleological laws are not fully deterministic.Thomas Nagel Being Ruled Sayings By Thomas Nagel: This is a throwback to the Aristotelian conception of nature, banished from the scene at
Had the cub thought in man-fashion, he might have epitomized life as a voracious appetite, and the world as a place wherein ranged a multitude of appetites, pursuing and being pursued, hunting and being hunted, eating and being eaten, all in blindness and confusion, with violence and disorder, a chaos of gluttony and slaughter, ruled over by chance, merciless, planless, endless.Jack London Being Ruled Sayings By Jack London: Had the cub thought in man-fashion, he might have epitomized life as a voracious appetite,
Men are especially intolerant of serving and being ruled by, their equals.Baruch Spinoza Being Ruled Sayings By Baruch Spinoza: Men are especially intolerant of serving and being ruled by, their equals.
The flower, as he saw it, ruled over evil; it absorbed in itself all innocently shed blood (that is why it is so red) all tears and all the gall of humanity. It was an awful and mysterious being, the antitheses of God, an Ahriman presenting a most unassuming and innocent appearance. It was necessary to break it off and kill it. But this was not all; it was also necessary not to permit it at its death to discharge its evil upon the world.Vsevolod Garshin Being Ruled Sayings By Vsevolod Garshin: The flower, as he saw it, ruled over evil; it absorbed in itself all innocently
From the first moment I saw you in your gilded box the young tyrant who sent me to die you have ruled all my thoughts. I hated that you were so beautiful. I had no idea you were the incredible being you are. Give me all the beats of your heart and I will spend all my days trying to make up for what I've done to you and all my nights worshipping you. XanJez Morrow Being Ruled Sayings By Jez Morrow: From the first moment I saw you in your gilded box the young tyrant who
The global empire being forged before our eyes is not governed by any particular state or ethnic group. Much like the Late Roman Empire, it is ruled by a multi-ethnic elite, and is held together by a common culture and common interests.Yuval Noah Harari Being Ruled Sayings By Yuval Noah Harari: The global empire being forged before our eyes is not governed by any particular state
A tolerant person should not be harrased. The subject or the ruled ones generally is loyal to the ruler. The people tak to revolt when they are helpless. The duty of the ruler is that his humble people mey not tak to revolt being suppressed by his bad polity. Considering the forbearance of the subject, do not ill behave with them so that they may feel oppressed.Chanakya Being Ruled Sayings By Chanakya: A tolerant person should not be harrased. The subject or the ruled ones generally is
The quest for enlightenment illustrates the paradox of desire - the fact that you must have desire to be motivated to transcend being ruled by desire.Paul O'Brien Being Ruled Sayings By Paul O'Brien: The quest for enlightenment illustrates the paradox of desire - the fact that you must
Rome ... at its most decadent, had never thought of hiring an actor to go through the motions of being an emperor while the Praetorian Guard ruled.Gore Vidal Being Ruled Sayings By Gore Vidal: Rome ... at its most decadent, had never thought of hiring an actor to go
Since being a Jew not only means that I bear within me a catastrophe that occurred yesterday and cannot be ruled out for tomorrow, it is-beyond being a duty-also fear. Every morning when I get up I can read the Auschwitz number on my forearm, something that touches the deepest and most closely intertwined roots of my existence; indeed I am not even sure if this is not my entire existence. Then I feel approximately as I did back then when I got a taste of the first blow from a policeman's fist. Every day anew I lose my trust in the world.Jean Amery Being Ruled Sayings By Jean Amery: Since being a Jew not only means that I bear within me a catastrophe that
Everything is interim. Everything is a path or a preparation for the next thing, and we never know what the next thing is. Life is like that, of course, twisty and surprising. But life with God is like that exponentially. We can dig in, make plans, write in stone, pretend we're not listening, but the voice of God has a way of being heard. It seeps in like smoke or vapor even when we've barred the door against any last-minute changes, and it moves us to different countries and different emotional territories and different ways of living. It keeps us moving and dancing and watching, and never lets us drop down into a life set on cruise control or a life ruled by remote control. Life with God is a dancing dream, full of flashes and last-minute exits and generally all the things we've said we'll never do. And with the surprises comes great hope.Shauna Niequist Being Ruled Sayings By Shauna Niequist: Everything is interim. Everything is a path or a preparation for the next thing, and
When individuals and communities do not govern self, they risk being ruled by external forces that care less about the well-being of the village.T.F. Hodge Being Ruled Sayings By T.F. Hodge: When individuals and communities do not govern self, they risk being ruled by external forces
The Church now has been placed potentially in the control of the heavenly places once ruled by the prince of the power of the air. But this reconstituted church must engage and defeat the enemy and retake the heavenlies in the name of her Lord, so that the eyes of those still being held captive by Satan will be opened.Ed Silvoso Being Ruled Sayings By Ed Silvoso: The Church now has been placed potentially in the control of the heavenly places once
The Catholic Church wasn't just a part of his parents' live, and his grandparents', it ruled their lives. The priests told them what to eat, what to do, who to vote for, what to think. What to believe.
Told them to have more and more babies. Kept them pregnant and poor and ignorant.
They'd been beaten in school, scolded in church, abused in the back rooms.
And when, after generations of this, they'd finally walked away, the Church had accused them of being unfaithful. And threatened them with eternal damnation.
Louise Penny Being Ruled Sayings By Louise Penny: The Catholic Church wasn't just a part of his parents' live, and his grandparents', it
In [the soul] one part naturally rules, and the other is subject, and the virtue of the ruler we maintain to be different from that of the subject; the one being the virtue of the rational, and the other of the irrational part. Now, it is obvious that the same principle applies generally, and therefore almost all things rule and are ruled according to nature.Aristotle. Being Ruled Sayings By Aristotle.: In [the soul] one part naturally rules, and the other is subject, and the virtue
Achati chuckled. You may be surprised. Some might come in the hopes of being snatched away to a secret place ruled by exotic women.Trudi Canavan Being Ruled Sayings By Trudi Canavan: Achati chuckled. You may be surprised. Some might come in the hopes of being snatched
My mom had told me the stories about the first few years she'd lived here. The way she told it, she was such a criminal even the most God-fearing church ladies got bored of reporting on her; she did the marketing on Sunday, dropped by any church she liked or none at all, was a feminist (which Mrs. Asher sometimes confused with communist), a Democrat (which Mrs. Lincoln pointed out practically had "demon" in the word itself), and worst of all, a vegetarian (which ruled out any dinner invitations from Mrs. Snow). Beyond that, beyond not being a member of the right church or the DAR or the National Rifle Association, was the fact that my mom was an outsider.Kami Garcia Being Ruled Sayings By Kami Garcia: My mom had told me the stories about the first few years she'd lived here.
I look forward to the day when business is less about being busy and more about being of service.

When Houses of Cards, become Houses of Hearts.

We can no longer afford to squander our passion on cold economics. It is time to reclaim our most valuable commodity and devote it to what's right. Devote it to concern & creation. To meaningful encounters & purpose-bound experiences.

May we no longer do business, but build places of thriving instead; ruled by one truth only ~ the wisdom of our hearts.
Ina Catrinescu Being Ruled Sayings By Ina Catrinescu: I look forward to the day when business is less about being busy and more
If a night-moth were to concentrate its will on flying to a star or some equally unattainable object, it wouldn't succeed. Only, it wouldn't even try in the first place. A moth confines its search to what has sense and value for it, what it needs, what is indispensable to its life ... if I imagined that I wanted under all circumstances to get to the North Pole, then to achieve it I would have to desire it strongly enough that my whole being was ruled by it. But if I were to decide to will that the pastor should stop wearing his glasses, it would be useless. That would be making a game of it.Hermann Hesse Being Ruled Sayings By Hermann Hesse: If a night-moth were to concentrate its will on flying to a star or some
Everything had changed suddenly
the tone, the moral climate; you didn't know what to think, whom to listen to. As if all your life you had been led by the hand like a small child and suddenly you were on your own, you had to learn to walk by yourself. There was no one around, neither family nor people whose judgment you respected. At such a time you felt the need of committing yourself to something absolute
life or truth or beauty
of being ruled by it in place of the man-made rules that had been discarded. You needed to surrender to some such ultimate purpose more fully, more unreservedly than you had ever done in the old familiar, peaceful days, in the old life that was now abolished and gone for good.
Boris Pasternak Being Ruled Sayings By Boris Pasternak: Everything had changed suddenlythe tone, the moral climate; you didn't know what to think, whom
It is easier to rule others than to keep from being ruled oneself.Francois De La Rochefoucauld Being Ruled Sayings By Francois De La Rochefoucauld: It is easier to rule others than to keep from being ruled oneself.
I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn't like doing. It seemed like life was a sort of narrowing tunnel. Right when you were born, the tunnel was huge. You could be anything. Then, like, the absolute second after you were born, the tunnel narrowed down to about half that size. You were a boy, and already it was certain you wouldn't be a mother and it was likely you wouldn't become a manicurist or a kindergarten teacher. Then you started to grow up and everything you did closed the tunnel in some more. You broke your arm climbing a tree and you ruled out being a baseball pitcher. You failed every math test you ever took and you canceled any hope of being a scientist. Like that. On and on through the years until you were stuck. You'd become a baker or a librarian or a bartender. Or an accountant. And there you were. I figured that on the day you died, the tunnel would be so narrow, you'd have squeezed yourself in with so many choices, that you just got squashed.Carol Rifka Brunt Being Ruled Sayings By Carol Rifka Brunt: I really wondered why people were always doing what they didn't like doing. It seemed
The wisdom to be on the throne of one's life must surpass the wisdom of the one being ruled, otherwise I will squander the whole of my life in the most appalling ways. By virtue of that reality, I would be wise to get out of the chair and invite God to have a seat.Craig D. Lounsbrough Being Ruled Sayings By Craig D. Lounsbrough: The wisdom to be on the throne of one's life must surpass the wisdom of
Phronimos, possessing practical wisdom . But the only virtue special to a ruler is practical wisdom; all the others must be possessed, so it seems, both by rulers and ruled. The virtue of a person being ruled is not practical wisdom but correct opinion; he is rather like a person who makes the pipes, while the ruler is the one who can play them.Aristotle. Being Ruled Sayings By Aristotle.: Phronimos, possessing practical wisdom . But the only virtue special to a ruler is practical
You do not want to live in a country ruled by people who never have any doubts. To have doubts is human. A horse has no doubts, a grasshopper has no doubts, an ant has no doubts. But a human being stops to think sometimes, and when he thinks, he hears a voice asking quietly, 'Are you certain that you are right? You must be certain before you pull that trigger. You must be certain before you put your knife to that man's throat.'
Would God have given us the power to question if he wanted us to behave like grasshoppers and ants? I am sure God takes pleasure in all the creatures of the world, but I am also sure that his greatest pleasure is a human being who puts his knife away because he is not sure, because a doubt has come into his mind.
Najaf Mazari Being Ruled Sayings By Najaf Mazari: You do not want to live in a country ruled by people who never have
Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so that the disposition that ruled Him will rule us. It will cost everything that is not of God in us.Oswald Chambers Being Ruled Sayings By Oswald Chambers: Sanctification means being made one with Jesus so that the disposition that ruled Him will
I'm tired of being ruled by the Skull and Bones. The only place they belong are on punk-rock albums!Jello Biafra Being Ruled Sayings By Jello Biafra: I'm tired of being ruled by the Skull and Bones. The only place they belong
There's a reason why kings built large palaces, sat on thrones and wore rubies all over. There's a whole social need for that, not to oppress the masses, but to impress the masses and make them proud and allow them to feel good about their culture, their government and their ruler so that they are left feeling that a ruler has the right to rule over them, so that they feel good rather than disgusted about being ruled. - George Lucas, New York Times, 1999David Brin Being Ruled Sayings By David Brin: There's a reason why kings built large palaces, sat on thrones and wore rubies all
Brought up a Presbyterian, indoctrinated from the Catechism, and being naturally of an inquiring mind, I fell a ready prey to the logic of infidelity, as soon as I began to think for myself. But that which at first threatened to be the utter shipwreck of faith in God and the Bible was, under God's providence, over-ruled for good, and merely wrecked my confidence in human creed and systems of Bible misinterpretations.Charles Taze Russell Being Ruled Sayings By Charles Taze Russell: Brought up a Presbyterian, indoctrinated from the Catechism, and being naturally of an inquiring mind,
Shall the dire day break when life
finds us merely husband and wife
with passion not so much denied
as neatly laundered and put aside
and the old joyous insistence
trimmed to placid coexistence?

Shall we sometime arise from bed
with not a carnal thought in our head
look at each other without surprise
out of wide awake uncandid eyes
touch and know no immediate urge
where all mysteries converge?

Speak for the sake of something to say
and now and then put on a display
of elaborate mimicry of the past to prove
that ritual reigns where once ruled love
and calmly observe those bleak rites
that once made splendour of our nights?

Dear, when we stop being outrageous
and no longer find contagious
the innumerable ecstasies we find
in rise of hand or leap of mind -
not now or then, love, need we fear thus;
those two sad people will not be us.
Christy Brown Being Ruled Sayings By Christy Brown: Shall the dire day break when lifefinds us merely husband and wifewith passion not so
Jefferson's fear was that without such a system of public education, the country would end up being ruled by a privileged elite that would recycle itself through a network of private institutions that entrenched their advantages.Fareed Zakaria Being Ruled Sayings By Fareed Zakaria: Jefferson's fear was that without such a system of public education, the country would end
We are very much like them: indiscriminate killers, ruled by drives little acknowledged and less understood, mindlessly territorial and murderously jealous - the only significant difference being that they have yet to master our expertise in hypocrisy, the gift of our superior intellect that enables us to slaughter one another in droves, more often than not under the auspices of an approving god!Rick Yancey Being Ruled Sayings By Rick Yancey: We are very much like them: indiscriminate killers, ruled by drives little acknowledged and less
If we find that certain foods are impossible to walk away from - we can't or won't deny ourselves an unhealthy choice in order to make a healthier choice - then it's a clue we are being ruled by this food on some level.Lysa TerKeurst Being Ruled Sayings By Lysa TerKeurst: If we find that certain foods are impossible to walk away from - we can't
Peter's mother was grand, in her way. She managed to complain almost ceaselessly without ever seeming trivial or kvetchy. She was regal rather than crotchety, she had been sent to live in this world from a better one, and she saved herself from mere mean-spiritedness by offering resignation in place of bile - by implying, every hour of her life, that although she objected to almost everybody and everythng she did so because she'd presided over some utopia, and so knew from experience how much better we all could do. She wanted more than anything to live under a benevolent dictator who was exactly like her without being her - if she actually ruled she would relinquish her right to object, and without her right to object who and what would she be?Michael Cunningham Being Ruled Sayings By Michael Cunningham: Peter's mother was grand, in her way. She managed to complain almost ceaselessly without ever

Ultimately, happiness comes down to choosing between the discomfort of becoming aware of your mental afflictions and the discomfort of being ruled by them.Yongey Mingyur Being Ruled Sayings By Yongey Mingyur: Ultimately, happiness comes down to choosing between the discomfort of becoming aware of your mental
It is essential that a child's life not be ruled by the adult's need for efficiency. Efficiency is the enemy of infancy. It is too costly in terms of the child's emotional economy. It drains the child's resources, prevents growth, stifles interests, and may lead to emotional meltdowns. Children need opportunities to experiment, struggle, and learn without being rushed or insulted. AnxietyHaim G. Ginott Being Ruled Sayings By Haim G. Ginott: It is essential that a child's life not be ruled by the adult's need for

The idea of the Universe being ruled by that marvelous old gentleman, is no longer plausible. It isn't that anybody has disproved it, but it just somehow doesn't go with the vast infinitude of the Universe.Alan Watts Being Ruled Sayings By Alan Watts: The idea of the Universe being ruled by that marvelous old gentleman, is no longer

Man is a deeply illogical being, and must be ruled illogically. Whatever that frigid prig Bentham may say, there are innumerable motives that have nothing to do with utility.Patrick O'Brian Being Ruled Sayings By Patrick O'Brian: Man is a deeply illogical being, and must be ruled illogically. Whatever that frigid prig
But because it lay between those two countries, first it would be conquered and ruled by the Egyptians, and then the Babylonians would invade, so that the people who lived there were constantly being driven from one place to another. They built themselves towns and fortresses, to no avail. They were still not strongE.H. Gombrich Being Ruled Sayings By E.H. Gombrich: But because it lay between those two countries, first it would be conquered and ruled
Just as the banqueteers are drunk from wine, the citizens are drunk from fears, hopes, desires, and aversions and are therefore in need of being ruled by a man who is sober.Leo Strauss Being Ruled Sayings By Leo Strauss: Just as the banqueteers are drunk from wine, the citizens are drunk from fears, hopes,
For the anarch, things are not so simple, especially when he has a background in history. If he remains free of being ruled, whether by sovereigns or by society, this does not mean that he refuses to serve in any way. In general, he serves no worse than anyone else, and sometimes even better, if he likes the game. He only holds back from the pledge, the sacrifice, the ultimate devotion. These are issues of metaphysical integrity ...Ernst Junger Being Ruled Sayings By Ernst Junger: For the anarch, things are not so simple, especially when he has a background in
Man is not to direct or to be directed anymore than a tree or a cloud or a stone

Man is not to rule or be ruled anymore than a faith or a truth or a love

Man is not to doubt or to be doubted anymore than a wave or a seed or a fire

There is no problem in living which life hasn't answered to its own need

And we cannot direct, rule, or doubt what is beyond our highest ability to understand we can only be humble before it we can only worship ourselves because we are a part of it

The eye in the leaf is watching out of our fingers
The ear in the stone is listening through our voices
The thought of the wave is thinking in our dreams
The faith of the seed is building with our deaths
Kenneth Patchen Being Ruled Sayings By Kenneth Patchen: Man is not to direct or to be directed anymore than a tree or a
Men do not rest content with parrying the attacks of a superior, but often strike the first blow to prevent the attack being made. And we cannot fix the exact point at which our empire shall stop; we have reached a position in which we must not be content with retaining but must scheme to extend it, for, if we cease to rule others, we are in danger of being ruled ourselves. Nor can you look at inaction from the same point of view as others, unless you are prepared to change your habits and make them like theirs.Alcibiades Being Ruled Sayings By Alcibiades: Men do not rest content with parrying the attacks of a superior, but often strike
The world is a very, very fine place. It wasn't a mess. It didn't need to be conquered and ruled by man. In other words, the world doesn't belong to man - but it does need man to belong to it. Some creature had to be the first to go through this ... Some creature had to find the way, and if that happened, then ... there was no limit to what could happen here. In other words, man does have a place in the world, but it's not his place to rule ... Man's place is to be the first. Man's place is to be the first without being the last. Man's place is to figure out how it's possible to do that - and then to make room for all the rest who are capable of becoming what he's become. And maybe, when the time comes, it's man's place to be the teacher of all the rest who are capable of becoming what he's become. Not the only teacher, not the ultimate teacher. Maybe only the first teacher, the kindergarten teacher - but even that wouldn't be too shabby.Daniel Quinn Being Ruled Sayings By Daniel Quinn: The world is a very, very fine place. It wasn't a mess. It didn't need
With a [democratic] government anyone in principle can become a member of the ruling class or even the supreme power. The distinction between the rulers and the ruled as well as the class consciousness of the ruled become blurred. The illusion even arises that the distinction no longer exists: that with a public government no one is ruled by anyone, but everyone instead rules himself. Accordingly, public resistance against government power is systematically weakened. While exploitation and expropriation before might have appeared plainly oppressive and evil to the public, they seem much less so, mankind being what it is, once anyone may freely enter the ranks of those who are at the receiving end. Consequently, [exploitation will increase], whether openly in the form of higher taxes or discretely as increased governmental money "creation" (inflation) or legislative regulation.Hans-Hermann Hoppe Being Ruled Sayings By Hans-Hermann Hoppe: With a [democratic] government anyone in principle can become a member of the ruling class
Being both more systematically brutal than chimps and more empathetic than
