Charles Fort: Quote for December 26, 2012

The fittest survive.
What is meant by the fittest?
Not the strongest; not the cleverest —
Weakness and stupidity everywhere survive.
There is no way of determining fitness except in that a thing does survive.
'Fitness,' then, is only another name for 'survival.'
from: Book of the Damned (Book 1932)

Buckminster Fuller: Quote for December 22, 2012

When I was born, humanity was 95 per cent illiterate. Since I’ve been born, the population has doubled and that total population is now 65 per cent literate. That’s a gain of 130-fold of the literacy. When humanity is primarily illiterate, it needs leaders to understand and get the information and deal with it. When we are at the point where the majority of humans them-selves are literate, able to get the information, we’re in an entirely new relationship to Universe. We are at the point where the integrity of the individual counts and not what the political leadership or the religious leadership says to do.

Anne Frank: Quote for December 21, 2012

That's the difficulty in these times: ideals, dreams, and cherished hopes rise within us, only to meet the horrible truth and be shattered. It's really a wonder that I haven't dropped all my ideals because they seem so absurd and impossible to carry out. Yet, I keep them, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.
from: Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl (Book 1953)

John Trudell: Quote for December 20, 2012

The great lie is that it is civilization. It’s not civilized. It has been literally the most blood thirsty brutalizing system ever imposed upon this planet. That is not civilization. That’s the great lie, is that it represents civilization.

Richard Hofstadter: Quote for December 19, 2012

It is ironic that the United States should have been founded by intellectuals, for throughout most of our political history, the intellectual has been for the most part either an outsider, a servant or a scapegoat.

Soren Kierkegaard: Quote for December 18, 2012

Kurt Vonnegut: Quote for December 17, 2012

We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.

Madeleine L'Engle: Quote for December 16, 2012

Because to take away a man's freedom of choice, even his freedom to make the wrong choice, is to manipulate him as though he were a puppet and not a person.

Gary Cooper: Quote for December 15, 2012

Nan Collins, my manager, came from Gary, Indiana and suggested I adopt that name. She felt it was more exciting than Frank. I figured I`d give it a try. Good thing she didn't come from Poughkeepsie.

Bette Davis: Quote for December 14, 2012

A sure way to lose happiness, I found, is to want it at the expense of everything else.

Dennis Wheatley: Quote for December 13, 2012

Whether or not Hitler and Mussolini themselves are great masters of Black Magic, nobody can possibly contest that it is through such ambitious and unscrupulous men, German, Italian and Japanese, that the Powers of Darkness are working and in recent years have acquired such a terrifying increase of strength upon our earth.
The New World Order which they wish to bring about is but another name for Hell. If through them Evil prevailed, every man and woman of every race and colour would finally be enslaved, from the cradle to the grave. They would be brought up to worship might instead of right and would be taught to condone, or even praise, murder, torture and the suppression of all liberty as 'necessary' to the welfare of 'the State'.
from: Strange Conflict( (Book 1941)
In modern times new masters wish to bring about a New World Order. It still can be called Hell!

Charles Lindbergh: Quote for December 12, 2012

What kind of man would live where there is no daring? I don't believe in taking foolish chances but nothing can be accomplished without taking any chance at all.

J. Paul Getty: Quote for December 11, 2012

The individual who wants to reach the top in business must appreciate the might of the force of habit and must understand that practices are what create habits. He must be quick to break those habits that can break him and hasten to adopt those practices that will become the habits that help him achieve the success he desires.

G. K. Chesteron: Quote for December 10, 2012
