    <TABLE width="100%" border=0>"There is one Divine Mind that keeps the universe in order and one providence that governs it. The names given to this Supreme God differ; he is worshipped in different ways in different religions, the religious symbols used in them vary."

    Roman historian
    "Children, you must remember something. A man without ambition is dead. A man with ambition but no love is dead. A man with ambition and love for his blessings here on earth is ever so alive."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Pearl Bailey
    "A writer needs loneliness, and he gets his share of it. He needs love, and he gets shared and also unshared love. He needs friendship. In fact, he needs the universe. To be a writer is, in a sense, to be a day-dreamer - to be living a kind of double life."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Jorge Luis Borges
    "Love thy neighbor as yourself, but choose your neighborhood."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Louise Beal

    Beyond Good and Evil
    "The man who gets the most satisfactory results is not always the man with the most brilliant single mind, but rather the man who can best coordinate the brains and talents of his associates."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Sir William Alton Jones
    "Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children... Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Dwight D. Eisenhower,
    From "The Chance for Peace" address, delivered before the American Society of Newspaper Editors, April 16, 1953.
    "One of the most obvious results of having a baby around the house is to turn two good people into complete idiots who probably wouldn't have been much worse than mere imbeciles without it."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Georges Courteline,
    La Philosophie de Georges Courteline
    "At different stages in our lives, the signs of love may vary: dependence, attraction, contentment, worry, loyalty, grief, but at heart the source is always the same. Human beings have the rare capacity to connect with each other, against all odds."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Michael Dorris
    "Some people lose all respect for the lion unless he devours them instantly. There is no pleasing some people."
    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Will Cuppy
    "Nine requisites for contented living:
    Health enough to make work a pleasure.
    Wealth enough to support your needs.
    Strength to battle with difficulties and overcome them.
    Grace enough to confess your sins and forsake them.
    Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished.
    Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor.
    Love enough to move you to be useful and helpful to others.
    Faith enough to make real the things of God.
    Hope enough to remove all anxious fears concerning the future."

    <TR align=right><TD align=right>Johann von Goethe
