in dwelling, live close to the ground.  in thinking, keep to the simple.  in conflict, be fair and generous.  in governing, don't try to control.  in work, do what you enjoy.  in family life, be completely present.

a thoughtful mind, when it sees a nation's flag, sees not the flag only, but the nation itself; and whatever may be its symbols, its insignia, he reads chiefly in the flag the government, the principles, the truths, the history which belongs to the nation that sets it forth.

our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone.  it has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone.  and it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.

and truly, what do we have left
but moments of this gazing, pulling
at each other, at ourselves,
the shells ground finer and finer
under our feet
making a kind of jagged sand..."

a point.

i was on acid and i looked at the trees and i realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to a point.  i thought, 'oh! everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it.'

no difference.

america has believed that in differentiation, not in uniformity, lies the path of progress.  it acted on this belief; it has advanced human happiness, and it has prospered.
