From Stewart H. Holbrook

Almost everyone who has read history in a more than casual manner
knows that when the great figure of God appears in a controversy,
the shooting cannot be far off.

From The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine

Those who rebel against the basic rules of the Universe sever
their own roots and ruin their true selves. Yin and Yang,
the two principles in nature, and the four seasons are the
beginning and the end of everything, and they are also
the cause of life and death. Those who disobey the laws of
the Universe will give rise to calamities and visitations,
while those who follow the laws of the Universe remain free
from dangerous illness, for they are the ones who have
obtained Tao, the Right Way.

From, Walter Percy

We Live In A Deranged Age, More Deranged Than Usual, Because In
Spite Of Great Scientific And Technological Advances, Mankind
Has Not The Faintest Idea Of Who He Is Or Just What He Is Doing.

From, John Adams

Remember Democracy Never Lasts Long. It Soon Wastes, Exhausts,
And Murders Itself. There Never Has Been A Democracy, Yet,
That Did Not Eventually Commit Suicide.

From, The Law - Frederic Bastiat

When Plunder Becomes A Way Of Life For A Group Of Men Living Together
Within A Society, They Create For Themselves, In the Course Of Time,
A Legal System That Authorizes Such Plunder And A Moral Code That
Glorifies It.

From the Lectures of Michio Kushi

History is an open secret to the one who understands the importance of
food and the way in which it transforms and creates man after its fashion.

Mans customs, societies, wars, the pattern of his evolution, the changes
in his thought, and the possibilities of his future, are impossible to
understand without this simple key.

Most Historians, after a lifetime of searching for cycles of repetition,
intellectual currents, and patterns of behavior, either conclude that
history is meaningless or develop an assertion of Blind Faith that
transcends their " Learned Knowledge ".

Neither Approach Is Necessary; Every Aspect of the Past, and Every Aspect
of the Present, Can Be Easily Understood By a Study of Mans Eating Habits.

Once This Is Understood, Man Will Be Able To Fashion The Future He
Wishes, And To Become Whatever He Wants To Be!!

The Words of Mr. Norman Cousins

Death Is Not The Greatest Loss In Life. The Greatest Loss Is What Dies

From Columbus and Other Cannibals - J.D. Forbes

" Civilization Does Not Mean Electric Lights, It Does Not Mean Producing

From the Tao Te Ching

Stop trying to control. Let go of fixed plans and concepts,
and the world will govern itself.
The more prohibitions you have, the less virtuous people will be.
The more weapons you have, the less secure people will be.
The more subsidies you have, the less self-reliant people will be.
Let go of the law, and people become honest.
Let go of economics, and people become prosperous.
Let go of religion, and people become serene.
Let go of all desire for the common good,
and the good becomes as common as grass.
