That Man Can Destroy Life Is Just As Miraculous A Feat As That He Can Create It, For Life Is The Miracle, The Inexplicable. In The Act Of Destruction, Man Sets Himself Above Life He Transcends Himself As A Creature. Thus, The Ultimate Choice For A Man, Inasmuch As He Is Driven To Transcend Himself, Is To Create Or To Destroy, To Love Or To Hate.

The Real Questions Are The Ones That Obtrude Upon Your Consciousness Whether You Like It Or Not, The Ones That Make Your Mind Start Vibrating Like A Jackhammer, The Ones That You Come To Terms With Only To Discover That They Are Still There. The Real Questions Refuse To Be Placated. They Barge Into Your Life At The Times When It Seems Most Important For Them To Stay Away. They Are The Questions Asked Most Frequently And Answered Most Inadequately, The Ones That Reveal Their True Natures Slowly, Reluctantly, Most Often Against Your Will.

Everyone Values Things Differently. In Other Words, They Place Their Own Value On Everything That Affects Their Lives. Also From Moment To Moment They May Even Change Their Values. Such As A Person, Who Values Diamonds Above All Else, Might Be Willing To Trade A Gallon Of Diamonds For A Drink Of Water To Save His Life In A Desert. What This Means Is Value Is A Relative Thing Depending On A Need Or A Perceived Need. Yet, How Many People Will Argue And Even Violently Fight Over The Perceived Value Of Something Or Some Idea Only Later Have An Entirely Different View Point Or Value.
~ Sidney Madwed
I Should Wish To See A World In Which Education Aimed At Mental Freedom Rather Than Imprisoning The Minds Of The Young In A Rigid Armor Of Dogma Calculated To Protect Them Though Life Against The Shafts Of Impartial Evidence.
