“The people of your culture cling to the specialty of man with fanatical tenacity. They are keen to perceive a great gulf between man and the rest of creation. This mythology of human superiority justifies them to do as they please with the world, just as the Aryan superiority of Hitler's mythology justified him doing as he pleased with Europe. But in the end, this mythology is not deeply satisfying. The Takers are a deeply lonely people. The world is enemy territory to them, and they live in it as an occupying army, alienated and isolated by their extraordinary expertise."

"You must teach your children that the earth beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandparents. To make them respect the earth, tell your children that the earth is rich in the lives of our relatives. Teach your children what we teach our children teach - - that the earth is our mother. What happens to the earth will happen to the children of the earth. When people spit on the earth, they spit on themselves.

We know this. The earth does not belong to man; Man belongs to the earth. We know this. All things are connected like the blood that unites a family. All things are connected to each other.

Everything that happens to the earth will happen to the children of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is but a thread in it. Everything he does on the internet, he does himself..."

“Here I can concentrate on the land of remembrance.

-- N. Scott Momaday (filmt Remembered Earth)

“The character of the landscape changes hour by hour, day by day, season by season. Nothing on earth can be taken for granted, you can feel how creation is happening before your eyes. You see things in the air that I can't see down in the flatlands. In the highlands, all objects weigh on you and you touch the earth with violence. From my house I can see the huge billowing clouds; they come closer to me and merge with my life.

-- N. Scott Momaday (filmt Remembered Earth)

“For once in our lives we must turn our thoughts to the land of remembrance. We have to surrender to a certain landscape in our experience, look at it from every conceivable angle, marvel at it, dwell in it. We must imagine that we can touch it with our hands in all seasons and listen to the sounds that are made about it. We have to imagine the creatures there and all the slightest movement of the wind. We must remember the splendor of noon and all the colors of the sky at sunrise and sunset.

-- N. Scott Momaday (filmt Remembered Earth)

“I'm interested in how we look at a certain landscape and appropriate it in our blood and brain. None of us lives completely separated from the earth, such isolation is unimaginable.

That was always so."

There is a certain stillness that can emanate from an inanimate object like a newly used chair or a piano with old dust on the keys or anything other response to a man's needs, for pleasure or work. That kind of silence can speak. His voice can be melancholic, but this is not always so, because the chair may have been vacated by a laughing child, or the last notes of the piano "They may have been loud and cheerful. Regardless of the mood or circumstances, the essence of their quality remain in the silence that follows. It is an echo without sound."

“The enjoyment of the finest natural landscapes in the country and the associated recreational opportunities is therefore in a very special way the monopoly of a very few, very wealthy people. a higher benefit is excluded. Given the nature of the matter, private parks can never be used by the masses of the people of any country, even by a considerable number of the wealthy, unless with the favor and dependence of a few.

Unless the government takes measures to keep them out of the reach of individuals, all the favorable places on the stage for the creation of minds and bodies will be closed to the masses of the people. For the same reason that river water must be protected from private appropriation and use for navigational purposes and from engineering, parts of the natural landscape can be duly protected and cared for by the state. Simply reserving them for the monopoly of individuals, obvious as it may seem, is not all that is required. It is necessary that they are open to the use of the body politic.”

“There is a crucial threshold that every cyclist must reach and cross in order to be successful. But I'm not talking about a lactate threshold or anything like that; This threshold is more difficult to define because it is actually a combination of physiological, psychological and environmental factors. At the same time, any rider who has crossed what I call the "competition threshold" knows what that is, even if they can't describe it.

When your fitness is below a certain point (compared to your competition) you are struggling to survive and have little hope that if you survive long enough you can place an all-or-nothing bet on victory. But once you exceed your competitive threshold, survival is no longer an issue and a whole new world of opportunity opens up. Instead of fighting for wheels to avoid falling, you fight for wheels based on strategy. Instead of looking at the squad as a haven, you're starting to see it as a tool to increase your chances of winning. You start acting like a hunter instead of a scavenger."

Whoever steals my bag steals rubbish; he is something, nothing; he was mine, he is his and he was the slave of thousands: but he who takes my good name from me takes from me what does not enrich it and really impoverishes me.

"To be or not to be: that is the question: Is it nobler in spirit to suffer the slings and arrows of fate, or to take up arms against a sea of ​​troubles and face them to the end? Die? : sleep; No longer; and for a dream to say we're finished The pain in the heart and the thousand natural shocks That the flesh is heritage is a cherished accomplishment. die, sleep; sleeping: maybe dreaming: yes, there is trouble; for in that sleep of death, which dream may come as we crawl out of this mortal shell, we must pause: there is the respect that makes a life's unhappiness so long; Love's cares despised, the law's delay, The insolence of office and the rejections That the patient merit of the unworthy receives, When he himself could make his silence with a naked stiletto of something after death, The unknown land, whose ancestry No traveler returns, confuses the will and makes us prefer to endure the bad Do we have to fly to others we don't know? So conscience makes cowards of us all; of thought and enterprise of great intensity and momentum, in this respect their currents stray and lose the name of action. - Smooth now! The beautiful Ophelia! Nymph, remember all my sins in your prayers."

This day is called Crispian's Feast: Whoever survives this day and returns home safely, Will stand on tiptoe when the day is called, And wake him at Crispian's name. Who shall live this day and see the old age, Annually at the vigil to celebrate his neighbors, And say, "Tomorrow is Saint Crispin": Then he will pull off his sleeve and show his scars. And say, "I had these wounds on Crispin's day." everything will be forgotten, But he will remember with advantage What he did that day: so our names. recently removed cups. This is the story the good man will teach his son; And Crispin Crispian will never die, From this day to the end of the world, But we'll be remembered in it; happy few, we are a group of brothers; For whoever sheds his blood with me today will be my brother; Abominable as it is, that day will ease their condition: and the now bedridden gentlemen of England will feel cursed that they are not here, and retain their cheap manhood so long as any one speaks to us on St. Crispin's day fought.

Comparing yourself to others can make you a vain orbiter because there will always be people who are superior or inferior to you. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. Be interested in your own career, however humble it may be; it is a real possession through the ages. Be careful in your business dealings because the world is full of deceit. That blinds what virtues there are; many people strive for high ideals; and everywhere life is full of heroism. Be yourself. Above all, don't feign affection. Do not be cynical about love, for above all dryness and lust ncanto is as constant as grass. Kindly keep the advice of the years and gracefully give up the things of youth. Nurture the spirit's power to protect you in sudden calamity. But don't worry about dark imaginations. Many fears arise from fatigue and loneliness. Besides healthy discipline, be kind to yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; You have the right to be here. And whether you realize it or not, the universe is undoubtedly unfolding as it should. Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive of Him and whatever your endeavors and aspirations, in life's noisy confusion, keep peace with your soul.

It bulges out at the center, is sixteen thousand light-years thick, but outside of us it's only three thousand light-years wide. years away from the galactic center. We rotate every two hundred million years, and our galaxy is just one of millions and billions in this amazingly expanding universe.

    The universe itself is expanding and expanding. It can zoom in all directions. As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know, twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.

These smart guys study all the facts and see the war as something big, one of the greatest events in the legend of mankind, something general involving many people. I see it as one big thing too, it's just that I break it down into small chunks man by man and see it as one big monstrous thing for every man involved. I see war, in one way or another, as death for men dressed as soldiers, and all the men who survived war, myself included, I see as men who died with their brothers, dressed as soldiers. There is no such thing as a soldier. I see death as a private event, the destruction of the universe in a person's brain and senses, and I cannot view a person's death as a factor in the success or failure of a campaign.

    And what shoulder and what art could twist the tendons of your heart? And when your heart started beating, what terrible hand? And what fearsome feet?

    What's the hammer? What current, what oven was your brain in? What is an anvil? What fear seizes? Will its deadly terrors close?

    When the stars threw their spears and watered the sky with their tears, did he smile when he saw his work? He who made the lamb made you?

This hidden quasi-Jungian personality came to light when Agatha Christie searched for his long-cherished soulmate, a woman with whom he spent only a few precious hours...the protracted search ended Saturday night incompletely and in total failure. Yet even in the face of certain defeat, the brave Trager secretly held onto the belief that life isn't just a series of accidents or senseless coincidences, culminating in an exquisite and sublime plan for the question of the loss of his dear friend Dean Kansky , Pulitzer Prize-winning author and editor-in-chief of The New York Times e s, described Jonathan as a changed man in the last days of his life. gs were clearer to him,” Kansky noted. Ultimately, Jonathan concluded that if we are to live our lives in harmony with the universe, we must all have a strong belief in what the ancients called fatum, what we call today del goal."

    "The gods played three tricks on the Takers," he began, "first of all, they didn't put the world where the Takers thought it belonged, in the center of the universe. They really hated hearing that, but from Human Trapped in the Wild, they could still believe he was the central character in the creation drama. The second trick of the gods was worse. Since man was the culmination of creation, the creature for which all else was made, they should have had the decency to produce him in a manner befitting his dignity and importance in a separate and special act of reproduction. Instead, they evolved it from ordinary mucus, just like ticks and liverworms. I "really" hated hearing that, but they're starting to adapt. Though man evolved from ordinary slime, it is still his divine destiny to rule the world and perhaps even the universe itself.” d Euses was the worst of all. Although the takers do not yet know it, the gods have not spared the people of Of the law that governs the life of worms, ticks, shrimp, rabbits, mussels, deer, lions and jellyfish, they have not freed you from this law any more than from the law of gravity. , and this will be the deadliest blow of all to takers. For the other dirty tricks of the gods, they might adapt. No customization is possible for this one.”

    A 3/4 year old boy asked "What is the meaning of life?" I think people ask this question with the assumption that "meaning" is something you can look for and say, "I found it." That's the meaning I was looking for.” OK? And you don't think about the possibility that maybe the meaning of life is something you create. You do for yourself and for others. So when I think about the meaning of life, I ask myself: did I learn something today that I didn't learn? do you know yesterday to get a little closer to knowing everything that can be known in the universe. Just a little closer. As far as knowledge goes, I'm a little closer. If I live a day and don't know a little bit more than I did the day before, I think I've wasted that day... Learning is getting closer to nature, and learning how things work gives you the power to influencing events. It gives you the power to help those in need. trajectory. So when I think about the meaning of life, it's not an eternal question without an answer for me. For me, every day is within my grasp."

Will we acquire the means of effective resistance, lying on our backs embracing the illusory spirit of hope until our enemies have bound us hand and foot? not weak, if we can send against us, properly employing the means which the god of nature has placed at our disposal. Besides, sir, we will not fight our battles alone. There is a righteous God who rules the fate of nations and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. Combat, sir, is not only for the strong; it's for the alert, the active, the brave. Also, sir, we don't have elections. If we were bad enough to want to, it's too late to retire now. There is no retreat, but submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Its roar can be heard across the Boston prairies! War is inevitable and let it come! I repeat, sir, come on.

    It is in vain, sir, to mitigate the matter. The gentlemen may cry peace, peace, but there is no peace. The war has really begun! The next storm to blow from the north will bring the sound of rumbling cannons to our ears! Our brothers are already in the field! Why are we idle here? What do you want? what would they have Is life so precious, or peace so sweet, that it is bought at the price of chains and bondage? Forbidden, Almighty God! I don't know what path the others will take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

    By the time lobsters grow to about a pound, they instinctively know they're in for a crisis. They lived in a hard shell that protected them but stunted their growth. To mature, lobsters must shed their old shell and form a new one, a process that takes about two days. It wasn't long ago, but during that time they are naked and vulnerable. Other deep dwellers can eat the lobster naked. Or the waves can crash against a rock and damage it. However, there is no alternative. The lobster must endure risks for two days to form a new shell and mature. People often have to do this too.

    One day, while waiting at the airport for the plane that would bring my family back from vacation, I reflected on the terrible risk that love involves. If the plane had crashed, most of me would have crashed with it, and yet there is no way to love without risk... Those who cannot love are those who are afraid or unable to do so to take associated risks. They want to stay safe and protected: they are afraid that their love will be rejected, betrayed or unrequited. However, unless we are willing to take these risks and accept the fact that love exposes us to disappointment or disaster, we cannot escape the web of our own selfishness.

    Passion makes us the most curious, the most hungry, the most hated for missing something in life. It's the most desperate wish we have to shout into the wells of our lives. It is all we seek for ourselves, what we study when there are no tests, what we create though no one can see. It makes us forget that the sun rises and sets, that we have bodily functions and personal relationships that need a little attention. It's what we would do if we didn't worry about the consequences, about money, about making others happy but ourselves. It's anything we might be tempted to sell our souls for dedicating ourselves a few hundred more years to whatever fills us with the feeling poet Anne Sexton was referring to when she said, "When I write, I know I'm doing what I do for." was born."

Separated from universal nature and living by intricate artifices, civilized man examines the creature through the mirror of his knowledge, seeing one feather magnified and the whole picture distorted. its incompleteness, through its tragic fate, to have taken shape deep below us. And then we made mistakes, and lots of mistakes. For the animal is not measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move ready and complete, endowed with senses we have lost or never attained, and living on voices we will never hear.

At other times someone stood up and talked to us about our duties to each other and to Usen [Apache God]. Our services were brief.

    At the dog show held at our local hospital party, there were many beautiful dogs with equally beautiful owners. But my attention was caught by a small stray dog ​​and his owner, a boy of about 11 years old. For almost an hour, the boy took care of his pet and gently hugged it. When called, the boy tenderly took the dog's head in his hands and looked at it with all the love a child can show. "Now you shouldn't be sad if you don't win an award," he said, "you know, they don't know you as well as I do."

    "If you can keep your head when everyone around you is going insane and blaming you; being betrayed, not dealing lies or being hated, not giving in to hate and yet not looking too good, or speaking too wisely;

    If you can dream and can't make dreams your master; You've spoken, twisted of villains to make a fool's trap, or looked at the things you gave your life for, broken, and stooped and built them with worn-out tools;

    If you can make a lot of all your winnings And gamble on a tug of war And lose and start all over again And never say a word about your loss: If you can force your heart and nerves and tendons to be a long time coming after they have gone, and then wait when there is nothing in you but the will telling them: 'Wait!'

    If you can talk to crowds and keep your virtue, Or walk with kings - without losing touch, If neither enemies nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count on you, but none too much: If you are the unforgiving Minute Sixty seconds, Yours is the earth and all that is on it, And besides you will be human, my son!

    We are now engaged in a major civil war, testing whether this nation, or any nation so conceived and committed, can last. We are on a great battlefield of this war. We have come to dedicate part of this field as the final resting place for those who gave their lives here so that this nation might live. It is entirely appropriate and right that we do so.

    But in a broader sense we cannot consecrate this ground, we cannot consecrate it, we cannot sanctify it. The brave men, living and dead, who have fought here have dedicated it far beyond our feeble power to add or subtract. The world will hardly notice and will not long remember what we said here, but they will never be able to forget what they did here. It is up to us, the living, to devote ourselves here to the unfinished work that those who fought here have so nobly carried on. Rather, it is for us to devote ourselves here to the great task before us: that of receiving from these honorable dead a greater devotion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that we here vehemently resolve that these dead must not have died in vain, may this nation have a new birth of liberty under God, and may the government of the people, by the people, for the people, not perish from the face of the earth."

    I am a raindrop... and I fell, crystallized. A gray winter morning in the yesterday of your life... it was cold... very cold... but the year was new and you had plans... and dreams of warm places... you drew your designs in the frost... .and frozen them in your memory...it was January...so long ago.

    ...and sparkled on the edge of an icicle as you drove up the hill...and as you ran down the long icy road I stuck little snow needles up your nose...and dripped off your shoe covers when you were on them Door that night... it was February and you were cold and tired... and hungry.

    ...and you ran me over one afternoon while I was running slowly in front of your window. The wind was strong and your kite was ready... but the sun had set and I was there... making you wait until tomorrow... it was March and you were impatient.

    ...and I followed you both into the forest on a grey-green day...but when I touched her face you ran away to hide from me...I watched from a leaf as you kiss her...softly. ...and she kissed back...it was April...and you were in love...for the first time.

    ...and I mingled with your tears when you said goodbye to your father...and when the prayer was said...and your song was sung...I wanted to tell you that crying is good. .. how can everyone knows happiness until he felt sadness... it was May... and the flowers bloomed again.

    ...and I was dew glistening on the grass as the sun rose on a summer morning...and you had a day to remember...it was June and all was well in your world.. .and the boy I just brought it to you...

    ...and I stayed one night on a cloud and let you lie on your back and look at the stars...it was July, the air was clear and you finally realized how much fun it is...to be alive to be.

    I'm just a raindrop...but I created the snow on the mountains you've scaled...I created the rainbows you've seen...I created the rivers you've crossed and Filled the oceans you sailed... I was August and you and I we were somewhere... doing our thing.

    ...and I ran like a stream in a meadow as you walked beside me on a golden sunny day...I heard you telling your son the mysteries of nature and the realities of life...it was September. .. and the flow of time began to flow a little faster...

    ... and as it danced with the leaves in its final mad whirlwind ... you gathered ... family and friends ... to honor your son ... and your bride ... it was party time ... . .. and a farewell toast to the autumn splendor. It was October and winter would soon be here.

    ...and if my sisters clung to the thin, bare branches of the trees outside your window...you would sit by the fire and stare at the faded images...and the tiny fragments of life saved for the day . .. It was November... and the days were getting shorter...

    I am a raindrop...and I slowly fell one night...turned into snow...covered the earth with a soft white blanket...and when you saw the lights that shone on the green branches, I heard your heartbeat Say you were happy... because I knew that if one light went out, the others would stay on... it was December... and you were tired...

    Count the moments that bore you in a day and waste the hours in spontaneous ways.

    Tired of being out in the sun, stay home to watch the rain. You are young and life is long and today is the time to kill. And then one day you find out that ten years have passed. Nobody told you when to run, you missed the starting gun.

    So you run and run to catch the sun but it goes down. Run to get back at you. The sun is relatively the same, but you're older, short of breath, and a day closer to death.

    Every year is getting shorter, it seems that there is never time. Plans that go nowhere, or half a page of scribbled lines Silence and despair is the English way. Time's up, music's over, Thought I had something else to say.

    -- Pink Floyd

    She walks in beauty, like the night of cloudless climate and starry sky;

    And on that cheek and that forehead, so soft, so calm yet eloquent, the smile that triumphs, the tones that shine but speak of days spent in kindness, a spirit at peace with all below , a heart whose love is innocent!

    --Lord Byron


    Since the night that covers me, black as the abyss from pole to pole, I thank the gods that exist for my invincible soul.

    In the constraints of circumstances, I neither flinched nor cried out aloud. My head is bloody under the blows of chance, but held high.

    Beyond this place of anger and tears only the terror of the shadow appears, and even the menace of the years finds me and will find me without fear.

    No matter how narrow the gate, how punishing the scroll, I am the master of my destiny: I am the captain of my soul.

    - William Ernest Henley

    ... Come on my friends, 'It's not too late to seek a newer world. my goal is to sail beyond the sunset and the baths of all the western stars until I die. you knew. Though much is taken, much remains; and though we are not now the power that moved the earth and heaven of old, what we are, we are; An even temper of heroic hearts, weakened by time and fate, but strong in will to fight, seek, find and not give up.


    -- Closing lines of the poem "Ulysses" by Alfred Lord Tennyson


    What law is a book rests on top of a shelf and does not move until a student accidentally knocks it off? ›

    Newton's first law states that an object will remain at rest or move at a constant speed in a straight line unless it is acted on by an unbalanced force. According to Newton's first law, an unbalanced force is needed to move the book on your desk. You could supply the force by pushing the book.

    What is an example of third law of motion? ›

    Consider a swimmer pushing off the side of a pool. They push against the wall of the pool with their feet and accelerate in the direction opposite to that of their push. This occurs because the wall exerts an equal and opposite force on the swimmer.

    Which of the following Newton's laws of motion describes a book at rest or a book sliding across a surface at a constant velocity has net force equal to zero? ›

    Newton's first law: An object at rest remains at rest, or if in motion, remains in motion at a constant velocity unless acted on by a net external force.

    Is standing an example of Newton's third law? ›

    Newton's third law states that every action has an equal and oposite reaction. You may not think this, but when you're standing ont he floor, you are excerting a force against the floor: your weight, caused by gravity, is pulling you down.

    What Newton's law is book sitting on a table? ›

    DESCRIPTION: A set of mathematics problems dealing with Newton's Laws of Motion. The book lying on the table is exerting a downward force on the table, while the table is exerting an upward reaction force on the book. Because the forces are equal and opposite, the book remains at rest.

    Is sitting in a chair Newton's third law? ›

    The force of gravity pulling you down against your chair is balanced by the force of the chair pushing up against you. The forces acting on you as you sit in your chair are just one example of Newton's third law, which states that for every action force there is an equal and opposite reaction force.

    What are 5 examples of inertia? ›

    Example of Inertia.
    • Dust coming out of mat when beaten.
    • Falling forward in transport when sudden breaks are applied.
    • Leaves get detached from the tree when shaken hardly.
    • Due to inertia, artificial satellites keep moving in a circular motion.

    What are the 5 examples of first law of motion? ›

    Here are some examples:
    • One's body movement to the side when a car makes a sharp turn.
    • Tightening of seat belts in a car when it stops quickly.
    • A ball rolling down a hill will continue to roll unless friction or another force stops it.
    • If pulled quickly, a tablecloth can be removed from underneath of dishes.

    What are 5 examples of Newton's second law? ›

    The Most Common Applications of Newton's Second Law of Motion
    • 1· Try to move an object.
    • 2· Pushing a car and a truck.
    • 3· Racing Cars.
    • 4· Rocket launch.
    • 5· Kick the ball.
    • 6· Car crash.
    • 7· Two people walking.
    • 8· Object thrown from a height.

    What is Newton's 2nd law of motion statement? ›

    State Newton's second law of motion

    Newton's second law of motion states that “Force is equal to the rate of change of momentum. For a constant mass, force equals mass times acceleration.

    What are Newton's 1st 2nd 3rd and 4th laws of motion? ›

    In the first law, we understand that an object will not change its motion unless a force acts on it. The second law states that the force on an object is equal to its mass times its acceleration. And finally, the third law states that there is an equal and opposite reaction for every action.

    How does Newton's 3rd law of motion work? ›

    Whenever one object exerts a force on a second object, the second object exerts an equal and opposite force on the first. His third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction.

    What is an example of law of inertia? ›

    Examples of Law of Inertia in Everyday Life (Inertia of Motion) When the bus stops suddenly, people fall forward. When the driver of a bus brakes suddenly, the lower part of the body comes to rest as the bus comes to rest but the upper part of the body continues to move forward due to inertia of motion.

    What are examples of third law of motion action and reaction? ›

    According to Newton's third law of motion, forces always act in equal but opposite pairs. Another way of saying this is for every action, there is an equal but opposite reaction. This means that when you push on a wall, the wall pushes back on you with a force equal in strength to the force you exerted.

    What is the application of Newton's 1st 2nd 3rd law in real life? ›

    When you jump, your feet apply force to the ground, and the earth applies an equal and opposite reaction force that pushes you into the air.

    What is Newton's first law 2nd law 3rd law? ›

    In the first law, an object will not change its motion unless a force acts on it. In the second law, the force on an object is equal to its mass times its acceleration. In the third law, when two objects interact, they apply forces to each other of equal magnitude and opposite direction.

    What is Newton's third law the law of? ›

    Newton's Third Law: Action & Reaction

    His third law states that for every action (force) in nature there is an equal and opposite reaction. If object A exerts a force on object B, object B also exerts an equal and opposite force on object A. In other words, forces result from interactions.

    What law is an object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force? ›

    Newton's First Law. Again, the first law of motion states that an object at rest will remain at rest, and an object that is moving at a constant velocity will continue moving at a constant velocity unless acted upon by unbalanced force.

    What force is acting down on a book laying at rest not moving on a table? ›

    Since the book is at rest and not moving on the surface of the table hence, there is the static frictional force between the book and the surface of the table keeping the book at its position until some force greater than this static frictional force is applied on it.
