A bedrock principle of civilization it is, that human beings created in the image of God must be. Evidence all around us there is: democracy, rights, enterprise, progress in arts and sciences. God-like beings are we, not some crude matter.
Yet wholesale attack on this there was, by intellectuals from the dark side. Used modern science they did. Yes. Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, and Sigmund Freud the Republic betrayed. Human beings not moral and spiritual, said they, but animals and machines must be. A universe by impersonal forces ruled saw they. A materialistic conception of reality they held. Yes.
Today has the dark side every area of culture infested. Spawned a virulent strain of materialism it has. Yes. Coercive government programs created it has. Heaven on earth falsely promise they do. Mmmm.
Now your turn it is. Do, or do not. There is no try.
Archer, what, talk about, shall we, hmm? Dialogue all his own, this character we call Yoda seems to have!
Discuss the spirituality that we all so desperately seek, perhaps we can!
YodaSpeak ----------------------------------------------------------- Very different from intentions, convictions are. To do, convictions are something God gives us that we have. Things that we ought to do, intentions are, but with them we never follow through. . * * * * * * * * * *. â€œAchieved brilliance without wisdom, the world has, power without conscience. World of nuclear giants and ethical infants, ours is.â€--General Omar Bradley
The beginning of humanity, the feeling of commiseration is; the beginning of righteousness, the feeling of shame and dislike is; the beginning of propriety, the feeling of deference and compliance is; and the beginning of wisdom, the feeling of right and wrong is.
To you say â€œwhen all those near, man of talents and worth, 'this is,' you may therefore believe it not. When your great officers all say, man of talents and virtue, 'this is,' for that believe it neither may you. When all the people say, man of talents and virtue, 'this is,' then look into the case, and such, when you find that the man is, employ him.â€ . Yeesssssss.
The creator of beautiful things, the artist is. To reveal art and conceal the artist, art's aim is. He who can translate into another manner or a new material his impression of beautiful things, the critic is.
The highest as the lowest form of criticism, a mode of autobiography is. Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things corrupt are, and charming not. A fault, this is.
Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things, the cultivated are. For these, hope there is. They to whom beautiful things mean only beauty, elect are.
Such thing as a moral or an immoral book, there is not. Books well written are, or badly written. All, that is.
Phat: Discuss the spirituality that we all so desperately seek, perhaps we can!
A deep matter this is. Many questions have we, mmm? The existence of the Force--prove this can we? Life in galaxies far far away--exist does it? If Banthas from Tantans evolved, why Tantans extinct are not?
