I have always believed that Jesus meant by the Kingdom of God the small group scattered all through time of intellectually and ethically valuable people.

Albert Einstein
Righteousness is the religion of the Kingdom of Heaven & even the property of God himself towards man. Righteousness & Love are inseparable for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight
'Till by turning, turning we come round right.

Cleanup list

I have taken on a new commitment at Wikiquote:WikiProject Weekly Cleanup to try to do at least one cleanup of tagged pages a week; this is just a small listing of some I will target for cleanup and other work in coming weeks.
Done.

In a three-minute stretch between commercials, or in seven hundred words, it is impossible to present unfamiliar thoughts or surprising conclusions with the argument and evidence required to afford them credibility. Regurgitation of welcome pieties faces no such problem.

The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country. He will ask rather "What can I and my compatriots do through government" to help us discharge our individual responsibilities, to achieve our several goals and purposes, and above all, to protect our freedom? And he will accompany this question with another: How can we keep the government we create from becoming a Frankenstein that will destroy the very freedom we establish it to protect? Freedom is a rare and delicate plant. Our minds tell us, and history confirms, that the great threat to freedom is the concentration of power. Government is necessary to preserve our freedom, it is an instrument through which we can exercise our freedom; yet by concentrating power in political hands, it is also a threat to freedom. Even though the men who wield this power initially be of good will and even though they be not corrupted by the power they exercise, the power will both attract and form men of a different stamp.

I'm going to work hard not to have any wrong thoughts!
~ A child in The Children's Story ~
by
~ James Clavell ~
I ever seek to increase proper forms of respect for human individuals and legitimate forms of human society and social interactions. I do not seek to promote any of the worst and foulest forms of human confusion, ignorance and fear, nor promote any admiration for corruptions of the ideals of humanity which can come about through many forms of ignorance and confusion, such as those involved in various mild and minor or major and murderous forms of tyranny or terrorism.
I promote a forgiveness of those who fall into many forms of error, but I also assert that errors, especially those that ignore the principles of Justice and Liberty should be opposed, and opposed regularly and vigorously. I am well aware that those with very limited and constrained forms of imagination, intelligence and ideas OFTEN wish to find ways to constrain or control the ideas of others, and to suppress, punish and destroy any indications of such ideas or truths as might go beyond the bounds which their fragile or fearful little minds find comfortable to face, usually without being too obvious about it, and with exaggerating focus on such regulations and policies "for the good" of everyone they choose to find worthy of consideration — which is usually a VERY limited circle, and such as can serve their own aims — often with an extreme ignorance, denial or dismissal of such principles upon which any truly legitimate "policies" must be founded. Even as a young child I recognized that so-called social interactions that depended upon various forms of dishonesty were not truly "social" at all — but actually, at best, "semi-social" and more often truly "anti-social", no matter what kindly generous appearances people might wish to garnish their own bigotries and extreme prejudices with.
I am genuinely not prone to be harsh to those not being deliberately harsh to others — and yet I am certainly not always prone to be gentle with those I perceive being needlessly harsh, intolerant or cruel to anyone. Even though I might forgive their ignorance and confusion, I will not always choose to pardon them from confrontations with aspects or consequences of their errors, that they might prefer not to face. I am a very complex person — and I respect others as such too — and I know that any mandated erasures or ignoring of all differences that might exist is certainly NOT a genuinely healthy answer to the problems of various forms of social and anti-social contentions. In this project and elsewhere I intend to help make many ideas of those I consider the most wise and charitable of human beings far better known and adequately understood by many — and indicate applicabilities which I believe can be helpful. This year has just begun, but I have many ideas of how to occupy my time in coming months, and am always prepared to adapt and grow with new circumstances, as any healthy individual usually is, and any healthy human endeavors always are. So it goes... ~ Kalki·· 12:19, 22 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

some images deleted from Baruch Spinoza

some of the images deleted from Baruch Spinoza, removed some months ago, some of which I might eventually restore, but have many other things to attend to today and in coming weeks. ~ Kalki·· 19:04, 13 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

Most of these which had been here have now been restored to the Spinoza page or to Ethics (book), which had been an overly large portion of the page, and had been moved some time after the images were removed. Some I simply replaced with other available images. Of the 2 images I have retained here, only the one with the Borges quote has not been restored, because there is currently not enough room for it in its section, and I believe other images currently there are generally preferable. ~ Kalki·· 11:42, 30 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

Actually there is sufficient room there, except in extremely wide page widths — but I will probably wait for more text in that section before possibly restoring it, or replacing it with another. ~ Kalki·· 11:46, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
The mightiest love was granted him
Love that does not expect to be loved. ~ Jorge Luis Borges
How much do I love that noble man
More than I could tell with words
I fear though he'll remain alone
With a holy halo of his own. ~ Albert Einstein


some images deleted from Sri Chinmoy

These were removed from the Sri Chinmoy page, and knowing he apparently had some objections to gay lifestyles, I can agree to keep them removed, though I believe they illustrate some aspects of his statements well. I will seek some other less controversial images to use with the captions ~ Kalki·· 12:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

1896 Alfred-Pierre Agache - The Sword.jpg  
Circle-A red.svg

We designate by the term "State" institutions that embody absolutism in its extreme form and institutions that temper it with more or less liberality. We apply the word alike to institutions that do nothing but aggress and to institutions that, besides aggressing, to some extent protect and defend. But which is the State's essential function, aggression or defence, few seem to know or care.

No deeply-rooted tendency was ever extirpated by adverse argument. Not having originally been founded on argument, it cannot be destroyed by logic.

Very early in my life, by the time I was 5 or 6, the Essays of Michel de Montaigne and various thoughts upon them had inspired me, and even then I had in mind ideas of creating short essays largely built around significant quotes and their various interpretations, and I will probably begin filling many of the pages listed here with quotes about various ideas and concepts, and a few relevant comments about them within a few weeks. "We've only just begun…" ;)
