Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis. --Ralph Waldo Emerson My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior
spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive
with our frail and feeble mind. --Albert Einstein
Welfare\'s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for
its own existence.
As fast as thou shalt wane, so fast thou grow\'st,
In one of thine, from that which thou departest;
And that fresh blood which youngly thou bestow\'st,
Thou mayst call thine when thou from youth convertest,
Herein lives wisdom, beauty, and increase;
Without this folly, age, and cold decay:
If all were minded so, the times should cease
And threescore year would make the world away.
Let those whom nature hath not made for store,
Harsh, featureless, and rude, barrenly perish:
Look, whom she best endow\'d, she gave thee more;
Which bounteous gift thou shouldst in bounty cherish:
She carv\'d thee for her seal, and meant thereby,
Thou shouldst print more, not let that copy die.
