discussions along the following
lines:<P> My gaze on Beatrice, hers on Heaven,
In less time than an arrow strikes the mark,
Flies through the air, loosed from its catch, I found
myself in some place where a wondrous thing.
Absorbed all of my mind, and then my lady,
From whom I could not keep my thirst to know,
turned toward me as joyful as her beauty:
Direct your mind and gratitude, she said,
To God, who raised us up to His first star.
-Dante, The Divine Comedy: Paradise
He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his
hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his
head and his heart is an artist.
St Fancis of Assisi
The most terrifying words in the English langauge are: I\'m from the
government and I\'m here to help.
Government always finds a need for whatever money it gets.
