Quote Of The Week

"Silence? What can New York — noisy, roaring, rumbling, tumbling, bustling, story, turbulent New York — have to do with silence? Amid the universal clatter, the incessant din of business, the all swallowing vortex of the great money whirlpool — who has any, even distant, idea of the profound repose......of silence?"

Ecstasy

Cover mine eyes, O my Love!
Mine eyes that are weary of bliss
As of light that is poignant and strong
O silence my lips with a kiss,
My lips that are weary of song!
Shelter my soul, O my love!
My soul is bent low with the pain
And the burden of love, like the grace
Of a flower that is smitten with rain:
O shelter my soul from thy face!

From The Golden Threshold, 1916

A Different Song


"All too often arrogance accompanies strength, and we must never assume
that justice is on the side of the strong. The use of power must
always be accompanied by moral choice."

Theodore Bikel
Rest In Peace

Quote Of The Week

"The contemplation of beauty, whether it be a uniquely tinted sunset, a radiant face, or a work of art, makes us glance back unwittingly at our personal past and juxtapose ourselves and our inner being with the utterly unattainable beauty revealed to us."

Quote Of The Week

"To think that because those who wield power in society wield in the end that of government, therefore it is of no use to attempt to influence the constitution of the government by acting on opinion, is to forget that opinion is itself one of the greatest active social forces. One person with a belief is a social power equal to ninety-nine who have only interests."
