"I Sling Words As I Go Along."



And now, a word from Louisa May Alcott……

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.”

Louisa May Alcott, author
November 29, 1832 – March 6, 1888

And now, a word from Joseph Campbell…….

“Apocalypse does not point to a fiery Armageddon but to the fact that our ignorance and our complacency are coming to an end. Our divided, schizophrenic worldview, with no mythology adequate to coordinate our conscious and unconscious — that is what is coming to an end. The exclusivism of there being only one way in which we can be saved, the idea that there is a single religious group that is in sole possession of the truth — that is the world as we know it that must pass away. What is the kingdom? It lies in our realization of the ubiquity of the divine presence in our neighbors, in our enemies, in all of us.”

Joseph Campbell, author
The Hero with A Thousand Faces, etc.
March 26, 1904 – October 30, 1987

And now, a word from John Lennon………

“If someone thinks that Love and Peace is a cliche left behind in the Sixties, that’s his problem. Love and Peace are eternal.”

John Lennon, musician

And now, a word from Gene Roddenberry….

“‘Star Trek’ says that it has not all happened, it has not all been discovered, that tomorrow can be as challenging and adventurous as any time man has ever lived.”

Gene Roddenberry, producer
