Preface
Know yourself!
God created Man in his own image,
Water is the element and this is the origin....
War is the father of all things.
He didn't' want to seem best,but to be so.
Seeing the high Gods by her beauty's lure
There is only one good, knowledge, and one evil, ignorance.
...until political greatness and wisdom meet in one,
It follows that the state belongs to the class of objects
One's country is wherever one does well.
...that devil, envy did all the mischief,which the bad bear unto the good,
But if one should guide his life by true principles,
Give me chastity and continence, but not just now.
Ah God! Had I but studied in the days of my foolish youth.
If all evil were prevented, much good would be
Man was created by nature in such a way that reason might dominate the senses
...how we live is so far removed from how we ought to live,
...a kingdom is best entrusted to someone who is better endowed than the rest
In a state of nature we have....no arts, no letters, no society,
I think, therefore I am.
The only possible fence against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.
He whose honor depends on the opinion of the mob
Legislation considers man as he is in order to turn him to good uses in human society. Out of
to "live in Ease, Without great Vices, is a vain
It is fortunate for men to be in a situation in which,
That action is best, which procures the greatest happiness
All is for the best in the best of possible worlds.
How small - of all that human hearts endure - that part which laws or kings can cause or cure.
Man is born free, and everywhere he is in fetters.
It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker, that we expect our dinner,
Out of timber so crooked as that from which man is made nothing entirely straight can be built.
I offer you "...this picture of the human species, liberated from all chains, freed from the empire
...the age of chivalry is gone. -That of sophisters, economists, and calculators, has succeeded;
And yet all grandeur, all power, all subordination rests on the executioner;
The principal object of the present essay is to examine the effects of one great cause.
But even as we contemplate history as this butcher-block,
One has attributed to history the task, to judge the past, and to instruct the present to the benefi
Human societies are at the same time organisms and mechanisms.
It is better to be a human being dissatisfied than a pig satisfied;
Nothing is easier than to admit in words the truth of the universal struggle for life,
...the theory of the Communists may be summed up in a single sentence:Abolition of private property
Life is essentially appropriation, injury, overpowering of the weaker, suppression, hardness
Society is a reality sui generis; it has its own characteristics which one does not find,
The characteristic of the moment is that the mediocre mind,
...behold the bustling crowds that work and trade in order to make a living..."
And it's not clear to me Who is a beast now, who is a man.
Whereof one cannot speak,thereof one must be silent.
The Human Genome Project "is the grail of human genetics... the ultimate answer to the commandment,
History is a violent elimination game, minimizing A/P.
If there is one of you who has not sinned, let him be the first to throw a stone at her.
In short, there are three things that last, faith, hope and love;

Isn't it nice to know that you have been created in the image of God? God is powerful. He rules the world. Wouldn't you like to rule, too, at least a bit more than you do right now? Who rules, for instance, at home? How nice, if at least your family treated you like a God! In the genetic garden of mankind, one group of people have been intoxicated by this idea. It is a group of people who always want to fight, compete and win. They must be driven by a very specific combination of "juices", of genes and proteins. Most likely testosterone, the male sex hormone, and adrenaline, the fighting spirit juice, are prominent in the mixture. I have therefore named them "adrenalinomaniacs". Or, sometimes, thinking of a couple of U.S. presidents, as "testosteronomaniacs". That name is not intended only as ridicule. These type of people have been around everywhere and in all ages. We can therefore be sure that in the evolutionary struggle they have been selected because it has been useful. It has been good for survival, for themselves, their families and for the groups to which they belong.In fact,
another name for them is "hero", people like Achilles in old Greece, or Maximilian Kolbe in modern Europe. They represent individuals who have taken great risks and bravely shown a formidable courage in front of certain death. A people, like the Jews of the Egyptian exodus, who have been saved by their adrenalinomaniac heroes, is prone to hero-worship. They look upon their leaders as "images of God". The leaders surely don't mind. The followers then often turn into fanatic fundamentalists, eager to kill their enemies, children of Satan, the Devil. The trouble is that this cannot continue. In the modern world, with atomic, biological and chemical weapons potent enough to annihilate the human species, we must restrain both heroes and hero-worship. Why? Two modern adrenalinomaniacs were called Stalin and Hitler. For millions of communists who hoped for an exodus out of poverty, Stalin was a hero. So was Hitler for his nazi followers, for many dreamt about a liberation from the slavery of unemployment. The fanaticism among their hero-worshippers led to the murder of more than one hundred fellowmen. If you believe too much in man, being created in the image of an all-powerful God, you may turn into a devil. However much the God-image may appeal to your vanity. Is there an alternative? Look at Thales!
