They say that if you are
Ever confronted by
A lion or bear,
To never act scared.
Instead act like
You are the greater animal
And that they're
The hare
That you are about
To tear.
This has been
And compared.
This is how presidents
Are loved
And feared.
Each one of us has an animal
Within us
That is armed with
Physical or
Spiritual gifts
That could shoot spears
Through the air.

So next time
You are confronted in
A fight that seems unfair,
Just remember the lion and the bear.
Your greater animal
And all that feel your magnificence
Will quickly step away
And disappear.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Walt Whitman
“Shocked? I consider Bob one of the constellations of our time — of our country — America — a bright, magnificent constellation.

Think of Voltaire, Paine, Hicks, not to say anything of modern men whom we could mention.

{Whitman's thoughts on his close friend, the great Robert Ingersoll}”
Walt Whitman, Walt Whitman's Camden Conversations

George Gamow
“If and when all the laws governing physical phenomena are finally discovered, and all the empirical constants occurring in these laws are finally expressed through the four independent basic constants, we will be able to say that physical science has reached its end, that no excitement is left in further explorations, and that all that remains to a physicist is either tedious work on minor details or the self-educational study and adoration of the magnificence of the completed system. At that stage physical science will enter from the epoch of Columbus and Magellan into the epoch of the National Geographic Magazine!”
George Gamow
