Litapage2001 | 5 comments If you wish the world to become loving and compassionate, become loving and compassionate yourself. If you wish to diminish fear in the world, diminish your own. These are the gifts that you can give.

message 11: by Nina (new)

Nina | 58 comments Berlin was a fascinating city but East Berlin before the wall was taken down; not so fascinating! I had to run along a maze of mines and barking dogs and machine guns aimed at me at Checkpoint Charlie. I was trying to find where the guard took my six week old granddaughter in her yellow baby buggy. One guard screamed, "Halt, Verbotten?" But on I went and didn't get killed. I found the baby and eventually they gave us back our passports and I almost kissed the ground when we got past the wall into West Berlin. My daughter and son=in-law were running a night club in W. Berlon and we lived in an apartment building that had once been a Nazi Headquarters. nina

Quotation posted in: To The Glory of Man

The man-worshippers, in my sense of the term, are those who see man's highest potential and strive to actualize it. The man-haters are those who regard man as a helpless, depraved, contemptible creature - and struggle never to let him discover otherwise.

- The Fountainhead
