    @on islands –I also love that quote!
    You can find many more quots attributed to this man in a picture in my set ”Surprise me!” The title of the picture is: ”A tribute to Leo F. Buscaglia”.
    I would like to recommend his book; ”Living Loving and Learning”. It’s just lovely! And it’s also suitable as a gift-book to someone you love. It’s also easy-read for young people. See more in the links to the picture I am here mentioning about. There you can read more about his books. There are also interviews of him. See also about the book at for instance Amazon.com.
  • maurice flower 9y

    Thank you all!
    @*pele* –I have not read Barbara Kingsolver. Just a few quots attributed to her. Well, maybe I ought to read her. Any suggestions on book titles? I haven’t heard of the movie ”Inherit the wind”... What is the ”Scopes Monkey trial”? About ga good source for quotations...Didn’t I tell you?!
    @FrizzText –I am glad you liked this one! Maybe then you might like the picture with many quotes that I have in my set ”Surprise me!”.
    @Katemina –Thanks. Maybe you also would like to see the quotation-collection in a picture in my set ”Surprise me!”.

    Barbara Kingsolver: The Poisonwood Bible, Bean Trees and Pigs in Heaven.

    Scopes Monkey Trial (from wikipedia):
    The "Scopes Trial" (Scopes v. State, 152 Tenn. 424, 278 S.W. 57 (Tenn. 1925), often called the "Scopes Monkey Trial") pitted against each other lawyers William Jennings Bryan and Clarence Darrow (the latter representing teacher John T. Scopes) in an American court case that tested a law passed on March 13, 1925, which forbade the teaching, in any state-funded educational establishment in Tennessee, of "any theory that denies the story of the Divine Creation of man as taught in the Bible, and to teach instead that man has descended from a lower order of animals." This is often interpreted as meaning that the law forbade the teaching of any aspect of the theory of evolution.

    What is interesting is that the issue is being debated again here in some states in the US: they want to teach Intelligent Design (another name for Creationism) and they want to put Evolution at the same level.... :-( (and I am talking about Biology classes).

    The movie Inherit the wind is based loosely in this trial. It is a fascinating movie, worth watching.

    @*pele* –Graciela, thank you for the titles and for explaining all this. I knew some of it since before. But I didn’t know that it was this ’bad’ again!!... Very interesting. I will FlickrMail you about sources for quotations. But I think I mailed you before...maybe not...
  • maurice flower 9y

    By the way, it’s a metaphore here in the title of this picture...

    Open air temple

    Think of it as your brain – and your brain connected with vibrating strings of inspiration and pulsating floods of love from your own heart!
  • Graciela Blaum 9y

    Yes, evolution is "bad again" in some places here in the US. :-((
    Hopefully it will get the status it deserves in academia. And also I hope they put the "intelligent design" theory where it belong, along with creationism: in religious teachings, but definitely neither of them belongs to science classes.

    hello hans, thanks for your kind note. i am travelling throught Middle America, and often it is quite scary, the level of ignorance and complacency, which leads to these sorts of frighteningly limited views of life. thank you for presenting the more 'open' view, againa nd again with your wonderful creativity!!!

    "The Icarus In Us All"

    Sages, many and great things have written;
    Some here quoted, I am smitten!
    But, when I look deep inside,
    I find myself but a frail mortal:
    Often running fast, on a high,
    Only to find that, like Icarus, I fall.
    And, as Bruegel and Auden well knew,
    When Icarus falls, the world,
    Continues, not noticing, on its way.
