that recognizes the equality of all,
and pays honor to the sacredness of interconnection.

I bow to the divine in you."
While saying Namaste, press the palms of the hands together
in front of the heart and bow the head slightly.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Suspended between earth and sky,
my humanity draws from both,

than the ephemeral - merely different.

Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will

because law is often but the tyrant's will,
and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
- Thomas Jefferson

We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal;

All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle,

which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression.
- Thomas Jefferson

The greatest challenge ...
is not the exploring of the mysteries of the outer space,
but the developing of the millions of God's forgotten children,
the developing peoples of the world,
so they can become our equal
and full partners to build a better world -
a world of freedom and brotherhood.
- Jimmy Yen

The assertion that "all men are created equal"
was of no practical use in effecting our separation from Great Britain
and it was placed in the Declaration not for that, but for future use.

It is a wonderful advantage to a man,
in every pursuit or avocation,
to secure an adviser in a sensible woman.
In woman there is at once a subtle delicacy of tact,
and a plain soundness of judgement,
which are rarely combined to an equal degree in man.
A woman, if she be really your friend,
will have a sensitive regard for your character, honor, repute.
She will seldom counsel you to do a shabby thing:
for a woman friend always desires to be proud of you.
- Edward Bulwer-Lytton

However carefully we plan our future,
we are always climbing the steps to nowhere.

and that is good.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Truth is not only violated by falsehood;

- Albert Einstein

Important ideas can come from unexpected places.
We tend to label people - Genius, Idiot,

to good ideas - whatever their source.
It is equally important to avoid accepting any idea
merely because we respect that person's
other ideas or accomplishments.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

a day for a new plan and new action.
If today, in conscious awareness, you choose
the same plan as yesterday, you are wise.
If you choose a different plan, you are equally wise.
Whatever you choose, choose with intention.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

I am free of prejudice. I hate everyone equally.

not so easy to create noblemen and kings.

Dogs look up to us.
Cats look down on us.
Pigs treat us as equals.

Personally, I have fond memories of playing
on slippery rocks on the banks of a rushing river
as a child and hitchhiking in college.
To those who say, "But times are different now,"
I reply that statistically life is much safer now
than in the 1950s, with regard to both crime and accidents.
What has changed is our attitudes.
In those years, a broken leg from falling off a swing
or the back of a tractor was just part of childhood -
an excuse for gathering autographs.
Today that broken leg would be a source
of outrage and probably lawsuits.
I long for a simpler time when life was taken less seriously.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Not everyone is always going to like what you do.
Your job application, your book proposal,

Your boss, your spouse, even the person
behind you in the supermarket checkout line
is occasionally going to think that you are doing it all wrong.
Don't take it personally.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Don't take it personally -
it's not usually about you.
