Quote of the moment
I wish also, in revising the constitution, we may throw into that section, which interdicts the abuse of certain powers in the state legislatures, some other provisions of equal if not greater importance than those already made. The words, "No state shall pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, &c." were wise and proper restrictions in the constitution. I think there is more danger of those powers being abused by the state governments than by the government of the United States. The same may be said of other powers which they possess, if not controuled by the general principle, that laws are unconstitutional which infringe the rights of the community. I should therefore wish to extend this interdiction, and add, as I have stated in the 5th resolution, that no state shall violate the equal right of conscience, freedom of the press, or trial by jury in criminal cases; because it is proper that every government should be disarmed of powers which trench upon those particular rights. I know in some of the state constitutions the power of the government is controuled by such a declaration, but others are not. I cannot see any reason against obtaining even a double security on those points; and nothing can give a more sincere proof of the attachment of those who opposed this constitution to these great and important rights, than to see them join in obtaining the security I have now proposed; because it must be admitted, on all hands, that the state governments are as liable to attack these invaluable privileges as the general government is, and therefore ought to be as cautiously guarded against.
~ (James Madison) Proposing Bill of Rights to House, June 8, 1789 ~

Quote of the moment
A strong sense of separateness in the past has brought about competition and warring. But now, we are more interdependent. So we need to communicate, hold dialogs, and compromise.

It would be good to have a bullet that searches for and hits the real troublemaker, which is within us.

~ The Path to Tranquility, April 13, 14th Dalai Lama ~

Quote of the moment
Exile has helped me. When, at some point in our lives, we meet a real tragedy - which could happen to any one of us - we can react in two ways. Obviously, we can lose hope, let ourselves slip into discouragement, into alcohol, drugs, and unending sadness. Or else we can wake ourselves up, discover in ourselves an energy that was hidden there, and act with more clarity, more force.
~ The Path to Tranquility, October 8, 14th Dalai Lama ~

Quote of the moment
Flee from the press and dwell with soothfastness; Suffice unto thy good though it be small, For hoard hath hate and climbing ticklishness, Press hath envy and weal blent overall;
