Order Quotes

Civilization begins with order, grows with liberty, and dies with chaos.

Will Durant

Climate change is so big that people who study it.. and many do.. need to speak to it.

In order to get policy right, policymakers.. governments.. need to make decisions based on sound science.

Nobility is a graceful ornament to the civil order. It is the Corinthian capital of polished society.

Edmund Burke

We could say that meditation doesn't have a reason or doesn't have a purpose. In this respect it's unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don't do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment

Alan Watts

Les Parrott

The paradox of courage is that a man must be a little careless of his life even in order to keep it.

Gilbert K. Chesterton

Francois de Salignac Fenelon

There is a cheap literature that speaks to us of the need of escape. It is true that when we travel we are in search of distance. But distance is not to be found. It melts away. And escape has never led anywhere. The moment a man finds that he must play the races, go the Arctic, or make war in order to feel himself alive, that man has begin to spin the strands that bind him to other men and to the world. But what wretched strands! A civilization that is really strong fills man to the brim, though he never stir. What are we worth when motionless, is the question.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The part always has a tendency to reunite with its whole in order to escape from its imperfection.
