With respect to the words general welfare, I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators
Let us celebrate the occasion with wine and sweet words.
Every individual is at once the beneficiary and the victim of the linguistic tradition into which he has been born - the beneficiary inasmuch as language gives access to the accumulated records of other people's experience, the victim in so far as it confirms him in the belief that reduced awareness is the only awareness and as it bedevils his sense of reality, so that he is all too apt to take his concepts for data, his words for actual things.

There is a sort of Witchcrafts in those things, whereto the Temptations of the Devil would inveigle us. To worship the Devil is Witchcraft, and under that notion was our Lord urged unto sin.

A gentleman would be ashamed should his deeds not match his words.
However many holy words you read,However many you speak,What good will they do you If you do not act on upon them?

We are getting into semantics again. If we use words, there is a very grave danger they will be misinterpreted.
These thoughts did not come in any verbal formulation. I rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express it in words afterward.
Intentions compressed into words enfold magical power.
Writing must always have intention because words have power.
Now for me some words come easy, But I know that they don't mean that much, Compared to the things that are said When lovers touch...
