"Before the Iraq war I was quite disturbed by some of the neoconservatives, who were saying things like, ‘What is the point of being a superpower if you can’t do such-and-such, take on these responsibilities?’ The point of being a superpower is that people will leave you alone." —- Thomas Sowell

Beauty

He who seeks Truth
Shall find Beauty

He who seeks Beauty
Shall find Vanity

He who seeks Order
Shall find Gratification

He who seeks Gratification
Shall be Disappointed

He who considers himself as the servant of his fellow being
Shall find the joy of Self-Expression

He who seeks Self-Expression
Shall fall into the pit of Arrogance

Arrogance is incompatible with nature
Thru the nature of the universe
and the nature of man
we shall seek Truth

If we seek truth we shall find Beauty

Moshe Safdie
