please, can you be more specific as to where others of us might find
them? Thanks.

"To be truly educated means to have one's insight deepened--not to have
one's information increased. It means to have a clearer, greater
understanding of and sympathy for the human race and its problems."
Norman Vincent Peale


"To deny the need for silent reflection is to deny the thought process
that gives life its needed perspective." Jamie Sams


"The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us
from the support of a cause we believe to be just." Abraham Lincoln


"The existence and validity of human rights are not written in the stars.
"The ideals concerning the conduct of men toward each other and the
desirable structure of the community have been conceived and taught by
enlightened individuals in the course of history. Those ideals and
convictions which resulted from historical experience, from the craving
for beauty and harmony, have been readily accepted in theory by man - and
at all times, have been trampled upon by the same people under the
pressure of their animal instincts. A large part of history is therefore
replete with the struggle for those human rights, an eternal struggle
in which a final victory can never be won. But to tire in that struggle
would mean the ruin of society." Albert Einstein
