Quotations



God made all animals that walk on the earth (the sixth day), on the same day. He created man separately in His own image with the intent that man would have dominion over every other living thing on Earth (Genesis, 1:26-28)

All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of bidrs.  (I Corinthians, 15:39)

When we look at living creatures from an outward point of view, one of the first things that strike us is that they are bundles of habits.  - William James, American Psychologist and Philosopher


Great men may mould history, but it is good men who make the earth wholesome. - Emerson

So much of the knowledge in our minds is based on lies and superstitions that come from thousands of years ago. Humans create stories long before we are born, and we inherit those stories, we adopt them, and we live in those stories. - Don Miguel Ruiz, the Mexican spiritual author, The Voice of Knowledge, 2004

Where is the life we lost in living? Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Where is the knowledge we have lost in information? - T.S. Eliot

Unless man increases in wisdom as much as in knowledge, increase of knowledge will only be increase of sorrow.  - Bertrand Russell, Impact of Science on Society (1952)

Tips for Academic Research and Writing




Plan your research in for time chunks: this morning, today, this week, this month, next few months, this year, next three years. Have a clear idea for what you want to achieve in these time periods and try to stick to this as much as you can.

Make a start. Once you have an idea for a piece of writing, create a file and folder  for it on your computer and write down anything, however rough and however brief.  It can always be polished and developed later or even discarded if you decide eventually not to go ahead with the idea.

Organise your writing into different computer files and folders: articles in progress, submitted articles, accepted articles, conference papers, blog posts, book proposals, grant applications etc.

Organise your PDF journal article collection under topics in folders on your computer.

If you are feeling unenthusiastic or have hit a wall on a topic – leave that piece of writing for a while and work on another piece of writing.


Use your writing in as many different ways as you can – conference papers, articles/chapters, books, blog posts. Turn the small (unrefereed) pieces into bigger (refereed) pieces whenever you can and vice versa. What starts out as a blog post can be later developed into an article.  Conversely some of the main arguments of an article can be used in one or more blog posts.

Quotations




A lone species-the human, fornow- has grasped th earth's future in its hands, casting on it a resonsibility never before borne by any other species.  - Martine Rees

Humankind, with the devices it has on hand, is potentially the maker of its own demise the the demise of the cosmos.    Martin Rees in the Book, Our Final Century (2004)

Martin Rees - Earth in its final century

"An unexamined life is not worth living" -  Socrates

"Is man a tiny boad in a tempest, raised one moment on the foaming crest of a billow and dashed down into a yawning chasm the next, rolled to and fro at the mercy of his own good and bad actions, a powerless, helpless wreck, in an ever-raging, ever-rushing uncompromising current cause and effect, a little moth placed under wheel of causation, which rolls on crushing everything in its way, and waits not for the widow's tears or the orphan's cry? -  Swamy Vivekananda

"Is man a mere condition to be overcome- for the good of the world?"  - Friedrich Nietzsche

Suffering is the central fact of human life and it is its denial that causes more suffering - Buddha

We have to recognize that there is a metastasized cancer in the body of man. If humankind is to survive, we have to deal with that metastasized cancer. We have to cut out the parts that need to be cut out, in a surgical way. We have to heal the parts that can't be cut out.   - William Tiller, Stanford professor and author of Science and Human Transformation

The savage brutal competition which drives us to tear each other's flesh, and which makes man an embodiment of merciless malevolence -  William Lane, Creed of Humanity

If God is laid aside, then all our hopes, big and small, rest on nothing. - Pope Benedict XIV

Without sacrifice nothing can be achieved in life - Russian Philosopher P.D. Ouspensky

We must let the spiritual being play on the physical body as the master mucisian plays on a wondrous lute or harp. - Theosophist and author Gottfried de Purucker (Man in Evolution, 1941)

We cannot find our soul with our mind; we must harness our heart. - Gary Zukav (The Seat of the Soul, 1989)

As a species we have forgotten how to love. But love alone is not the key. The key is knowledge of heart intelligence.  - Elaine Matthews (Heartbeat of Intelligence, 2002)

In the quest for ultimate meaning, the transcendalist route is much easier to follow. That is why, even as empiricism is winning the mind, transcendentalism continues to win the heart. - Edward Wilson, in book Consilience, 1998.
