Love has no desire but to fulfill itself
To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night
To wake at dawn with a winged heart, and give thanks for another day of loving.
- - Kahil Gibran (1883 – 1931)
Some day, after mastering the winds, the tides, and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of Love. Then, for the second time in the history of mankind, humans will have discovered fire.
- - Teilhard de Chardin S.J. (Jesuit priest, theologian and paleontologist; 1881-1955)

“You see, until a few weeks ago, it seemed as if Wall Street had effectively bribed and bullied our political system into forgetting about that whole drawing lavish paychecks while destroying the world economy thing. Then, all of a sudden, some people insisted on bringing the subject up again. And their (Occupy Wall Street) outrage has found resonance with millions of Americans. No wonder Wall Street is whining.”
