In automobile terms, the child supplies the power but the parents have to do the steering. ~ Benjamin Spock (born 2 May 1903)

  • 3 because all children need some form of guidance. Tarzan and Mowgli have nice stories but they aren't the best characteristic transformations to be had. Zarbon 15:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

  • 2 Kalki 12:42, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Friends, the soil is poor, we must sow seeds in plenty for us to garner even modest harvests. ~ Novalis (born 2 May 1772)

  • 2 because it is best to be prepared so that when a disappointment comes along, it will not overwhelm one to an unparalleled extent. Zarbon 15:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 InvisibleSun 07:07, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 16:07, 2 May 2008 (UTC)

Out of a mob a society has developed, chaos has been transformed into a manifold world. ~ Novalis (born 2 May 1772)

  • 2 because a transformation can be made, even from the state of chaos. Zarbon 15:22, 28 April 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 InvisibleSun 07:07, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 16:07, 2 May 2008 (UTC) but extended to start with "Before abstraction everything is one, but one like chaos; after abstraction everything is united again, but this union is a free binding of autonomous, self-determined beings."

Realists are, as a rule, only men in the rut of routine who are incapable of transcending a narrow circle of antiquated notions. ~ Theodor Herzl (born May 2, 1860)

  • 3 InvisibleSun 07:07, 1 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 2 because being a realist is fine, but exceeding to an extent of not seeing anything else, to a degree of narrowness isn't warranted. Zarbon 04:37, 2 May 2008 (UTC)
  • 3 Kalki 16:07, 2 May 2008 (UTC) though I believe his comments refer to those who are normally called "realists" because they focus upon the physical processes or what are normally called practical affairs, but he also gives some hints of the "idealism" which must be included within the scope of a higher "realism."
  • 2.5 Ningauble 17:21, 1 May 2009 (UTC) Vernacular and technical meanings of "realism" vary widely, and vary over time. I suspect his meaning could have been translated with greater precision were simplicity of expression sacrificed.

It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen. ~ Jerome K. Jerome (born May 2, 1859)

  • 2 InvisibleSun 23:37, 1 May 2009 (UTC)

Moral Action is that great and only Experiment, in which all riddles of the most manifold appearances explain themselves. Whoso understands it, and in rigid sequence of Thought can lay it open, is forever master of Nature. ~ Novalis

  • 1 Zarbon 06:56, 8 May 2008 (UTC)
