   In the early 1400’s, there lived a man named Nicholas of Cuza, who was, among other things, a great mathematician.  In one of his better known work, entitled,  ”Learned Ignorance,”  he attempted to apply math to philosophy and theology.  In one segment, chapter 14, he expounds upon the notion of...

    Thesis Concept It should be noted that all efforts, thus far, have been in the industry of answering this fundamental question, "just what is this notion, ‘The Dignity of Man?'" This is the answer I am in pursuit of; for just as the Law of the land is stable and yet it should...

A few months ago I bought the entire seven-year series boxed set of The West Wing -- an investment, if you consider the paltry offerings on TV lately. In my humble opinion, it retains its place of excellence in TV writing, and, as far as possible, the writers were sticklers for authenticity,...

Bad reviews are every author's lot, but what is one to do upon receiving them? I mean - someone hates you! And they hate your whole family and your cute kitten whom you saved from drowning, and they hate all the charities you support, and they hope you die very soon of some horrible flesh-eating...

I would sit by her bedside and talk to her or just read; I was told that voices registered. She probably knew when...

September 21   SELF-SEEKING IS A DEBIT     Trying to get credit for everything I do has run me into debt in my anonymity account, which draws directly from my humility bank.  I cannot expend my resources seeking acknowledgement and expect to retain much dignity or class.  How can I build within...

The most sacred part of the human being is his face. Whatever might be this individual, the integrity of his face by which, he identifies himself to the world, is sacred. It allows his relatives to recognize him, to inter him and to mourn for him. That is why, when we want to hurt someone deeply in...

I'm destined to become a fine and portly fellow if the dignity behind my Dashed Hope Fund idea is ever recognized. Beginning January 1, it’ll be my policy to invoke the D.H.F. anytime someone calls to say they want to use one of my stories. It’ll be triggered after they flatter the story, assure me...
