"It does not take a majority to prevail ... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brush fires of freedom in the minds of men."

"If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Winston Churchill.

"Persecution for the expression of opinions seems to me perfectly logical. If you have no doubt of your premises or your power and want a certain result with all your heart you naturally express your wishes in law and sweep away all opposition... But when men have realized that time has upset many fighting faiths, they may come to believe even more than they believe the very foundations of their own conduct that the ultimate good desired is better reached by free trade in ideas, that the best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out. That at any rate is the theory of our Constitution." Associate Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (joined by Associate Justice Louis Brandeis) in the U.S. Supreme Court case Abrams v. U.S.

Appreciation lets us
SWITCH UP THE FORMAT
------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----
ALL I ASK
IS THAT YOU
REASON WITH ME.
It has been proven the most beneficial emotion for your heart. Nothing else provides the rush that comes from being appreciated. And nothing can destroy like its absence. Witness the people with partners that fail to appreciate them. Like the perception of beauty, appreciation corresponds with the faculty of taste, which one develops through effort. Like the fine artist`s training in the use of light and shadow, the dancers training in the use of movement, the actor`s training in the use of voice and gesture, with effort we acquire the tools to achieve the outcome we seek , particularly the art of appreciation. The effort of life is itself a training. Likewise, we become aware of the range of options available and possible successful outcomes through effort of learning, experience, training. We must learn, in order to appreciate. The more you know,the more you realize how little you know; yet, you bring more to the mission of relationship vis-a-vis its probability for success. So
is the mother of the blues.
The majority of Americans, are miseducated, uninformed and void of a genuine opinion. An opinion requires judgment or appraisal, which involves examining evidence and coming to a substantiated conclusion.
"The most effectual engines for pacifying a nation are the public papers. A despotic government always keeps a kind of standing army of newswriters (Journalism link)who, without any regard to truth or to what should be like truth, invent and put into the papers whatever might serve the ministers. This suffices with the mass of the people who have no means of distinguishing the false from the true paragraphs of a newspaper." --Thomas Jefferson to G. K. van Hogendorp, Oct. 13, 1785.
"Our people, merely for want of intelligence which they may rely on, are become lethargic and insensible of the state they are in." --Thomas Jefferson to John Adams, 1777.
Clearly without appreciation we risk intercourse with the vulgar and common and therefore, missing the splendor of love. And you find yourself giving it away when you think your in love. The undeveloped being, dim, dense and closed minded, lives in isolation of consciousness within himself, his village, his town, his country. Depending on the how far his mind has been developed, he is always contained within definite personality limits, separated from other creations by the confines of his senses and sympathies. More simply, life is all surface, no substance, no depth.
So Know thyself, or suffer.
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ------------------------------ -----------------
The developed man has as different a breadth of perceptions as a walnut differs from the winds. The developed man can search out any distance with an extension of himself, his full consciousness concentrated at any point he desires. He assumes kinship with other consciousnesses as poignantly as with his own.
choosing from the best available, using the power or practice of discerning and enjoying, builds excellence and demands a wide-ranging intellect. Necessities: familiarity with correctness, finesse, polish, refinement, elegance, grace. Hence Appreciation empowers the mature character. As a result one is no longer, while living as other men, restricted by their limitations of position--position in the biopyschosocial sense--because anything one turns attention to ardently, anything he loves, he becomes in this greater entity. It gives one the ability to broadcast self, to travel to it sympathetically, as it were, on its individual wavelength sent
upon an unusual or special service; as an ambassador plenipotentiary for exponentiating success.
When we share the knowledge of what is remarkable, uncommon, rare; that which exceeds the common degree, being beyond or out of the common order or method, we perpetuate appreciation. This benefits all concerned. WE succeed. What we are on the inside, what we continually think about, eventually shows in our
words, actions, and even our faces. When we discover, compliment, appreciate, demand, and become extraordinary, we develop character.
Character is property, the noblest of possessions. Investing in the general good will and respect of others may pay, but not in the riches of this world`s goods.
The reward is in the esteem and reputation fairly and honorably won.
In life good qualities should tell. The secret of `success`(winning) today has become rigging the game. In America we have `characters`, and have lost character. Our former Commander-In-Chief. Mr. Bush`s ancestors owned slaves. A trip to Africa would warrant a mention of that by a man of character, as a beneficiary of `one of the great crimes against humanity`, his words. As in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king, in the land of the thief, virtue has ring of truth. Business and political leadership model the amorality of the 11th commandmant. Thou shalt not get caught.
Industry, integrity and virtue should rank highest. The really best SHOULD be foremost.
Simple honesty of purpose goes a long way in life if founded on a just estimate of self and a steady obedience to the rule you knowand feel to be right. It holds one straight, gives one strength and sustenance, and forms the mainspring of vigorous action."No man is bound to be rich or great-no, nor to be wise; but every man is bound to behonest."
-Sir Benjamin Rudyard, Debate on the Petition of Rights, A.D. 1628.
But the purpose must be inspired by sound principles, pursued with undeviating adherence to truth, integrity and uprightness. Without principles, a man is like a ship without rudder or compass, windblown and tempest tossed. He is as one without law, or rule, order or government.
"Moral principles," says Hume,"are social and universal.
They form, in a manner, the party of humankind against vice and disorder, its common enemy."
Epictetus once received a visit from a certain magnificent orator going to Rome on a lawsuit, who wished to learn from the Stoic something of his philosophy. Epictetus received his visitor coolly, not believing in his sincerity. "You will only criticise my style," said he; "not really wishing to learn principles. "Well, but," said the orator, "if
I attend to that sort of thing, I shall be a mere pauper, like you, with no plate, nor equipage, nor land.""I don`t want such things," replied Epictetus; "and besides, you
are poorer than I am after all. Patron or no patron, what care I? You do care. I am richer than you. I don`t care what Caesar thinks of me. I flatter no one. This is what I
have, instead of your gold and silver plate. You have silver vessels, but earthenware reasons, principles, appetites. My mind too is a kingdom, and it furnishes me with
abundant and happy occupation in lieu of your restless idleness. All your possesions seem small to you: mine seem great to me. Your desire is insatiate--mine is satisfied."
Talent is by no means rare in the world; nor is even genius. But can the talent be trusted?--can the genius. Not unless based on truthfulness--on veracity. It is this
quality more than any other that commands the esteem and respect, and secures the confidence of others. Truthfulness is at the foundation of all personal excellence. It
exhibits itself in conduct. It is rectitude--truth in action, and shines through every word, deed. It means reliability, and convinces other men that it can be trusted. And a man is already of consequence in the world when it is known that he can be relied
on--that when he says he knows a thing, he does know it-- that when he says he will do a thing, he can do, and does it. This Reliableness(sic) becomes the general esteem of
and confidence of mankind.
In the affairs of life, of business, it is not intellect that tells so much as character-not brains so much as heart-not genius so much as discipline, regulated by judgement. Therefore, no better qualification exists for the use of either private or public life than a
fair share of ordinary good sense, guided by rectitude. Good sense, disciplined by experience and inspired by virtue, conceives a practical wisdom-the highest wisdom-the union of the worldly with the spiritual.
because men`s wisdom makes them good, but because their goodness makes them wise."
Sir Henry Taylor, "The Statesman," p. 30.
It is because of the controlling power of character in life that we often see men exercise an amount of influence apparently out of all proportion to their intellectual
endowments. They appear to act by means of some latent power, some reserved force, which acts secretly, by mere presence. As Burke said of a powerful nobleman of the nineteenth century, "his virtues were his means." The secret is that the aims of such men are felt to be pure and noble, and they act upon others with a constraining power.
In appreciating this secret we distinguish authority, distinct from the concepts law and ethics with which it is sometimes confused. Authoritative morality refers to the basic convictions about right
and wrong excavated out of human experience over many centuries.
Thus the reputation of men OR NATIONS of genuine character may be of slow growth, yet their true qualities cannot be wholly concealed. They may be misrepresented by some and misunderstood by others; misfortune, adversity, aye even treachery may for a time overtake them; but,with patience and endurance, they eventually inspire the respect and command the confidence which they really deserve. Truth crushed to earth will rise.
When one thinks, feels or says
a relationship is forming on the highest level of being. The NEUROLOGICAL LEVELS OF BEING are The Environmental, Behavioral, Capability, Belief, Identity and the Highest-Spiritual. The Spiritual level reaches beyond ourselves and individuals to our familial, communal and global communities. The larger self is the sense of being beyond our image of ourselves, our values, beliefs, thoughts, actions or sensations. The relationship is in connection with who ELSE and what ELSE is in the larger system surround us. The "awakening" to the greater context that gives life meaning and purpose is indicative of mental changes at this level of experience.
Character is formed by a variety of minute circumstances, more or less under the regulation and control of the individual. Not a day passes without its discipline, whether
for good or for evil. Each act, however trivial, has its train of consequences, as even a
hair casts a shadow. Every action, every thought, every feeling, contributes to the education of the temper, the habits, and the understanding, and exercises an inevitable influence upon all the acts of our future life. Knowing one's self, one can form Honorable relations-compacts.
Character is undergoing
constant change, for better or worse-either being elevated on the one hand, or degraded on the other. The mechanical law, that
action and reaction are equal, holds true also in morals. Good deeds act and react on the doers of them, as do evil. They, once modeled, even produce like effects in
those who are the subjects of them. Yet man is not the creature, so much as he is the creator, of circumstances. By the exercise of his free will, he can direct his actions so that they shall be productive of good rather than evil.
"Nothing can work me damage but myself," said St. Bernard, "harm that I sustain I carry about with me...I am never a real sufferer but by my own fault."
The best of character cannot be successfully formed without effort, self-discipline, and self-control. Faltering, stumbling, temporary defeat, difficulties and temptations manifest to be wrestled and overcome. The very effort to advance to higher a standard of character improves us. So fellow traveler, it's because I can APPRECIATE the work of art you make, and are making, of your life, and see the you that can recognize the same when you see it, too.
For this faculty to become second nature requires a very specific education.

In the words of Theodore Roosevelt in 1907 at the Jamestown Exposition: “Men can never escape being governed. They must govern themselves or submit to being governed by others. If from lawlessness, fickleness , folly, or self-indulgence they refuse to govern themselves, then most assuredly they will have to be governed by other. A sovereign cannot make excuses for his failures; a sovereign must accept the responsibility for the exercise of the POWER that inheres in him.”
To become it.…you must live it. It’s an imperative.
