Example text

ACTIONS Speak loud but sometimes a whisper is more welcome. ADHERENCE Preconceived notions are the hardest to give up. ADJUSTMENT The adjusted are so completely oriented within themselves that nothing can penetrate that wall of egocentricity except what they chew and digest. ADMIRATION Is a balm when known, an offense when shown. Who fails to admire will never love. ADOLESCENCE Neither infancy nor childhood, but adolescence is decisive in the making of man. The tastes, physical and mental, fostered in those days will determine the rest of the living years.

FARM LIFE Its idyllic aspects have been grossly overrated. The work of raising and tending kitchen requirements is hardly inspiring. FASCISM The path of the dictator is paved with democratic pronouncements. FATALISM The man who hates his enemies is no wiser than the child who hits at the chair over which he has stumbled. FATE Caesar thought that he cast the dice of fate, but to the far heavens in distant night it was merely one hill of ants robbing another. Fate holds this tiny globe in its giant palm, hardly taking note of the dust on it called man.

Free men have no right to live and work in isolation if they wish to retain the bliss of their heritage. Rather is it their duty to crash into the lairs of the slave-makers and slave-holders, so that the rest of the world may become free and stay free. Freedom lies not in the resignation to want, but rather in the accession to true values. Freedom is not dominant where subjugation still exists, even in a corner.
