    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Not so many years ago there was no simpler or more intelligible notion than that of going on a journey. Travel /movement through space /provided the universal metaphor for change. One of the subtle confusions /perhaps one of the secret terrors /of modern life is that we have lost this refuge. No longer do we move through space as we once did.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The most important lesson of American history is the promise of the unexpected. None of our ancestors would have imagined settling way over here on this unknown continent. So we must continue to have society that is hospitable to the unexpected, which allows possibilities to develop beyond our own imaginings.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It is only a short step from exaggerating what we can find in the world to exaggerating our power to remake the world. Expecting more novelty than there is, more greatness than there is, and more strangeness than there is, we imagine ourselves masters of a plastic universe. But a world we can shape to our will is a shapeless world.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The American experience stirred mankind from discovery to exploration. From the cautious quest for what they knew (or thought they knew) was out there, into an enthusiastic reaching to the unknown. These are two substantially different kinds of human enterprise.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“As individuals and as a nation, we now suffer from social narcissism. The beloved Echo of our ancestors, the virgin America, has been abandoned. We have fallen in love with our own image, with images of our making, which turn out to be images of ourselves.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We need not be theologians to see that we have shifted responsibility for making the world interesting from God to the newspaperman.”
