Scio me nihil scire – I know that I know nothing. Certain knowledge cannot be obtained. (Socrates)
Sapere aude! – Dare to be wise! (Horace)
” It is no longer good enough to cry peace, we must
act peace, live peace, and live in peace”.
Here’s the actual quote this is based on, from A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Are we seeking power for power’s sake? Or are we seeking to make the world and our nation better places to li…ve. If we seek the latter, violence can never provide the answer. The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
”The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift. We will not solve the problems of the world from the same level of thinking we were at when we created them. More than anything else, this new century demands new thinking: We must change our materially based analyses of the world around us to include broader, more multidimensional perspectives.”
