if my happiness is so deep that it is a faith,
so thoughtful that it becomes a philosophy of life.

my testimony to the creed of optimism is worth hearing.
- Helen Keller
...
Helen Keller (1880-1968) overcame being both deaf and blind
to become a famous author, lecturer, and activist
for women's suffrage, workers' rights, and ending war.

As a nation of freemen, we must live
through all time, or die by suicide.
- Abraham Lincoln

The ultimate authority must always rest
with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

For those men who, sooner or later, are lucky enough

comes when they cease being bodies in other men's command
and find that they control their own time,
when they learn their own voice and authority.

Many of us have been conditioned to trust others' opinions
more than our own, and I believe that sort of trust is excessive.

doctors, lawyers, priests. I trust my doctor's intentions toward me,
but I don't blindly follow his suggestions
without checking other sources also.
He was trained to prescribe a pill for everything,
and does it with the best of intentions,
but I often choose to trust God's quiet voice inside me
rather than my doctor's medical advice.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
