Time waits for no one.
Every science begins as philosophy and ends as art.
~Will Durant, The Story of Philosophy, 1926
Remember that credit is money.
~Benjamin Franklin (1706–1790), a Founding Father of the United States, was a printer, writer, political theorist, politician, postmaster, scientist, musician, inventor, satirist, civic activist, statesman, and diplomat.
If you would like to know the value of money, go and try to borrow some.
Time is money.
For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven.
A time to be born and a time to die.
A time to plant and a time to harvest.
A time to kill and a time to heal.
A time to tear down and a time to build up.
A time to cry and a time to laugh.
A time to grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a time to turn away.
A time to search and a time to quit searching.
A time to keep and a time to throw away.
A time to tear and a time to mend.
A time to be quiet and a time to speak.
A time to love and a time to hate.
A time for war and a time for peace.
At the heart of science is an essential balance between two seemingly contradictory attitudes: an openness to new ideas, no matter how bizarre or counterintuitive they may be, and the most ruthless skeptical scrutiny of all ideas, old and new. This is how deep truths are winnowed from deep nonsense.
It is unlikely that we will ever see a star being born. Stars are like animals in the wild. We may see the very young, but never their actual birth, which is a veiled and secret event. Stars are born inside thick clouds of dust and gas in the spiral arms of the galaxy, so thick that visible light cannot penetrate them.
~Heinz R. Pagels, Perfect Symmetry: The Search for the Beginning of Time (1985), p. 44
No research will answer all queries that the future may raise. It is wiser to praise the work for what it has accomplished and then to formulate the problems still to be solved.
~Theobald Smith, letter to Dr. E. B. Krumhaar (11 Oct 1933), in Journal of Bacteriology (Jan 1934), 27, No. 1, p. 19.
In much of society, research means to investigate something you do not know or understand.
~Neil Armstrong (b. 1930), American astronaut, the first man to set foot on the moon.

A Time for Birth
A time for birth,
A time for death,
A time to feel
The Spirit’s breath.
Mainstream (FAKE) media refuses to state our long list of achievements, including 28 legislative signings, strong borders & great optimism!

The lawyers, profs,*
And judges let
The people down,
To great regret.
*Notable exceptions in our time are James Tracy and Jim Fetzer, who do write and speak the truth.
It reflects well on a university to keep a professor who maintains his unpopular views. It reflects poorly on a university when it bows to public pressure and fires a professor.

The vast majority of lawyers like to pretend we’re not in a police state. After all, if they did recognize what it is, they would have to do something about it.
I am a prof
And I’m afraid
To question those
From whom I’m paid.
To drag this land
Toward Nazi hell.

I’m convinced folks, with what evidence I’ve gathered through the years of research and factual evidence, that we are in Hitler’s dream of a “Fourth Reich” in America run by psychopaths. Germany didn’t entirely lose WWII, Nazi scientists were moved (Operation Paperclip) from Germany to America. History is repeating itself again.
