I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we’re upset by the seasons of our economy.

~Gordon Gekko, Wall Street (1987)

Science Fiction Writers

4.
We have trained them to think of the Future as a promised land which favoured heroes attain—not as something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is.
~C.S. Lewis, The Screwtape Letters (1942). C.S. Lewis, in full Clive Staples Lewis (born 1898, Belfast, Ireland [now in Northern Ireland]—died November 22, 1963, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England), Irish-born scholar, novelist, and author of about 40 books, most of them on Christian apologetics, the most widely known being The Screwtape Letters. He also achieved fame with a trilogy of science-fiction novels and with the Chronicles of Narnia, a series of seven children’s books that have become classics of fantasy literature.

5.
Is it credible that our world should have two futures? I have seen them. Two entirely distinct futures lie before mankind, one dark, one bright; one the defeat of all man’s hopes, the betrayal of all his ideals, the other their hard-won triumph.
~Olaf Stapledon, Darkness and the Light (1942)

6.
We live in reference to past experience and not to future events, however inevitable.
~H. G. Wells, Mind at the End of Its Tether (1946). Herbert George Wells (September 21, 1866 – 1946) was a British writer best known for his science fiction novels such as The War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, and The Time Machine; also for Kipps, The History of Mr. Polly and other social satires.
7.
How could you communicate with the future? It was of its nature impossible. Either the future would resemble the present, in which case it would not listen to him: or it would be different from it, and his predicament would be meaningless.
~George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). George Orwell (1903 – 1950) was the pen name of British novelist, essayist, and journalist Eric Arthur Blair.

 

January 2: “The President” by Day Williams

THE PRESIDENT

 

To lead a nation means to sacrifice

The private life, where joy and calm increase,

For open hell and public paradise,

With every word and act a centerpiece.

 

The President‘s an anchor and a light,

The man who executes the rules and codes,

Commander of the military might,

A guard of freedom, pioneer of roads.

 

Without a vision people fall and die,

Without good leaders nations will decay,

But when the trust’s in God, He’ll multiply

His blessings to the people’s work and play.

 

May God provide a ruler to preside

With dreams and deeds that push the past aside.
