I have always believed that Jesus meant by the Kingdom of God the small group scattered all through time of intellectually and ethically valuable people.

Albert Einstein
Righteousness is the religion of the Kingdom of Heaven & even the property of God himself towards man. Righteousness & Love are inseparable for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.

Isaac Newton



Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

~ Reinhold Niebuhr ~

Everything is interesting if you go into it deeply enough.

~ Richard Feynman ~

'Tis the gift to be simple, 'tis the gift to be free,
'Tis the gift to come down where we ought to be,
And when we find ourselves in the place just right,
'Twill be in the valley of love and delight.

When true simplicity is gain'd
To bow and to bend we shan't be asham'd,
To turn, turn will be our delight
'Till by turning, turning we come round right.

~ Joseph Brackett ~

Task lists


WORK on MUCH needed MAJOR overhauls of introductory pages and policy pages within the next few months. (2015·01·08)
EXPAND Dimensions quotes…
"image Credits" section and/or page or pages, as suggested by an editor on my talk page.
Create "Creation/Creativity" as distinct page apart from Invention and Creationism
Non-violence as a distinct page.
Do page for I've Heard the Mermaids Singing — I do intend to start a page this, but there is only one quote on line I can find, which is used, and I did not have time to do transcriptions today, as I had hoped. Will probably do some within a few days ~ Kalki·· 02:00, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
EXPLORE newer options available through inter-wiki MediaWiki links and tracking, such as MediaWiki:Histlegend

Indexing work to do

I usually choose a quote or two when adding these, I simply haven't got around to that yet... (and some of the "significantly worked on" might already be listed, I simply haven't checked on that yet...)

Add to Kalki index as Created:

  1. Abdullah II of Jordan ·
  2. J. J. Abrams ·
  3. Acceptance · Dispose thy Soul to all good and necessary things! ~ Pythagoras · A mind of von Neumann's inexorable logic had to understand and accept much that most of us do not want to accept and do not even wish to understand. ~ Eugene Wigner
  4. Ahimsa · By anarchy I mean first an absolute rejection of violence. ~ Jacques Ellul
  5. Aikido ·
  6. Antichrist ·
  7. Apology · Pro-corporate apologists — hijacked the vocabulary of Jeffersonian liberalism and turned words like "progress," "opportunity," and "individualism" into tools for making the plunder of America sound like divine right. ~ Bill Moyers
  8. Avengers: Age of Ultron ·
  9. Awe ·
  10. Baldr ·
  11. Robert Barclay · God Almighty, who hath so signally hitherto visited thee with his love, so touch and reach thy heart, ere the day of thy visitation be expired, that thou mayest effectually turn to him so as to improve thy place and station for his name.
  12. James Lee Barrett ·
  13. Baseball · Baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come. ~ Field of Dreams
  14. Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ·
  15. Luc Besson · Life was given to us a billion years ago. What have we done with it?
  16. Bowdoin College ·

    I would like an abundance of peace.
  21. Caution · Your spiritual teachers caution you against enquiry — tell you not to read certain books; not to listen to certain people; to beware of profane learning; to submit your reason, and to receive their doctrines for truths. Such advice renders them suspicious counsellors. ~ Frances Wright
  22. Kenneth Chenault ·
  23. Eleanor Clift ·

    In the light of day!
    Let the storm rage on!
    The cold never bothered me anyway!

  25. Completeness · We have established complete liberty of conscience, and, in consequence, a complete liberty for mental activity. All free and daring souls have before them a well-nigh limitless opening for endeavor of any kind. ~ Theodore Roosevelt
  26. Control · The paramount question of the day is not political, is not religious, but is economic. The crying-out demand of today is for a circle of principles that shall forever make it impossible for one man to control another by controlling the means of his existence. ~ Voltairine de Cleyre
  27. Complexity · The world is complex. That complexity is beautiful. I love trying to understand how things work. But that's because there's something to be learned from mastering that complexity. ~ Ward Cunningham

  29. Connection ·
  30. Destruction · You cannot seek Destruction and return unscathed. ~ Neil Gaiman in The San∂man
  31. Dimension · My volition shrinks from the painful task of recalling my humiliation; yet, like a second Prometheus, I will endure this and worse, if by any means I may arouse in the interiors of Plane and Solid Humanity a spirit of rebellion against the Conceit which would limit our Dimensions to Two or Three or any number short of Infinity. ~ Edwin Abbott Abbott
  32. Doctor Strange ·
  33. Doug Dorst ·
  34. Drink · Here are your waters and your watering place.
    Drink and be whole again beyond confusion.
    ~ Robert Frost
  35. Earthquake · Opinions have caused more ills than the plague or earthquakes on this little globe of ours. ~ Voltaire
  36. Elijah · Thou hast asked a hard thing: nevertheless, if thou see me when I am taken from thee, it shall be so unto thee; but if not, it shall not be so.
  37. Empathy · Wouldn`t it be wonderful if we could all be a little more gentle with each other, and a little more loving, have a little more empathy, and maybe we'd like each other a little bit more. ~ Judy Garland
  38. Enlightenment (spiritual) · Neither fire, nor moisture, nor wind
    can destroy the blessing of good deeds,
    and blessings enlighten the whole world. ~ Gautama Buddha

  40. Equinox
  41. Ethical movement · Without "ethical culture," there is no salvation for humanity. ~ Albert Einstein
  42. Eve · After all these years I see that I was mistaken about Eve in the beginning; it is better to live outside the Garden with her than inside it without her. ~ Mark Twain
  43. Freethought · Every notion that any man, dead, living, or unborn, might form as to the universe will necessarily prove wrong. ~ James Branch Cabell
  44. Galaxy · Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another. ~ Carl Sagan
  45. Ganesha · Symbolically, Ganesha represents the basic unity of the macrocosm and microcosm, the immense being (the elephant) and the individual being (man). ~ Alain Daniélou
  46. Julie Gold · From a distance there is harmony
    And it echoes through the land
    And it's the hope of hopes, it's the love of loves
    It's the heart of every man.
  47. Amy Grant · Believing in the one thing
    That has gotten us this far —

    That's what love is for
    To help us through it
    That's what love is for
    Nothing else can do it
    Melt our defenses
    Bring us back to our senses
    Give us strength to try once more
    Baby, that's what love is for.

  48. Grok · Grok means to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed — to merge, blend, intermarry, lose identity in group experience. It means almost everything that we mean by religion, philosophy, and science — and it means as little to us (because of our Earthling assumptions) as color means to a blind man. ~ Robert A. Heinlein
  49. Guardians of the Galaxy (2008 team) · I don't know if this team will work or not. All I know is it MUST. Time is critical. I see clearly now why I've been reborn. We haven't got long. Years if we're lucky, months if we're not. ~ Adam Warlock
  50. Guardians of the Galaxy (film) · I was only a kid when I left Earth, and I had no idea what the universe had in store for me. · It's time we stand up for what is right.

  53. High Plains Drifter · Somebody left the door open and the wrong dogs came home.
  54. Holy Spirit · As we study the Scriptures, we should pray for the light of God's Holy Spirit to shine upon the word, that we may see and appreciate its treasures. ~ Ellen G. White
  55. Hui Shi · Let love embrace the ten thousand things; Heaven and earth are a single body.
  56. Humankind (USA Today) ·
  57. Idolatry · There is a great difference between the Idols of the human mind and the Ideas of the divine. That is to say, between certain empty dogmas, and the true signatures and marks set upon the works of creation as they are found in nature. ~ Francis Bacon
  58. Importance · There's something you better understand about me 'cause it's important and one day your life may depend on it. … I am definitely a mad man with a box. ~ Eleventh incarnation of the Doctor
  59. Interstellar (film) · Love is the one thing that transcends time and space.
  60. John of Bohemia‎‎ · I require you bring me so far forward, that I may strike one stroke with my sword.
  61. Jean de Florette ·
  62. Jean Jullien ·
  63. Jungle · We are all made of the same stuff, remember, we of the Jungle, you of the City. The same substance composes us — the tree overhead, the stone beneath us, the bird, the beast, the starwe are all one, all moving to the same end. Remember that when you no longer remember me, my child. ~ P. L. Travers
  64. Kairos · Our task is to serve the logos out of the depths of our new kairos, a kairos that is now emerging in the crises and catastrophes of our day. Hence, the more deeply we understand fate — our own personal fate and that of our society — the more our intellectual work will have power and truth. ~ Paul Tillich
  65. Krzysztof Kieślowski ·
  66. Louis L'Amour
  67. Laniakea Supercluster · For the first time, astronomers have outlined and named the network of galaxies that includes the Milky Way, adding a line to our cosmic address and further defining our place in the universe. They call it Laniakea, which is Hawaiian for “immense heaven.” ~ Douglas Quenqua

    Come out of your half-dreamed dream
    And run, if you will, to the top of the hill
    Open your arms, bonnie Jean.
  75. Brian McNaughton ·
  76. Milarepa · Do not spend your life committing sinful deeds;
    It is good for you to practice holy Dharma.
  77. Mob · A mob is a society of bodies voluntarily bereaving themselves of reason, and traversing its work. The mob is man voluntarily descending to the nature of the beast. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
  78. Monster ·
  79. Graham Moore (writer) · Stay weird, stay different — and then, when it’s your turn, and you are standing on this stage, please pass the same message to the next person who comes along.
  80. Motion · Something in the way she moves
    attracts me like no other lover…

+ significantly worked upon:

  1. About Time (2013 film) · I think I've learned the final lesson from my travels in time; and I've even gone one step further than my father did: The truth is I now don't travel back at all, not even for the day, I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the full final day of my extraordinary, ordinary life.
  2. Adnan Oktar · The proponents of violence are killing Muslims and they are killing Christians, they are killing Jews as well; they are enemies to everyone.

  5. Alec Baldwin · I want to be a ferocious liberal.
  6. Apocrypha · Great is truth, and mighty above all things.

  8. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang · Never say "no" to adventures. Always say "yes", otherwise you'll lead a very dull life.
  9. Edward de Bono · Rightness is what matters in vertical thinking. Richness is what matters in lateral thinking.

    What a terrible thing to lose.
  11. Ian Fleming · I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.

    To say we know the reason why
    Some are born, some men die,
    Beneath one infinite sky?
  13. Zane Grey · To bear up under loss — to fight the bitterness of defeat and the weakness of grief — to be victor over anger — to smile when tears are close — to resist evil men and base instincts — to hate hate and to love love — to go on when it would seem good to die — to seek ever after the glory and the dream — to look up with unquenchable faith in something evermore about to be — that is what any man can do, and so be great.
  14. Scarlett Johansson · I read a lot of things about myself that aren't true … I've read that I've been with people I've never met.

  19. Jack Monroe · Food poverty comes in two strands. The first is not having enough money to buy food for yourself and your family. The second is poverty of education.

Scrap pad


In a three-minute stretch between commercials, or in seven hundred words, it is impossible to present unfamiliar thoughts or surprising conclusions with the argument and evidence required to afford them credibility. Regurgitation of welcome pieties faces no such problem.

~ Noam Chomsky ~



The free man will ask neither what his country can do for him nor what he can do for his country. He will ask rather "What can I and my compatriots do through government" to help us discharge our individual responsibilities, to achieve our several goals and purposes, and above all, to protect our freedom? And he will accompany this question with another: How can we keep the government we create from becoming a Frankenstein that will destroy the very freedom we establish it to protect? Freedom is a rare and delicate plant. Our minds tell us, and history confirms, that the great threat to freedom is the concentration of power. Government is necessary to preserve our freedom, it is an instrument through which we can exercise our freedom; yet by concentrating power in political hands, it is also a threat to freedom. Even though the men who wield this power initially be of good will and even though they be not corrupted by the power they exercise, the power will both attract and form men of a different stamp.

~ Milton Friedman ~

I'm going to work hard not to have any wrong thoughts!
~ A child in The Children's Story ~
~ James Clavell ~

I ever seek to increase proper forms of respect for human individuals and legitimate forms of human society and social interactions. I do not seek to promote any of the worst and foulest forms of human confusion, ignorance and fear, nor promote any admiration for corruptions of the ideals of humanity which can come about through many forms of ignorance and confusion, such as those involved in various mild and minor or major and murderous forms of tyranny or terrorism.
I promote a forgiveness of those who fall into many forms of error, but I also assert that errors, especially those which ignore the principles of Justice and Liberty, should be opposed, and opposed regularly and vigorously. I am well aware that those with very limited and constrained forms of imagination, intelligence and ideas OFTEN wish to find ways to constrain or control the ideas of others, and to suppress, punish and destroy any indications of such ideas or truths as might go beyond the bounds which their fragile or fearful little minds find comfortable to face, usually without being too obvious about it, and with exaggerating focus on such regulations and policies "for the good" of everyone they choose to find worthy of consideration — which is usually a VERY limited circle, and such as can serve their own aims — often with an extreme ignorance, denial or dismissal of such principles upon which any truly legitimate "policies" must be founded. Even as a young child I recognized that so-called social interactions that depended upon various forms of dishonesty were not truly "social" at all — but actually, at best, "semi-social" and more often truly "anti-social", no matter what kindly generous appearances people might wish to garnish their own bigotries and extreme prejudices with.
I am genuinely not prone to be harsh to those not being deliberately harsh to others — and yet I am certainly not always prone to be gentle with those I perceive being needlessly harsh, intolerant or cruel to anyone. Even though I might forgive their ignorance and confusion, I will not always choose to pardon them from confrontations with aspects or consequences of their errors, that they might prefer not to face. I am a very complex person — and I respect others as such too — and I know that any mandated erasures or ignoring of all differences that might exist is certainly NOT a genuinely healthy answer to the problems of various forms of social and anti-social contentions. In this project and elsewhere I intend to help make many ideas of those I consider the most wise and charitable of human beings far better known and adequately understood by many — and indicate applicabilities which I believe can be helpful. This year has just begun, but I have many ideas of how to occupy my time in coming months, and am always prepared to adapt and grow with new circumstances, as any healthy individual usually is, and any healthy human endeavors always are. So it goes... ~ Kalki·· 12:19, 22 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

We shall not grow wiser before we learn that much that we have done was very foolish.
~ Friedrich Hayek ~

some images deleted from Baruch Spinoza

some of the images deleted from Baruch Spinoza, removed some months ago, some of which I might eventually restore, but have many other things to attend to today and in coming weeks. ~ Kalki·· 19:04, 13 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

Most of these which had been here have now been restored to the Spinoza page or to Ethics (book), which had been an overly large portion of the page, and had been moved some time after the images were removed. Some I simply replaced with other available images. Of the 2 images I have retained here, only the one with the Borges quote has not been restored, because there is currently not enough room for it in its section, and I believe other images currently there are generally preferable. ~ Kalki·· 11:42, 30 January 2014 (UTC) + tweaks

Actually there is sufficient room there, except in extremely wide page widths — but I will probably wait for more text in that section before possibly restoring it, or replacing it with another. ~ Kalki·· 11:46, 30 January 2014 (UTC)
The mightiest love was granted him
Love that does not expect to be loved. ~ Jorge Luis Borges
How much do I love that noble man
More than I could tell with words
I fear though he'll remain alone
With a holy halo of his own. ~ Albert Einstein

Starry Night options

some images deleted from Sri Chinmoy

These were removed from the Sri Chinmoy page, and knowing he apparently had some objections to gay lifestyles, I can agree to keep them removed, though I believe they illustrate some aspects of his statements well. I will seek some other less controversial images to use with the captions ~ Kalki·· 12:51, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
In my philosophy everyone, including the poor, sick and aged, belongs to one familyGod’s Family.
Unless and until you have developed a heart inundated with compassion, do not sit on the seat of judgement.


Very early in my life, by the time I was 5 or 6, the Essays of Michel de Montaigne and various thoughts upon them had inspired me, and even then I had in mind ideas of creating short essays largely built around significant quotes and their various interpretations, and I will probably eventually begin filling many of user pages with quotes about various ideas and concepts, and a few relevant comments about them. "We've only just begun…" ;)


Barnstar Bank — just getting this started… will probably develop it with brief comments on their significance within the coming weeks.

Every person who is seeing me now — some are seeing me within months of my saying this, some are likely to see this years after I have said this, but whenever all of you are seeing it — that will be the moment you’re seeing it — as this is the moment I’m saying it. And what that means to me is: living in the moment. The moment between past and present, or present and past. The moment between after and next, the hammock in the middle of after and next. The moment. Treasure it. Use it with love.
~ Norman Lear ~
Let your love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.

Then, as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Your life will bring heaven to earth.
~ Gautama Buddha ~
LOVE is anterior to life,
Posterior to death,
Initial of creation, and
The exponent of breath.
~ Emily Dickinson ~
Can a man who's warm understand one who's freezing?
~ Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ~
In a work of art, however modest, the peculiar character of life is always reflected in the fact that it has no parts which keep their qualitative identity in isolation. In the simplest design, the virtual constituents are indivisible, and inalienable from the whole.
