THE MEEK SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH

A man is born gentle and weak.
At his death he is hard and stiff.
Green plants are tender and filled with sap.
At their death they are withered and dry.

Therefore the stiff and unbending is the disciple of death.
The gentle and yielding is the disciple of life.

Thus an army without flexibility never wins a battle.
A tree that is unbending is easily broken.

The hard and strong will fall.
The soft and weak will overcome.

~Tao Te Ching

The Value of Science
Richard Feynman included a poem in his address to the National Academy of Sciences:

I stand at the seashore, alone, and start to think.

There are the rushing waves
mountains of molecules
each stupidly minding its own business
trillions apart
yet forming white surf in unison

Ages on ages
before any eyes could see
year after year
thunderously pounding the shore as now.
For whom, for what?
On a dead planet
with no life to entertain.

Never at rest
tortured by energy
wasted prodigiously by the Sun
poured into space.
A mite makes the sea roar.

Deep in the sea
all molecules repeat
the patterns of one another
till complex new ones are formed.
They make others like themselves
and a new dance starts.
Growing in size and complexity
living things
masses of atoms
DNA, protein
dancing a pattern ever more intricate.

Out of the cradle
onto dry land
here it is
standing:
atoms with consciousness;
matter with curiosity.

Stands at the sea,
wonders at wondering: I
a universe of atoms
an atom in the Universe

Aurora borealis seen from the International Space Station.

The aurora borealis (northern lights) are caused by charged particles from the Sun interacting with the upper atmosphere. These solar particles are accelerated by the Earth's magnetic field towards the geomagnetic poles where they ionize gases in the atmosphere and produce light.

#3. Live in the now. “Our minds are so busy, and with the evolution of technology, we are now connected 24/7. We never switch off. As a result, we are spending less time in the present. Our thoughts are consumed with rehashing the past or worrying about the future. The past has gone and we cannot change it, and the future never arrives. The only time we have is now—the present—and of course, this is life.” ~Jess Stuart
This is the age of making a living, often at the cost of making a life. What really makes us happy, and how do we find it? This may help.
