a break

Tomorrow morning I'm off for Kauai and Maui for 8 days. It will be a welcome break. Normally before I visit someplace I "study up" on it--learn its culture, its history, even its geography. I've been so busy the last couple of weeks (in spite of having graduated) that I haven't had a chance. I'll be cramming on the airplane.

Today I did an interview with WTVD which will air sometime before the Race for the Cure on 14 June, and also did a group interview over speakerphone with a reporter from the Wall Street Journal. After the drill of last week, talking on camera really isn't bad at all. Basically, the key is to ignore it completely and just address your interviewer. And like most news reporters, she had the smoothness, and drawn-out, comforting intonation that makes having a conversation in spite of lights and camera easy.

I guess I'm a media slut to some extent because I really don't mind doing this stuff at all.

Still, it will be nice to stretch out on a sandy, Pacific beach watching the cerulean waves roll in, reading the American College of Surgeons' Advanced Trauma Life Support, 1997 Edition.

To the philosophical eye the vices of the clergy are far less dangerous than their virtues.

If you're not shocked by quantum theory, then you don't understand it.

God may be understood to be similar to a lifeguard who sees a drowning child and, although perfectly capable of saving the unfortunate waif, does nothing and lets her drown.

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

One should respect public opinion in so far as is necessary to avoid starvation and to keep out of prison, but anything that goes beyond this is voluntary submission to an unnecessary tyranny.

The safest general characterisation of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.

Society is indeed a contract...it becomes a partnership not only between those who are living, but between those who are living, those who are dead, and those who are to be born.

Man is by his constitution a religious animal; atheism is against not only our reason, but our instincts.

The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a human heart. One must imagine that Sisyphus is happy.

Man was made for action, and to promote by the exertion of his faculties such changes in the external circumstances both of himself and others, as may seem most favourable to the happiness of all.
