As America’s mental courage (the thought comes to me today) is so indebted, above all current lands and peoples, to the noble army of old-world martyrs past, how incumbent on us that we clear those martyrs’ lives and names, and hold them up for reverent admiration as well as beacons. And typical of this, and standing for it and all perhaps, Giordano Bruno may well be put, today and to come, in our New World’s thankfulest heart and memory.”
— Walt Whitman, Writer and Poet
Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”

We all have come from infinity,
We all live within infinity,
We shall return to infinity,
We are all manifestation of one infinity,
We are all brothers and sisters of One Infinite Universe,
Let us love each other,
Let us help each other,
Let us encourage each other,
Let us all together continue to realize
The endless dream of one peaceful world,
We are always one forever.”
— Michio Kushi, Macrobiotics
