Answer . Thomas Merton (1915-1968) French-American Roman Catholic monk, poet . If I had a message to my contemporaries, I said, it was surely this: Be anything you like, be madmen, drunks, and bastards of every shape and form, but at all costs avoid one thing: success.... If you have learned o…nly how to be a success, your life has probably been wasted. If a university concentrates on producing successful people, it is lamentably failing in its obligation to society and to the students themselves. -- Thomas Merton , quoted in James E Kiefer, " Thomas Merton, Monk, Poet, Spiritual Writer ". The danger of education, I have found, is that it so easily confuses means with ends.

The most awful tyranny is that of the proximate utopia where the last sins are currently being eliminated and where, tomorrow, there will be no sins because all the sinners have been wiped out. -- Thomas Merton (1948), quoted from Laird Wilcox, ed., " The Degeneration of Belief " (MORE)

And also for writing the pa…mphlet common sense. In the pamphlet he said every human being is born with the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. (MORE)
The ultimate goal of a teacher is for the student to have no need for a teacher. Over time the teacher becomes less and less needed and one day, not needed at all.. This is because a good teacher not only imparts information, but teaches how to learn and find information.

Those against the dropping of the atomic bomb point out that Japan was near to surrendering anyway. They explain that the fierce resistance the USA was experiencing was Japan's final efforts. They identify that the dropping of the bomb on Hiroshima was basically an attack on the civilian population …who had no hope of survival.

A second bomb was dropped a week later - a different type of bomb - some suggest that this is proof it was more of an experiment than anything else. Most significantly hundreds of thousands suffered radiation poisoning as a result of the bomb - even those not born at the time. (MORE)

OBVIOUS ANSWER I believe the obvious common sense answer would be a definitive no. Faith includes the whole picture, and therefore, it would almost certainly be an impetus toward 'good works', at its basest meaning; if only to ensure that all the 'bases are covered', the 'i's are dotted and the T's …crossed' - and every possible explanation given where the right answer is always the simplest. No. Good works are always necessary. :-))) Daniel Longcrown (MORE)
