What does this quote mean as long as the mind is enslaved the body can never be free?
It means that your mind is enslaved (trapped) in matter which is what your body is made of. Your body can not be free as long as mind is trapped in matter, because mind equals spirit, and mind is the cause and matter is the manifest of spirit. Everything you see in the temporal world was created from the invisible.

Minds are like parachutes... . An open mind is a mind that is non-judging, open to new thoughts, ways of doing things. That does not see obstacles but opportunities.. Open mind in action . Before you think about the meaning of this quote, you need to be clear of some terms that seem to be qui…te obvious, but they aren't: . What is a parachute? . What is mind? . What is the difference between a closed and an open parachute . This brings us to the question: What is an open mind? . A parachute is usually a soft fabric device used to slow the motion of an object through an atmosphere by creating drag.. Mind collectively refers to the aspects of intellect and consciousness manifested as combinations of thought, perception, memory, emotion, will and imagination. An open parachute is obviously "in action" or "used" and function, while a parachute is closed when not in use. The quote "Minds are like parachutes[...]" means that there can be a functional and disfunctional mind (compared to a closed and open parachute). Tommy Deware, who is the author of this quote, states that only an open mind is a mind that is really functioning. You can make your own sense to what an open mind is (see also previous answer).

What does the quote 'To educate a person in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society' mean?
This famous quote by Theodore Roosevelt is in fact very clear: A person without moral education (mainly by parents as well as schooling) tends to act selfish and is likely to disregard the consequences of his/her actions on the others and general welfare of the society. However, as we almost always …live with other people, it is essential to have a moral understanding of our actions and the potential outcome. Consider the example: One business owner has a moral understanding, another has not. The one without morals is more likely to not pay his/her taxes. However, it is a common duty for everyone to pay taxes fully all the time. Without tax income, government is likely to stop functioning. Imagine the police force, firefighters or army suddenly ceased to exist! Those functions rely on tax income. A person with morals considers this scenario before considering tax fraud. A person without it simply says "what the heck..." Hope this helps. I believe this quote can be seen both ways; " to educate a person in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society." Yes taxes are very important, but think about this. This country was founded on moral teachings, but what makes something moral. Everyone has their own morals, it depends on the person you are. I think this quote means to begin to think critically, and not shoot things down because someone has said what ever you are talking about is immoral. The part "menace to society" well you would become a menace because you are abnormal. People are not used to or comfortable, so they automatically assume it must be bad. But not always.

The world will little note nor long remember what you say here but it can never forget what you did here what does this quote mean?
Answer . You have misquoted Mr. Lincoln, Abraham, that is. He said, "The world will little note nor long remember what we say here but it can never forget what they did here." He was speaking at Gettysburg on November 19, 1863 just after the Union had won the battle of Gettysburg. This battle to…ok place from July 1, 1863 through July 3, 1863 and is seen as the turning point of the war. Union Gereal Meade and his forces defeated Robert E Lee and his forces. 51,000 men lost their lives in the process. It is they to whom Lincoln refers when he says, "it (the world) can never forget what they did here." By saying what he says, Lincoln is redefining the purpose of the War. Here is his entire speech.. "Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."

It means that in order to be truly free you need to be in full control of yourself and not governed by wild and woolly emotions. . ANSWER: . Freedom brings great responsibility as there are always consequence to our actions.

What J W Goethe meant by this quote is probably this: If the enslaved are aware of the fact that they are enslaved, the system is practically unsustainable and there are many good examples in history. The enslaved have strong incentive to rise against their slavers and the slavers have to guard t…hem 24/7. There are big expenses for the slavers just to keep the slaves calm and the system has to break sooner or later. But if the enslaved believe they are free, they have no reason to rise against the slavers, since they don't know there are any slavers at all. Thus the slavers don't have to worry about their safety and all they need to do is to make sure the slaves still think they are free. Such a system is sustainable for eternity. Therefore the people are "more hopelessly enslaved", because there is no hope to be set free. As an example, we can take a dictatorship-like Cuba or Iran-and a democracy-like the USA or Germany. In Cuba, most people are angry and hate Fidel Castro, because they are aware of the fact that they are enslaved. People try to escape from Cuba and there were many attempts to kill Castro. This is clearly unsustainable, the communist government will cease to exist sooner or later. In democratic states, on the other hand, people believe they are free. The slavers strenghten this feeling by setting up "elections" (which makes the people believe they can change something), comparing themselves to dictatorships, dragging people's minds to different problems through media etc. When you look at reality, you can see that democracies have no problem with upkeeping the system.

Sayings can be interpreted in many ways. "There are lazy minds aswell as lazy bodies" means that there are people who will not workbody or mind.
What Jean-Jacques Rousseau meant is that government, social class,wealth and poverty are man-made prisons in which people trap eachother. In the "state of nature" to which we are all born, thosethings do not exist. Remember that in his day there were nodemocracies to speak of. People everywhere were… ruled by absolutemonarchs whose word was law. Rousseau does not go so far as toclaim that simple good manners, altruism and general decentbehavior are also prisons, although some libertarian philosopherscertainly have gone that far. Born free merely means not born into slavery, but it is arguablewhether anyone is "born free." We are all enslaved by society tosome degree. As a child we are at the mercy of our parents and teachers. Ourparents can screw us up so easily with wrong food, wrong support,wrong advice, etc. Our teachers can fill our minds with the wrongideas and knowledge. But we have to do what they say. Later we mayhave to serve in the army, whether we want to or not. When they sayjump you say "Yessir. How high, sir?" As adults we have to work 9to 5 five days a week for a boss to earn money to live. This meansdoing what we're told by the boss. At all times we are expected toobey thousands of laws, most of which we don't even know exist. Ifwe don't we can lose our liberty. To travel we are searched andhave to carry a passport. So freedom is not as easily come by asall that. All of these things are "chains" of one sort or another.By saying that one is in chains one may think that even though weare free here in America, we still have to follow the laws of thecountry. If you read Rousseau's 1st and 2nd Discourses and The SocialContract (and even add Emile in there) it becomes clear that whileRousseau is definitely talking about social and politicalinstitutions and laws, he is actually talking about something muchmore fundamental, and particularly in the context of his idea onthe origin of human morality. The chains that Rousseau is talkingabout are Human Convention: all thosesocial and political norms that man has created as a result of, andin order to live harmoniously in society with other men.

Those who are slaves will eventually become so desperate for freedom that they will fight, and if necessary, die for it. People fight for their freedom because they are tired of being slaves. If a slave allows himself to be falsely convinced he is already free, then in his mind, he has nothing to fi…ght for. If you think about it, we convince ourselves of things that aren't true all the time. If you do something wrong your conscience tells you to admit it and make it right, but if you are afraid of the consequences you will simply silence your conscience by convincing yourself that what you did wasn't really that wrong. It was still wrong. Similarly, if you are a slave, but are too afraid of what might happen when you stand up and fight for your freedom, you can simply convince yourself that you are already free. You're still a slave. If you do not realize you're a slave, you will never defy your master. ( Full Answer )

Giving someone your mind body and soul is exactly what it sounds like. Submission to their will. Their wants, whims, desires, however you'd like to phrase it. It's submission.

And when you let their spiritual views become your own, they've entered your spirit and you've given them your soul. You've submitted yourself to them to be shaped how they will. ( Full Answer )

It meant that the British Empire was so huge and covered so many parts of the globe that it was always daylight somewhere in the empire. The British Empire used to be so big that countries all over the world were occupied by the British. So during every minute of every day the sun was above the h…orizon and shining on a country somewhere in the world that was owned by Britain. At its peak, the British Empire had territories all over the globe, so it was always daytime somewhere in the empire. This was a saying refering to the fact that Britain had colonies all around the world. So as the earth rotated the Sun continually shone on British territory. In the 19th century, especially during the Victorian era, the phrase resurged, when it became popular to apply it to the British Empire a time when British world maps showed the empire in red or pink to vividly highlight British imperial power spanning the globe. The 19th-century politician Lord Salisbury complained that the Â£1.5 million spent on colonial defence by Britain in 1861 merely enabled the nation "to furnish an agreeable variety of stations to our soldiers, and to indulge in the sentiment that the sun never sets on our Empire". A Sri Lankan news source credits Colvin R. de Silva with coining the response: "That's because God does not trust the British in the dark". It was originally used in Spain, before Britain, especially when the Portuguese and the Spanish empire were united under the same crown. Latterly its been used to refer to American property. Such as the countries where it has a military presence as it actually has no empire. The British Empire is the largest ever Empire in the history of mankind, it spanned 13,000,000 square miles. India, was during this epoch referred to as " THE JEWEL IN THE CROWN" Also for those who do not know, which is a surprising and shamefull lot, Britain is made up of Scotland, England and Wales. England has the highest population, followed by Scotland then Wales. In most cases, people think of England as the whole island of Britain, this is wrong. As a proud British and English person, i would duly like the world to know exactly what countries make the best nation on Earth. [in my opinion :-) From Pepe - South Africa It's common knowledge that the British had illegally occupied many countries around the world in the past and still doing so at present and whenever Britain would be in dire need of certain commodities which Britain lacked or didn't have as such, Britain would extract those commodities by hook or by crook from those illegally occupied countries and forward them to Britain where it's people would enjoy the benefit thereof at the expense of those whose countries the British had illegally occupied. No matter when the need arises Britain will get it from somewhere somehow! History has proven it time and over again. Britain has gone to the extent of partnering the US,another oppressive country, and together they form a coalition whereby they keep on looting the world whenever in need of. Recently they occupied Afghanistan and Iraq not to ward off the Taliban nor to fight terrorism or even so not to get rid of Saddam Hussain but to get petrol out of those countries which Britain and the US are so much in desperate need of. Pepe Under the pseudonym Christopher North, writer John Wilson composed a serious of articles for a long-running column called "Noctes Ambrosianae."Wilson as North wrote, "His Majesty's dominions, on which the sun never sets," which was changed to the more user-friendly, "the sun never sets on the British Empire." Not quite right. It is that the Sun never sets on the British Empire. The Empire was so far reaching around the world that at one time or another it always shone in New Zealand, Australia or India or Africa or in the Caribbean or the Americas. I think it is important to say that the British Empire is now a historical fact, replaced by the Commonwealth. I accept that it had its faults, but also it had merit. Of all the nations that have had an effect on this, modern, world the British have played their part. I hope you will not be too ready to condemn us for our role, there have been worse Imperial masters. the sun never sets on the British empire means there are so many countries and so many countries and cities British empire that if the sun ever sets on one country it rises on another that is why people say the sun never sets on the British empire ( Full Answer )
