The 06/12/13 Joy Jar

11 Jun


Yesterday’s ‘Joy Jar’ was to give thanks for being human. Humans have a wide variety of characteristics from they walk with Angels to satan wouldn’t have them in the family because they are so evil. The best human qualities form a tapestry called humane. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the quality of being humane.

What do you regard as most humane? To spare someone shame.
Friedrich Nietzsche

It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.
Cesar Chavez

With reasonable men, I will reason; with humane men I will plead; but to tyrants I will give no quarter, nor waste arguments where they will certainly be lost.
William Lloyd Garrison

One can not be just if one is not humane.
Luc de Clapiers

An interface is humane if it is responsive to human needs and considerate of human frailties.
Jef Raskin

One can not be just if one is not humane.

Moi went to a NASA exhibit at the Pacific Science Center in Seattle which looked at the history and importance of the space station and space exploration. A major reason some support space exploration is that they want to plant humans as a species all over the universe. That got moi thinking about whether there is something unique about being human. Today’s deposit into the ‘Joy Jar’ is the quality of being human.

The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection.
George Orwell

There is some kind of a sweet innocence in being human- in not having to be just happy or just sad- in the nature of being able to be both broken and whole, at the same time.”
C. JoyBell C.

The world was made up of people putting one foot in front of the other; and a life might appear ordinary simple because the person living it had been doing so for a long time. Harold could no longer pass a stranger without acknowledging the truth that everyone was the same, and also unique; and that this was the dilemma of being human.”
Rachel Joyce,
The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry

This is good, life must continue, we are fighting barbarians, but we must remain human.”
David Benioff, City of Thieves

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

I am not a human being; I am a human becoming.
