"A partial explanation for the lack of empathy in autism may be due to an oversensitive nervous system that prevents an autistic child from receiving the comforting tactile stimulation that comes from being hugged."

"The reactions of an autistic child to touch and a wild horse may be similar. […] There are two methods that can be used tame a wild horse: 1) forced holding and 2) gradual taming. Both methods work."

"Thinking in language and words is alien to me. I think totally in pictures. It is like playing different tapes in a video cassette recorder in my imagination.

"Outbursts of aggression in autistic teenagers and adults are sometimes caused by frontal or temporal lobe seizures. These seizures (epileptic episodes) are often difficult to detect on an EEG (Gedye 1989, 1991). Seizures should be suspected if the rages occur totally at random."

5.4 Anglican churches

  • C. S. Lewis: Mere Christiani

"Now that I come to think of it, I remember Christian teachers telling me long ago that I must hate a bad man's actions, but not hate the bad man: or, as they would say, hate the sin but not the sinner. For a long time I used to think this a silly, straw-splitting distinction: how could you hate what a man did and not hate the man? But years later it occurred to me that there was one man to whom I had been doing this all my life-namely myself. However much I might dislike my own cowardice or conceit or greed, I went on loving myself. There had never been the slightest difficulty about it. In fact the very reason why I hated the things was that I loved the man. Just because I loved myself, I was sorry to find that I was the sort of man who did those things. Consequently, Christianity does not want us to reduce by one atom the hatred we feel for cruelty and treachery. We ought to hate them. Not one word of what we have said about them needs to be unsaid. But it does want us to hate them in the same way in which we hate things in ourselves: being sorry that the man should have done such stand exactly what loving your neighbor as yourself means. I have to love him as I love myself."

  • Life in the Foreign Legion by Evan McGorman

  • Memoirs of the Foreign Legion (1924) by Maurice Magnus

"His mother was the illegitimate daughter of the German Kaiser: D-—says, of the old Kaiser Wilhelm I, Don Bernardo says, of Kaiser Frederick Wilhelm, father of the present ex-Kaiser. She was born in Berlin on the 31 October, 1845: and her portrait, by Paul, now hangs in a gallery in Rome. Apparently there had been some injustice against her in Berlin–for she seems once to have been in the highest society there, and to have attended at court. Perhaps she was discreetly banished by Wilhelm II, hence M-—s hatred of that monarch. She lies buried in the Protestant Cemetery in Rome, where she died in 1912, with the words Filia Régis on her tomb."

"Many a man had come here in the history of the Legion's existence who turned out to be murderer, embezzler, forger, or prince. It is not many years ago that a simple young man arrived, who had not much to say, and registered as John Smith, or some such name, and lived the life of a private soldier. He was a bit of a dullard, and not popular, and was generally avoided by every one, which he took very indifferently. Altogether he was very apathetic. After he had been in the Legion some time he fell ill, was taken to the hospital, and died. Two months after his death a German battleship arrived at Oran, and several high naval officers traveled to Bel-Abbès, and, with all due formality, asked the Colonel and authorities for the body of John Smith. John Smith was no other than a nephew of Emperor William II, and the body of the German Prince was transported with full military honours to Oran, and taken to Germany on His Majesty's cruiser. The times are countless, when a detective from some part of Europe has entered the Legions barracks, and, when the company was at dinner, has looked for his man, tapped him on the shoulder, motioned him to follow, and disappeared with him–no one ever knowing who he was, what he had done, or what became of him. I was never able to find out who the German Prince was, but I imagine it must have been one of the three sons of Prince Albrecht of Prussia, Regent of Brunswick, who had such unfortunate endings. They were the bêtes noires of the Kaiser. He literally hounded them to death, and wrecked each one's life–and incidentally confiscated their fortunes, which were reputed to be the largest of any of the Royal Princes. The last of the three, Prince Friedrich Heinrich, fell from an aero plane in 1917 in the British lines and a week or two later died from his injuries. Prior to the war he had been an exile from his country, and had spent most of his time in Italy."

"The Legion was the stamping ground of the typical ex-German as he has been described for generations. Seventy per cent of the Legion were Germans, and it was German food, German manners, German discipline, German militarism, German arrogance, German insolence and German arbitrariness. One of the majors was a German-Alsatian, the Jewish lieutenant had a German name, every sergeant-major but one was a German, every sergeant but two was a German, the cooks were Germans, and the infirmary nurses were Germans. The severity of the punishments was decidedly German, It was a German regiment of the lowest type transplanted to Africa. The soldiers spoke German among themselves, and aired only German sentiments. They retained all their German habits of excessive drinking, eating, smoking, swearing, and blaspheming."

"Wir fassen zusammen: Beim Riemann'schen Raumbegriff wird ein Raum durch die Forderung festgelegt, dass er an jeder Stelle durch drei Koordinaten beschrieben werden kann, wobei man ein System von Koordinaten auswählt, was erlaubt, von Glattheit zu sprechen, also insbesondere von glatten Kurven im Raum. In der Mathematik nennt man solche Räume dreidimensionale Mannigfaltigkeiten. Wir sind bei dieser Anschauung des Raumes von der Physik ausgegangen. Diese wird – wie das Leben allgemein – erst interessant durch Hinzunahme der Zeit und durch Betrachtung von Materie. Raum und Zeit bilden nach heutiger Auffassung selbst einen Raum, den wir uns als vierdimensionale Mannigfaltigkeit vorstellen. Bei der Füllung der Raum-Zeit-Mannigfaltigkeit mit Materie kommen Kräfte ins Spiel, welche wir uns als Felder vorstellen. Dies zu thematisieren würde hier zu weit führen.

"Du bist der beste Liebende," sagte sie nachdenklich, "den ich gesehen habe. Du bist staerker als andre, biegsamer, williger. Gut hast du meine Kunst gelernt, Siddhartha. Einst, wenn ich aelter bin, will ich von dir ein Kind haben. Und dennoch, Lieber, bist du ein Samana geblieben, dennoch liebst du mich nicht, du liebst keinen Menschen. Ist es nicht so?"
"Es mag wohl so sein", sagte Siddhartha muede. "Ich bin wie du. Auch du liebst nicht–wie koenntest du sonst die Liebe als eine Kunst betreiben? Die Menschen von unserer Art koennen vielleicht nicht lieben. Die Kindermenschen koennen es; das ist ihr Geheimnis."

"Den sechzehnten Tag der Belagerung befahl Strozzy, auch die Feldschlangen über den Fluß zu bringen und die Stadt zusammen zu schießen. Er wagte sich selbst so weit, daß er eine Musketenkugel in den Leib bekam, woran er nach einer halben Stunde starb. Der Herzog stand neben ihm, diesem sagte er: »Beim Henker, mein Herr, der König verliert heute Deinen treuen Diener und Eure Gnaden auch.« Der Herzog erinnerte ihn, an sein Heil zu denken und nannte ihm den Namen Jesus. »Was für einen Jesus führt Ihr mir hier an? Ich weiß nichts von Gott – mein Feuer ist aus« – und als der Prinz seine Ermahnungen verdoppelte und ihm sagte, daß er bald vor Gottes Angesicht sein werde, antwortete er: »Nun beim T—! ich werde da sein, wo alle Anderen sind, die seit sechstausend Jahren gestorben,« und mit diesen Worten verschied er. So endigte sich das Leben eines Mannes, der keine Religion hatte, wie er schon den Abend vorher, da er bei Vieilleville speiste, zu erkennen gab, als er anfing, zu fragen: Und was machte Gott, ehe er die Welt schuf? worauf Vieilleville ganz bescheiden sagte: daß nichts davon in der heiligen Schrift stehe, und da, wo sie nichts sagte, man auch nicht weiter forschen solle. Es ist eine ganz artige Sache, sagte Strozzi darauf, diese heilige Schrift, und sehr wohl erfunden, wenn sie nur wahr wäre; worauf Vieilleville sich stellte, als wenn er die Kolik hätte, und hinaus ging und ein Gelübde that, mit einem solchen Atheisten niemals etwas zu thun zu haben.

"I have no purpose, directly or indirectly, to interfere with the institution of slavery where it exists. I believe I have no lawful right to do so, and I have no inclination to do so."
There is much controversy about the delivering up of fugitives from service or labor. The clause I now read is as plainly written in the Constitution as any other of its provisions: "No person held to service or labor in one State, under the laws thereof, escaping into another, shall in consequence of any law or regulation therein be discharged from such service or labor, but shall be delivered up on claim of the party to whom such service or labor may be due."

  • Second Inaugural Address (1865)

One-eighth of the whole population were colored slaves, not distributed generally over the Union, but localized in the Southern part of it. These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was, somehow, the cause of the war. To strengthen, perpetuate, and extend this interest was the object for which the insurgents would rend the Union, even by war; while the government claimed no right to do more than to restrict the territorial enlargement of it.

"Der entsetzlich verdummende Einfluss der mohammedanischen Religion, der Fanatismus, die eitle Anmassung nur den eigenen Glauben für den richtigen zu halten, schliessen aber auch jede Besserung aus."

"Die Überlebenden von Dien Bien Phu erzählten von der Schlacht, vom Versagen der Führung, von der schrecklichen Überraschung, als plötzlich Artilleriefeuer auf ihre unzureichenden Stellungen trommelte. Ein Thai-Bataillon war sofort übergelaufen. Die übrigen farbigen Truppen hatten sich passiv verhalten und Deckung gesucht. Wirklich gekämpft bis zum letzten Erdloch und bis aufs Messer hatten lediglich die französischen Fallschirmjäger und die Fremdenlegionäre, zu 80 % Deutsche, seien zum Sterben angetreten wie in einer mythischen Gotenschlacht.“
