I did go to Wellesley a women's college. And I am of a kind of strange generation which is transitional in terms of women who wanted to go out and get jobs.
This society in which we live is radically changing. What previous generations saw as evil is now embraced as being good. It is a dangerous and slippery slope upon which we stand when we reject what Solomon called the beginning of wisdom - the fear of God.
That which seems the height of absurdity in one generation often becomes the height of wisdom in another.
Animals in their generation are wiser than the sons of men but their wisdom is confined to a few particulars and lies in a very narrow compass.
I believe the war on terror is the vital discussion of this decade and of our generation probably. To win the war on terror you need a good offense and a good defense. On defense I regret to say basically this administration has not come close to doing what is necessary.
I believe that political correctness can be a form of linguistic fascism and it sends shivers down the spine of my generation who went to war against fascism.
My father belongs to the generation that fought the war in the 1940s. When I was a kid my father told me stories - not so many but it meant a lot to me. I wanted to know what happened then to my father's generation. It's a kind of inheritance the memory of it.
I remember the 1940s as a time when we were united in a way known only to that generation. We belonged to a common cause-the war.
The things that inform student culture are created and controlled by the unseen culture the sociological aspects of our climbing culture our 'me' generation our yuppie culture our SUVs or you know shopping culture our war culture.
Mine is the first generation able to contemplate the possibility that we may live our entire lives without going to war or sending our children to war.
It was quite a European war until 1917 when the Americans joined up. They don't have the same sense of the loss of innocence and the cataclysmic loss of life. A whole generation was wiped out.
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light but rather because its opponents eventually die and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
This generation has given up on growth. They're just hoping for survival.
Trouble is kids feel they have to shock their elders and each generation grows up into something harder to shock.
We have the new greatest generation. We don't need as large a military due to the technology we have the equipment we have outfitting our personnel. They really are storm troopers.
For over 15 years through the clean coal programs of the Department of Energy the Federal Government has been a solid partner working jointly with private companies and the states to develop and demonstrate a new generation of environmentally clean technology using coal.
With a fourth generation of nuclear power you can have a technology that will burn more than 99 percent of the energy in the fuel. It would mean that you don't need to mine uranium for the next thousand years.
The goal for many amputees is no longer to reach a 'natural' level of ability but to exceed it using whatever cutting-edge technology is available. As this new generation sees it our tools are evolving faster than the human body so why obey the limits of mere nature?
I don't find the technology threatening. A lot of people my age my generation find it difficult to immerse themselves. But I would never preclude the idea of using any technology if I thought it suited the end result.
Lucky individuals in each generation find technology appropriate to their needs.
I think eventually I want to become a teacher like my father wanted to be and hopefully positively influence the next generation.
As a teacher as a propagandist Mr. Shaw is no good at all even in his own generation. But as a personality he is immortal.
People repeat behaviour that leads to flooding their brains with pleasurable chemicals. The short-term reward loop acts over hours to years and the long-term reproductive success loop over generations.
I realized then that the generations may change but the strength of our nation remains solid.
