Walter Thomas Schmid, Ph. D.
Yield who will to their separation, my object in living is to unite
my avocation and my vocation as my two eyes make one in sight.
Only where love and need are one, and the work is played for mortal stakes,
Is the deed ever really done for Heaven and the future's sakes.
--Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time
Give more to the soil than you take away. --Karel Capek, A Gardener's Year
Some day, some day, but certainly not now, I'd like to learn to have a conversation.

Let your intelligence begin to rule
Whenever you sit with others
Using this sane idea:
Leave all your cocked guns in a field far from us.
One of those damned things
"This Sane Idea" -Hafiz
