  •  Sir ACC: One Of The Great Humanists. (8+ / 0-)

    Even though he was old and tired, nevertheless his passing marked a loss of the kind of optimistic vision, based on reason but synergized with an uncompromising faith in mankind, which propelled us forward toward the stars.

    I miss him. And when I despair for the future, I still pick up The Fountains Of Paradise or Childhood's End, just to top off my tank with Hope for a better world in a benevolent, if somewhat chaotic, Universe.

    And like the drowning man, who, in despair, Doth clutch the frail and weakly straw --Thomas Horatius Delpho

      I wish there was a way to film this, because I know it's the only way this work will reach the audience that should get the message, but I've never figured out how this could be brought to the screen.
