It reflects no concessions either to or by the Soviet Union. It reflects simply our common recognition of the dangers in further testing. Remarks at Amherst College Painting by Claude Monet October 26, 1963 Robert Frost said: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. I hope that road will not be the less traveled by, and I hope your commitment to the Great Republic's interest in the years to come will be worthy of your long inheritance since your beginning. This day devoted to the memory of Robert Frost offers an opportunity for reflection which is prized by politicians as well as by others, and even by poets, for Robert Frost was one of the granite figures of our time in America. He was supremely two things: an artist and an American. A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.

The secular courses could easily include this wider value-based perspective, but most fail to do so theyre too busy packaging mindfulness for our age of hyper-individualism. But the rampant misuse of mindfulness runs deeper: It has also hijacked the ancient ideal of carpe diem seize the day which goes all the way back to a poem written in 23 B.C. by the Roman poet Horace. Even as we speak, he wrote, envious time flies past; seize the day and leave as little as possible for tomorrow. Based on this message, for centuries the primary meaning of carpe diem has been about grasping fleeting opportunities in life, whether it is the chance to change career or to rescue a crumbling marriage. (Remember Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society ?) Yet my research, based on analysis of thousands of original sources (from personal blogs to political speeches) reveals that around 20% of people now associate the idea of carpe diem with being mindfully in the here and now.
