Martin Buber
b. 2-8-1878; Vienna, Austria
d. 1-4-1941; Jerusalem

Martin Buber, a philosopher, translator, and educator, influenced thought in the fields of social psychology, social philosophy, philosophical anarchism, and religious existentialism, focusing on the the nature of being, existence and reality. Buber resigned from his post at the University of Frankfurt in protest when Hilter came to power in Germany.

Martin Buber quotes ~
“Through the Thou a person becomes I.”
“A person cannot approach the divine by reaching beyond the human. To become human, is what this individual person, has been created for.”
“God wants man to fulfill his commands as a human being and with the quality peculiar to human beings.”
“Play is the exultation of the possible.”

Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama
566 to 486 BCE

Siddhartha Gautama was a prince of the Shakyas and the founder of Buddhism.

The Buddha taught Four Noble Truths -
• that all worldly life is dissatisfying and contains suffering,
• the suffering is caused by desire rooted in ignorance,
• there is an end to suffering (Nirvana),
• and there is an Eightfold Path out of suffering -
Right Understanding, Right Thought, Right Speech, Right Action, Right Livelihood, Right Effort, Right Mindfulness, and Right Concentration.

“Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings – that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.”

Frank Gelett Burgess
b. 1-30-1866; Boston, MA
d. 9-18-1951

Artist, art critic, poet, author, and humorist Gelett Burgess penned these famous words-
“I never saw a Purple Cow;
I never hope to See One;
But I can Tell you, Anyhow,
I'd rather See than Be One”

After graduating from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Burgess went of California and became an instructor in topographical drawing at Berkeley, cofounded The Lark magazine where The Purple Cow was published, founded Le Petit Journal des Refusées which was composed entirely of material rejected by other publishers and printed on scraps of wallpaper, and wrote a series of children's books about child-like creatures he called “The Goops”.

Burgess also was the first American to write about cubist art in the U.S., interviewing Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Georges Braque; AND it seems he is attributed with coining the word “blurb”, meaning a short description of a book, film, or other product written for promotional purposes, in 1907.

John Burroughs
b. 4-3-1837; Roxbury, New York
d. 3-29-1921; near Kingsville, OH

Naturalist and author John Burroughs was intrumental in the evolution of the U.S. conservation movement through his ability to “record his own unique perceptions of the natural world.”

Born on the family farm in the Catskill Mountains, Burroughs spent his youth working on the farm and observing nature. He taught school in order to pay for advanced education that introduced him to the work of Emerson and Thoreau.

In his long life Burroughs was friends with Jay Gould, a hometown classmate, the poet Walt Whitman, Theodore Roosevelt, John Muir, Henry Ford, Harvey Firestone, and Thomas Edison.

Nannie Helen Burroughs
b. 5-2-1879; Orange, VA
d. 5-20-1961; Washington, DC

Nannie Helen Burroughs was a teacher, orator, religious leader and businesswoman who gained national recognition from her 1900 speech “How the Sisters Are Hindered from Helping” at the National Baptist Convention. The school she founded, the National Training School for Women and Girls, emphasized the importance of being proud black women.

Nannie Helen Burroughs quotes ~
• “What we need are mental and spiritual giants who are aflame with a purpose ... We're a race ready for crusade, for we've recognized that we're a race on this continent that can work out its own salvation.”
• “When the Negro learns what manner of man he is spiritually, he will wake up all over. He will stop playing white even on the stage. He will rise in the majesty of his own soul.”
• “To struggle and battle and overcome and absolutely defeat every force designed against us is the only way to achieve.”
