"...Résume la terminaison dégénerative de cette famille..."

Traite des degenerescences physiques, intellectuelles et morales de l'espece humaine et des causes qui produisent ces varietes maladives par le Docteur B.A. Morel Atlas 1857

"A região Nordeste é a mais afetada pelo surto de microcefalia – no Brasil ..."

"En más de 20 años como médica jamás había visto algo así y con estas consecuencias".
En solamente una semana, el número de casos en Pernambuco pasó de 268 a 487, y la capital del estado, Recife, con más de 90 casos, concentra el mayor número en todo Brasil."

"...Brazil...the Italian Psychiatrist Franco Basaglia compared
 the place to a...concentration camp...

"Eu sou vítima do Estado...o presídio não recupera ninguém!!"

"Massacre do Carandiru
10:00  Enquanto, no pátio, rola uma partida de futebol, 2 detentos (Barba e Coelho) começam a brigar dentro do pavilhão. Logo, os presos se dividem em 2 grupos rivais e a briga se espalha pelos andares."

"Conhecido como massacre do Carandiru, o episódio resultou, segundo a versão oficial apresentada pelas autoridades da época, na morte de 111 detentos. Desde então, apenas o coronel Ubiratan – falecido em 2006 – foi a julgamento, sendo condenado a 632 anos de prisão em regime fechado.

....Eu sou vítima do Estado....O sistema carcerário é o maior produtor de marginal na América Latina. Você entra roubando pequenas coisas e sai assaltante de banco. O presídio não recupera ninguém....Pelo fato da ausência do Estado na minha me tornei um marginal..."

"A injustiça, senhores, desanima o trabalho, a honestidade, o bem; cresta em flor os espíritos dos moços, semeia no coração das gerações que vêm nascendo a semente da podridão, habitua os homens a não acreditar senão na estrela, na fortuna, no acaso, na loteria da sorte, promove a desonestidade, promove a venalidade [...] promove a relaxação, insufla a cortesania, a baixeza, sob todas as suas formas."

"De tanto ver triunfar as nulidades, de tanto ver prosperar a desonra, de tanto ver crescer a injustiça, de tanto ver agigantarem-se os poderes nas mãos dos maus, o homem chega a desanimar da virtude, a rir-se da honra, a ter vergonha de ser honesto."
"Nas trevas que caíram sobre o Brasil, a única luz que alumia, no fundo da nave, é o talento de Ruy Barbosa."  D. Pedro II

"...Suum Cuique Tribuere..."

".... iuris praecepta sunt haec: honeste vivere, alterum non laedere, suum cuique tribuere. (Inst. 1,1,3-4). "the precepts of law are these: to live honestly, to injure no one, to give to each his own")"
"Arthur Koestler reminds us that...period when pickpockets were punished by hanging in England"
"Outside court Mr Woodward said "I have totally lost faith in British justice after this. I am a retained firefighter and to think I might have to save this man's life one day sickens me.
"He stole from me and then when I caught him he lashed out with a golf club and could easily have killed me. Yet despite all that and his criminal record he doesn't go to prison.
...The couple had two young children in the back of their car during the raid.
...Since his offending began at the age of eleven, Smith has accumulated some 167 offences on his record, Mr Fridd said.
...Judge Tabor sentenced Wood to six months jail suspended for two years and ordered her to do 100 hours unpaid work and a 20 day rehabilitation activity programme. The judge deferred sentence on Smith for six months till Nov 21st to see if he can stay out of trouble and save £250 to compensate Mr Woodward....
 But the judge's decision infuriated Mr Woodward and his family who left court complaining that he did not know the up to date story about Smith."

"Morality is stronger than tyrants"

is superior to REWARD and PUNISHMENTS..."

" can any one under the apprehension of these evils be happy? What shall we say of him who not only dreads these evils as impending, but actually feels and bears them at present?...shall we say that such a one is but little short of a happy life, to say nothing about the happiest possible life?
...a wise man is free from every perturbation of mind...he will never be too joyful or too sad, because he depends entirely upon himself.
...But that what I propose to demonstrate to you may not rest on mere words only, I must set before you the picture of something, as it were, living and moving in the world, that may dispose us more for the improvement of the understanding and real knowledge.
Let us, then, pitch upon some man perfectly acquainted with the most excellent arts; let us present him for a while to our own thoughts, and figure him to our own imaginations.

 In the first place, he must necessarily be of an extraordinary capacity; for virtue is not easily connected with dull minds. Secondly, he must have a great desire of discovering truth, from whence will arise that threefold production of the mind; one of which depends on knowing things, and explaining nature: the other in defining what we ought to desire, and what to avoid: the third in judging of consequences and impossibilities: in which consists both subtilty in disputing, and also clearness of judgment. Now with what pleasure must the mind of a wise man be affected, which continually dwells in the midst of such cares and occupations as these, when he views the revolutions and motions of the whole world, and sees those innumerable stars in the heavens, which, though fixed in their places, have yet one motion in common with the whole universe, and observes the seven other stars, some higher, some lower, each maintaining their
 own course, while their motions, though wandering, have certain defined and appointed spaces to run through, the sight of which doubtless urged and encouraged those ancient philosophers to exercise their investigating spirit on many other things. Hence arose an inquiry after the beginnings, and, as it were, seeds from which all things were produced and composed; what was the origin of every kind of thing, whether animate or inanimate, articulately speaking or mute; what occasioned their beginning and end, and by what alteration and change one thing was converted into another: whence the earth originated, and by what weights it was balanced: by what caverns the seas were supplied: by what gravity all things being carried down tend always to the middle of the world, which in any round body is the lowest place..."
Whether Virtue Alone Be Sufficient For A Happy Life., Cicero


"If you only knew what darkness I am plunged into."
Thérèse of Lisieux

"... a man cannot... allow doctors to perform acts of a physical or somatic nature which doubtless relieve heavy physical or psychic burdens or infirmities, but which bring about at the same time permanent abolition or considerable and durable diminution of his freedom, that is, of his human personality in its typical and characteristic function. Such an act degrades a man to the level of a being reacting only to acquired reflexes or to a living automation. The moral law does not allow such a reversal of values. Here it sets up its limits to the "medical interests of the patient.

... the doctor as a private individual disposes only of the rights given him by the patient and because the patient can give only what he himself possesses."
An address given September 14, 1952 by His Holiness Pope Pius XII to the First International Congress on the Histopathology of the Nervous System.

 " The church to be a physical place of refuge. Refuge means a place of shelter, protection, and safety. Therefore, the sanctuary should be place of rest, peace, and protection from those within as well as those without..."

"This study seeks to find evidence for telepathy in a controlled environment. The ‘ganzfeld’ has successfully encouraged telepathy in the laboratory on numerous occasions. We think that everyone can be psychic under these conditions.This study will allow for greater understanding of the process of telepathy, by addressing personality and other correlations with telepathy in the laboratory.The work is funded by a grant from the Bial foundation in Portugal."
