Current favorite quotes

On the lack of weakness in practicing humility:

"Once when a child asked ['Abdu'l-Bahá] why all the rivers of the earth flow into the ocean, He said, ‘because it sets itself lower than them all and so draws them to itself.’

– Vignettes from the Life of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá

Regarding verbal one-upmanship (particularly evident online!):

"Verily I say unto thee: Of all men the most negligent is he that disputeth idly and seeketh to advance himself over his brother. Say, O brethren! Let deeds, not words, be your adorning."

– Bahá'u'lláh, Hidden Words

About me


  • I don't currently have a commenting system enabled. If you wish to get in touch, feel free to send a Yahoo email to brettz9 .


Other Causes

  • I strongly believe the world should choose an official world auxiliary language (whether it is an existing language like English, confirmed and taught universally in schools around the world, or a constructed language--whatever gets agreement). In the hopes of furthering this effort, and also drawing attention to the possibilities for such a universal sign language, mostly by the help of my dear mother, and with kind permission from the World Federation of the Deaf, I have put online an early book on Gestuno, with the language now known more widely as International Sign or IS.
