CRAWFISH CHARLEY "Science knows nothing of the ori- gin of human energy. Scientists ac- cept energy as a fact. Science has no imagination. The science of Imag- ination is something different. A thing defined is given a limitation, and the definition exists in the Imag- ination and Memory." CRAWFISH CHAI~LEY "Life does not live without food to rebuild its activities, and, as it lives, it is ever changing to adjust itself to a new environnlent." CRAWFISH CHARLEY "From human motives may come the nourishment t_,f ideas. Perhaps, too, motives are the very soul of in- spiration, human character and per- sonality. We know that they are the basis of civilization--the basis of law and order, of crinte and punishment and of worthy and great achieve- nlents." CRAWFISH CHARLEY '%Vhen there is no further use and motives for the existence of buildings, industrial plants, railroads, etc., these physical objects soon begin to crum- ble and decay.
