CONTENTSNicholas JohnsonTest Pattern for Living
A Twentieth-CenturyGuide to Coping with Life,Liberty and the Pursuitof Happiness -- WithoutDropping Out
"A great many Americans have been searching for some new meaning in their  personal lives during the past few years. You may be among them. I am.
"I am also a federal official who's concerned about the national consequencesof our failure to provide the quality of life that would permit us to attain moreof our full potential.
"No one -- save fanatics and corporate profiteers -- represents that he has"the" answer. Your answer must be found for you and by you.
"At the same time, it seems to me we ought to share with each other suchincomplete and imperfect insights as we've evolved. We ought to help eachother. We damn sure aren't getting any help from Big Business, BigBroadcasting, or Big Government."
Federal Communications Commissioner 
ToAmerica:the people, the land, the dream and the possibility it may all yet come trueI am waiting for someone
to really discover America.
-- Lawrence FerlinghettiIt was the inevitability of America that stirred . . . [Tom Paine] most; here wasa new breed of men, not out of blood nor class nor birth, but out of a promise
 pure and simple; and the promise when summed up, when whittled down,when made positive and negative, shorn of all the great frame of mountains,rivers, and valleys, was freedom, and no more and no less than that.
-- Howard Fast
Citizen Tom Paine
