A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on sacred geometry, humanity, integrity, people, questions, and universe

Whether humanity is to comprehensively prosper...depends entirely on the integrity of the human individuals and not on the political and economic systems.  The cosmic question has been asked: are humans worthwhile to universe invention?"

A Quote by R. Buckminster Fuller on buckminster fuller bucky homosexuality population

We shall have to stop looking askance on trends in relation to sex merely as a reproductive capability, i.e. that it is normal to make babies. Society will have to change in its assessment of what the proclivities of humanity may be. Our viewpoints on homosexuality, for example, may have to be reconsidered and more wisely adjusted.
