A Quote by Thomas G. West on visual, spatial abilities, modes of thought, complex problems, sciences, and arts

" Visual and spatial modes of thought seem well suited to dealing with certain complex problems and are often closely associated with major creative achievements in the sciences as well as the arts. Visual-spatial abilities can play a much more important role in major creative accomplishments;  in many different fields, even when they are not commonly thought to be highly visual;  than is commonly recognised."

A Quote by Thomas G. West on force, morality, nations, observation, principles, privacy, understanding, and virtue

The founders of this nation understood that private morality is the fount from whence sound public policy springs. Replying to Washington's first inaugural address, the Senate stated: "We feel, sir, the force and acknowledge the justness of the observation that the foundation of our national policy should be lain in private morality. If individuals be not influenced by moral principles it is in vain to look for public virtue."
