"Out of this war ... a new world must be born, a world that would justify the sacrifices offered by humanity. This ... must be a world in which there shall be no exploitation of the weak by the strong, of the good by the evil, where there will be no humiliation of the poor by the violence of the rich; where the products of the intellect, science, and art will serve society for the betterment and beautification of life, and not the individuals for achieving wealth. This new world shall not be a world of the downtrodden and humiliated, but of free men and free nations, equal in dignity and respect for man." ~ Nikola Tesla

What wonderful words! Thanks for sharing. Where did you find it?

Also I *LOVE* your icon! Where is it form? It looks like Jonthon Young as Tesla but I don't remember that scene in the show.
nikolat3sla: naughty vampnikolat3sla on December 5th, 2009 02:13 am (UTC)
i bought a new book, "Tesla, Man out of time" and it includes a lot of his quotes and private letters. i'm most interested at the moment in his lifelong love affair with his best friend's wife lol. (unrequited of course).

lol it IS JY as Tesla - but in his stage show, "Brilliant! The Blinding Enlightenment of Nikola Tesla"

That sounds like a really interesting book! I'm going to order from my library if get a chance. Tasha is a very interesting man. I read that Tasla was celibate and claimed that his chastity was very helpful to his scientific abilities. Maybe some of it had to do with being in love with someone he couldn't have? I'd love read the book to find out more about it:D

Oh! That is so cool! Thank you for the links:D I love the tap dancing:D Just when I think I can't love JY more he shows off a new talent and acting skills. I wish they still put Brilliant on! And it was somewhere I could go see it at.

LOVE YOUR ICON SO MUCH

yes the book is excellent! his letters to Katharine and hers back make no secret of their affection but he respected his best friend so much that he seems to have rebuffed her every time. *sniff*

i know - if i go to vancouver i am SO going to see one of their stage shows.!!!! i wish you could buy a recording of it. there is not enough tesla stuff!!!
angelfireeast: Sanctuary:  Nikola & Helen - workingangelfireeast on December 7th, 2009 04:03 pm (UTC)
:D Thanks it's one of my favorite scenes:D I love the quote in yours:D

Now that's friendship and sacrifice. I wonder how much his friend knew of their feelings towards one another.

Me too! There shows seem so original and fun. Whatever the subject matter I think it's be a hoot to see. And I agree there really isn't enough Tesla stuff out there.
nikolat3slanikolat3sla on December 6th, 2009 06:49 am (UTC)
actual letter:

Mr Tesla,

What are you doing these stormy days? We ... are wondering if anybody is coming in this evening to cheer us up, say about 9, or at 7 for dinner. We are very dull and very very comfortable before an open fire, but two is too small a number. For congeniality there must be three, especially when it snows 'in my country'. Is that wonderful machine in order again and are you ready for the photographers and the thunderbolts and Juno and all the lesser gods and goddesses tomorrow? Come and tell us. We shall look for you, at 7 or 9."

Katharine..
