All our efforts to guard and guide our children may just get in the way of the one thing they need most from us: to be deeply loved yet left alone so they can try a new skill, new slang, new style, new flip-flops. So they can trip a few times, make mistakes, cross them out, try again, with no one keeping score.

I think when people mean that Discworld books have become darker they really mean the series is growing up. In 'The Colour of Magic' most of the city is set alight.

Never go to excess, but let moderation be your guide.
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Joseph Franklin Rutherford
In our western civilization we have the glorious example, the great standard of perfection and the teachings of the Christ to guide us. He acts for us as Mediator between our personality and our Soul.
For I must tell you that we artists cannot tread the path of Beauty without Eros keeping company with us and appointing himself as our guide.
I try to be a guide for people, to make their darkness bright and to make the pathway light, and never to condemn or control or criticize.
We have to know that life cannot be changed by us. It will be changed. But not by us. We can only guide the things that can cause physical change.
Ludwig Mies van der Rohe

I don't know if science and reason will ultimately help guide humanity to a better and more peaceful future, but I am certain that this belief is part of what keeps the 'Star Trek' fandom going.
