"If I take care of the world, the world will take care of me." I think Buckminister Fuller may have said something like this, and if you know the original reference for this quote, please let me know. What this means is that I'm very lenient about giving permission to copy my works. Indeed, I would like to be as generous as Paul Erdos.

Copyrights are required for book production in the United States. In my case, any properly footnoted quotation of up to 500 sequential words may be used without permission, as long as the total number of words quoted does not exceed 2000. For longer quotations or for a greater number of words quoted, please fill out the permissions form below and send to my address below or e-mail to:
