The Twenty-third Coral Gables conference on Unified Symmetry in the Small and in the Large was convened February 2-5, 1995. The shift of the traditional conference time from the last part of January was caused by the 1995 Superbowl's choice of our preferred date for their game. The conference was dedicated to reminiscences of Julian Schwinger. The death of Eugene P. Wigner in the early part of January 1995 was observed with a deep sorrow during the conference. At about that time the news of Asim Barut's death made 1995 an inauspicious year for physicists. In the meantime physics at the frontiers marched on as it did before. There were no path-breaking discoveries, but hope and persistence were still there. In 1964 (the first Coral Gables conference) if we had asked a physicist to give us a sincere opinion on what is "hot" in physics we would have expected him or her to point out the narrow area of their own research. The answer to this question in 1995 is still the same as it would have been in 1964. The mind set is a human quality and even in physics the physicist can respond like a religious believer.
