Whose rights will we acknowledge? Whose human dignity

Your relationship will become stronger and happier if you do.

Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

almost everyone gets busy on the proof.

Do you not know that there comes a midnight hour
when every one has to throw off his mask?
Do you believe that life will always let itself be mocked?
Do you think you can slip away a little before midnight
in order to avoid this? Or are you not terrified by it?
I have seen men in real life who so long deceived others
that at last their true nature could not reveal itself;...
In every man there is something which to a certain degree
prevents him from becoming perfectly transparent to himself;
and this may be the case in so high a degree,
he may be so inexplicably woven into relationships of life
which extend far beyond himself that he almost cannot reveal himself.
But he who cannot reveal himself cannot love,
and he who cannot love is the most unhappy man of all.
- Soren Kierkegaard

just dead wrong.

it may be inadvisable to draw it out...
Perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure.

to learn from the experience of others,
are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.
- Douglas Adams

I have an almost religious zeal...
not for technology per se, but for the Internet which is for me,
the nervous system of mother Earth, which I see as a living creature,
linking up.

Almost every wise saying has an opposite one,
no less wise, to balance it.
