Just for a historical record (and for fun):

USS Politesse (SP-662)
- It was a motorboat that served in the United States Navy as a patrol vessel from 1917 to 1919.
- Politesse was built as a civilian motorboat in 1911 by J. R. Robertson at Waltham, Massachusetts, for Frederick G. Hood. In 1917, the U.S. Navy chartered her for use as a patrol boat during World War I.
- She was commissioned on 15 April 1917 as USS Politesse (SP-662). Apparently, her charter officially went into effect two days later, on 17 April 1917.
- Politesse performed patrol duty at Boston, Massachusetts, for the remainder of World War I.

Despite we are made of our individuality, every human being is a part of a whole. Being interconnected with others around us and before us (our forefathers) and after us (our generations), we are attached in time and space to all living beings sharing this planet, and perhaps, this universe.
My fellow Rudyard was very happy in writing these words down in such a beautiful fashion.
Those lines represent the reality of humans as a sort of collective-individuals. A universe inside connected outside.

First class (computing)

In database modeling, a first class item is one that has an identity independent of any other item.
The identity allows the item to persist when its attributes change allowing other items to claim relationships with the item.

A man's character may be learned from the adjectives which he habitually uses in conversation.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)

The adejctives used by anyone in conversations are the strata of his/her culture environment. In other words, the way we use language shows how much educated is our view of this world.
I totally agree with Mr Twain.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.
John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

My point of view is that Kennedy's statement might be regarded as how much we are to take control of things in life.
Considering that revolutions as turning-point moments in everyone's lives, we either can handle and control the situation improving a peaceful transition, or let the "situation" blows the coop doing nothing and letting the "civil war" happen.
In other words, If you don't take care of Life, Life will "take care" of you!
Being even more literal, Who doesn't manage, will be managed.
