Topic: Very few of us are what we seem.

Quite apropos Agatha's quote, a friend of mine argued yesterday - with a certain degree of truthful irony - that; "We are all the antithesis of how others view us".

What's that Star Trek-quote again?

"Time travel. Ever since my first day in the job as a Starfleet Captain I swore I'd never let myself get caught in one of these god-forsaken paradoxes. The future is the past, the past is the future. It all gives me a headache."
-Janeway (Future's End Pt. I)

Interesting stuff...

Topic: Each had his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by heart; and his friends could only read the title.

Damn. So much for being "as open as a book", as the phrase goes...

So beautiful and strong words.

One user of the Free Dictionary here - unforunately I can't remember his name, but he is Argentinian, if I'm not mistaken - put it quite well a couple of years ago, I think, when he wrote the following:

"I try not to be tied to the past while I cherish memories;
I try to make something of my days, yearning for tomorrow,
but whatever I do, I must do it today."
Topic: A well adjusted person is one who makes the same mistake twice without getting nervous.

“You cannot help people permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves.”
Topic: He used statistics as a drunken man uses lampposts; for support rather than illumination.

Headline somehow sparks a mental association of some cheesy (fictional) 1980s metal album-title. Applause
Topic: The proper office of a friend is to side with you when you are in the wrong. Nearly anybody will side with you when you are...

One of my favorite phrases about friendship and bad friends, something that has sat with me deep since I read it the first time: “A false friend and a shadow attend only while the sun shines”. Benjamin Franklin's words.
Topic: No enemy is worse than bad advice.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but be patient with those who supply it, said one dame once.
