Edith Wharton (1862-1937)


Yeah, beautifully penned. But sorrow of what: past, future, present - or something combined in one pill?

George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)


Yeah. Democracy is a great illusion and every illusion as a rule is followed by great disillusion... So, what’s next? What it will be like? Will it be something new or old, messy or pretty? Make your bets, pals.

Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855)


Yeah. The education is a great tool for eradicating old prejudices and installing - new ones... Let’s see what we have here.

Aesop (620 BC-560 BC)


Yeah. Bad product, good marketing... We often buy things that are useless at best and harmful/hurtful at worst. What can we do? What can we do to resist such temptations?

All honor and reverence to the divine beauty of form! Let us cultivate it to the utmost in men, women, and children—in our gardens and in our houses. But let us love that other beauty too, which lies in no secret of proportion, but in the secret of deep human sympathy.

George Eliot (1819-1880)


Yeah. It’s two worlds: sometimes they coexist in peace, sometimes they clash with each other beyond all proportions... Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?

The trouble is that some like it rough, whether it’s laws, law enforcement or something more hardcore... Is there something in store for such guys?
Topic: Revenge triumphs over death; love slights it; honor aspireth to it; grief flieth to it; fear preoccupateth it.

Francis Bacon (1561-1626)


Yeah, beautifully put. Anyway, death is always near, whatever diverse stuff you are dealing with right now. You’d better watch it, dude. Am I right, Sir Francis?

Posted: Sunday, November 11, 2018 1:27:36 AM
Yeah. It may be called whatever you like. The question is how to avoid it and how to get rid of it, just in case you are already there.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881)


Yeah. Sadness is OK. Only don’t bring too much with you. Others live here too. Be reasonable, please.

E. M. Forster (1879-1970)


Yeah. Blessed or cursed... Sometimes it’s so difficult to say which one.
