Francis Bacon (1561-1626)


Though the mills of God grind slowly;
Yet they grind exceeding small;


Yeah. Can we say the same about the states’ mills?

Love is influenced by no consideration, recognizes no restraints of reason, and is of the same nature as death, that assails alike the lofty palaces of kings and the humble cabins of shepherds; and when it takes entire possession of a heart, the first thing it does is to banish fear and shame from it.

Miguel de Cervantes (1547-1616)


Yeah. It sounds like some kind of hacking attack. You lose control all over your whole life. Thank Heavens, it’s only temporarily... No, no, not again.

George Eliot (1819-1880)


Yeah. Mutual embarrassment may be so sweet, so sensual, so intimate. Sometimes it’s a precursor for something big - called 'Love'...

Virginia Woolf (1882-1941)


Yeah. Anyway, you protect something, while you have enough strength. And then when it happens. Well, it’s too late to bother about.
Topic: Falsehood is so easy, truth so difficult.

Yeah. It seems that they must somehow balance each other in order for life is to be bearable…

Ambrose Bierce (1842-1914)


Yeah. It’s not much, but enough to sleep over with… Just joking. Seriously.
Topic: It is no use trying to sum people up. One must follow hints, not exactly what is said, nor yet entirely what is done.
Posted: Sunday, July 14, 2019 3:13:45 AM
Yeah. It’s rather an art than a science. Anyway, do whatever it takes to go along with your life, but within the bounds of the criminal law, of course. Try it out. It may be fitting just for you.
Topic: A fair result can be obtained only by fully stating and balancing the facts and arguments on both sides of each question.

Charles Darwin (1809-1882)


Yeah. It’s even more difficult when you have more than two sides at the table - or when neither of sides want to play fair, which is regrettably so common here and now...

Jane Austen (1775-1817)


Yeah. Do it quickly enough and your can get a chance to do things done. But not quicker than that, of course....
