Topic: Hope is a leaf-joy, which may be beaten out to a great extension, like gold.

Yeah. Let’s hope it’s true, especially when it’s our lovely Monday morning...

W. Somerset Maugham (1874-1965)


Yeah. We are leap in and some time later - leap out. And it’s exactly this immeasurable distance, what makes death/afterdeath so frightening...

Charles Dickens (1812-1870)


Yeah. Then what/who makes the great lawyer? Where can you find such perfect villain?
Topic: To be in the weakest camp is to be in the strongest school.

Yeah, of course. But only if you want to learn to play defence...

Yeah. Ambitions can have different sizes, shapes, colors and flavors - but for sure they ain’t lazy... They exact their precious services with utmost dedication.

Charles Dickens (1812-1870)


Yeah. Habits make or break - me, you, us. And to some extent they are kinda substitute for happiness. It's not much, but just enough to keep going.

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)


Yeah. Probably the brute force can’t stand us just as well - for we are so weak. It must be so unbearable....
Topic: The rain fell alike upon the just and upon the unjust, and for nothing was there a why and a wherefore.

Gilbert Chesterton (1874-1936)


Nah. Love is a difficult matter to handle. There isn’t (and can’t be) one way to master it. And even if something works once or twice - it means nothing...

Yeah. The cultural layer of human civilization is in a constant need of some manure… All hands on deck - or what they call it.
