Because blindly trusting someone, is a form of weakness.

Charles John Huffam Dickens
- It's needless to present this monster of English Literature!
Some of his masterpieces are:
- The Pickwick Papers
- Oliver Twist
- A Christmas Carol
- David Copperfield

His quote for this week:
"Always suspect everybody." That's the maxim to go through life with!

- He, after all, had a very tough childhood when he had to live in prison with his father and mother because of his father's debt with some fellows. Afterwards, he had to live in an aunt's house where he was ill-treated by her husband for a long time.
- However, his statement isn't totally wrong. I have a point of view much more optimistic than him, but I do believe that we have to keep one foot behind in dealing with others, and with ourselves to some extent.
- A famous muslin praying is: "May God protect me against my enemies, my friends, and myself"
