Topic: The world is quickly bored by the recital of misfortune, and willingly avoids the sight of distress.

That's why the homeless become invisible.

"In April 2017, the Supreme Court of Russia labeled 'Jehovah's Witnesses an extremist organization, banned its activities in Russia and issued an order to confiscate the organization's assets."
I am sorry, I didn't know that!...

I didn't know that she was pretty too! Different times. Now she wouldn't be allowed to remain pretty.

Just think what an unbearable world it would be if no one was sensible.

Topic: Men may keep a sort of level of good, but no man has ever been able to keep on one level of evil.

Gilbert Chesterton (1874-1936)

So true! And Chesterton just had the experience of the Total War concept of World War I. Not the horrors of the Fascism, of the Holocaust, of the Atomic Bombs. And of the hidden and traceless EVIL that can be done to people through technology.

I read this as: for people doing good is limited. Doing evil--limitless!

Lovely quote, thank you!

James Madison (1751-1836)


Now I realize that I misread the quote. Madison said that the Government is the greatest reflection ON human nature not OF human nature. And so it is! It has always been that way.

What a story! So Hitler wasn't really that unique after all.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)


Why love is more demanding than friendship? Love has set more ambitious goals...


We think this way, don't we?
However, the happiest and most enduring marriages seem to be those in which the partners see each other as friends.
But antipathy is more igniting for the passion than friendship, isn't it?
Perhaps this is all written in our programme...
