Topic: I shall ask for brains instead of a heart; for a fool would not know what to do with a heart if he had one.

Now some of the people are poor in the purse
They don't have the cash at the ready
And some of the people are crippled and lame
They can never stand up true and steady
And some of the people are poor in the head
Like the simpleton fools that you see
But most of the people are poor in the heart
It's the worst kind of poor, the worst kind of poor you can be

Maybe it also works the other way around.
Topic: So Limericks are in the forum...

An antipode of the man from Peru:

I once knew a man who was blessed
With a talent that he possessed
He wrote any verse
Never stuck for words
But his limericks, he had to confess
Had always one line in excess

There was an old man in Manassas
Who needed to clean his old glasses
But he got confused -
Sand paper he used
It’s been misty since then in Manassas.

Thank you, likewise.

An silly young maiden from Leigh
Had a rose growing out of her knee
She called the medical station
To inquire about defloration
And found out that they do it for free

It's hard! Here's my first ever attempt at writing a L.

There once was a handsome young girl
Who slept with an oyster call Earl
And though it was meant
As a one-night stand
She is now a mother of pearl
Topic: Morals are an acquirement, like music, like a foreign language, like piety, poker, paralysis, no man is born with them.

I think so too. Morals are just what makes us happier in the (very) long run. It takes time and experience to find out. So the experienced can help the inexperienced by guiding them into experiences that are good for them - not by telling them what is good and what is bad.
Topic: Pathos, piety, courage,—they exist, but are identical, and so is filth. Everything exists, nothing has value.

Nobody who sees courage as a convenience rather than something to admire or be proud of, will deny its value.

Remarkably often, it is preceded by stupidity.
