A man\'s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy,
education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would
indeeded be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of
punishment and hope of reward after death. --Albert EinsteinTelevision is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and
yet remain lonesome.
T. S. Eliot
There is no method but to be very intelligent.
T. S. Eliot
Let those who are in favour with their stars
Of public honour and proud titles boast,
Whilst I, whom fortune of such triumph bars
Unlook\'d for joy in that I honour most.
Great princes\' favourites their fair leaves spread
But as the marigold at the sun\'s eye,
And in themselves their pride lies buried,
For at a frown they in their glory die.
The painful warrior famoused for fight,
After a thousand victories once foil\'d,
Is from the book of honour razed quite,
And all the rest forgot for which he toil\'d:
Then happy I, that love and am belov\'d,
Where I may not remove nor be remov\'d.
