Please respect that these are Great Books sites. We far prefer
discussions along the following
Betwixt mine eye and heart a league is took,
And each doth good turns now unto the other:
When that mine eye is famish\'d for a look,
Or heart in love with sighs himself doth smother,
With my love\'s picture then my eye doth feast,
And to the painted banquet bids my heart;
Another time mine eye is my heart\'s guest,
And in his thoughts of love doth share a part:
So, either by thy picture or my love,
Thy self away, art present still with me;
For thou not farther than my thoughts canst move,
And I am still with them, and they with thee;
Or, if they sleep, thy picture in my sight
Awakes my heart, to heart\'s and eye\'s delight.
Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards,
if you disgrace yourself you can always write a book.
The beauty of life, is that you don\'t have to be modernly beautiful to live it.

Welfare\'s purpose should be to eliminate, as far as possible, the need for
its own existence.
