Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don\'t mean to do harm. But
harm does not interest them.
T. S. Eliot
Recession is when a neighbour loses his job. Depression is when you lose
Mine eye and heart are at a mortal war,
How to divide the conquest of thy sight;
Mine eye my heart thy picture\'s sight would bar,
My heart mine eye the freedom of that right.
My heart doth plead that thou in him dost lie,--
A closet never pierc\'d with crystal eyes--
But the defendant doth that plea deny,
And says in him thy fair appearance lies.
To side this title is impannelled
A quest of thoughts, all tenants to the heart;
And by their verdict is determined
The clear eye\'s moiety, and the dear heart\'s part:
As thus; mine eye\'s due is thy outward part,
And my heart\'s right, thy inward love of heart.
Government does not solve problems; it subsidizes them.
