1. "Me irritan muchísimo quienes nos preguntan, con mirada fingidamente horrorizada: "¿No me estará usted juzgando?". Pues sí, claro que lo juzgo, lo juzgo continuamente. (...) Concedo mi estima, o la retiro, dosifico mi amabilidad, dejo en suspenso mi amistad a la espera de pruebas complementarias, me distancio, me acerco, me aparto, concedo un aplazamiento, hago borrón y cuenta nueva, o finjo que lo hago. La mayoría de los interesados ni se dan cuenta. No comunico las sentencias, no doy lecciones, la observación del mundo no tiene en mí más consecuencia que un diálogo interior, un diálogo interminable conmigo mismo"."

In other words, if the dog knows it's wrong to destroy furniture yet deliberately and maliciously does it, remembers the wrong he did and feels guilt, it feels like he merits a punishment2, doesn't it? That's just what dogs have been getting - a lot of punishment. We set them up for all kinds of punishment by overestimating their ability to think. Interestingly, it's the "cold" behaviorist model that ends up giving dogs a much better crack at meeting the demands we make of them. The myth gives problems to dogs they cannot solve and then punishes them for failing. And the saddest thing is that the main association most dogs have with that punishment is the presence of their owner. This puts a pretty twisted spin on loooving dogs ‘cause they're so smart, doesn't it?"

He saw that there was no mood of the mind that had not its counterpart in the sensuous life, and set himself to discover their true relations, wondering what there was in frankincense that made one mystical, and in ambergris that stirred one's passions, and in violets that woke the memory of dead romances, and in musk that troubled the brain, and in champak that stained the imagination; and seeking often to elaborate a real psychology of perfumes, and to estimate the several influences of sweet-smelling roots, and scented pollen-laden flower, of aromatic balms, and of dark and fragrant woods, of spikenard that sickens, of hovenia that makes men mad, and of aloes that are said to be able to expel melancholy from the soul."
