1. "Do you know what A means, little Piglet?" "No, Eeyore, I don't." "It means Learning, it means Education, it means all the things that you and Pooh haven't got. That's what A means." "Oh," said Piglet again. "I mean, does it?" he explained quickly. "I'm telling you. People come and go in this Forest, and they say, ‘It's only Eeyore, so it doesn't count.' They walk to and fro saying ‘Ha ha!' But do they know anything about A? They don't. It's just three sticks to them. But to the Educated—mark this, little Piglet—to the Educated, not meaning Poohs and Piglets, it's a great and glorious A. Not," he added, "just something that anybody can come and breathe on."

"I can't just storm in and proclaim my intentions. I can't 'steal' you away. I just have to wait and hope that, someday, you'll ask." "And if I don't?" Laurel said, her voice barley above a whisper. "Then I guess I'll wait forever."

6. "Funnily enough, "self-criticism" is an idea much in vogue in Marxist countries, but there it is subordinated to ideological considerations and must serve the State, and not truth and justice in men's dealing with one another.

The more unrelated individuals are, the more consolidated the State becomes, and vice versa."

Way to go, Lauren, I thought. He had been looking at me!"

We got into a sort of dance, this cat and I...I tossed it out because I was trying to meditate, to get enlightened. But the cat kept returning.

Thirty seconds later the cat got up and walked out. So, you see, our teachers come in many forms."

Today's Quote

You said, "I will go to another land, I will go to another sea.Another city will be found, better than this.Every effort of mine is condemned by fate;and my heart is-like a corpse-buried.How long in this wasteland will my mind remain.Wherever I turn my eyes, wherever I may lookI see the black ruins of my life here,where I spent so many years, and ruined and wasted."New lands you will not find, you will not find other seas.The city will follow you. You will roam the samestreets. And you will age in the same neighborhoods;in these same houses you will grow gray.Always you will arrive in this city. To another land-do not hope-there is no ship for you, there is no road.As you have ruined your life herein this little corner, you have destroyed it in the whole world.2"
Author: C.P. Cavafy
