1. "When you are from a well-respected family, often times you will have pressure to "live up to your family name." That is to say, depending on your family's reputation, you will have to live in accordance with that reputation so that other people keep thinking of your family in the way it is used to being thought of. If you come from a family of do-gooders, then it is important to do good. If you come from a family of investors, it is important to make lots of money. If you come from a family of plastic surgeons, you should know how to pick a nose. And if you do not live up to your family name, then possibly your family will disown you. Which isn't really nice, but can happen."

Today's Quote

Je ne juge pas? Si, je juge, je passe mon temps à juger. Ils m'irritent profondément ceux qui vous demandent, les yeux faussement horrifiés : "Ne seriez-vous pas en train de me juger?" Si, bien sûr, je vous juge, je n'arrête pas de vous juger. Tout être doté d'une conscience à l'obligation de juger. Mais les sentences que je prononce n'affectent pas l'existence des "prévenus". J'accorde mon estime ou je la retire, je dose mon affabilité, je suspends mon amitié en attendant un complément de preuves, je m'éloigne, je me rapproche, je me détourne, j'accorde un sursis, je passe l'éponge -ou je fais semblant. La plupart des intéressés ne s'en rendent même pas compte. Je ne communique pas mes jugements, je ne suis pas un donneur de leçons, l'observation du monde ne suscite chez moi qu-un dialogue intérieur, un interminable dialogue avec moi-même."
