"Never give in, never give in, never give in." W.Churchill

***

The conditions of a solitary bird are five:

1. It flies to the highest point;
2. It does not suffer for company, not even of its own kind;
3. It aims its beak to the skies;
4. It does not have a definite color;
5. It sings very softly.

San Juan De la Cruz

***

"Take all that money that we spend on weapons and defence each year, and instead spend it feeding, clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, for ever, in peace." B.Hicks

"Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love. How on earth can you explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love? Put your hand on a stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with that special girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That's relativity".

Albert Einstein

that conquerors on horseback
are not many-legged gods, that they too drown
if plunged in the river,
then this is the year."
