Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit

"Someday, perhaps, the memory of even these things will be pleasant"
--from the Aeneid (no doubt this should the motto for internship!)

Thinking of happiness again. After a week adjusting to the new milieu of Durham Regional, I looked forward to settling in at a table at Foster's. After two cappucino's and the omelet special around noon, a sour-faced lady suggested I leave because "we ask that you not study on brunch days" and that there were people waiting (incidentally there were free tables and undergrads scattered throughout...studying).

I left not having the energy to argue.

To pump my spirits up I read parts of A River Runs Through It to myself. What a jewel of a book.

Thirty years after my last formal encounter with Vergil, I mailed this quote to a colleague whose husband is languishing in an ICU. I came upon your site when, after I'd already mailed off my condolence, I decided to double-check my spelling of the Latin text. Thank you for your anecdote, and although I fully appreciate your application of this hallowed line, I am certain you will one day find a more pointed application

While reading this post I remembered Beethhoven music... What do you think about it???

The only bodily organ which is really regarded as inferior is the atrophied penis, a girl's clitoris.

The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them.

There is no great genius without some touch of madness.

Civilization is the progress toward a society of privacy. The savage's whole existence is public, ruled by the laws of his tribe. Civilization is the process of setting man free from men.

The violence in the world comes about because we human beings are forever creating barriers between men who are like us and men who are not like us.

The French are wiser than they seem, and the Spaniards seem wiser than they are.

To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection.

Immortality. I notice that as soon as writers broach this question they begin to quote. I hate quotation. Tell me what you know.

The envious man thinks that if his neighbor breaks a leg, he will be able to walk better himself.

There is one, and only one, thing in modern society more hideous than crime - namely, repressive justice

If a man were to say he chose something impossible he would be thought a fool; but we can wish for things that are impossible, for instance immortality.

On earth there is nothing great but man; in man there is nothing great but mind.

Mankind are, in all ages, caught by the same baits: the same tricks played over and over again, still trepan them.

Natural rights is simple nonsense: natural and imprescriptible rights, rhetorical nonsense - nonsense upon stilts.

The infliction of cruelty with a good conscience is a delight to moralists. That is why they invented Hell.

Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.

Common sense is the best distributed commodity in the world, for every man is convinced that he is well supplied with it.

In history, in social life, nothing is fixed, rigid or definitive. And nothing ever will be.
