Enduring Wisdom from Abraham Lincoln

Image

1. “It is true that you may fool all of the people some of the time; you can even fool some of the people all of the time; but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time.”

2. “Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”

3. “Character is like a tree and reputation its shadow. The shadow is what we think it is and the tree is the real thing.”

4. “I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.”

5. “He has a right to criticize, who has a heart to help.”

6. “I am not concerned that you have fallen — I am concerned that you arise.”

7. “The probability that we may fail in the struggle ought not to deter us from the support of a cause we believe to be just.”

8. “Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality.”

9. “No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.”

10. “If you once forfeit the confidence of your fellow citizens, you can never regain their respect and esteem.”

11. “The best way to predict your future is to create it”

12. “Those who look for the bad in people will surely find it.”

13. “Live a good life. In the end it is not the years in a life, but the life in the years.”

14. “People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be.”

15. “Whenever I hear anyone arguing for slavery, I feel a strong impulse to see it tried on him personally.”

Sunset love…

Image

Sunset -

Standing next to you

Barefoot,

Watching bloody sky.

Silence –

Warm breeze touches the skin

Shiver of desire.

Tender smile on your lips –

Almost a sin…

Your eyes are lost in thoughts,

Mine…on your face.

Under a starry sky and lonely tree –

Longing for a kiss

The heart bits fast…

 

Love and sunset,

Bitter liquor in my veins.

Intoxicating soul,

Whispers in the night.

And you…

You… will never know

What my dream was like.

The Milgram Experiment – Can you kill somebody?

A mind blowing experiment which just horrified and made me rethink the whole idea I had about Second World War and also about the present times. This reminds me of some quotes from “East of Eden”  by J. Steinbeck:

“But Cain lived and had children, and Abel lives only in the story. We are Cain’s children.”

“We are  violent people. Maybe it’s true that we are all descended from the restless, the nervous, the criminals, the arguers and brawlers, but also the brave and independent and generous. And so we’re overbrave and overfearful – we’re kind and cruel as children.”
