Quotes

    Ekaterina Oguryaevahas quoted7 years ago
    Why? Oh! Now I remember the words of the monk at Mont Saint-Michel: “Can we see the hundred-thousandth part of what exists? Listen; there is the wind which is the strongest force in nature; it knocks men down, blows down buildings, uproots trees, raises the sea into mountains of water, destroys cliffs, and casts great ships on to the breakers; it kills, it whistles, it sighs, it roars, – have you ever seen it, and can you see it? It exists for all that, however!”
    Nikola Stajichas quoted22 days ago
    ‘He who takes delight in deceiving others must not complain when he is deceived himself.’”
    Nikola Stajichas quoted22 days ago
    which being translated means: ‘He who takes delight in deceiving others must not complain when he is deceived himself.’”
