meditations in an emergency
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.


Лев Толстой очень любил детей, и все ему было мало. Приведет полную комнату, шагу ступить негде, а он все кричит: "Еще! Еще!"

Есть легенда о двух великих оружейниках:

Мастер Мурамаса делал самурайские мечи как разящее оружие.
Мастер Масамунэ - как оружие, которым защищают свою жизнь.
Чтобы сравнить их клинки вонзили в дно ручья. По течению плыли опавшие листья.
Все листья, что прикасались к мечу Мурамаса, оказывались рассеченными на две части.
Листья обплывали меч Масамунэ, не касаясь его.

"...sometimes he wondered if these translations might be the Trixia of old, trapped in the most effective slavery of all time, and still reaching out for hope. The Spider world was the only place her Focus allowed her to gaze upon. Maybe she was distorting what she heard, creating a dream of happiness in the only way that was left to her." - Vernor Vinge, "A Deepness in the Sky"

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Robert Frost
