Cities

SHARE
They can print statistics and count the populations in hundreds of thousands, but to each man a city consists of no more than a few streets, a few houses, a few people. Remove those few and a city exists no longer except as a pain in the memory, like a pain of an amputated leg no longer there.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.


Lao Tzu

Safe space. That's the POINT of a university. To be a safe space for intellectual freedom in a world largely hostile to that concept.

Charles Murray


Foreigners are like seasoning, put in too much and you ruin the soup.

John Derbyshire

This moment isn’t just a stepping stone to get to another place. It’s the destination. I’m already here. 

Leo Babauta

The test of a vocation is the love of the drudgery in involves.

Logan Pearsall Smith
