"Even on the highest throne in the world, we are still sitting on our ass."
Michel de Montaigne
“It is not titles that honor men, but men that honor titles.”
“Man cannot endure his own littleness unless he can translate it into meaningfulness on the largest possible level."
"Man had to invent and create out of himself the limitations of perception and the equanimity to live on this planet. And so to the core of psychodynamics, the formation of the human character, is a study in human self-limitation and in the terrifying costs of that limitation.”
