„When we wish to correct with advantage, and to show another that he errs, we must notice from what side he views the matter, for on that side it is usually true, and admit that truth to him, but reveal to him the side on which it is false. He is satisfied with that, for he sees that he was not mistaken, and that he only failed to see all sides. Now, no one is offended at not seeing everything; but one does not like to be mistaken, and that perhaps arises from the fact that man naturally cannot see everything, and that naturally he cannot err in the side he looks at, since the perceptions of our senses are always true.”

…„Dragostea de fată mare,
Ca fasola din caldare,

Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, someone that makes a before and after in your life.

His weary glance, from passing by the bars,
Has grown into a dazed and vacant stare;

But there are times the pupils of his eyes
Dilate, the strong limbs stand alert, apart,
Tense with the flood of visions that arise
Only to sink and die within his heart.
