1. "Maybe the knowledge is too great and maybe men are growing too small. Maybe, kneeling down to atoms, they're becoming atom-sized in their souls. Maybe a specialist is only a coward, afraid to look out of his little cage. And think what any specialist misses -the whole world over his fence."
East of Eden (p. 538)
Don't worry, Sir! A whole world is travelling like crazy now, for business, for vacation, for partying... etc. The industry depends so much on tourism, no?
And Tom sees that my simplicity is "so simple yet not"... hehe. The comment makes my day, and so I told him that it's the simple from the third mountain Zen look, a bit haughty but I don't mind showing my pride.
Any of you who doesn't understand this please do not say that I'm harming a sentiment, ok? kakaka...
2. "Can you think that whatever made us -would stop trying?"
East of Eden (p. 599)
No, sir! There still are debts to repay. If we inherit fortune we also have to inherit misfortune too, and it's simple just a fair job. And whenever the Fair Element is involved I believe our ancestors still have to try.
3. Some of you maybe see me as rude when I say that we are not from God but from a few high moments our ancestors felt about themselves. We only belong to God when we succeed in building us each a soul and make it brilliant like those stars we see there in the dark sky. That is totally our own personal attempt, partly based on their guiding advices as a sure fortune we inherit.
