Everyone wants to know their failures, but no one wants to be a failure. 

Morality dictates that we deprive others of theirs
whilst we adorn ourselves thus.

Without my past there would be no present me;
Without me present there would be no future mine.

I have the reed to write whatever I want;
I have the right to read whatever I want.

Man is more concerned with the capacity of the Universe than the capacity of their own minds.
