respect man’s nature without wishing it more palatable than it is.


where not everything is present but each word, each look, each movement has things underlying.

more quotes from his book in the future.  i dont’ agree with everything he says, but i always do find myself coming back to a lot of his core principles.  i also, like him, find it handy to have ideas and self imposed guides to work within.

full book is available here.
