    "By three methods we may learn wisdom:

    first, by reflection, which is noblest;

    second, by imitation, which is easiest;

    and third, by experience, which is the most bitter."


    Confucius.

    Today I begin to understand what love must be, if it exists. When we are parted, we each feel the lack of the other half of ourselves. We are incomplete like a book in two volumes of which the first has been lost. That is what I imagine love to be: incompleteness in absence.

    It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.

    My mind," he said, "rebels at stagnation.
    Give me problems, give me work, give me the most abstruse cryptogram or the most intricate analysis, and I am in my own proper atmosphere.
    I can dispense then with artificial stimulants.
    But I abhor the dull routine of existence.
    I crave for mental exaltation.
    That is why I have chosen my own particular profession, or rather created it,
    for I am the only one in the world.”
