    Get the habit of analysis- analysis will in time enable synthesis to become your habit of mind.

    • Hamlet. To be, or not to be- that is the question:
      Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer

      The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
      Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
      And by opposing end them. To die- to sleep-
      No more; and by a sleep to say we end
      The heartache, and the thousand natural shocks

      That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
      Devoutly to be wish'd. To die- to sleep.
      To sleep- perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub!
      For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
      When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,

      Must give us pause. There's the respect
      That makes calamity of so long life.
      For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
      Th' oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,
      The pangs of despis'd love, the law's delay,

      The insolence of office, and the spurns
      That patient merit of th' unworthy takes,
      When he himself might his quietus make
      With a bare bodkin? Who would these fardels bear,
      To grunt and sweat under a weary life,

      But that the dread of something after death-
      The undiscover'd country, from whose bourn
      No traveller returns- puzzles the will,
      And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      Than fly to others that we know not of?

      Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
      And thus the native hue of resolution
      Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
      And enterprises of great pith and moment
      With this regard their currents turn awry

      And lose the name of action.- Soft you now!
      The fair Ophelia!- Nymph, in thy orisons
      Be all my sins rememb'red.


    --- Shakespeare--- Hamlet

    No man is an island,
    Entire of itself.
    Each is a piece of the continent,
    A part of the main.
    If a clod be washed away by the sea,
    Europe is the less.
    As well as if a promontory were.
    As well as if a manor of thine own
    Or of thine friend's were.
    Each man's death diminishes me,
    For I am involved in mankind.
    Therefore, send not to know
    For whom the bell tolls,
    It tolls for thee.

    Familiar things happen, and mankind does not bother about them. It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.

    The best way to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen is to go about repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for independence.

    Nature never said to me: Do not be poor; still less did she say: Be rich; her cry to me was always: Be independent.
