Today’s Quotation

“To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do.”

– Hermann Hesse.

About Ben Naga

The Spirit that graces me with its passing has no name and stems not from thoughts and words, though it gathers them up as it flows, but from feeling.

  2. Many thanks for the nomination. I just noticed it a few minutes ago. I’m working diligently on a script right now, but I’ll try to get to it within the next day or so. Best regards, M.A.

    • No pressure. As I see it, this is not ultimately about advertising either of us, but those whom we wish to advertise. (Or is it?)There is of course plenty of advertising in flight already without any help from us. 🙂

      Besides, I am curious to know which quotations you might choose.

      And thank you for taking the time and effort to respond, which is appreciated.
