The reason why it is easy to kill another person must be that one's imagination is too sluggish to conceive what his life means to him.
~ Virginia Woolf

You can be a genius, but nobody will agree unless you can present your ideas in a fashion easy to understand.

Ah, but a man's reach should exceed its grasp,
Or what's a heaven for?


Robert Browning.










I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
