Perhaps no mightier conflict of mind occurs ever again in a lifetime than that first decision to unseat one's own tooth.
We are the prisoners of ideas.
We know better than we do. We do not yet possess ourselves...

You can't comfort the afflicted with afflicting the comfortable,
The archenemy is the arch stupid!

The term up has no meaning apart from the word down. The term fast has no meaning apart from the term slow. In addition such terms have no meaning even when used together, except when confined to a very particular situation... most of our language about the organization and objective's of government is made up of such polar terms. Justice and injustice are typical. A reformer who wants to abolish injustice and create a world in which nothing but justice prevails is like a man who wants to make everything up. Such a man might feel that if he took the lowest in the world and carried it up to the highest point and kept on doing this, everything would eventually become up. This would certainly move a great many objects and create an enormous amount of activity. It might or might not be useful, according to the standards which we apply. However it would never result in the abolishment of down.
More will mean worse.
Success has made failures of many men.
