    Information networks straddle the world. Nothing remains concealed. But the sheer volume of information dissolves the information. We are unable to take it all in.
    Günther Grass (b. 1927)

    Pleasure is necessarily reciprocal; no one feels it who does not at the same time give it. To be pleased, one must please. What pleases you in others, will in general please them in you.
    Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (1694–1773)
