Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy.”

—John Stuart Mill (18061873)
“I dont like your miserable lonely single front name. It is so limited, so meagre; it has no versatility; it is weighted down with the sense of responsibility; it is worn threadbare with much use; it is as bad as having only one jacket and one hat; it is like having only one relation, one blood relation, in the world. Never set a child afloat on the flat sea of life with only one sail to catch the wind.”
—D.H. (David Herbert)
