People long for power, goods and glory.
Reality is fixed, reality is grim. (Hobbes)
Just google monkey+cucumber+grape to see an unforgettable expression of what is hard to call anything but moral outrage (the gap between is and ought).
Voor een kind is de wereld.
Voor een adolescent de wereld ought.
Ideas are not proofs.
Ideeën bewijzen niks.
One goal of philosophy is to enlarge our ideas of what is possible.
Self-deception is always an option.

(bij het lezen van Susan Neiman)
