At least two thirds of our miseries spring from human stupidity,

human malice and those great motivators and justifiers of malice and stupidity,

idealism, dogmatism and proletizing zeal on behalf of religious or political ideals

Aldous Huxley

If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate

back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago.

If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

Quand la tour de Pise penche vers la droite, c'est qu'il va pleuvoir. Quand elle penche vers la gauche, c'est que vous arrivez par l'autre bout de la rue.

François Cavanna

When the Tower of Pisa leans to the right, it's going to rain.  When it leans to the left, you are coming from the other end of the street.

They fock you up, your mum and dad.

They may not mean to, but they do.

They fill you with the faults they had

And add some extra, just for you.

But they were focked up in their turn

By fools in old-style hats and coats,

Who half the time were soppy-stern

And half at one another's throats.

Man hands on misery to man.

It deepens like a coastal shelf.

Get out as early as you can,

And don't have any kids yourself.
Philip Larkin
