The person who tries to live alone will not succeed as a human being. His heart withers if it does not answer another heart. His mind shrinks away if he hears only the echos of his own thoughts and finds no other inspiration.

So I should get a roommate? Right now I'd rather have my mind wither for a while.

I have had the coolest word verifications lately. This one is 'kirve'. A kirve is the person who holds the boy during the circumsicion amongst the Azeris of Azerbaijan. I am so glad I googled that. http://www.azeris.com/history/adr/keykurun/keykurun16.htm

Neha, do you think I'm failing as a human being?

I feel okay.

you know david, i had no idea that you guys would be so moved by this innocent looking quote.
in fact, i did not 'get it' when the captain said. barely registered when SD said it; and think this thing needs a response when you say it too!!

...

but as you said, deleting is as much a part of writing. I have deleted my response too...

now i truely hope that you do not fail as a human being. :P
