If you assume that you know who I am after reading this, you are foolish.
If you are foolish enough, you will keep making that assumption.
Mit der Dummheit kaempfen Goetter selbst vergebens.
(Against stupidity the gods themselves struggle in vain.)
Beseligend war ihre Nähe
Und alle Herzen wurden weit;
Doch eine Würde, eine Höhe
Entfernte die Vertraulichkeit.
Those who only know one country know no country.
--Seymour Martin Lipset
The outsider will say, 'in fact, as a woman, I have no country.
As a woman I want no country. As a woman my country is the whole world.'
Oh, what lies there are in kisses!
And their guile so well prepared.
Sweet the snaring is, but this is
Sweeter still, to be ensnared.
--Heinrich Heine (as translated by Louis Untermeyer)
When lovely woman stoops to folly,
And finds too late that men betray,
What charm can soothe her melancholy?
What art can wash her tears away?
Necessity is far stronger than art.
