Everyone has a name
Given them by God
And given them by their father and mother.

Each person has a name
Given them by their height and their way of smiling
And given them by their garment.

Each person has a name
Given them by the hills
And given them by their walls.

Each person has a name
Given them by the stars
And given them by their neighbours.

Each person has a name
Given them by their sins
And given by their longing.

Each person has a name
Given them by those who hate them
And given them by their love.

Each person has a name
Given them by their festivals
And given them by their work.

Each man has a name
Given them by the seasons of the year
And given them by their blindness.

Each person has a name
Given them by the sea
And given them by their death

Liquid architecture. It's like jazz - you improvise, you work together, you play off each other, you make something, they make something. And I think it's a way of - for me, it's a way of trying to understand the city, and what might happen in the city.

Thats a favorite quote of mine Godsmack. I need to commit it to memory for the next time someone comes up with that old and tired adage "what ever doesn't kill you makes you stronger" I've never believed that for a moment.
Thank you

It is clear, then, that wisdom is knowledge having to do with certain principles and causes. But now, since it is this knowledge that we are seeking, we must consider the following point: of what kind of principles and of what kind of causes is wisdom the knowledge?

The chapters follow one another like the consecutive blows of a hammer so that the reader begins to understand that psychology is not scientific, is not effective, is not motivated by compassion, is not trustworthy, does not provide meaningful labels or categorizations, and finally cannot heal the past
