About Swans



Be courteous to all, but intimate with few and let those few be
well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship
is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the
shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.

--George Washington

An age which is incapable of poetry is incapable of any kind of literature except the cleverness of a decadence.
--Raymond Chandler

You don't have to burn books to destroy a culture. Just get people to stop reading them.
--Ray Bradbury

I believe in the brotherhood of man and the uniqueness of the individual; but if you ask me what I believe, I can't.

For me there are no answers, only questions, and I am grateful that the questions go on and on. I don’t look for an answer, because I don’t think there is one. I'm very glad to be the bearer of a question.
--P. L. Travers

Destroying is an economic construction. So, the more destruction occurs the better the economy is. It's a no brainer...


--Gilles d'Aymery

They died in silence for humanity had closed its ears to their cry...
--Khalil Gibran Khalil

You never change the existing reality by fighting it. Instead, create a new model that makes the old one obsolete.
--Buckminster Fuller

Hungry man, reach for the book: It is a weapon.
--Bertolt Brecht

War does not determine who is right — only who is left.
--Bertrand Russell

La verdad tiene muy pocos amigos y los muy pocos amigos que tiene son suicidas.
--Antonio Porchia
