A group of creatures seriously intent on being a group, should be seriously avoided at all intellectual crosswalks. (In individual cases, sometimes the light can be against you, even when it’s your own.)
The Ultimate Indignity:
To be unknowingly
introduced to yourself.
A ruler once said to his dog, “Ah, I do so cherish our friendship.” And the pup replied, “Our relationship is really one of the dominant with the submissive.” And the master said, “I prefer to think of it as friendship.” And the dog said, “That’s the benefit of being the dominant – you can think of it any way you like."
Only the dying fear excitement.
An intellect without vistas wider than words is too provincial.
