“Man is by nature a social animal; an individual who is unsocial naturally
and not accidentally is either beneath our notice or more than human.
Society is something in nature that precedes the individual. Anyone who
either cannot lead the common life or is so self-sufficient as not to need

Aristotle

“Aronson's first law:

People who do crazy things are not necessarily crazy.”
Elliot Aronson, The Social Animal
