“Among wise men there is no place at all left for hatred. For no one except the greatest of fools would hate good men. And there is no reason at all for hating the bad.

And if this is so, since we think of people who are sick in body as deserving sympathy rather than hatred, much more so do they deserve pity rather than blame who suffer an evil more severe than any physical illness.”
Boethius, The Consolation of Philosophy

Connie Palmen
“Het zal nog jaren duren voordat ik oor krijg voor die wijsheid van het lichaam, dat me met een hardnekkige trouw laat weten dat het er is en dat me herhaaldelijk iets probeert te vertellen waar ik wat aan zou kunnen hebben, als ik het maar versta.

“Verslaving heeft volgens mij altijd te maken met het herstellen van een evenwicht tussen gevoel en verstand. Iemand die veel drinkt benevelt zijn geest en dat benevelen is noodzakelijk om een controle over het lichaam te verliezen. Je houdt dat lichaam alleen maar rechtop, voedt, wast en kleedt het naar behoren, als je nadenkt. Je kunt ook te veel nadenken over het lichaam en het daardoor belemmeren in het ondergaan van plezier, van genot.”
Connie Palmen, De Vriendschap

Anthony Marais
“The psyche exists (quite happily, one might add) on an entirely different plane than the body: whereas the body is inextricably bound to time, degrading day-by-day on its 85-year death trek, the psyche is, indeed, ageless, blending its memories into a single unit. It simply collects information—and “maturing” is really nothing more than a judgement of the quality of that information.”
Anthony Marais
