"Lots of twists till now. It smelled something fishy in chapter 2 only, when pigs showed a glimpse of dominance. But then war with humans and role of Snowball there made it feel like Animal Farm is going good.

The heated debates between Snowball and Napolean has been depicted from quite early on. Amidst all this, I forgot what Napolean did quite early! As of now, it seems like physical power is all that matters!"

"As I somehow made my way through the chapter "Lambda the Ultimate", I guess it's time to give the book some rest.

This book is really awesome in explaining recursion, but somehow lambdas and collections didn't make much sense to me.

And although I somehow completed the chapter, and even started the next one, I didn't feel a good sense of understanding of the matter.

I will be jumping back to this book soon!"

Mahatma Gandhi
“In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
Mahatma Gandhi

John Steinbeck
“I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Bruce Lee
“A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer.”
Bruce Lee

José Martí
“But love, like the sun that it is, sets afire and melts everything. what greed and privilege to build up over whole centuries the indignation of a pious spirit, with its natural following of oppressed souls, will cast down with a single shove.”
Jose Marti

Kahlil Gibran
“When love beckons to you follow him, Though his ways are hard and steep. And when his wings enfold you yield to him, Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you. And when he speaks to you believe in him, Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden. For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning. Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun, So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth......

But if in your fear you would seek only love's peace and love's pleasure, Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love's threshing-floor, Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears. Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.

Love possesses not nor would it be possessed; For love is sufficient unto love. And think not you can direct the course of love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course. Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself."

But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To know the pain of too much tenderness. To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.”
Kahlil Gibran, Le Prophète
