Quote by Antonio Machado
I dreamt -- marvellous error! -- that I had a beehive here inside my heart. And the golden bees were making white combs and sweet honey from my old failures.
The quote speaks of a dream where the speaker envisions having a beehive in their heart. This imaginative concept highlights their ability to convert past failures into something beautiful and worthwhile. The "golden bees" represent the transformative power within oneself, as they turn the "white combs" of past mistakes into "sweet honey." It suggests the notion of finding value and growth in one's failures and using them as a source of inspiration and nourishment for future endeavors. The quote encourages embracing and learning from one's mistakes to create something positive out of them.
To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what he's doing is good... Ideology - that is what gives devildoing its long-sought justification and gives the evildoer the necessary steadfastness and determination. That is the social theory which helps to make his acts seem good instead of bad in his own and others' eyes, so that he won't hear reproaches and curses but will receive praise and honors.
