Quote by Albert Schweitzer
Man is a clever animal who behaves like an imbecile.
This quote suggests that while humans possess intelligence and the ability to reason, they frequently display foolish or irrational behavior. Despite their capacity for cleverness, humans often act in ways that seem unwise or lacking in judgment. It implies that humans sometimes fail to utilize their intelligence effectively and instead make choices that appear foolish or unintelligent.
On page 605, Blumenthal says that 'I made friends with Hitchens's friends the novelists Martin Amis and Salman Rushdie.' True in its way. I particularly remember the occasion when he called me up and invited me to dinner with Dick Morris, but only on condition that I brought Rushdie (who was staying in my house) along with me. No Rushdie: no invitation. So I never did get to meet Dick Morris.
The mother as a social servant instead of a home servant will not lack in true mother duty. From her work, loved and honored though it is, she will return to her home life, the child life, with an eager, ceaseless pleasure, cleansed of all the fret and fraction and weariness that so mar it now.
