Quote by Albert Camus
Real generosity toward the future lies in giving all to the present.
This quote suggests that true generosity involves fully dedicating oneself to the present moment and making the most of it. Instead of constantly planning and focusing on the future, being generous means giving all of one's energy, resources, and attention to the present. By doing so, individuals can have a positive impact on the future by actively engaging in the here and now. It reminds us that true generosity involves embracing the present opportunities and making the most out of them without holding back.
Love has different shades. Like the way I loved Cassia when I thought she'd never love me. The way I loved her on the Hill. The way I love her now that she came into the canyon for me. It's different. Deeper. I thought I loved her and wanted her before, but as we walk through the canyon together I realize this could be more than a new shade. A whole new color.
It is a commonplace that the history of civilisation is largely the history of weapons. In particular, the connection between the discovery of gunpowder and the overthrow of feudalism by the bourgeoisie has been pointed out over and over again. And though I have no doubt exceptions can be brought forward, I think the following rule would be found to be generally true that ages in which the dominant weapon is expensive or difficult to make will be ages of despotism, whereas when the dominant weapon is cheap and simple, the common people have a chance. Thus, for example, tanks, battleships and bombing planes are inherently tyrannical weapons, while rifles, muskets, longbows and handgrenades are inherently democratic weapons. A complex weapon makes the strong stronger, while a simple weapon so long as there is no answer to it gives claws to the weak.
