Quote by Neil Gaiman
Writing's a lot like cooking. Sometimes the cake won't rise, no matter what you do, and every now and again the cake tastes better than you ever could have dreamed it would.
This quote emphasizes the similarities between writing and cooking by drawing a parallel between making a cake and writing a piece. It suggests that in both endeavors, there can be instances of difficulty and obstacles, represented by the cake not rising, despite efforts. However, it also highlights the moments of pleasant surprise and accomplishment, when the outcome surpasses expectations, symbolized by the cake tasting better than expected. Ultimately, the quote implies that both cooking and writing require perseverance through challenges and can lead to extraordinary outcomes.
In una parola, ero troppo codardo per fare quello che sapevo essere giusto, cosÃ¬ come ero stato troppo codardo per evitare di fare quello che sapevo sbagliato.

Genio assolutamente naturale, scoprii questa linea di condotta tutto da solo.
All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysis and to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defense. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.
