Cheers!

3. Thinking about this quote

I don't think the grave has done much to silence him.

6. Here's the segment it was taken from. What a contrarian!!

“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.”

7. Wow, that's a lot to take in

In contrast tho the people he was up against promoted humbleness and humility while wearing gold and having their every need taken care of.
