Why?


The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, 'What is the use of climbing Mount Everest?' and my answer must at once be, 'It is no use.' We shall not bring back a single bit of gold or silver, not a gem, nor any coal or iron. We shall not find a single foot of earth that can be planted with crops to raise food. It's no use. So, if you cannot understand that there is something in man which responds to the challenge of this mountain and goes out to meet it, that the struggle is the struggle of life itself upward and forever upward, then you won't see why we go. What we get from this adventure is just sheer joy. And joy is, after all, the end of life. We do not live to eat and make money. We eat and make money to be able to enjoy life. That is what life means and what life is for.
- George Leigh Mallory, 1922

härra Oz taaskord

Friendship between a woman and a man is something much more precious and rare than love: love is actually something quite gross and even clumsy compared to friendship. Friendship includes a measure of sensitivity, attentiveness, generosity, and finely tuned sense of moderation.

Papa Mussman

A little wickedness and people are hell to each other. A little compassion, a little generosity, and people find paradise in each other.

'I said a little compassion and generosity, but I didn't say love: I'm not such a believer in universal love. Love of everybody for everybody - we should maybe leave that to Jesus. Love is another thing altogether. It is nothing whatever like generosity and nothing whatever like compassion. On the contrary. Love is a curious mixture of opposites, a blend of extreme selfishness and total devotion. A paradox! Besides which, love, everybody is always talking about love, love, but love isn't something you choose, you catch it, like a disease, you get trapped in it, like a disaster. So what is it that we do choose? What do human beings have to choose between every minute of the day? Generosity, or meanness. Every little child knows that, and yet wickedness still doesn't come to an end. How can you explain that? It seems we got it all from the apple that we ate back then: we ate a poisoned apple.'

Euroopa murrab…

…kreeka kultuuri- ja ühiskonnamudelit. Nimet oli kreeka tüüp eile peale kodumaalt naasmist täiesti masenduses, et enam ei peetagi siestat (umb. kolmest-neljast seitsmeni). ja nagu sellest veel vähe oleks, aga lisaks sunnitakse inimesi veel töötama lausa 8 tundi päevas… no ja siis muidugi muud mehejutud, eelkõige devil made me do it – rootsi naised ja prantsuse naised jne…

õige eesti mees

ehk "tantsin siis kui mina tahan, mitte siis kui neeger tahab"...tegelt oli fubar täitsa lahe koht ja must mees oma juttudega samuti entertaining. coolersis vms mitte enam niiväga, see-eest oli hommikune inimtühi linn väga chill.

muidu möödub elu seinal - 5b on juba peaaegu kökimöki ja sealt ülespoole paras challenge. 6a'st olen kah paar korda jagu saanud. progress! aga 3 tunniga jõuab tegelt ainult mingi 7-8 korda rada teha...

ja siis seks&linn* tüüpi ost - Sinn (Spezialuhren zu Frankfurt am Main)


*kuus 1 paar manolo blahnikuid ja seejärel 4 nädalat kuivikuid.
