    Rambling

    I believe underneath it all we are needing to feel we are the best at something. In this world there is always someone better at cooking, football, lactating, skating, sewing, or whatever you're into. There is a basic need left unrequited. We need to feel we are the best at...

    Cardinal Newman

    Hence it is that it is almost a definition of a gentleman to say that he is one who never inflicts pain. This description is both refined and, as far as it goes, accurate. He is mainly occupied in merely removing the obstacles which hinder the free and unembarrassed action of...
