A Nice Place to Read and Make Friends

Risk Over Reward Equals Crime or Punishment or Victatorship

Never was anything great achieved without danger.
— Niccolò Machiavelli (1469-1527)

The titled responsion looks like a comfortable place when you look at the photo. In response to Machiavelli's quote, the ideal is to make friends in dangerous times.

Unfortunately, we live in an age where people are too afraid to take chances. The fact of the matter is that no matter what we try, nothing good ever comes out of nothing. No amount of risk-taking will ever help us achieve anything that will make us proud. We are not built for the journey. We are built for the destination. We are not built for the unknown. We are not built for taking risks.

That being said, I still believe that everyone's life could be better if we lived as if we were running on empty. This could mean that if you work for someone else, you can work more hours and get paid more. It also means you don't have to worry about the consequences of your actions. No matter what you want, you can be sure that there are consequences involved. No one can predict the future. However, if you try to understand that you will pay the price eventually, you might be surprised at what you can accomplish. So why not take the risk?

Long-Term Habituation

Every man desires to live long, but no man wishes to be old.
— Jonathan Swift's (1667-1745)

The titled responsion is something that we become accustomed to over time. Swift is referring to everything that accompanies living a long life.  

There is a simple, profound, and yet very basic truth that every man desires to live long, yet no man wants to be old. This, of course, is because a man's life is much more than an accumulation of years, and each moment is the beginning of a new era of his life. But if this is true, why do many men desire to live long? What is it about living long that is so attractive? Is there a secret that every man should know to keep him young and vibrant? This article will reveal some essential secrets that every man must know about life. If he follows these secrets to their logical ends, then the man can not only maintain his youthful appearance and health but can live longer than most men ever dream of.

A man desires to live long because the longer he lives, the longer he can look forward to experiencing all the pleasures that he is capable of experiencing. This is a basic desire, and it is the reason why people wish to experience the world in order to find a treasure or experience that they have been longing to have. In order to keep yourself young and vibrant, you should understand that living for a long time is not a crime. Rather, you should see it as a way of life. You can look forward to the future and be sure that you will not have to make new discoveries as you go through the years.

If you really want to enjoy your life, you must keep up with the times. The world is always changing, and it changes every day. You should understand that you are not the center of the universe and that your age should not dictate the quality of your life. Instead, the focus should be on how good it feels to be alive. You should not look at your age and think about how long it will take for you to die, or about the number of years until your bones begin to break down. Instead, you should take pleasure in your life and be happy because it is yours to enjoy. If you make this your primary goal, you will discover that there is no such thing as aging, because your life will be the best it can be.

Hey Man, Take a Seat!

Blessed is the man who, having nothing to say, abstains from giving us wordy evidence of the fact.
— George Eliot (1818-1890)

The titled responsion is a misdirected pronoun, you see, George Eliot was a woman and that is a matter of fact. Telling her to sit down poking fun at her quote, which is just a little too wordy. Kinda like this response.

Prolong Your Passion

Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.
— James Joyce (1882-1941)

The titled responsion sounds like sound advice but in response to the cringy quote from Joyce sounds a little unsound.

Do you want to prolong your passion and not let it go? Many people have lost their passion after the fact of a relationship breakup. They still love their partners but don't feel like being around each other because they miss what they had before the relationship started, and there are problems in their lives.
