To refuse a hearing to an opinion, because one is sure that it is false, is to assume that one's own certainty is the same thing as absolute certainty. All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility.
- John Stuart Mill -

None shall be one's slave, none shall be one's master; everyone shall have the same rights, same priviledges, same justice.

- Antti Chydenius -

Any sufficiently sophisticated human thought is impossible to distinguish from artificial intelligence.

Elämän puutarhassa

Ruukinmatruuna surffaili päivänä muutamana verkon laineilla, ja törmäsi tällaiseen. Tämä lienee melko vanha juttu, mutta kauneudessaan ylittämätön, joten pääsköön se tänne.

THE GARDEN OF LIFE

How To Plant Your Garden.
First, you "Come to the garden alone, while the dew is still on the roses"....

PLANT THREE ROWS OF PEAS:
1. Peas of mind
2. Peas of heart
3. Peas of soul

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF SQUASH:
1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash grumbling
4. Squash selfishness

PLANT FOUR ROWS OF LETTUCE:
1. Lettuce be faithful
2. Lettuce be kind
3. Lettuce be patient
4. Lettuce really love one another

NO GARDEN IS WITHOUT TURNIPS:
1. Turnip for meetings
2. Turnip for service
3. Turnip to help one another

TO CONCLUDE OUR GARDEN WE MUST HAVE THYME:
1. Thyme for each other
2. Thyme for family
3. Thyme for friends

WATER FREELY WITH PATIENCE AND CULTIVATE WITH LOVE.
THERE IS MUCH FRUIT IN YOUR GARDEN BECAUSE YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW.

Tähän ei ole oikeastaan enää mitään lisättävää - ikävää, ettei sitä oikein voi kääntää suomeksi.
