I’ve seen On “All That Jazz” (1979). Thoughts?
Un cămătar avea doi datornici. Unul era dator cu cinci sute de dinari, iar celălalt cu cincizeci.
Dar, neavând ei cu ce să plătească, i-a iertat pe amândoi. Deci, care dintre ei îl va iubi mai mult?
Simon, răspunzând, a zis: Socotesc că acela căruia i-a iertat mai mult. Iar El i-a zis: Drept ai judecat.
Și întorcându-se către femeie, a zis lui Simon: Vezi pe femeia aceasta? Am intrat în casa ta și apă pe picioare nu Mi-ai dat; ea însă, cu lacrimi, Mi-a udat picioarele și le-a șters cu părul ei.
Sărutare nu Mi-ai dat; ea însă de când am intrat, n-a încetat să-Mi sărute picioarele.
Cu untdelemn capul Meu nu l-ai uns; ea însă cu mir Mi-a uns picioarele.
De aceea îți zic: Iertate sunt păcatele ei cele multe, căci mult a iubit. Iar cui se iartă puțin, puțin iubește.
Să discutăm, în două cuvinte, despre acest citat.
One famous quotation by Terence (in his play Heauton Timorumenos) reads:
I am human, and I think nothing human is alien to me.
I think that’s true, that a person can have all the states, happiness, fury, envy, disgust, laughter, excitement, annoyance, and so on.
There’s one emotion, though, which is a bit more special – the innocence face-to-face with cynism.
I’ve seen “Snow White and the Huntsman” (2012). Some thoughts?
There’s an odd thing about pleasure – it changes as things happen.
If I want to watch a movie, I have a lot of pleasure finding out about the movie, I write it down, I’m excited. Then, as time passes by and I watch the movie, the pleasure decreases.
If I’m thinking about chocolate there’s a lot more pleasure before the process than in the process itself.
If I want to meet someone, I’m happy before the meeting, and partially happy during the meeting, but, at times, less happy. Do I wish to see a dear person again? Sure. I meet him/her, and I ignore him/her.
Preparing for a run is not the same as doing the run itself.
When I was young, it wasn’t clear to me why I should learn and get good grades. I got them, but their purpose was unclear.
I think I was a good student, at times much better than the average, but, as you can expect, there was still some room left to get even better.
When I was very young, I had lots of time. There was little to no guidance on what I should do with that time.
