    It is an evil world. The fires of hatred and violence burn fiercely. Evil is powerful, the devil covers a darkened earth with his black wings. And soon the end of the world is expected. But mankind does not repent, the church struggles, and the preachers and poets warn and lament in vain.
    Johan Huizinga (1872–1945)

    Some children act as if they thought their parents had nothing to do, but to see them established in the world and then quit it.
    Samuel Richardson (1689–1761)
