Dunno if this is more or less appalling, but if you text my Mom she'll eventually (potentially weeks later when she needs to place/receive a call and finally turns her phone on and sees the notification) call you back (quite possibly on the landline) and remind you that she doesn't know how to read texts on her phone and has no idea what you tried sending her.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.
