Certainly we ought to be discontented, we ought not simply to find out ways of making the best of a bad job, and yet if we kill all pleasure in the actual process of life, what sort of future are we preparing for ourselves?
Repentinamente, hacia fines de marzo, se produce el milagro, y el arruinado barrio en donde vivo se transfigura.
Desdetodos los febreros me elefahte encontrado pensando que esta vez el invierno va a ser permanente. Satyagrahafirst evolved in South Africa, was a sort of non-violent warfare, a way of defeating the enemy without hurting him and without feeling or arousing hatred.

Frequently one comes upon shapeless masses of ten or twenty toads rolling over and over in the water, one clinging to another without distinction of sex. Aunque son criaturas diminutas, son, sin embargo, no muy diferentes de los seres humanos en su forma externa, y tampoco en la naturaleza moral.
