doctors and lawyers

Doctors are just the same as lawyers; the only difference
is that lawyers merely rob you, whereas doctors rob you
and kill you too.
Anton Chekhov

Looking with the glass eyes

One can be like a wind-up doll
and look at the world with eyes of glass,
one can lie for years in lace and tinsel
a body stuffed with straw
inside a felt-lined box,
and at every lustful touch
for no reason at all
one can give out a cry
"Ah, so happy am I !"
Forough Farrokhzad

Simply simple

I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life
is best for everyone, best both for the body and the mind.
