Comparatively few people know what a million dollars actually is. To the majority it is a gaseous concept, swelling or decreasing as the occasion suggests. In the minds of politicians, perhaps more than anywhere, the notion of a million dollars has this accordion-like ability to expand or contract; if they are disposing of it, the million is a pleasing sum, reflecting warmly upon themselves; if somebody else wants it, it becomes a figure of inordinate size, not to be compassed by the rational mind.
– Robertson DaviesRate it:
Compartiendo una experiencia extraña de mis años de estudiante en Manchester, Inglaterra, durante la década de 1970. Acababa de llegar en Inglaterra desde la India, y fue en busca de un alojamiento, básicamente una habitación para alquilar. Yo siempre solía llamar a los terratenientes ingleses por phnoe primero, para asegurarse de que la habitación estaba disponible, y luego visitar esas direcciones, ubicadas kilómetros de distancia, al tomar el autobús o un tren. A mi llegada, siempre me dijeron que, o bien no había espacio para nada o que la habitación estaba alquilado. Después de una docena de tales experiencias frustrantes, se hizo evidente para mí que la habitación estaba siempre disponible - pero los terratenientes ingleses y patronas eran reacios a alquilar a alguien como yo, un indio o una persona no blanca. Curiosamente, la habitación estaba siempre disponible para mi voz en el teléfono, porque mi voz no podía revelar, ya sea mi color de piel, o de mi carrera o mi origen nacional. El misterio se disipó por lo tanto, y sin embargo, esa comprensión fue sin duda un duro despertar para el color verdadero de la sociedad Inglés. Fue mi primer encuentro con los prejuicios y la discriminación, y el momento más impactante que destruye la inocencia por completo - especialmente después de venir de una cultura noble y la mejor educación que se enorgullece de la igualdad. Yo siempre seguiré siendo agradecidos a inglaterra para la mejor educación que he recibido durante mi doctorado y el máster, tanto como por ejemplo la exposición hacia el lado oscuro del mundo real. Años más tarde, después de llegar a Estados Unidos, me di cuenta de que Estados Unidos es un nuevo mundo maravilloso conjunto que da la bienvenida a todos, y trata a todos con respeto y dignidad que merecen. Dios bendiga a América!

Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter. Speech is often barren, but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled nest-egg; and, when it takes to cackling, will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.
– George EliotRate it:
Compromise is but the sacrifice of one right or good in the hope of retaining another -- too often ending in the loss of both.
