"Studying history, my friend, is no joke and no irresponsible game. To study history one must know in advance that one is attempting something fundamentally impossible, yet necessary and highly important. To study history means submitting to chaos and nevertheless retaining faith in order and meaning. It is a very serious task, young man, and possibly a tragic one."

Herman Hesse

I totally agree. Yet, I believe that is one of the most intriguing part of studying history - ok, sometimes I hate it, but it's all part of the fun, isn't it? ;)

Questa chiusura nei confronti di Clipper è una chiusura a tutto il mondo dello spotting italiano. Questa decisione è in controtendenza rispetto agli altri paesi europei dove lo spotter anzichè ostacolato viene rispettato, considerato e agevolato. [cit. Roma Spotters Club]

'There is no gainsaying that Adam was the king of the world, as was Robinson Crusoe of his island, precisely because he was the sole habitant; and the great advantage of such an empire was that the monarch, secure upon his throne, had no occasion to fear rebellions, wars or conspirators. ' [cit.]

"The energy of the Universe made the Sun, but I do not know what this Universe is. I know that it does exists, because there are the stars, because the are the galaxies, because the Universe is outside there. But I do not know why it exists!
Sciene acknowledges the existence of the Universe, and explains how it works and how it is made; however, sciene simply does not know why it exists."

Margherita Hack, died June 29, 2013

And thus I clothe my naked villany / With odd old ends stol'n out of holy writ, / And seem a saint, when most I play the devil. [cit.]
