Behind Closed Doors
Oct 21, 2014

to leave behind the poverty of their villages.

mock and what not besides, with a variation and multiplication of
variation which makes the tongue envious.
– Michel de Montaigne

Power of Two

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work.
If one falls down, his friend can help him up.
- Ecclesiastes 4
