Into the Lion's Den: Homepage of Joshua Bodyfelt

How many years of fatigue and punishment it takes to learn the simple truth that work, that disagreeable thing, is the only way of not suffering in life, or at all events, of suffering less.

-Charles Baudelaire

Non è sanza cagion l'andare al cupo.

-Dante Alighieri

Shake off all the fears of servile prejudices, under which weak minds are servilely crouched. Fix reason firmly in her seat, and call on her tribunal for every fact, every opinion. Question with boldness even the existence of a God; because, if there be one, he must more approve of the homage of reason than that of blindfolded fear.

-Thomas Jefferson

Life is beautiful. Let the future generations cleanse it of all evil, oppression and violence, and enjoy it to the full.

-Leon Trotsky
