Monday Morning on the Path To Destruction

"Dans mon propre pays, je suis dans un pays lointain.
Je suis fort, mais n'ont aucun pouvoir.
Je gagne tout en demeurant un perdant.
Au point du jour, je dis bonne nuit.
Quand je m'allonge j'ai très peur de tomber."

"In my own country I am in a far off land.
I am strong but have no power.
I win all yet remain a loser.
At break of day I say goodnight.
When I lie down I have great fear of falling."

-Francois Villon (1431-1464)


"For at least another hundred years we must pretend to ourselves and to every one that fair is foul and foul is fair; for foul is useful and fair is not. Avarice and usury and precaution must be our gods for a little longer still."

-John Maynard Keynes
