Erkenntnis ist eine Sonne, die den Menschengeist erleuchtet; sie breitet nach allen Richtungen hin ihre glänzenden Radien aus; sie erfüllt mit ihrer Klarheit die Welt, und der Geist schwimmt auf ihren hellen Strahlen und badet sich im Lichtmeer.
From the backstabbing co-worker to the meddling sister-in-law, you are in charge of how you react to the people and events in your life.

As to dancing, my dear, I never dance, unless I am allowed to do it in my own peculiar way. There is no use trying to describe it: it has to be seen to be believed.
