Men do what is called a good action, as some piece of courage or charity, much as they would pay a fine in expiation of daily non-appearance on parage.? Thier works are done as an apology or extenuation of thier living in the world.-as invalids and the insane pay a high? board.? Thier virtues are penances.? I do not wish to expiate, but to live.? My life is for itself and not a spectacle.?I can not consent to pay for privilege where I have intrinsic right.

There is a saying that every nice piece of work needs the right person in the right place at the right time.

I guess we'd be living in a boring, perfect world if everybody wished everybody else well.
My mother opened a bank account for me when I made $60 on my first day of work as an extra. She's that kind of mother.
