>Wednesday, January 5,1944… Once when I was spending the night at Jacque's, I could no longer restrain my curiosity about her body, which she'd always hidden from me and which I'd never seen. I asked her whether, as proof of our friendship, we could touch each other's breasts. Jacque refused. I also had a terrible desire to kiss her, which I did. Every time I see a female nude, such as the Venus in my art history book, I go into ecstasy. Sometimes I find them so exquisite I have to struggle to hold back my tears. If only I had a girlfriend!

Some C.S. Lewis (author of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe if you're an illiterate who doesn't know)

"Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival."

"Affection is responsible for nine-tenths of whatever solid and durable happiness there is in our lives."

"Education without values, as useful as it is, seems rather to make man a more clever devil."

"Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point."

"Has this world been so kind to you that you should leave with regret? There are better things ahead than any we leave behind."

"Thirty was so strange for me. I've really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult."

"Let's pray that the human race never escapes from Earth to spread its iniquity elsewhere."

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”

and the big one, of course:

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.”

Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

The original quote was
When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,
I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;
I wasn't a Jew.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

I can only guess communist was changed to socialist in an attempt by socialists to pretend they were somehow in opposition to the nazis.

“Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialists conclude that we object to its being done at all. We disapprove of state education. Then the socialists say that we are opposed to any education. We object to a state religion. Then the socialists say that we want no religion at all. We object to a state-enforced equality. Then they say that we are against equality. And so on, and so on. It is as if the socialists were to accuse us of not wanting persons to eat because we do not want the state to raise grain.”

Overt partitioning of government and society is somewhat artificial, since government is the mechanism by which society at large coordinates on purpose. The most fundamental flaw and feature of government is that you don't get to opt out.

This of course entails a loss of freedom -- whatever society decides by way of government, you will have to abide by. However, prohibiting opt-outs is necessary to coordinate some very useful things. If people could opt out of paying for public goods or abiding by laws, it would probably not go well.

So then the question becomes: which things should be done in such a way that people cannot opt out? This is a difficult question on which people will often disagree.

It's a poetic way to say that foolish people don't learn from us wise philosophers, because they just squint at us ignorantly with their beady little eyes and tell us to stop mouthing off at the office ignoring everything we taught them. But a wise philosopherish person can learn not just from fellow wisemen, but even from stupid bossy muggles who, when they flap their jaw, teach said philosopher about what stupid and petty people they are. Because wise philosophers are super better than stupid foolish plebs.
