    Professor Ranginui Walker

     

    “When you’re in jail, a good friend will be trying to bail you out. A best friend will be in the cell next to you saying, ‘Damn, that was fun’.”

    “Learn from the mistakes of others. You can never live long enough to make them all yourself.”

    “I never forget a face, but in your case I’ll be glad to make an exception.”

    Three blind men find themselves in the presence of the Great Elephant. Each, trembling with fear & awe, stumble forward & reach out their hands to discover its nature for themselves. One takes hold of the tail, one a leg, one a tusk. And each is overcome with joy at having directly discovered the nature of the Great Elephant.
    The blind man holding the tail announces, ‘The Great Elephant is a broom that cleanses & sweeps all before it.”
    The blind man holding the leg is surprised, & protests, “No, the Great Elephant is a magnificent pillar towering above us, guarding us & keeping us safe.”

    The blind man holding the tusk is astonished & shouts “No, you’re both wrong. The Great Elephant is a plough that furrows the earth that we may grow crops & have plenty.”
    And they fell to fighting & there was no peace in the land.

    ‘Arrogance diminishes wisdom.’
    Arab proverb

    a model of extemporanea.
    And love is a thing that can never go wrong,
    and I am Marie of Rumania. ”
