What a wonderful world

Welcome, welcome!
Did you have a nice day?
Yes? Oh, how lovely. I am delighted.

Me? Ah, thank you very much. A splendid day it was.
The more as a couple of minutes ago I happened to read one abstract of the Progress Report on Human Civilisation.

Okay, they may have chosen another title, but after reading you will agree that my title is surpassing theirs. Just go on, read it.

And as soon as you have finished, let's altogether lean back and enjoy the rest of this wonderful day.

The Peace of the Night.


  1. We are supposed to be more civilized than at any other time in history, according to Kenneth Clarke in Civilization, but it's very hard to believe sometimes.

  2. Dear jmb,
    let's say the development of positive virtues did and does not keep pace with our acquirements.
    Would you agree? :)
