"Even if the Ass travels to school to learn, as a horse he will not return"

what others do...

"Stupidity is a lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit or sense. Stupidity may be innate, assumed or reactive...Stupidity is a quality or state of being stupid, or an act or idea that exhibits properties of being stupid.... Engraving after Pieter Breughel the Elder, 1556. caption: Al rijst den esele ter scholen om leeren, ist eenen esele hij en zal gheen peert weder keeren(Even if the Ass travels to school to learn, as a horse he will not return"

"...I am as I am and so will I be."

"...from this mind I will not flee, but to you all that misjudge me, I do protest as ye may see, that I am as I am and so will I be." Sir Thomas Wyatt
"Personality is the coherent patterning of affect, behavior, cognition, and desires (goals) over time and space. ...(Ortony et al., 2005). A helpful analogy is to consider that personality is to emotion as climate is to weather. That is, what one expects is personality, what one observes at any particular moment is emotion.  "   William Revelle , Klaus R. Scherer, Personality and Emotion

Even if...

"Fear paralyses a Europe people with panthoms and machines...confronted with the murder of their brother men, proundly declare that their hands are clean...the whole world absent-mindedly turns its back on these crimes...

...Bielinsky's address Hegel himself:

With all the esteem due to your philistine philosophy,
I have the honour to inform you that even if I had the opportunity of climbing to the very top of the ladder of evolution,
I should still ask you to account for all the victims of life and history.
I do not want happiness, even gratuitous happiness,
 if my mind is not at rest concerning all my blood brothers.
Bielinsky understood that what he wanted was not the absolute of reason
but the fullness of life..."

karyotypes : 'Independent', 'satellite', 'faeders'

    "...Y chromosome in human male karyogram....the Y chromosome contains a gene, SRY, which triggers embryonic development as a male." 

"'Supergene’ determines wading birds’ sex strategy, 

Male ruffs look and behave differently around females...
...Males gather at mass breeding grounds where they juke, jump and lunge toward other males, in hopes of winning females.

Male ruffs belong to one of three different forms, each with a unique approach to mating.

'Independent' males,... are territorial and defend their bit of the breeding ground.

 ... 'satellite' males, by contrast, invade the turf of independents to steal nearby females.

A third, rarer form, called 'faeders', take advantage of their resemblance to female ruffs to interrupt coital encounters."

Vicious circle, "which came first, the chicken or the egg?"

"The chicken or the egg causality dilemma is commonly stated as "which came first, the chicken or the egg?" To ancient philosophers, the question about the first chicken or egg also evoked the questions of how life and the universe in general began...This is closely related to the economic concept of vicious circle..."

"Surely this traffic cannot be good, which spreads like a pestilence, and taints what it touches! which violates that first natural right of mankind, equality and independency..." 
Olaudah Equiano

    "Sounds the call to come together, And united we shall stand. 
    Let us live and strive for freedom..."
     National anthem of South Africa

" Olaudah Equiano writes that he was born in Nigeria in the year 1745 a member of the Igbo tribe. Aged 11, he was kidnapped, along with sisters, by native slave-holders"

"...He was the youngest son of seven brothers and sisters... During the afternoons, he and his siblings would keep watch for kidnappers who stole unattended village children to use as slaves. One day, while on watch, he and one of his sisters were seized by a kidnapper. ...Equiano ended up in the hands of a chieftain in a lovely part of the country, where he was put to work at the bellows....

Equiano was sold again, and traveled continuously until he reached Tinmah, "the most beautiful country I had yet seen in Africa." Here, he ... was sold to a wealthy African widow and her son, who was around Equiano's age. Under their care, he was barely treated as a slave, and he grew quite close with his young master. This pleasant situation was also short-lived, and ended when he was sold again.
He was then brought to a country where the inhabitants differed from him in almost all particulars....Most shocking was their tradition of sharpening their teeth and scarring themselves. Equiano feared they would force him to undergo such alteration, and notes that he would have had much more trouble integrating with Europeans later if he had been so marked....

Finally, after six or seven months of captivity, he came to the sea. The country there was also quite different from what Equiano had experienced before, though it was engaged primarily in agriculture and war like his own county was. The first thing he saw there was a slave ship waiting for cargo, which filled him the immense fear that he "had gotten into a world of bad spirits, and that they were going to kill me." When he saw the many black people chained together with expressions of profound sorrow on their faces, he realized what awaited him, and knew that he would never return to his native country. He suddenly wished to return to former slavery than to endure this new punishment. "

"Teaching Your Child Excellence Through Household Chores...Another key point to remember is, Make sure your child knows how to do a job. (example: when is snowing, "KATTY, CLEAN DOORS") You must show him, step-by-step, what to do and what standards he should meet."
