proverbs

All maxims have their antagonist maxims; proverbs should be sold in pairs, a single one being but a half truth.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
William of Baskerville:
Are you not confusing love with lust?



Adso of Melk:
Am I? I don't know. I want only her own good, I want her to be happy, I want to save her from her poverty.



William of Baskerville:
Oh, dear.



Adso of Melk:
Why oh dear?



William of Baskerville:
You are in love.



Adso of Melk:
Is that bad?



William of Baskerville:
For a monk, it does present certain problems.



Adso of Melk:
But doesn't St. Thomas Aquinas praise love above all other virtues?



William of Baskerville:
Yes, the love of God, Adso. The love of God.



Adso of Melk:
And the love of woman?



William of Baskerville:
Of woman, Thomas Aquinas knew precious little, but the scriptures are very clear. Proverbs warns us, "Woman takes possession of man's precious soul," while Ecclesiastics tells us, "More bitter than death is woman."



Adso of Melk:
Yes, but what do you think, master?



William of Baskerville:
Well, of course I don't have the benefit of your experience, but I find it difficult to convince myself that God would have introduced such a foul being into creation without endowing her with some virtures. Hmm? How peaceful life would be without love, Adso, how safe, how tranquil, and how dull.

Claire Gibson:
Oh, do be quiet child! All proverbs are vulgar, and I do believe that is the vulgarist of them all! I really think you're catching Roger Hamley's coarseness, Cynthia.

With proverbs thus each other entertain;

"Fortune assists the boldest," I reply;
"A hasty man," quote he, "ne'er wanted woe";
"Labour is light where love," quote I, "doth pay";

That hunger broke stone walls, that dogs must eat,
That meat was made for mouths, that the gods sent not
Corn for the rich men only. With these shreds
They vented their complainings, which being answered
And a petition granted them, a strange one,
To break the heart of generosity,
And make bold power look pale, they threw their caps
As they would hang theMore [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
