    Disagree. I would say "Agree" to: There is little that's romantic in slums.

    Sometimes people make their own romance/beauty in horrible situations. They are self-determined that poverty, evil, and violence will not strip them of their right to seek enjoyment in life. Others seek beauty (romance) in very ordinary or else quite unusual things. Seeking beauty/romance is what makes us human. It is what helps us to survive unbelievably dreadful circumstances. Think of the "A Tree Grows In Brooklyn" . . . for example . . .

    -----------
    A TREE GROWS IN BROOKLYN, by Betty Smith

    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038190/quotes

    Katie Nolan (young daughter) : Out the window, our tree they killed it!
    Johnny Nolan aka The Brooklyn Thrush (poor, alcoholic, but optimistic, "singing waiter," ‘PAPA’): Well, would you look at that now.
    Katie Nolan: They didn't have any right to kill it did they papa!
    Johnny Nolan aka The Brooklyn Thrush: Now wait a minute. They didn't kill it. Why they couldn't kill that tree!
    Katie Nolan: Promise?
    Johnny Nolan aka The Brooklyn Thrush: Why sure baby. Don't tell me that tree is gonna lay down and die that easily. Look at that tree. See where it's coming from. Right up outta that cement! Didn't nobody plant it. Didn't ask the cement to grow. It just couldn't help growing so much it just pushed that old cement out of the way. Now when you bust it with something like that, can't anybody help it, like... like that little ole bird up there. He didn't ask anybody could he sing and he certainly didn't take any lessons. He's so full of singing it just has to bust out someplace. Why they could cut that ole tree right down to the ground and a root would push up someplace else in the cement.

    Fully agreed! What goes around comes around!

    The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

    And also agree about Oscar Wilde. He's brilliant, so here's another of his:

    I always pass on good advice. It is the only thing to do with it. It is never of any use to oneself. (from An Ideal Husband)

    ehehhe, That's funny! Any advice is normally useless for us

    If you can't fight your enemy, then try to confuse them!

    Agree, strongly! (i like that one Aila)

    It's better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak up and remove all doubt. - maybe Abraham Lincoln ?

    Hi, Aila! do you mean: a loud talking nervous wreck will people around him easily feel restless?

    mostly agreed!
