Thought for the Day

People who love law and sausages should absolutely watch them being made.

Nothing real is perfect, and only real things can be loved. Things that exist only in your imagination can at most be objects of infatuation. If you can't still love the law and democracy after watching it in all its cruelty, pettiness, messiness, hilarity, sentimentality, majesty, and compassion, if you can't come to love it even more after seeing it blearily shambling about in its bathrobe looking for its morning coffee, then you never loved it in the first place.
