The thing is that I would like to write longer posts, but I am aware
that the longer the text, the less chance to be read…
People have almost no patience nowadays, they are not at
all interested to deepen a subject at length. Rather unfortunate…
One has thus to develop this uncommon skill of writing so concentrated and so powerfully, that things that once were pursued and wrought in a whole book, necessarily have to be conveyed in few lapidary lines.
Imagine Dante writing Divine Comedy in few lines only. Or Shakespeare
rendering his plays in no longer than a page. Quite absurd also for
Beethoven´s symphonies to be no longer than a minute.
Utterly surreal…but so it is:
Absurdity for the absurd.
If you have a message to convey you have to write absurdly
and whippingly short if you want to be heard.

Not that learning is to be despised, but that it must be allied to goodness. Intellectual capacity is sometimes found associated with the meanest moral character—with abject servility to those in high places, and arrogance to those of low estate. A man may be accomplished in art, literature, and science, and yet, in honesty, virtue, truthfulness, and the spirit of duty, be entitled to take rank after many a poor and illiterate peasant.
