“The failure of just one person to join, to participate, to do whatever he or she can… may mean that there is just one too few to win the fight“

from Douglas Moore’s Art of Quotation

Art of Quotation

“What can you or I do? Alone, almost nothing. Yet one person – you alone – can make the difference. . . .

The failure of just one person to join, to participate, to do whatever he or she can – your failure or my failure – may mean that there is just one too few to win the fight

for sanity, and so leave the world on the road to destruction. Each of us, all of us, must do what we can.”

Archibald Cox, lawyer, professor, special prosecutor/ Watergate

Something like whiskey by Orhan Veli Kanık

There’s something like whiskey in the air
Makes you feel down, down . . .
If you burn with longing, missing her
When your girl is somewhere else
And you’re here
It makes you feel rough, rough . . .

There’s something like whiskey in the air
It makes a man drunk, drunk.

translated by George Messo
