The Just A man who, as Voltaire wished, cultivates his garden. He who is grateful that music exists on earth. He who discovers an etymology with pleasure.

A man and a woman reading the last triplets of a certain........ He who prefers the others to be right. These people, without knowing, are saving the world. Jorge Luis Borges
