In the story of the two quarelling cats and the monkey, no one asks the cake about its opinion. Then I would prefer to be the monkey and we would have an end-of-ideology and politics beginning right here.
If silence were your only friend, know that the universe understands you. If solitude is your only company, know that loneliness has left you. Should fame and wealth find you -know that it is much better than your finding them. For you shall still have silence as your best friend.
