It is a great misfortune to be alone, my friends; and it must be believed that solitude can quickly destroy reason.”   —   Jules Verne

(This explains a lot of the irrational behavior of many of our elders.  Whether single, widowed or divorced, even though many claim a preference for solitude, the longer they’re alone the more addled they seem to get.  Do your best to visit shut-ins, or at least speak to them on the phone frequently.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

We may brave human laws, but we cannot resist natural ones.”   —   Jules Verne

(Our very first Jules Verne quotation, since I’ve been posting the spoilers!  I think that, since Jules’ time, man has learned to employ certain natural laws, in order to brave other natural ones.  However, the individual – physical – human being is still very subject to natural laws.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
