Major topics:

  1. Thought for the day:

                                     Thus, love of a country
    Begins as attachment to our own field of action
    And comes to find that action of little importance
    Though never indifferent. History may be servitude,
    History may be freedom. See, now they vanish,
    The faces and places, with the self which, as it could, loved them,
    To become renewed, transfigured, in another pattern.

    — T.S. Eliot, Little Gidding, section III, from Four Quartets
