Thought for the day

I the Hartford Courant's thought for the day is a quote from James Baldwin (1924-1987):

The price one pays for pursuing any profession, or calling,
is an intimage knowledge of it's ugly side.

This civil servant says Amen brother to that.

And then there is that famous, yet oft separated Nietzschism:

He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you.

That makes me shudder.
