In the introduction of the first edition of his Kritik der reinen Vernunft, Kant writes of the history of philosophy as a "field of ruins". Little did he know about Wikipedia where I see former administrators who banned such and such contributors (for whatever reason) being themselves banned some months later. As much as Jimmy Whales deserves the Nobel Peace Prize, as much many of his servants don't to say the least...

Darius Milhaud - String Quartet No. 9, Op. 140

This user must be the only one from whom some here expect and even demand immediate, complete and absolute perfection at first shot. We're all equal on Wikipedia except for those who are more equal than the others.

  • Gaspard Hauser sings:

I have come, calm orphan,
Rich with my only tranquil eyes,
To the men of the great cities:
They did not find me clever.

At twenty years old a new trouble
Under the name of amorous flames
Made me find women beautiful:
They did not find me beautiful.

Though without a country and without a king
And very brave not being so,
I wanted to die in war:
Death did not want me.

Am I born too early or too late?
What am I doing in this world?
O you all, my sorrow is deep:
Pray for poor Gaspard!

(Paul Verlaine)

Not to boast but out of thankfulness to those who were kind enough to award me these wiki laurels.
