The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.

So put your damn mask on, please.

There are decades in which nothing happens and weeks in which decades happen.

| Vladimir Lenin
