A Quote by Domus Ulixes on people, advantage, stupid, growing, wisdom, blend in, and fear

There are two kinds of people, the ones that blend in, and those who do not seek to be accepted into an existing group only if they change who they are. These last are the people who wish to remain themselves. Both of these people fear. The first one will do all sorts of stupid things that they will regret in the future, if it were only to be accepted. And the other kind will choose not to do this stuff and show the world who they are. They to will do things that is regretted in the future. Because both will encounter a kind of sinister people, that will take advantage of the inexperience and their quest for social contact. In the end, it doesn't matter what kind of person you are to be accepted in society. Nor will it matter how much people will like you. What matters is in how well you will recognize the people that just want to take advantage, and those that don't.

A Quote by Rabban Gamaliel on government, caution, interests, and advantage

Be careful in your relations with the government; for they draw no man close to themselves except for their own interests. They appear as friends when it is to their advantage, but they do not stand by a man in his time of stress.
