A quote from http://www.digitaldivide.net/blog/dwarlick/view?PostID=2226

"...it is a relief that there remain people who have such love for and
experience such joy in the world that they want to see it with large
eyes and embrace it with playful mind. Renaissance people is still
among us, except that they count one less today...."

RIP
