    oshiete



    Hello.




    “Major Major had been born too late and too mediocre. Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity,
    and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them. With Major Major it had been all three. Even among men lacking all
    distinction he inevitably stood out as a man lacking more distinction than all the rest, and people who met him were
    always impressed by how unimpressive he was.”

    — Joseph Heller, "Catch-22"

    “Sometimes I seem to see a difficulty, but then again I don't see it.”

    — Gottlob Frege

    Welcome nagini,

    Wasn't "Nagini" the name of Lord Voldemort's female snake in the Harry Pottter books ?

    with kind wishes

    Hi nagini,

    Welcome to Buddhism Without Boundaries!

    Forrest Gump, Catch 22 and Gottlob Frege? I don't see the connection.

    Yes, that is correct. And yes, I'm essentially a novice with respect to Buddhism.

    Thank you both for the warm welcome.
