Just Why Did I Want to be a 'Biblioblogger' So Badly?

It's not like winning the Nobel Peace Prize or anything. So why make a big deal when people didn't want to be my friend? Well just look at my character in terms of going through virtually every old book in the Greek library system. Look at how many posts I have written about the Letter to Theodore. My Greek friend Harry loves the πάθος of my character - the 'zeal' or 'passion' if you will. But there is bad side to it - i.e. refusing to let go of something.

Look at marriage that lasts twenty years and search for love or miracles or 'luck' if you so desire. But the reason people stay together, is because of πάθος on the part of the lover in the relationship. Things don't just 'happen' in a marriage. Things fall apart because the will of the one loving wasn't strong enough to overcome the passivity of the one being loved (either that or one of the two people is a gold digger or both people are too ugly to have a chance getting anyone else).

It may not be romantic, it may not be what Dr. Phil will tell you - but it's true nevertheless.

Just ask Plato.

So I don't know that being 'Biblioblogger' means anything really. But there are certain people who don't take no for an answer, even when it might be in their best interest to do so ...
