A smart answer to the question:why you don't buy a gift for your friend's birthday?("The big bang theory TVshow")
“The entire institution of gift giving make no sense! Let’s say that I go out, and I spend 50 dollars on you, it’s a laborious activity because I have to imagine what you need, whereas you know hat you need. Now I could simplify things, just giving you the 50 dollars directly, and then you could give me 50 dollars on my birthday, and son on until one of us dies leaving the other one old and 50 dollars richer. And I ask you, is it worth it ?”

years from now ,the young will ask with wonder about this day.today is history and you're part of it.
six hundred years ago when elsewhere they were footing the blame for the black death, Kazimierz the great,so-called,told the Jews,they could come to Krakow.they came,They trundled their belongings into the city. They settled. They took hold. They prospered in business, science, education, the arts. With nothing they came and with nothing they flourished. For six centuries there has been a Jewish Krakow. By this evening those six centuries are a rumor.
They never happened.
Today is history.
