    Werner Doehner, the last survivor of the burning of the Hindenburg​ in 1937, died on November 8, aged 90.
    The truth, I think, is this: that since the triumph of what was called rationalism, we have successfully cultivated everything except reason - G.K. Chesterton

    A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him saying, 'you are mad, you are not like us' - St. Anthony
