Dozed off once, twice, thrice in the gymnasium. I’m really sorry, we tried to listen, but the bass was just so strong and the voices of the speakers were reduced to mere undecipherable gurgles. I leaned closer, but I soon found my head dropping into Nemo’s Slumberland.
“A gift consists not in what is done or given, but in the intention of the giver or doer.”
[Lucius Annaeus Seneca, Moral Essays, Volume III: de Beneficiis]
