One certainly has a soul; but how it came to allow itself to be enclosed in a body is more than I can imagine.  I only know if once mine gets out, I’ll have a bit of a tussle before I let it get in again to that of any other.

Always laugh when you can, it is cheap medicine.
   —  George Gordon Byron
More commonly known as “Lord Byron”
Tim Naftali, the former director of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library who teaches history at New York University, said that it isn’t out of the ordinary for presidents to appoint cabinet members with differing viewpoints.
What is “unusual” about the incoming Trump administration, he said, is that his core White House leadership team doesn’t have the administrative background that’s useful in “managing policy differences.”
“The key here is not the fact that these are smart, successful people who view the world differently,” Mr. Naftali said. “That’s not new.  It’s the fact that the center of the operation has absolutely no experience managing policy differences.”

A mistress never is nor can be a friend.  While you agree, you are lovers; and when it is over, anything but friends.
