By Mark W. Gura, CW Brown,  Rosi Guastella “The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed.” ― Carl Gustav Jung   A-hole Philosopher: Relationships are not what you think they are.

Does the world need more people?” – A-hole Philosopher     A-hole Philosopher: You are NOT selfish when you don’t have children and you are not a saint if you do have children.
