In nearly all INTJs [a personality type], others are viewed and classified into two distinct groups. The vast majority of acquaintances are lumped into the category of the helpless rabble, the masses who live out their entire lives in quiet desperation. These are looked upon with quaint fondness at best, with contempt more often.
The clever donkey quickly learned to roll over while fording a particular stream, thereby dissolving much of the salt and making his burden far lighter.

The point I am concerned with is that, if you are quite sure there is a difference between right and wrong, then you are in this situation: Is that difference due to God's fiat or is it not? If it is due to God's fiat, then for God himself there is no difference between right and wrong, and it is no longer a significant statement to say that God is good. If you are going to say, as theologians do, that God is good, you must then say that right and wrong have some meaning which is independent of God's fiat, because God's fiats are good and not bad independently of the mere fact that he made them. If you are going to say that, you will then have to say that it is not only through God that right and wrong came into being, but that they are in their essence logically anterior to God.

Although she has explored at least a dozen art forms and won plaudits in several — in 1981, for example, she shared a Grammy with John Lennon for their album Double Fantasy, and in 1989 the Whitney Museum mounted a retrospective of her conceptual art — her creative endeavors are overshadowed by her status as Lennon's widow. Ono seems reconciled to that reality. Indeed, she embraces it in New York Rock, an off-Broadway musical about coming to terms with the death of a loved one.
