    1. Self-concept also differs from self-esteem: self-concept is a cognitive or descriptive component of one's self (e.g. "I am a fast runner"), while self-esteem is evaluative and opinionated (e.g. "I feel good about being a fast runner").
    1. Chārudatta. [Enters and looks about.] How wonderfully splendid is the court-room. For it seems an ocean, Whose waters are the king’s advisers, deep In thought; as waves and shells it seems to keep The attorneys; and as sharks and crocodiles It has its spies that stand in waiting files; Its elephants and horses represent The cruel ocean-fish on murder bent; As if with herons of the sea, it shines With screaming pettifoggers’ numerous lines; While in the guise of serpents, scribes are creeping Upon its statecraft-trodden shore: the court The likeness of an ocean still is keeping, To which all harmful-cruel beasts resort.14

      This line describing the courtrom when Charudatta looks around answered my question about Sanskrit theatre from our My Favorite Things post. I was curious how the characters set the scene when this type of theatre uses no scenery. The character enters the scene and describes in great detail the setting to better paint a picture for the audience. I love how it is done specifically in similies and metaphors in this little monologue.

    1. ocial networks is relational data

      This is different than traditional social science which focuses on independent and dependent variables. For SNA, all data is related to all other data; no variables are mutually exclusive. This is why SNA is fundamentally descriptive.

    1. interaction of two actors.

      Excellent! Therefore SNA requires three points of data--Node A, Node B and the link between them. There is no dependent and independent variable. The means there is no inferential or predictive questions. Questions are more descriptive and comparative.

    1. individuals, groups, or systems.

      This perspective of looking at individuals in categories is the foundation of statistics--two variables that are mutually exclusive and the goal is to see if they relate in any way. SNA is very different--all variables are related and dependent. That is why SNA is descriptive--can't do predictive without mutually exclusive variables.

    1. I wanted all of it—the palm trees, the yachts bobbing beside the hard-currency mansions, the concrete-and-glass condominiums preening at their own reflections in the azure pool water below, the implicit availability of relations with amoral women.

    1. And to understand that about which they speak?

      I wouldn't go that far. I'm more inclined to believe that rhetoric enables men to speak, and to give everyone else listening the impression the speaker understands that about which they speak.

      Maybe they do understand, but this understanding shouldn't be a prerequisite. An added incentive, as it were.

    1. For one body many bodies of men came together, men greatly purposing great things, of whom some possessed great wealth, some the glory of ancient and noble lineage, some the vigor of personal strength, and others the power of acquired cleverness.
