Tip: To use Pocket to save bookmarks to PEP-Web articles…

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

Pocket (formerly “Read-it-later”) is an excellent third-party plugin to browsers for saving bookmarks to PEP-Web pages, and categorizing them with tags.

To save a bookmark to a PEP-Web Article:

  • Use the plugin to “Save to Pocket”
  • The article referential information is stored in Pocket, but not the content. Basically, it is a Bookmark only system.
  • You can add tags to categorize the bookmark to the article or book section.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Dear friend,

Yesterday's mail brought two rare pieces: a report from S. Paulo (Brazil) that a ψα group has been formed there, which will apply for acceptance to the International,1 and your letter, to whose New Year's wishes I cordially respond, as [I did] twenty years ago. We are both certainly conscious of the impotence of our thoughts and the value of our basic attitude. Your enclosed paper—here reinclosed—testifies to that superior maturity that you have acquired in the last few years and in which no one approaches you. The title2 is excellent and deserved to be applied to more. For my recommendations on technique which I gave back then were essentially negative. I considered the most important thing to emphasize what one should not do, to demonstrate the temptations that work against analysis. Almost everything that is positive that one should do I left to “tact,” which has been introduced by you. But what I achieved in so doing was that the obedient ones didn't take notice of the elasticity of these dissuasions and subjected themselves to them as if they were taboos. That had to be revised at some time, without, of course, revoking the obligations.

I still have to raise an objection to your paper, which obviously doesn't belong in any journal but our own, to the effect that it is not three times as long and doesn't divide into [parts] I, II, III. There is no doubt that you still have many similar things to say, which would be very beneficial to hear.
