Then I can't talk to him anymore. On the flip side, if I try talking to the double before removing the dog, the dog freaks out and starts attacking me! Showing 1 - 3 of 3 comments. Version 1.
The answer could vary on this in that the body double appears in one of several differing places each play through. As Corvo I used possesion on the gaurds and hid the bodies well, a sleep dart on the dog and hid its body before it was noticed, then watched the body double freak out. He will run a short distance away and cower. Eventually, it took a bit, he stopped being afraid and I was able to speak with him.
The key was to make sure the bodies were all well hidden from him. I had this problem except the double was guarded by 2 clockworks. He flipped out and I couldn't talk to him. Try to do your duty and you will know at once what you are worth. Tell me with whom you associate, and I will tell you who you are.
If I know what your business is, I know what can be made of you. It is only men of practical ability, knowing their powers and using them with moderation and prudence, who will be successful in worldly affairs. It is a great error to take oneself for more than one is, or for less than one is worth.
Everything that frees our spirit without giving us control of ourselves is ruinous. A man is really alive only when he delights in the good-will of others.
Generosity wins favor for every one, especially when it is accompanied by modesty. So obstinately contradictory is man that you cannot compel him to his advantage, yet he yields before everything that forces him to his hurt.
We more readily confess to errors, mistakes and shortcomings in our conduct than in our thought. Keep your entire body active as you would in a normal plank. We asked our employers if we could do it and they agreed. What fills the space between them? I do it as a way to use my gifts to serve humanity and because I love it. View all 9 comments.
I see no fault committed which I could not have committed myself. Hatred is active displeasure, envy passive. We need not wonder that envy turns so soon to hatred. There is something magical in rhythm; it even makes us believe that we possess the sublime. The most foolish of all errors is for clever young men to believe that they forfeit their originality in recognizing a truth which has already been recognized by others.
No one should desire to live in irregular circumstances; but if by chance a man falls into them, they test his character and show how much determination he is capable of. Ingratitude is always a kind of weakness. I have never known men of ability to be ungrateful. There are people who make no mistakes because they never wish to do anything worth doing. We may learn to know the world as we please: it will always retain a bright and a dark side.
Enthusiasm is of the greatest value, so long as we are not carried away by it.
We cannot escape a contradiction in ourselves; we must try and resolve it. If the contradiction comes from others, it does not affect us: it is their affair. To live in a great idea means to treat the impossible as though it were possible. It is just the same with a strong character; and when an idea and a character meet, things arise which fill the world with wonder for thousands of years.
Against the great superiority of another there is no remedy but love. Fools and wise folk are alike harmless. It is the half-wise and the half-foolish, who are the most dangerous. It is not enough to know, we must also apply; it is not enough to will, we must also do. Nothing is more highly to be prized than the value of each day. A man is well equipped for all the real necessities of life if he trusts his senses, and so cultivates them that they remain worthy of being trusted.
There is no surer way of evading the world than by Art; and no surer way of uniting with it than by Art.
Even in the moments of highest happiness and deepest misery we need the Artist. The dignity of Art appears perhaps most conspicuously in music; for in music there is no material to be deducted. It is wholly form and intrinsic value, and it raises and ennobles all that it expresses. We more readily confess to errors, mistakes and shortcomings in our conduct than in our thought.
A man must cling to the belief that the incomprehensible is comprehensible; otherwise he would not try to fathom it. There are two things of which a man cannot be careful enough: of obstinacy if he confines himself to his own line of thought; of incompetency, if he goes beyond it. Every one knows how to value what he has attained in life; most of all the man who thinks and reflects in his old age. He has a comfortable feeling that it is something of which no one can rob him.

And an interesting discussion criticizing aphorisms: Susan Sontag: Aphorisms and the Commodification of Wisdom. No action exists in a vacuum. An externality affects someone without them agreeing to it. As with unintended consequences, externalities can be positive or negative. Understanding the types of externalities and the impact they have in our lives can help us improve our decision making, and how we interact with the world.
Externalities provide useful mental models for understanding complex systems. Externalities may affect uninvolved third parties which make them a form of market failure —an inefficient allocation of resources. We both create and are subject to externalities. Most are very minor but compound over time. They can inflict numerous second-order effects. Someone reclines their seat on an airplane. They get the benefit of comfort. The person behind bears the cost of discomfort by having less space.
One family member leaves their dirty dishes in the sink.
They get the benefit of using the plate. Someone else bears the cost of washing it later. Over time, even minor externalities can cause significant strain in our lives and relationships. To understand externalities it is first useful to consider second-order consequences. What will the wider repercussions of our actions be? Hardin gives the example of the Prohibition Amendment in the U. In , lawmakers banned the production and sale of alcoholic beverages throughout the entire country.
This was in response to an extended campaign by those who believed alcohol was evil. The addition of 61 words to the American Constitution changed the social and legal landscape for over a decade.
Policymakers presumably thought they could make the change and people would stop drinking. But Prohibition led to numerous externalities. Few were willing to suddenly give it up without a fight. The demand was more than strong enough to ensure a black-market supply re-emerged. Wealthy people stockpiled alcohol in their homes before the ban went into effect.
Thousands of speakeasies and gin joints flourished. Former alcohol producers simply sold the ingredients for people to make their own. Gangsters like Al Capone made their fortune smuggling, and murdered his rivals in the process. Crime gangs undermined official institutions. Tax revenues plummeted. People lost their jobs. Prisons became overcrowded and bribery commonplace. Thousands died from crime and drinking unsafe homemade alcohol.
