The very strong message of this work is the following; Never understimate the power of the personal stupidity. It can turn your life into burlesque which could become a consolation to the public but will never give you a satisfaction or support for joining to, and living the real life. The this can be earned only through thorughly dedication to anything we do, in thoughts, feelings, talks and deeds. And not by repeating the mistakes.
