AFAIK you can not do something like eval("MessageBox.Show(""Hi"")")

Anyone who doesn't take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted
in large ones either.

A thinker sees his own actions as experiments and questions--as attempts to
find out something. Success and failure are for him answers above all.
