Ууган маань шүлэг зохиогоод би аяыг нь хийж "Хослон дуулъя" гэдэг дуу төрж, Ууган Оюундэлгэртэй дуулсан түүхтэй. Үзэл суртлын шалтгаанаар Жон Лэнноны нэрийг нэрлэж болдоггүй цаг байлаа. Тийм учир

"Одтой тэнгэрт мишээхээр
Орчлон дэлхийг гэрэлтүүлэхээр
Онгон талдаа саран гийв үү"

гэж зохиосны Саран гэдэг үгний далд утга нь Жон Лэннон болой. Мөн ая дан дотор нь Жон Лэнноны "Jealous Guy" дууны нэгэн фразыг шургуулсныг минь тэр болгон хүн анзаарахгүй. Үүнийг бол Ууган бид хоёр л мэддэг байв.

With Tocqueville, Strauss would have argued that the regime shapes human political action in so fundamental a way that the very souls appear different. For this reason, among others, social science could never hope to be "scientific" in the sense of the natural sciences, which can be confident that the phenomena it studies do not vary from place to place [...] Strauss's view certainly alerts one to the possibility that political life may be closely linked to deception. Indeed, it suggests that deception is the norm in political life, and the hope, to say nothing of the expectation, of establishing a politics that can dispense with it is the exception.
Hoyort, Strauss-iin asuudliig bur ugaas ni olj hardag, yamar ch zuiliig buren utgaar ni oilgohiig charmaidag arga baril ni tevcheerguy, yumand system-teygeer handdagguy bidnii huvid asar tom ulger jishee boloh uchirtay.

Hervee husvel Strauss-iin arga baril, nuluunii talaar shavi Werner Dannhauser-iin bichsen Becoming Naïve Again gesen uguulliig unshihiig sanal bolgoyo:
Leo Strauss taught us how to read a book. We learned that books were wholes, and that it was safest to assume that they were perfect wholes [...] So we would read books carefully, line by line if possible, and we found that a great book is indeed a magic structure. It is wonderful- literally full of wonders, a house of many mansions, secret rooms, labyrinthine passages [...] He trained us to see things as they come to sight, to let them appear without the distortions modern opinion imposes upon them, and, yes, to let them speak to us. That meant we had to divest ourselves of many habits, including the habit of viewing things as budding social scientists. We learned what is, perhaps, hardest of all to learn: to become a bit more naive again.
