The Call

We are kings and queens at birth,
Time is wealth upon this earth,
Listen closely, heed the call,
Step outside the castle wall.

If anyone says that the best life of all is to sail the sea, and then adds that I must not sail upon a sea where shipwrecks are a common occurrence and there are often sudden storms that sweep the helmsman in an adverse direction, I conclude that this man, although he lauds navigation, really forbids me to launch my ship.
Seneca

Be vigilant when the voices of division hijack emotion to further callous ideologies. Treat certainty with suspicion. Never place national sentiment above humanity. Diversity is the real beauty in life. Celebrate it, protect it.

"Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren’t they? They’re all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you’re born, you’re on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don’t want to know about you. They don’t want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you’re preborn, you’re fine; if you’re preschool, you’re fucked." .. (George Carlin)

Writing and reading decrease our sense of isolation. When writers make us shake our heads with the exactness of their prose and their truths, and even make us laugh about ourselves or life, our buoyancy is restored. We are given a shot at dancing with, or at least clapping along with, the absurdity of life, instead of being squashed by it over and over again. It’s like singing on a boat during a terrible storm at sea. You can’t stop the raging storm, but singing can change the hearts and spirits of the people who are together on that ship.
Anne Lamott

The same line of argument that takes individual credit for the real or imaginary achievement of an artificially defined group can be used to justify the subjection and humiliation of individuals for the real or imagined delinquencies of the same group.
Isaac Asimov - ‘I, Asimov’

Ruins

Nature has no mind, no mood,
No memories,
It does not brood
Like we do,
It cannot see
The colour blue.

Beauty is a word we use
When feelings leave
Us lost, confused,
Who are you
To take a lie
And make it true?

Freedom is mythology,
Independence
Is fantasy,
It kills love,
Cutting the hand
To fit the glove.
