Philo of Alexandria: "Be kind, for everyone you meet has a really big problem."
"If we fail to observe, and engage in some form of cogent dialogue with the questions that emerge from our depths, then they, and our ill-considered, provisional answers, will continue to operate autonomously, and we will live an unconscious, unreflective, accidental life." --James Hollis, What Matters Most
Fare forward, travelers! Not escaping from the past
Into indifferent lives, or into any future...
Not to fare well,
But fare forward, voyagers.
-- T.S. Eliot "The Dry Salvages", from Four Quartets
