“Life can only be understood backwards;
but it must be lived forwards.”
“I have been and still am a seeker,
but I have ceased to question stars and books;
I have begun to listen to the teaching
my blood whispers to me.”
“Deep in the human unconscious
is a pervasive need for a logical universe
that makes sense.
But the real universe
is always one step beyond logic.”
“Any fool can know.
The point is to understand.”
“Just because you don’t understand
it doesn’t mean it isn’t so.”
“To learn is not to know;
there are the learners and the learned.
Memory makes the one,
philosophy the others.”
“It’s always about timing.
If it’s too soon, no one understands.
If it’s too late, everyone’s forgotten.”

“Because it’s no longer enough to be a decent person.
It’s no longer enough to shake our heads
and make concerned grimaces at the news.
True enlightened activism
is the only thing
that can save humanity from itself.”
