One is always inclined to lay the blame on external circumstances, but nothing could explode in us if it had not been there. As a matter of fact, we are constantly living on the edge of a volcano, and there is, so far as we know, no way of protecting ourselves from a possible outburst that will destroy everybody within reach. It is certainly a good thing to preach reason and common sense, but what if you have a lunatic asylum for an audience or a crowd in a collective frenzy? There is not much difference between them because the madman and the mob are both moved by impersonal, overwhelming forces."
Author: C.G. Jung
6. "I am by nature a person suspicious of the economic machine that feeds me. And yet I am a captive of that economic machine, and my mind is structured by its lessons and demands.

I drive a truck, watch a color television, and write on a computer, but I cannot overcome the feeling that these objects and the industrial culture that produced them are temporary things, a kind of fat beast feeding on the bounty of the earth that will starve to death within the next century, or at least be severely diminished."
Author: Charles Bowden

Author: Frederick Douglass

Again, "I, who for fear of hell had condemned myself to such a prison, thought myself oftentimes to be dancing among young women, when I had no other company, but scorpions and wild beasts. My face was pale with fasting, but my mind was inflamed with desires in my cold body: and although my flesh was half-dead already, yet the flames of fleshly lust, boiled within me, etc."
Author: Martin Luther

At least, you could slip your arm throughthe bars and touch me and I will hold out my forepaw to greet you, afterretracting my claws, of course. You are carried away by appearances - myclaws and fangs and the glowing eyes frighten you no doubt. I don't blameyou. I don't know why God has chosen to give us this fierce make-up, thesame God who has created the parrot, the peacock, and the deer, whichinspire poets and painters. I would not blame you for keeping your distance— I myself shuddered at my own reflection on the still surface of a pondwhile crouching for a drink of water, not when I was really a wild beast, butafter I came under the influence of my Master and learnt to question, 'Whoam I?' Don't laugh within yourself to hear me speak thus. I'll tell you aboutmy Master presently."
Author: R.K. Narayan

Author: Rebecca West
