[..I Followed Her Out The Door And Watched Her Walk Down The Road Towards Home, Hers, And The Bright Yard Light, And Her Own Bed, And Our Parents, And I Stood There For A Long Time Because I Didn't Know Where Else To Go.I Stood There Long Enough To Feel The Chill Of The Night. The Sky Was A Blanket Of Stars.Indifferent. I Repeated The Ancient Song Of Nezahualcoytl. I Stood There Long Enough To Hear My Family Singing. Why Were They Singing At Two In The Morning? I Heard The Hight, Creaky Voice Of My Mother And The Off-key But Persistent Voices Of My Little Brothers.]

"So to hold it they were compelled to dismantle many cities in the country, for in truth there is no safe way to retain them otherwise than by ruining them. And he who becomes master of a city accustomed to freedom and does not destroy it, may expect to be destroyed by it, for in rebellion it has always the watchword of liberty and its ancient privileges as a rallying point, which neither time nor benefits will ever cause it to forget. And whatever you may do or provide against, they never forget that name or their privileges unless they are disunited or dispersed, but at every chance they immediately rally to them," - Author: Niccolò Machiavelli

They do not need to walk off every cliff all by themselves. Yet they too can harbor the sense that there is more to life that they are being shown. Where is the secret hidden? Who has the key to the treasure box of More?" - Author: Barbara Brown Taylor
