[I Have Always Swung Back And Forth Between Alienation And Relatedness. As A Child, I Would Run Away From The Beatings, From The Obscene Words, And Always Knew That If I Could Run Far Enough, Then Any Leaf, Any Insect, Any Bird, Any Breeze Could Bring Me To My True Home. I Knew I Did Not Belong Among People. Whatever They Hated About Me Was A Human Thing; The Nonhuman World Has Always Loved Me. I Can't Remember When It Was Otherwise. But I Have Been Emotionally Crippled By This. There Is Nothing Romantic About Being Young And Angry, Or Even About Turning That Anger Into Art. I Go Through The Motions Of Living In Society, But Never Feel A Part Of It. When My Family Threw Me Away, Every Human On Earth Did Likewise.]

Quotes About Unequal Education

"The moment men begin to care more for education than for religion they begin to care more for ambition than for education. It is no longer a world in which the souls of all are equal before heaven, but a world in which the mind of each is bent on achieving unequal advantage over the other. There begins to be a mere vanity in being educated whether it be self-educated or merely state-educated. Education ought to be a searchlight given to a man to explore everything, but very specially the things most distant from himself. Education tends to be a spotlight; which is centered entirely on himself. Some improvement may be made by turning equally vivid and perhaps vulgar spotlights upon a large number of other people as well. But the only final cure is to turn off the limelight and let him realize the stars." - Author: G.K. Chesterton
