"Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society." 

                   Doris Lessing (The Golden Notebook)

                                Here's to the crazy ones.


              The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers.

                   The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things differently.
They're not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.

You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, 
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine.
They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?

Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?

Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
While some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world,

are the ones who do.

adapted from the writings of Jack Kerouac)

“Do you know what people really want?

Everyone, I mean. Everybody in the world is thinking: I wish there was just one other person I could really talk to, who could really understand me, who’d be kind to me. That’s what people really want, if they’re telling the truth.” 
— Doris Lessing (The Golden Notebook)

"There are things known and there are things unknown, and in between are the doors of perception.” 

~ Aldous Huxley~

“Make up a story... For our sake and yours forget your name in the street; tell us what the world has been to you in the dark places and in the light.  Don't tell us what to believe, what to fear.  Show us belief's wide skirt and the stitch that unravels fear's caul.”

Toni Morrison, The Nobel Lecture In Literature, 1993 

“The hero’s journey always begins with the call. One way or another, a guide must come to say, 'Look, you’re in Sleepy Land. Wake. Come on a trip. There is a whole aspect of your consciousness, your being, that’s not been touched. So you’re at home here? Well, there’s not enough of you there.' And so it starts." 

 ~ Joseph Campbell ~

To a sincere student, every day is a fortunate day.  Time passes but he never lags behind.  Neither glory nor shame can move him.  Censure yourself, never another.  Do not discuss right and wrong.  Some things, though right, were considered wrong for generations.  Live with cause and leave results to the great law of the universe.  Pass each day in peaceful contemplation.  


"Beauty appears when something is completely and absolutely and openly itself."

                        Deena Metzger, "Entering the Ghost River"

"In the final analysis, love is not this sentimental something that we talk about. It’s not merely an emotional something. Love is creative, understanding goodwill for all men. It is the refusal to defeat any individual. When you rise to the level of love, of its great beauty and power, you seek only to defeat evil systems. Individuals who happen to be caught up in that system, you love, but you seek to defeat the system."

                                   ~Martin Luther King, Jr~
