“you can’t live in a vacuum”




“You can’t live life in a vacuum, just listing your grievances without thinking that often people have other views of what’s going on.”

— sententious advice I recently received (May you be spared from such sermonizing.)





how I actually live:


“And these tend inward to me, and I tend outward to them,
And such as it is to be of these more or less I am,
And of these one and all I weave the song of myself.”

— Walt Whitman, “Song of Myself”



— posted by Roger W. Smith (a great admirer of Whitman, from whom I have learned and profited much)
