But not THIS future.

Winning (Wallace)

Winning is sweet, in part, not in and of itself, but because you have avoided losing.

And now must lose them (Saunders)

     None of it was real; nothing was real.
     Everything was real; inconceivably real, infinitely dear.
     These and all things started as nothing, latent within a vast energy-broth, but then we named them, and loved them, and, in this way, brought them forth.
     And now must lose them.
     I send this out to you, dear friends, before I go, in this instantaneous thought-burst, from a place where time slows and then stops and we may live forever in a single instant.
     Goodbye goodbye good—

George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

Love (Saunders)

Love, love, I know what you are.

George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo

All in your mind

The fact that it's all in your mind, even your mind, doesn't diminish it, it exalts it.

What they do

We admire what others do
better than we can.
We adore (or deplore) what they do
that we can't.

Forgotten poet

Give me one forgotten poet

Never trust

Never trust someone who considers participation interference.

Context

Out of context

What we do

It's not what we do,
it's what we do despite.

The lowest

Only the lowest
laugh at the earnest.

Is not human

Everything that is not human is true.

Is not

Without an understanding of is,
what can is not mean?
