Good & Evil

I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?
~ John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Excellent Habit

We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence, then,
is not an act, but a habit.

Kisses

We kissed for about
the thousandth time,
No promises,
no demands,
Just solid rebuilding
of shattered trust.
~ Ellen Hopkins, Crank

Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.

Fence In or Out

You can fence yourselves in,
but you cannot forever fence it out.
