“The human race is an unfair and stupid competition. A lot of the runners don’t get decent sneakers or clean drinking water.
Some runners are born with a massive head start, every possible help along the way, and still the referees seem to be on their side.
It’s not surprising that a lot of people have given up competing altogether and gone to sit in the grandstand, eat junk food, and shout abuse.”

“There on the mountain they saw him,
really saw him, saw his light.
We all know that if we really see him we die.
But isn’t that what is required of us?
Then, perhaps, we will see each other, too.”
Madeleine L’Engle 1918-2007
