aim higher

Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so. Aim above morality.


Strangely, I seem to be out of words this morning. I'll just leave you to meditate on these words of Thoreau.

I'd be delighted to hear what you have to share....

Morality excludes everyone and everything that doesn't fit in the box. Love includes without exception. That Thoreau was one wise man.

What Deb said. So true. We need a certain amount of structure, and morality plays a part, but to be blindly ruled by anyone's rules except or own, and even those always subject to question, seems to me lacking in understanding of what it is to be alive and to live.
