Weißt du's noch nicht? Wirf aus den Armen die Leere
zu den Räumen hinzu, die wir atmen; vielleicht daß die Vögel
die erweiterte Luft fühlen mit innigerm Flug.

Sometimes in the state that the world is in, I wonder should I bother trying to help anyone?

It's precisely *why* one should bother helping. A ripple in the ocean...

@Vor:

Oh, don't mind me. I'm packing and moving house. As you know.

It's all the damn *books* that are a real pain in the ass. So heavy. I'm taking my vinyl and computers myself, but movers for all else.

Oops, this is Thought of the Day, not Holley's Moving Gripes... hm, let's see... I was reading a book of Kafka short stories last night, let's see what happens if I open to a random page and that will be my Thought of the Day:

I closed my eyes, opened a page, and pointed to a random sentence. I got:

My memory's failing, and I can't keep track of so many things anymore.


No, that won't do. :( I should have chosen Rumi....

Going Home by Wislawa Szymborska

(translated by Stanislaw Baranczak and Clare Cavanagh)


He came home. Said nothing.
It was clear, though, that something had gone wrong.
He lay down fully dressed.
Pulled the blanket over his head.
Tucked up his knees.
He's nearly forty, but not at the moment.
He exists just as he did inside his mother's womb,
clad in seven walls of skin, in sheltered darkness.
Tomorrow he'll give a lecture
on homeostasis in metagalactic cosmonautics.
For now, though, he has curled up and gone to sleep.

I have no words to say it, and I feel that my thoughts become a senseless language of signs.

*AHEM!*

I see that for profundity it's time to grab a book, open to a random page, close my eyes and choose a sentence.

OK, the book is The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe.

The random sentence/phrase chosen was:

"But anyway, there was no reason for him to feel any obligation or responsibility for her smile. By his disappearance she would only lose a fragment of her life, one that could easily be replaced by a radio or a mirror"

That, ah, wasn't what I had in mind... :rolleyes:

I think the last time I did this I got something similar too...

I see you miss me a bit... ;)

Ok, so here's a thought...

- Humanity's true moral test, its fundamental test, consists of its attitude toward those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect, human kind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.

- Milan Kundera, (The Unbearable Lightness of Being)

Thank you, Atma, now we are back on track.


"There are two reasons, then, for being content with whatever happens to you. The first is that it was meant just for you, prescribed for you, and preserved for you like a thread woven into your destiny from the very beginning. The second is that whatever happens to the individual contributes to the health, wholeness, and survival of the entire universe. You destroy the symmetry and continuity of the whole if you cut away even one part or remove a single cause. And that's what you do, to the extent you're able, every time you whine and complain - mutilate the whole by amputating the parts."

- Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
