5 Short Sayings


Stripping the magical elements from ancient wisdom is not betrayal of that wisdom, but loyalty to the reality it describes.

Rejecting ancient wisdom is not an extreme form of rationality, just irrational extremism of a different shade.

The hand from on high that will make it all better for us is not a force for change, but stagnation with a halo.

Flinching problems that implicate us personally blinds us to solutions, and makes those problems permanent.

You cannot change the world and leave yourself untouched.
