[ [ MOTD 2/24/2017 ] ]
Softness speaks well to people
Though at times, fierceness is what is most useful
The immense power of the star
Presses us but lightly;
We have grown in tune with it;
Origin stories as expected or otherwise -
At night, the mind unreels all its unheard implications
The body's immense role in cognition, not yet globally understood
Think as a vine thinks up along the ancient monolith
Think as the wind speaks across the tumbleweed plain
[ QUOTATION 2/24 ]
Phillips -- who has written with beguiling nuance about such variousness of our psychic experience as the importance of "fertile solitude," the value of missing out, and the rewards of being out of balance -- examines how "our virulent, predatory self-criticism [has] become one of our greatest pleasures," reaching across the space-time of culture to both revolt against and pay homage to Susan Sontag's masterwork Against Interpretation. - Maria Popova, Brain Pickings - Against Self-Criticism: Adam Phillips on How Our Internal Critics Enslave Us, the Stockholm Syndrome of the Superego, and the Power of Multiple Interpretations

Newest-ish by Me
