Supposing I was to tell you that it's just Beauty that's calling me, the beauty of the far off and unknown, the need of the freedom of great wide spaces, the joy of wandering on and on — in quest of the secret which is hidden over there, beyond the horizon? Eugene O’Neill ☘️🍂

“No, they don't want to be free. Slavery means security — of a kind, the only kind they have courage for. It means they need not to think. They have only to obey orders from owners who are, in turn, their slaves!” Eugene O’Neill 🍀

Freedom demands initiative, courage, the need to decide what life must mean to oneself. To many, that is terror. They explain away their spiritual cowardice by whining that the time for individualism is past, when it is their courage to possess their own souls which is dead. 1/2

I hear you say "Why?" Always "Why?" You see things; and you say "Why?" But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?" Shaw, not Robert Kennedy as often attributed 🍃

To guarantee a man’s freedom on condition you approve his moral character is to abolish all freedom whatsoever, as every man's liberty is at the mercy of a moral indictment which any fool can trump up against everyone who violates custom, whether as a prophet or as a rascal. Shaw

“No age or condition is without its heroes. The least incapable general in a nation is its Cæsar, the least imbecile statesman its Solon, the least confused thinker its Socrates, the least commonplace poet its Shakespeare.” Shaw 🌿
