On we human beings’ worse times, these words apply quite aptly. They’ve been stuck in my head for a few days, and they are, although a bit bleak, quite poetic, and thus worthy of being shared.
“Is there a human alive that can look themselves in the face
Without winking, or say what they mean without drinking,
Or believe in something without thinking, “What if somebody doesn’t approve?”
Is there a soul on this Earth that isn’t too frightened to move?”*
– from “The Battle of Hampton Roads,” on The Monitor by Titus Andronicus
*NB. I am not in a bad mood and venting by posting these words. Really, I just think they’re artistically great!
