“Lao Tse said: ‘The thing about the desert people always seem to forget about is the wind. It never stops, and your mouth and eyes have no protection from it. Wind has swiftly carried your open society around the globe, and I am sorry. It will one day will wear it down, fill it and bury it. In the desert, attackers move as fast as the blowing sand itself.’”
This is not really a quote from Lao Tse or anyone. I stayed up for 40 hours, followed by 16 hours sleep which just ended with reading that paragraph in a book. I almost let myself forget it until i realized it’s not from any old book, it’s from my brain just now. Not that i mind having inspired quotes dropped on me, but it’s springtime! This is too heavy for spring, i’m goin outside!
