Quote of the day

"The good life is one inspired by love and guided by knowledge."
(Bertrand Russel)

What happen if it is inspired by knowledge and guided by love, would you say? Then maybe you know how and what to do, while following the ancestral call to unity that is whispering every moment within ourselves. The author of this quote was a pragmatic mind, but most probably he couldn't teach us how to let ourselves moved by the endless waves of our emotions, until we become one with the silence hidden behind the motion. Some call that satori, nirvana, samadhi or any other name. If you are not on your way towards Knowledge, only poetry can save you and take you there. Or love. Endless, unlimited love, even if it is directed only to one person, and not to the whole humanity. This could be the start, anyway, and you can learn how to love more later. What would you choose, the first or the second option? Why?
