When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.

– D.H. Lawrence

A quote and a constant reminder


One thought on “A quote and a constant reminder

  1. And to finish those lines from “Escape”:

    Cool, unlying life will rush in,
    and passion will make our bodies taut with power,
    we shall stamp our feet with new power
    and old things will fall down,
    we shall laugh, and institutions will curl up like
    burnt paper.”
