As is always the case, the more cloudy and confused the conception conveyed by a word, with the more aplomb and self-assurance do people use that word, pretending that what is understood by it is so simple and clear that it is not worth . while even to discuss what it actually means.

Balaam’s Ass; (No Good Deed Goes Unpunished)

Balaam, a prophet, was sent to curse his King’s enemies, the Israelites. He rode his faithful donkey toward the Israelites until an angel appeared on the road. Only his donkey could see the angel, so she veered into a field. Balaam beat her until she was back on the road.
Further down, again the angel appeared, again the ass moved aside, and was again harshly beaten.
The third time the angel appeared he blocked the road entirely so they couldn’t pass. The donkey lay down in the road while Balaam beat her mercilessly.
At that point the donkey looked up and asked him, “Why are you beating me? Haven’t I been a good donkey?”
When Balaam agreed, yes she had, he could suddenly see the fearsome angel standing before him, sword in hand.
The angel told him to proceed, and Balaam went and showered blessings upon Israel instead of curses.

They never say to you, “What does his voice sound like? What games does he love best? Does he collect butterflies?” Instead, they demand, “How old is he? How many brothers has he? How much money does his father make?” Only from these figures do they think they have learned anything about him.

Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again.

No single event can awaken within us a stranger whose existence we had never suspected. To live is to be slowly born.

“If I were to be totally sincere, I would say that I do not know why I live and why I do not stop living. The answer probably lies in the irrational character of life which maintains itself without reason.”

The desperate need today is not for a greater number of intelligent people, or gifted people, but for deep people.

Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do. 
Cicero, 106 BC - 43 BC (via thefreelioness)
