Commonplace book #18

Posted by Erik on December 10, 2008

Secret? There is no secret. Anyone with eyes can see the way to live. By watching life, observing nature, and cooperating with it. Making common cause with the process of existence. By living life for itself, don’t you see? Deriving pleasure from the gift of pure being. Life is its own answer. Accept it and enjoy it day by day. Live as well as possible. Expect no more. Destroy nothing, humble nothing, look for fault in nothing. Leave unsullied and untouched all that is beautiful. Hold that which lives in all reverence. For life is given by the sovereign of our universe; given to be savored, to be luxuriated in, to be respected. But that’s no secret. You’re intelligent. You know as well as I what has to be done. – Ray Bradbury, The Martian Chronicles (with a hat-tip to Philip Carr-Gomm)

    Wonderful! Kitsune just posted a great quote too, from Dune on her blog, Little Heathen Fox. Definitely words to remember! Thanks for posting them, Eric!
