These simple words are so profound & thought provoking.

"The masses have never thirsted after truth. They turn aside from evidence that is not to their taste, preferring to deify error, if error seduce them. Whoever can supply them with illusions is easily their master; whoever attempts to destroy their illusions is always their victim."

"Risk the danger of starting a fire. You may get burned, but a burn will heal, while a lifetime of living in the cold darkness will not."

"Not enough. One life is not enough.
I’d like to live twice on this sad planet,
In lonely cities, in starved villages,
To look at all evil, at the decay of bodies,
And probe the laws to which the time was subject,
Time that howled above us like a wind."

Czeslaw Milosz, from “Dawns”, trans. Czeslaw Milosz and Robert Hass
