Freedom
Freedom is not following a river.
Freedom is following a river,
                though, if you want to.
It is deciding now by what happens now.
It is knowing that luck makes a difference.

No leader is free; no follower is free -
                the rest of us can often be free.
Most of the world are living by
creeds too odd, chancy, and habit-forming
                to be worth arguing about by reason.

If you are oppressed, wake up about
four in the morning: most places,
you can usually be free some of the time
                if you wake up before other people.

  • ". . . as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate,
    a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizon of shimmering deserts."
